I got carpal tunnel since I did that much speak-truth-to-power journalism

brace

I had to wear the brace pictured because I got carpal tunnel, as the doctor said, in an effort to do speak-truth-to-power journalism (samples below).

Also, I did that work mostly for free.

Then, I had to leave my apartment early.

I am not asking even for a livable wage, but just a stipend (link: https://www.gofundme.com/keep-on-with-truth-to-power-stipend).

Hopefully, this is a reasonable request because I am not simply asking for money, but for even recompense for hundreds of hours of research, interviews, writing and past-midnight (and overnight) labor.

Thank you,

Rhett
