The indignity of a wrist brace

My wrists have hurt ever since I helped the Sons shovel ice & snow off the driveway the other day. Finally decided to try bracing them, to see if it made a difference. Since I have 4 sons, I also have medical equipment for a variety of uses. I found a brace that fits my right wrist, and have been wearing it. It does help, but only because I'm willing to ignore the comments from the peanut gallery.

Son #1: "Your arm still hurts? Really? Wow."

Son #3: "You're not old. You're just not young. VERY not young."

Tsk. Oh for Pete's sake. Let them do it alone next time and see who's "old." hahaha I used to shovel a lot of snow when I was a kid, it's not fun, no matter what age you are. If you hold the shovel the wrong way, you're bound to hurt somewhere no matter what age you are.
