    When I first got my ering, it hurt my fingers, on either side of my ring finger. It's a fairly thick band, so it would make little sores on my other fingers. I have gotten used to it though, and now I have three rings (2 wedding bands) to get used to. Sometimes they still bother me, so I wear my ering on my rihgt hand and the wedding bands on the left.

    Oh and I also take my rings off almost as soon as I get in the house after work every night and I only put them on before I leave the house. I also don't wear them in the shower, cuz that is when I let them soak to get clean.

      Hmm, I never sleep with any jewelry on, this includes my e-ring...my mom raised me that way, she always told me never to sleep with it on, so I don't lol. I also don't do dishes, shower, or do yardwork with my e-ring on as I am scared of wrecking it or losing it...other than that, it is almost always on.

      I know my FI thinks he won't be able to get used to the feeling of a ring on his finger after the wedding, so if it drives him nuts, we agreed that he could wear it on his chain...but still, I'd prefer it on his finger. Oh well.

        its definately been hard for me to get used to my ering; still in the process! I cant sleep with it on either and there are days that i forget to put it on in the morning... Those days I do feel naked.

          Even if I get used to it, I still don't plan to wear it to work - I also work in a hospital (and a clinic also) and wash my hands at least 50 times per day - and I'm constantly putting on gloves so it'll get in the way.. also, I'd have to take it off for sterile procedures - so then I worry about losing it.. although I know other doctors and nurses wear erings to work.. I think I'll wear my wedding band to work once I'm married, but I like my ering too much..
          (not to mention it's still so uncomfortable for me to wear :) )

          I'm glad I'm not alone in this though :)
