I've been right handed for over 70 years. I'm really good at doing things right handed, such as writing, lifting, cooking, housework, typing, holding a book, etc. However, an operation on Jan. 4 forced me to be left handed, at which I am not very good.
First of all, a brace with a hard "pillow" that holds my right arm in place prevents me from doing many of the tasks I used to handle with ease-like eating, fixing my hair, holding a newspaper or a book. It forces me to sleep with my hand in the air perpetually signaling my readiness to answer any questions I dream about.
