  • Signing my signature
  • Using the restroom
  • Shaving
  • Putting on my watch
  • Feeding myself in general
  • Texting
  • Typing
  • Using a mouse
  • Photoshopping
  • Shaving my head
  • Playing Poker (Although I did win this week playing left handed)
  • Adding contacts to my phone
  • Making peanut butter & jelly sandwiches
  • Counting change
  • Turning on the ignition in a car
  • Driving (Good thing I don’t drive a stick shift)
  • Turning on the windshield wipers while driving
  • Taking pictures
  • Using the remote control
  • Opening a pill bottle (although I am getting better)

  1. I know what it’s like to have an injured hand. I broke my right wrist several years ago and was in a cast for 6 weeks. I’m right handed so everything was difficult. You should have seen me trying to blow dry and then flat iron my hair! After the second week, my orthopedic surgeon fitted me with a new cast that gave me more movement with my fingers so I was able to hold a pen and type a little. I think I’m a bit more ambidextrous now then I was before the broken wrist! Wishing you a speedy recovery!
