At some point this year I’m due to lose the use of my right hand for about two months when I have my operation again. At the end of that time hopefully I’ll be able to use it but it depends if it is successful. After all I’ve been through it’s hard to let myself imagine that will be the case but I’ll go for it.
I’m really busy with work now and it occurred to me, a few days ago, that I’m not going to be able to use my mouse with my right hand during the time following the op. This’s actually quite a problem and something I need to plan for.
I’ve decided to train myself to use my mouse with my left hand which I tried today. It feels really strange and confusing but based on what I’ve read and my experience from last year, it is possible to do it over several months. It makes sense and will be useful anyway. Perhaps I will become ambidextrous (which can’t be a bad thing).
