40. Well, it's only the right hand, but that's the one that I use.
Edited on Sun Nov-23-08 10:08 PM by Rhiannon12866
I'm a one handed typist. Several years ago I fell in the winter and broke my arm, but it was the left one. I was told that I could be out of work for six weeks which made my boss turn pale, since there were only two of us in my department. But I didn't take any time off at all, since I use my right hand to type, never learned the proper way, but I got pretty fast after more than 15 years and I rarely make typos... :D

But the Advil's a good idea. The doctor gave me meds, but I'm running low. They also recommended plastic surgery, but I'm putting that off. It still hurts enough that I am just not up to facing another doctor. I've also driven short distances, impossible when I had a "splint" that ran from my fingers to my elbow, but it gets old really fast, asking for rides, even when people offer. I still use my left hand for everything but steering, but haven't hit anything yet... ;)

And thank you for the compliment, my friend. I'm at a low point in my life and have missed DU both for the news and the camaraderie. I especially missed DU and the company I was used to during this historic election. We've waited for this for so long... :-(

BTW, I noticed that you changed your avatar. A good choice, IMHO. Check out my sig quote, the one I've had since I first joined DU... :D

Congrats again and have a good week. The heat suddenly decided to go out in my car, terrible timing, so I need to find another garage or somebody who knows something. I feel like Roseanne Roseannadanna... :-(

Rhiannon :hi:

on edit: If you could use a good laugh... :rofl:
