I wanted to give people a heads-up that I probably won’t be doing a lot of writing today, though it would be noticeable anyway. Yesterday afternoon, my left hand stopped working. There’s no reason for it, but I can’t close my hand or get my fingers to work. I’m right-handed, but use both hands to type. I’m typing this post with one finger on my right hand.
It never fails to amaze me, how much I normally use my left hand, without thought. I won’t even be able to run the computers at church today because I need both hands. I’ve strained my left wrist in the past, so this isn’t the first time I’ve been forced to do things one-handed, but this is a little different. There is no pain or numbness, the hand simply refuses to work and I don’t know why.
Ella was afraid that I was having a heart attack, but again, no pain or numbness. That would seem to rule out a stroke, too, especially since only my hand is effected.
I don’t do doctors and haven’t been to one for about 36 years, for reasons I won’t go in to now, but if this doesn’t get better, I may end up doing so.
Anyway, if you don’t see me around much today this is why.
Have you ever had to use just one hand for typing and everthing else?
