Long Day = Sore Morning

I probably should not have worked a 12 hour day on my second day back to work.  I didn't use my arm much, other than to type and write, but man, it hurt at the end of the night.  It's still sore after a night's sleep. 

I'm not supposed to use my right arm at all.  I was told to not hold anything in it heavier than a fork.  That doesn't make much sense to me though.  I can hold a fork, but can't get the damn thing to my mouth because of the brace.  That said, I'm still eating left handed.

That brings up another thought.  I challenge you.  Yes, a challenge.  If you are right handed, I challenge you to do things left handed today.  If you're left handed, then do it the other way around.  You will notice how much of a pain in the ass it is (literally).  Try brushing your teeth with the other hand.  How do your gums feel after doing that.  Get dressed one handed. Pull up your pants and zip your zipper with the other hand.  Put deodorant on your left armpit using your left hand.  I tried using aerosol and wound up spraying it in my eyes.  Open a jar of mayo or peanut butter.  You get the point.

So that's my challenge for the day readers.  Are you up for it?  It seriously will be a pain in the ass, especially when you wipe.  Now, that's an adventure.

  1. I am up for it! I do many things left handed anyways so this isn't much of a challenge haha

    On a more serious note though, sorry your arm is still in so much pain!

  2. Haha, already broke my arm twice in the last 2 years, so i know how it is to have to do everything one-handedly...
    Even made my whole folder fall on the floor at school, papers everywhere!
    Doctors are always extra careful, don't hesitate to overdo what they tell you just a little bit, stop when it hurts too much, you'll get better faster.

  8. I've tried that before, doing tasks with the opposite hand than I'm used to, it's crazy how uncoordinated it is. I was on the phone with one hand so tried to brush my teeth with the other and ended up gagging myself... oops.
