On having a broken wrist - lessons learnt

Things I cannot do one-handed
- iron (what a shame!)
- unscrew things
- open wine
- cut or chop food

Things I am learning to do one-handed
- Type (slowly and frustratingly)
- shower
- blowdry my hair
- change the bed linen
- dress myself

Other things I have learnt
- My lovely hubbie is a star (I knew that already...)
- I have to slow down and conserve my energy
- I'm a bit stubborn and proud, I don't like asking for, or accepting, help
- If I try to type with my left hand, the wrist WILL hurt :-(
