I am making progress, though I still have some difficulties with swelling and soft tissue damage.
with only my right hand I can:
brush my teeth
wash and dry my hair
do some laundry
fake my signature
use my cell phone
put on makeup
but I still have trouble:
managing my meals
cutting my nails
putting on my shoes
filling out forms
donning the shower sleeve thing
collecting produce at the market
holding/doing anything at all with my left fingers
I have yet to try:
polishing my toenails
being out in the world alone
I am going, next week I think, to get some post trauma support as while I don't think I have full-blown PTSD, I am having difficulty processing what happened to us and me.
Meanwhile, I continue to work till 2:00pm three days a week at my office and two days a week from home.
I haven't attempted polishing my toenails in a very long time and am very impressed that you are going to do it wrong handed. Kudos to you.
Bras must be impossible. I hope you have a helper or that you have found some comfy bralettes.
Until then, I applaud your ability to focus on the positive.
I think some post trauma support is a good idea. Sometimes a person needs a bit of help to process events outside of our normal lives. (This comes from someone who's wrecked a lot of cars!(and gave up driving))
I wish I was a poet and could offer you beautiful comforting words of advice, but I'm not. All I can say is take care of yourselves, and each other.
