How do people get along with only one hand?
My left hand is really messed up right now (details here), and I’ve been encountering some of the problems that a one-handed person might:
Driving. Wow this can be difficult. Thank goodness I’ve got an automatic (a decision I had previously regretted when I bought my current car. Turn signals are pretty hard to initiate, parking lot maneuvers can be pretty tense. Sudden turns may be impossible. I’ve been wishing for a handle sticking out from the wheel that you could use one-handed to do multiple spins of the wheel.
Opening a wine bottle – give it up, there’s no way in hell. Similarly, other things that require a stationary grip + a hand that rotates, such as opening a jar of pickles. I can do it, but only by subjecting the bad hand to enormous pain.
OTOH, using a computer isn’t that bad, though typing is painfully slow with one hand.
