Trust issues with my left hand

Leftie doesn't think rightie is trying hard enough.
I hear him complain in my head (often),

"if it it were me, i'd be doing all i could to pull my weight around here. you can't even hit that huge, hard to miss, shift key when necessary! Aurrrgh!"

BUT poor out-of-commission rightie is having a tough time - unable to do the simplest things and hurting when he tries too hard. (why oh why are my limbs taking on a masculine identity??)

The toughest decision? When to go back to work? I'd like to wait until it doesn't hurt to use my right hand on a limited basis, but I'm feeling guilty leaving L with talkative, lively short people while needing to give my sub a lot of support. The alternative wouldn't be much of a favor to her either!

That's always a tough decision when you know you're leaving someone else in the lurch, but you do need to take care of yourself. You don't want permanent damage! :)

You're right - i am fond of this right hand and 99% of what it does for me. :>)

Take care of yourself as long as you need to. I think L would say the same to you and so would the rest of the staff!!
