    I learned to mouse with my left hand (I'm right-handed) when I had a wrist injury, and now I can mouse with either one. Perhaps you can learn this new skill, too. It took me about 2-3 weeks to get comfortable with it. I hope you heal up soon.

    Yeah, I'm getting better with the mouse. The 1-handed hunt-and-peck typing is the tough part.

    I had that problem, too. I decided to not fight it and to take it as a sign from the Universe to Just. Slow. Down.

    I'm not doing photo cards this year (can't really use Photoshop) or typing a letter. DH has letter duty. He's going to learn what a PITA it is to stuff all those envelopes!

    Sorry zoom-zoom! I have a sensitive wrist from a hard fall I took onto slick/wet tile in my teens. It still bothers me from time to time, so doing endless planks and some of the other poses in yoga occasionally bother it. I hope you won't have residual problems once it heals up. But at least you get out of holiday letter duty -- SILVER LINING!

    Condolences!! Follow Docs orders about rehab and PT so it returns to full power when you get to that point!

    Ohhh! heal quickly !!

    I know exactly how you feel as I've broken both wrists on the bike. The last one the Dr actually formed my cast so that I could somewhat grab the handlebar and ride the trainer. So I was at least thankful for that.

    I agree with Artista that it might be a bit before you are actually able to run... might be too much pounding for just a bit.

    At any rate, heal quickly!!

    Thank you -- my friend is 3 months out from a broken wrist and running impact hurts a bit, still. I think elliptical and stationary riding will be my best options.
