This tread really hits a nerve with me...

I got really jacked up commuting to work in march, docs put me in a coma for a month, most of which I had tubes down my throat in the ICU.

I remember waking up and being unable to tear toilet paper with my one arm.
....But that was the least of the challenges I faced...

Fast forward just over 7 months:
My left arm is way stronger, surely more then its atrophied self 5/6 months ago!
Left hand is still operating like a pair of pliars, and just as clumsy!
Right arm is still montionless, it hurts like hell! and does me zero good.

I've spent most of my time working bon my websites... the latest and yet to launch...
www.LivingWithOneArm.com

going to be a simple blog, mostly a wiki for those living with 1 arm, all the tips/tricks I've been forced to figure out.... like the triple dose of belt conditioner and thread lock for my suicide knob.... makes driving the cage.... better
or my wire strippers to turn on the shower :|
