[quote:Geo777:MV8yMDQ0MzQ1XzM0MzUxMDI4Xzc1NjZDNUJG] Get a folding bag/trolley with wheels to move things around so you don't have to try to carry them - I have one and it's really helpful. You could also just get a long handled sling type woven bag to throw across your shoulder to carry things around the house and still have your free hand - I always have things to carry to the car, to the other room - need one hand free for door knobs, keys, light switches - or something sort of like a messenger bag, but without the big flap getting in the way.

So, I was herding some squabbling cats apart, slipped on my hardwood floor and landed hard enough to break my arm a couple of days ago. Fortunately, it is not my dominant arm.
I have found tons of sites talking about the care of the cast, care of the break, itch and pain management- but few tips on doing day to day things.
I'm sure over tiime I will adapt to it but I thought perhaps some of you would have things you figured out during a similar injury that you might share.
Thank you in advance!
