A minor mishap at work yesterday resulted in my right hand ring finger being bent a little back and a lot sideways.
It isn't broken, not even swollen, just was very painful and awkward to use.
I gritted my teeth trying not to swear in front of the customer while gripping my hand for a moment, then as it eased a bit I continued with packing her groceries.
When I got home I taped the two middle fingers together to minimise movement, then at bedtime I massaged some deep heat into the joints then covered the hand with a glove in case I touched my face while sleeping.
Today it's still painful and awkward but I can work so that's okay.
What gets me though, is that every injury I've ever had has been to my right side.
Whether it's hand, foot, back, whatever.
Always my right side.
