Re: Self esteem post,......Wow.

I was never really made fun of about my arm, but one noticeable thing has happened a few times. After explaining what Erb's Palsy is to some people, if it came up in conversation later, some people get confused and ask me about my Cerebral Palsy. It's a bit awkward.

Re: Pain in elbow?

glad I could help.

a plush nemo makes a great cushion and is very transportable :) and the fish shape is a perfect size for the arm. I use it at my desk, on the couch and I especially like taking it along for flights, the arm rests are never comfortable for my arm, but nemo saves the day, hahaha.

Re: Reflexes?

I think I have better reflexes in my non-injured arm from things like getting a huge jar of all-purpose flour from a high shelf with one hand to things like catching stuff that falls (that you mentioned). It might also be that you are putting all of your focus into doing something with one arm rathe...
