    I was reading a medical article which stated that left- handed people seemed to have more medical (and mental) problems than right-handed people. It peaked my curiosity, so I thought I would ask everybody here who wanted to respond, are you left-handed or right-handed? As you can probably guess, I am left-handed. Please respond so we can see if there's a corelation!

    I'm left-handed. Though I kick with my right foot.

    However, when I was born, there was a delay in handedness, and an "inability to cross midline" - when asked to draw a line, I would draw the left half with the left hand, the right half with the other. Supposedly, due to the delay, some teachers wanted to teach to me to be right-handed, but my parents being the modern folk they are, decided to let me choose.

    According to wikipedia, this is one of a few different ways that people can become left-handed. Would be curious about others' background.

    right handed. I remember back in 4th & 5th grade writing left handed--and it was very readable.

    I've been strictly left-handed since I came out of the womb; have CFS, FMS, IBS, Asthma and many allergies, had a brain tumor...sounds like I'm the living proof of the theory, sad to say.

    I'm a lefty, from down under - New Zealand.

    Interstingly, at Architecture School (my hubby was an architect) there was a definite leaning to lefties. I know a few talented architects that can draw on the computer with left hand and type/mouse control with right. lefties are supposed to understand spatial awareness more easily. I certainly have no problem. Some clients are absolutely hopeless - not that I see them anymore.

    Intersting topic. I've read simialer report a few yrs back.

    I'm ambidextrous, actually, but I do write with my left hand.

    I doubt fm is related to left-handed-ness though :].

    I have right left hand confusion. I have to think before I can tell the difference.

    I do most things with my right hand but also use my left hand.

    I use my wedding ring to tell which hand is which, I sometimes get mixed when driving. Denamay
