I moused righthanded until my shoulder went out on me.  I had to learn to 
mouse lefthanded (even though I am lefthanded -- it's amazing how many 
things I didn't realize I did righthanded till my shoulder went out on me). 
Now, several years post-surgery, while I can mouse righthanded if I 
absolutely have to, it's much more difficult for me now.  Not sure why that
