About Me/This Blog

Teri Davis

Once upon a time, cooking was an ordinary activity for me.  I could throw together a meal in a few minutes from recipes in my head… from 50+ years of experience… until I had a surprise.  Unexpectedly, the right side of my body started shutting down one day.  First, I couldn’t walk, then I couldn’t sign my name, and soon I couldn’t do anything with my right hand.  I had had a stroke.

I am naturally right-handed, but a stroke took that away from me.  Since my left hand was not affected, it has become my dominant hand and in many ways, my only hand.  For a long time, every action required thinking and planning in advance. Through physical therapy and effort, many skills gradually returned, but many seem to be gone for good.  I have learned alternate ways of doing things and I want to share what I have learned. I hope you find helpful information in this blog.
