With a broken arm there is a great temptation to...
1. not do things you are still capable of doing because you have an excuse.
2. use either too much or too little pain medication.
3. believe your sling/cast weighs more than it really does when you step on the scale.
4. gut it out and not accept help.
5. sleep all day.
6. lower the typing standards because you have to hunt and peck.
