For those of you with difficulty switching mousing hands, I recommend that
you buy a new type of pointing device (trackball, touchpad, etc.) and learn
to use that with your other hand. I am left-handed but can only mouse with
my right hand. When I got a touchpad, I made sure to learn to use it with my
left hand.

Like me, you may find it easier to learn a new skill with the other hand,
than to re-learn an existing skill with the other hand.
