Please don't send me email to ask if I know where you can find a left-handed shoehorn or a left-handed hairbrush or anything else. I am not keeping any secrets. If I know about it, it's already on this page. For products not listed here, or for local stores, try Google.

Note: You may not need a left-handed mouse or trackball. If you are using Windows, you can simply change your mouse settings, usually through the Control Panel. If you still use a DOS system, check your mouse or trackball manual. Most have command line parameters that let you set them for left-handed use. Most Mac computers support left-handed use with no special effort.
