Drawing things back to front....

I recently discovered (I am 38) that I draw everything back to front! I was doing the Brain Training on Nintendo DS and I had to draw Italy, and drew it back to front. I.E., the 'boot' was facing the wrong way.

This has come as a massive shock to me!

I also noticed that I drew other things back to front compared to other people. I may well be left handed, as my father believes my mother forced me to use my right hand to write when I was younger. My handwriting is awful, and I play football (soccer) left footed, and play Pool and Snooker left handed, so the evidence would point to me being left handed.

Anyway, I would like to know where I should be looking to enable me to discover if I was born left handed, and if so; how I can get back to what I should be doing naturally, and become left handed again.

I'd also like to know what the psychological implications have been for me, and what they are if I do become left handed.

PS - Thanks to Rosemary for her help in getting me to here!
