I guess I'm an underwriter - my hand holding the pen is a mirror image of 99% of right handed folks. The slant of my writing and how I hold the pen is so "normal" looking that people who have know me for a long time will suddenly exclaim - I didn't know you were left handed!! It might be because when I was in 2nd grade, the elderly woman teacher made me sit all the way in the back and over against the windows because I was the only lefty in the class. She refused to help me learn how to write cursive with everyone else, so to this day I struggle with several capitals, and often have numerous "styles" in my writing, when I'm not doing calligraphy. I often print/cursive combined, all because of that 2nd grade teacher and her aversion to working with left handed students.
Breathe. Take one step at a time. Don't sweat the small stuff. You're not getting older, you are only moving through time. Be calm and positive.
