Left handed means immunity disorders? I can vote for that statement so can my mom. Were not only the only leftys in the family but also the only ones with immunity disorders.

I've always said I'm left handed since I write and hold the spoon with my left hand, but recently I've started to think that I might be both handed since I kick a ball, punch, use scissors with my right hand… I always told people I'm left handed because I thought what hand you write with determines it lmao
