I've heard of people being made to use their right hand when they're left-handed, but that was mostly from older people who had that done to them in school a while back. I've never heard of the suggestion that 30% (let alone 50%) of people are left-handed and have in one way or another trained themselves to use their right hand.

I don't doubt that using your non-dominant hand can cause problems for people, but I don't think anyone should self-diagnose themselves based on the criteria provided. I hate to see someone convince themselves that some or all of their problems can be solved/blamed on which hand they use when there are plenty of other possible explanations.

I'm also skeptical about the claim that there are no ambidextrous people. I've seen people who seemingly write, etc. just as well with either hand, though they tend to stick to one hand for certain tasks.
