I’ve become used to wearing pantyhose too which I never used to do.Without the pantyhose, the pads on the braces rub my legs too much.I’ve learned to use my leg braces pretty well and walk with a swing through gait.That means I put both forearm crutches out in front of me and swing both legs through the middle.The braces start at the tops of my thighs and go down to knee locks so I can bend my legs if I’m sitting.From there they go down to my ankles where I can attach any number of shoes I like to wear.My right leg just stopped growing when I was about 13 and my left leg continued to grow until I was about 17.
My ego is shot to bits as I am constantly passed over.
I am a paraplegic, paralyzed from just above my waist down to my feet.
I have been a paraplegic since I was a little girl. My legs are very thin and flaccid, but I still think of myself as attractive, even sexy.
I was on the way to the file room when I took a corner too fast and actually ran into this very handsome man in a suit. Not so much because I ran into him, but when I did, my right foot actually came off the footrest, knocking my shoe off.
Not having any feeling in my legs or feet I didn’t know my shoe was off until I noticed the man kept looking down. They like to see how a handicapped girl moves her legs with her hands getting out of a car, and things like that. After the man noticed my red face, he quickly looked away, fumbling around reaching for my shoe. He looked so cute now blushing just as much as I was.
I have all kinds of shoes from athletic shoes to sandals for the summer.
