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.
About a year ago I started wearing long leg braces and using crutches to maneuver around the building.
It’s much easier than getting a wheelchair through crowded hallways and elevators.
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.
My right leg just stopped growing when I was about 13 and my left leg continued to grow until I was about 17.
It’s really not that much difference, but to make up for it most of my shoes have a built-up sole on the right side, and are one size smaller since that foot is smaller.
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.
Getting around in my leg braces on crutches is slow and I’ve fallen many times.
My wheelchair is safer and faster but I cannot stand up to reach things without the leg braces.
Most men say I’m attractive but are not interested in dating paraplegic girls or dating wheelchair girls in general.
