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 of the reasons I have been given for not dating paraplegic girls are based on false beliefs.
From there they go down to my ankles where I can attach any number of shoes I like to wear.
But that day I was just in my wheelchair wearing a little skirt just above my knees.
The blouse was a little on the tight side with pantyhose and my two inch platform style heels.
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.
My right leg just stopped growing when I was about 13 and my left leg continued to grow until I was about 17.
