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.
From there they go down to my ankles where I can attach any number of shoes I like to wear.
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.
Most of the reasons I have been given for not dating paraplegic girls are based on false beliefs.
I work in a big wheelchair friendly office building where I have to go from room to room a lot.
I always feel like my disability is just hanging out there.
