Since I don’t have any control of my waist or legs my shorter right leg kind of swings first and my left drags the floor just a little as it swings through. I am used to people staring at my legs as I am almost always in a skirt or dress. Now I even like to show the leg braces off a little.
Sometimes my skirts barely cover the thigh straps on the tops of my braces.
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.
But if I start offering information about my disability, or ask them about dating paraplegic girls, they seem to get uncomfortable. I am having a very hard time of going from one end of the desirable scale to the other virtually overnight.
I work in a big wheelchair friendly office building where I have to go from room to room a lot.When I use my wheelchair I don’t need a pair of shoes with a build-up. The footrests on my chair are in the middle and close together.The right footrest plate is just a little higher to make up the difference in my leg length.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.
