My right leg just stopped growing when I was about 13 and my left leg continued to grow until I was about 17.
From there they go down to my ankles where I can attach any number of shoes I like to wear.
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.
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.
So I mostly use both wheelchair and leg braces together.
