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.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.
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 have all kinds of shoes from athletic shoes to sandals for the summer.My favorites though are the high heels I wear at work. My right leg is also a little shorter than my left one, another part of my disability.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.
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.
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.
Most men say I’m attractive but are not interested in dating paraplegic girls or dating wheelchair girls in general.
