My right leg just stopped growing when I was about 13 and my left leg continued to grow until I was about 17.
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.
About a year ago I started wearing long leg braces and using crutches to maneuver around the building.
It’s much easier than getting a wheelchair through crowded hallways and elevators.
The braces start at the tops of my thighs and go down to knee locks so I can bend my legs if I’m sitting.
From there they go down to my ankles where I can attach any number of shoes I like to wear.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.This is the story of how I met Jeff and our first date together. Jeff doesn’t seem to mind dating paraplegic girls or that I’m handicapped. I still can’t believe, if I wasn’t running late for work that day, we may have never met.Being in a rush, I decided to go in my wheelchair, without the leg braces I usually wear.I am a paraplegic, paralyzed from just above my waist down to my feet.
