Weird al dating
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.
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.
That means I put both forearm crutches out in front of me and swing both legs through the middle.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.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.
