    Stress and Phantom Pain

    i never suffer with phantom pain, but yesterday, whilst i was rather stressed out (still am) i had it painful I couldnt sleep last nite, i think i had about 5 hours in total. I was supposed 2 be gettin my legs yesterday.. well what i thoguht and obviously my prosthetist didnt have that in mind.. so ive had 2 come away with no new legs, meanin that i have 2 wear my old legs for a further 2 weeks. these legs cause me pain. so that just means bad moods for yet another 2 weeks. As i am not gettin my legs until then I will only have 2 weeks to test them, cos then it will sort of be... if they dont fit tuff luck cos nothing will be able 2 be done about them cos i will be away.

    email addresses

    Hi all one of the options on here is to share your email address/ msn addres or what ever. So being trusting and wanting to get in contact with people I displayed mine, as i find I hjave met a few ppl on here. and most of them genuine. But more recently I have had 2 ppl add me, who are not amputees, and I find this rather wierd. One guy just added me and I asked was he an amp... blah blah blah and he sed, no BUT he wonders what it is like to be an amputee. He likes to check in to see what is going on. Am I silly 4 displayin my email address? Can we not trust ppl, even in our own little "community" Hmmmm Andrea

    Organ donation

    I know this doesnt have much to do with this forum but I am just wondering, do any of you carry donor cards? Are any of you on the donor list? Ive signed up to the donor list, as I know what a difference an organ can make to some bodies life. It has turned my life around!! You can donate, Kidneys, heart, liver, lungs, pancreas, small bowel, corneas, heart valves and bone can all be transplanted. Skin can be used to treat patients with severe burns. As a kidney patient who in the future will probably need another transplant , I'm all for Organ donation and Signing up.

    Slushy gurl hhas a questtion to evveryonmes..

    Both my legs are sore:( It really hurts to wear my legs, let alone walk on them and drive to school. I suppose if it still hurting in hte morning i will just bear the pain, jst so i can get my coursework in. Ive got a cut on the one, which i've been dressing, but just to wlak on it really hurts. Ive also got a swelling at the end of teh same stump, that is about the size of a tennis ball. If you cut a tennis ball in half... well thats the size of the end of my stump. the other leg isnt too bad... May have to results to my cruthches me thinks...... Love andrea
