    hi don't know if im being a crybaby, but i had a sort of a bad week . within the next month they are going to measure and the i wil get fitted with legs. so, you would say that is a good thing. but i'm so scared that it will not work. i had pain this week in the stumps i looked in the mirror at myself and i cryed, i don't know if anyone has that to, but how long does it take to be happy with the way you became? i thought i was ok with it, i'm not sure now. the doctor said the shape of the stumps were nice and good and all i was thinking was, "shut up the, the size and shape of my legs and arm was good!!, i hate this socalled stumps!" hope you don't mind this story, but it gives some reliev to typ it down xx sarah

    girly wales, what you have done is sooo cool. i sure hope to do that one day first the next thing i want to do is swimming again. i saw that you are also bilateral amp, do you have those special legs for running? long way for me still, but it is good to read these things, you are all my lighthouses (weird sentence) and who said that punks don't do sports!? :D sarah

    at the moment i still use my wheelchair i hope to get fitting for prosthetics within two months when the last skingrafts are done. i don't know if i can use crutches, because of my "hands" are there people who also have amputations of fingers or hands, who can tell me if there is a way to use crutches or is it not necessary at all?

    hi people!

    never thought that so many people were here, feels great to be (missing) part of the gang. ;) and i saw that afet, mike and sanicki had the same way to go as i did. this board really is great! and beside the old people (i want to use all the experience so that is a compliment) here also youngsters, after al what happened i had the feeling of being the only one with it. be prepared to recieve mail from me and if you want to know any good punk music feel free to contact me B)

    hi people!

    thanks for all the positive reactions don't you worry i will drop in from time to time for the much needed advice. for now as an answer to some questions: social distortion is great!! and i had a mohawk on my head, but with my hands like this it is not easy doing it for myself. i already found my sisters and friends willing to help for a new one ;) i satified my mom long enough without :D (she doesn't mind really but i like to tease her) and for being so unashamedly young, that was not how i feel sunday morning after a night out
