But now live in the states.

Hence your username no doubt :wacko::huh::laugh:

Well you got me bang to rights there!

I was in France a few years ago, I guess I should change my name to BritinDetroit, or to cover my next move "Britaroundtheworld" :laugh:

Hello everybody, I finally joined this site -it really is great! I live in London, was born in Glasgow Scotland and married a 'Cockney Geezer' almost 40 years ago. I hope to chat to lot's of people on here and get and hopepfully give, support and tips to make life easier. I have one question already! - I am going on holiday this year and wondered how a left bka gets out of the swimming pool? I can launch myself in to the pool but getting out can be a problem - any ideas? Maybe this part of the thread should go to a different site? but any quick answers would help.

I now feel part of a very exclusive club!

Hi and welcome :) I am an RBK for 12 years and the best way I have found is to go to the ladder at the side, grab with both hands up high, put good leg on bottom step, pull up and then push my stump onto the next step (just below the knee where the bar in the socket pushes onto the edge of the step) and use that to move the good leg up higher. Works well for me anyway.

Thanks very much! - I need all the help I can get on this swimming issue - I don't intend sitting on the sidelines watching others splash about when I am on holiday so every tip is worth having a go at.

I live in Ukraine. I am in love with your country . I fell in love when watched the film "Pride and Prejudice" is a novel by Jane Austen , Since I dream to visit your unusually beautiful country , see the sights and nature. But unfortunately I can't make a prosthesis that I could travel freely by the state , and for private money is too expensive for me. But I hope that this will change. and I will definitely come to the UK
