I was violently attacked about four months ago, and to keep a long and painful story short, I was stabbed repeatedly. My doctors and I have been working really hard, but nothing is working. Yesterday, he told me that amputation is very likely in my near future, and that I should prepare. I don't know anything about any of this. I'm scared. I am a ballerina. I *need* my legs. I don't mean to sound like a baby, or to sound ignorant, but ballet is my life. I just need information...I think that the better informed I am, the less scared I will be. I have been told that if circulation doesn't improve soon that most of my right leg will be useless. Also, the wounds aren't healing, and I have lost all feeling in my lower leg. I'm sorry for not knowing the terms...but this is me reaching out. Please, someone, help me to come to terms. Help me not be so scared about losing my leg. I was told to prepare...how do you prepare? Again, please, I need help here.

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
