I have read where some of us have our legs fall off, especially when it would seem the least fortunate time. I have dealt with this for years with my suction socket. I used to get all annoyed, and irritated. Now, I laugh. Strangers will see me, with my leg all twisted around, my smile, and they realize it is under control, most ask if I need help, normally I do not, and we all have a nice chuckle over the idiosyncrasies of being an amputee. I guess what I am trying to say is, the better attitude you have in dealing with it, the easier it is to deal with. It is not your fault. This is what just it is. The fact that other "Normies" get all concerned about my foot pointing the wrong way is funny, really!! Just imagine your suddenly screaming and saying OH MY GOD!!!! You could scare the shit out of them. Try it on your friends. They forget you are handicapped, and every once in a while God gives you this wonderful little prank to pull on them. Keep smiling. It really works. How about you folks, got any funny stories????

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...
