Crippled Curiosity: Live Life Loud

A personal blog dealing with what it is like living with a disability and being an amputee

169 notes

I love at work when I use crutches and regulars come in who have never seen me without my prosthetic and they do a double take, sometimes triple takes. The look of shock and confusion is hilarious. The funniest reaction from a regular was this:

Regular:
Holy Shit are you okay?
Me:
Yea I'm perfectly fine!
Regular:
You sure? They have you back working already?
Me:
I'm not sure what you mean.
Regular:
I was here week and a half ago and you had both legs, so you don't you need time to heal and cope and adjust and everything?
Me:
Oh! No, I lost leg when I was 13. I'm fine!
Regular:
But you had both legs a week and a half ago.
Me:
I had my prosthetic leg on a week and a half ago.
Regular:
So you were missing you leg a week and a half ago when I was last in here?
Me:
Yes and every other time you came in. Just usually wear my prosthetic.
Regular:
Well you gotta warn people. It's not nice to make them think you have all your limbs.
