My Photo


  • a happy, ordinary, middle-aged, suburban woman who paints odd pictures, gardens in a straw hat, lives with the love of her life, is owned by one cat and the ghosts of several others, and walks a little funny 'cause she has a fake leg. She started this website because there's more to life than what we lose, and we need to let each other know what's possible, even if it's only a happy, ordinary life.

Thus I learned to -- forgive me for this -- think outside the socks.

Oh, ouch.

Very informative blog! I have always had trouble putting on my pair of women's pants ever since I got my prosthetic leg. I will have to follow your advice on how to carefully slip into my pants with ease. I always look on the bright side if I ever get upset about my situation and then I think 'I only have to shave one leg'.

I have worn a ak prostheses for about 45 years now ... the first one cost $250 the last one $40000 ... but they're basically all the same thing ... a pain to wear ... as a male I don't have the pantyhose thing to go through ... and I wear two socks every day ... I just put the dirty one (regular foot) on the artificial foot and vice versa ... thus 1 pair every other day ... cosmetic effect plus I find the artificial foot tends to squeak in a shoe without a sock ... I was googling trying to see what was new in the field of prosthetics and ran across your blog ... good luck .... dmw
