I always feel like my disability is just hanging out there.Like, I know men new to dating paraplegic girls, want to ask me about my disability. We made a meeting place and parted ways for the afternoon.
When I use my wheelchair I don’t need a pair of shoes with a build-up. The footrests on my chair are in the middle and close together.
The right footrest plate is just a little higher to make up the difference in my leg length.
This is the story of how I met Jeff and our first date together. Jeff doesn’t seem to mind dating paraplegic girls or that I’m handicapped. I still can’t believe, if I wasn’t running late for work that day, we may have never met.
Being in a rush, I decided to go in my wheelchair, without the leg braces I usually wear.
I have all kinds of shoes from athletic shoes to sandals for the summer.
My favorites though are the high heels I wear at work. My right leg is also a little shorter than my left one, another part of my disability.I am a paraplegic, paralyzed from just above my waist down to my feet.I have been a paraplegic since I was a little girl. My legs are very thin and flaccid, but I still think of myself as attractive, even sexy.I looked too and could see the pink polish on my toenails through my tan pantyhose. This man had to see me pick my leg up with my hands and get my foot back on the footrest of the wheelchair. Sometimes, when I know I have an audience, I put on a little show. I thanked him and pulled my leg up by lifting under one knee. I hooked my toes with the shoe and pulled it onto the heel of my foot. We both made our apologies and started talking about where we were going, what our jobs were, who we knew and things like that. Jeff asked me if would like to watch the game that night with him at a bar a few blocks from the office. I would love to go on a date with this handsome, polite man. I’m also very cautious of guys only interested in dating paraplegic girls.Now most everyone has seen my legs of course, but I realized at that moment no one at work has ever seen my bare feet. Being in a wheelchair we are a bit more vulnerable.I was on the way to the file room when I took a corner too fast and actually ran into this very handsome man in a suit. Not so much because I ran into him, but when I did, my right foot actually came off the footrest, knocking my shoe off.
