    When I was about 10 years old I went through a glass door that was shut in my face on purpose and I didn't stop in time. Glass and blood everywhere as my left leg at my shin was sliced open and I could feel the cold going into my leg. I was in hospital for a few weeks and many...

    Three Times

    I was on crutches in grade school for several weeks with a severely sprained ankle, 8 weeks in high school when I broke my leg and once in college when I tore the ligaments in another ankle.  If nothing else it's a good way to build upper body strength.

    My Cp And Crutches

    I'm new to writing stories and not really sure if anyone will be interested. I was born with cerebral palsy, spastic diplegia. It took me longer than most kids, but eventually I learnt to walk. My problem is that I don't have proper control of my legs. When I'm standing still you...
