I Pretended To Be An Amputee

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 77 People

    Pretending is how I cope with BIID.

    Ever since I was about eleven, I have tucked my legs fully inside my pants and walk on my knees when I am home by myself. Recently I have begun to tuck my left my arm into my shirt as well. Any ideas on other ways to pretend?
