    One Leg Pretending

    I use to just do it at home. Now, after realizing that I am not alone, I have begun pretending in public areas too. I fold and wrap up my right leg tightly so I look like a real amputee. Some people stare, most go about their business. I just feel like the "real" me doesn't need...
