    I wore leg braces from the time I was 5

    until I was 14, when I threw them out when my parents were at work, they were quite angry with me! This was in the 60s and early 70s. I was the only student in my school who wore them for most of my childhood. I still have flashbacks when I see pictures of leg braces...
