    I wore leg braces sence I could walk.

    See um I was born the wrong way so now I can't do every thing on my legs. But I can still walk. Also I need a special ad for school every where.

    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...
