    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...

    Yes, I Wore Leg Braces

    Yup, I'm Forest Gump :)

    I'm not sure about the details, but apparently I was having quite a lot of difficulty walking as a child (probably all that extra fat ;)) and so I had to wear braces on my legs for about 2 years.  Even now sometimes I feel my feet not quite agree with my walking pattern...
