Not For The Usual ReasonI hate them because they have always been a problem for me. At the age of 6, I was diagnosed with Leg-Hip Perthes disease of the right hip. Enter trips to Pittsburgh Childrens Hospital every third month, braces, crutches when brace needed adjusted for growth, learning to walk a total of 4 different times before I was 10 years old. Then I was diagnosed with Osgood Slaughters disease of the left knee. At the ripe old age of 43, I had a total hip replacement of my right hip. I have completely screwed up the ligaments of my left knee after a fall in April of 2010. Not to mention, I have lost 155 lbs. so the skin just hangs. So, yeah, I hate my legs, but thank God I can still use them. Some days easier and with less pain than other days, but, thank God anyway. I would rather walk in pain, than sit 24/7 without it.
THANK YOU GOD, one more time!!!
