I was born without both legs, now i'm 54 and feel like I'm going crazy. I've had the same feelings you describe in your blog, like, somehow, I don't deserve, or not smart enough to do the job, park in the handicap parking space...ect. I'm self-medicating myself into an early grave and somehow I saw the post and loved what was said.

    Welcome to the community, hope you find something helpful. Do you have some good prosthetic legs? Or is ithis not possible? I've never met someone that was born without legs. how rare is it?

    All the very best, thanks for joining the forum I look forward to reading your posts, I'm sure your experience gives you a unique prospective on things.
