Because I don't cover my leg support, I've got used to strange looks from passersby. It is an unfortunate genetic condition that I can do nothing about.
I won't hide my support and I'm sorry if it offends people but it is part of my life, and I'm not ashamed of the support.
Until today, nobody had physically shunned me. Today at a zebra crossing a lady moved away from me, as if she thought she could contract my disability.
