Attention Fellow Amputees!!
Attention fellow amputees! (Traumatic, congenital, leg, arm, doesn’t matter, ALL AMPUTEES)
A lot of you know that I have a youtube channel called AmputeeLife where I talk about my life and experiences as an amputee.
I have a decent following now, and a lot of the following are amputees. I get asked a lot of questions from other amputees like, “How do you do xyz because its difficult for me” and I try to respond to all messages, but I get so many that it is difficult.
SO, I want to make a video called “Life Hacks for Amputees”. Here, I will give all of my little tips and tricks to make life easier.
Since I want to be as helpful as possible, I was wondering if any of you would life to contribute your own little life hacks and tips for me to use in my video.
I will give you credit, and mention either your name or your tumblr url, whichever you prefer.
Please help me out here guys. I can remember how difficult life was months ago when I was still new to this and didn’t know the tricks I know now. I’m sure you remember that time as well. By making this video, we may be able to help anyone who doesn’t have it figured out yet! Fellow Limb-Lackers should stick together.
Reblogs, replies, and messages in the inbox are all great ways of submitting your tips. Also, include what you’d like me to give the credit too in the video.
Well, even if I’m flying solo tomorrow, its okay.
Because I get my running blade tomorrow.
You guys, I haven’t ran a step in almost a full year. I wasn’t that big of a runner before, but 2 miles was part of my week day work out. I hated every minute of it when I first started. But after about a month, running became a mood stabilizer for me. It really helped me clear my head.
Not only do I miss running distance, I miss running short spurts. You know, like running to your locker, or running to catch up with friends. Not being able to do that has been so frustrating.
Even if you don’t run often, its very upsetting to know that you physically can’t.
But tomorrow, I won’t have to deal with that pain anymore.
I’m determined. I will learn how to run on this new foot before nest week. I promise.
I will run again.
