    i usuaLLY end up just starring back at them. I live it wen they ask me about my leg. I always come up with some outraged story for them. The shark one has got to be the best. i was in a waiting room ne time where everyone generally ignores me. Tis one kid comes up to me and I tell him about the shark. Not realizing everyone could here, I looked up and everyone was starring at me. Ooopsw. I usually give the adults my rescued cat story.

    My brother wears a body brace and a neck brace that kinda comes around the side of his head. He sits in his wheelchair backwards a lot cause he cant lean back and sitting straight is tiresome for him. So, he tucks his legs underneath him.
    I always get so frustrated when I see adults staring at him. And I mean stopping and staring. He always tells me hes used to it and not to get all upset, but I cant help it. Maybe I'm protective of him or something, but seriously......Don't stare.
    And you hit the nail on the head. They are setting wonderful examples for their kids.
    Remain Seated Please..... :o
