I've just joined the online community and was wondering if anyone else has any type of leg malformation. My right leg is about 6-7" shorter than the left due to a congenital birth defect. Sometimes I feel like I'm the only one who suffers with this problem and I would love to reach out to anyone who has endured the pain, the "looks" I'm given by others and sometimes the prejudice with job interviews, the dreading of going to the beach, not feeling "safe" to wear certain clothing. A wear a prothesis because I was born in 1958 and there was nothing they could do to repair the damage. I'm very outgoing and fun to talk to but find I'm lacking in understanding of my condition.
