When I originally started, I was a recent below knee amputee. I was physically and mentally drained and had been shuffled through the medical system for ten years - resulting in eleven major surgeries that culminated in the loss of my leg. I was accustomed to being treated like a mere number, not a real person. Staff and doctors from other offices had left me feeling insignificant, and my medical needs were most often met with uncaring attitudes.
