As the title of this website suggests, I’m an amputee. I lost my leg due to a neurological condition called Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD). However, there’s much more meaning in the word “amputated” as it relates to my story. It also refers to the mental, emotional, and spiritual amputations that I’ve experienced. Even though my neurological condition and having my leg amputated were both very difficult and painful; the mental, emotional, and spiritual amputations I’ve experienced have been far worse.
