More Phun With the Phantom

This is getting wierd... but so cool!

I can feel my phantom foot as per usual but now I can also see "my foot". What's left to tell my brain that I don't actually have one? Nothing!

This means that the phantom sensation is actually getting stronger. To some extent, this could be great! If I know where it should be from feel, I'll be better using the prosthesis.

On the other hand, I feel it so strongly now that when I went to get up off the couch the other day, I tried to use both feet. That's a problem when you're not wearing the prosthesis at the time!

Something else that was really bizarre was the feeling of having a really tired foot when we were walking around one evening. I actually thought about losening my shoe laces for a few seconds as it felt too tight. We had a good laugh about that one!

  1. I was standing in a puddle of water one day and my left foot (the missing one) started to feel wet. It is weird, but most amps will understand.
