A Journey to Resilience


Losing a part of your body, like a leg or an arm, can be compared to when you lose a family member. Just like it takes time to forget about a loved one who has passed away, it also takes time to accept that you’ve lost a limb. When you first learn that you’re going to lose a limb, it can bring up a lot of memories, like all the times you used that limb to walk or play. You know that in the future, you won’t be able to do those things the same way anymore. Even though you understand that your limb is gone, sometimes it can still make you sad when you see the amputated part. It is okay to cry and feel grief in this situation, whether you do it by yourself or with someone else. Accepting the fact that you’ve lost a limb isn’t easy for everyone. You might come to terms with it, but you might still feel sad and cry sometimes. That’s completely normal.
