Just as I rely on beauty products to enhance my confidence (spray tan, eyelash extensions, lipstick), now I also rely on my bionic arm.
When I’m wearing it, I have more confidence and am more comfortable with myself.
I no longer see wearing a prosthesis as an admission that I feel insecure without it, but as a lighthearted accessory.
I’ve adorned it with black nails, jewelry, and tattoos.
But I do acknowledge that relying on it too much can be dangerous.
