MFP-BT_When-Stare-at-Scar-Prosthesis_AWhen I stare at someone’s scarred face or prosthesis, what I may be saying is, “I’m trying to understand and learn about something that is new to me. I’m worried something like that might happen to me.” You can support me by giving me a simple and clear explanation and reassurance. “That is a new leg—it looks different, doesn’t it? But watch; it helps her walk. Your legs help you walk.” Reassure me that I am safe and healthy. “It’s not the kind of owie that you have.”
