Don't give up! MANY companies make footed pajamas for adults. Check out Privatina's:

I guess you could say it falls in the category of my obsession, too.

I have a sweater that I stole from my dad that is 4X and 100% cotton. I love it and wear it all the time. (He finally gave up on trying to get it back from me :lol: ) It is a knit-style sweater and nearly seven sizes too big for me. I also love the handmade quilt that my biological great-grandmother made for my biological father. I have slept under it for twenty years and will till the day I die.




edited 12-26-12 due to me finding for certain who it was that made the quilt :xD:

I own a German flak vest (what I'm wearing in my profile picture) and some bulletproof vests (one is concealable for use in public: Don't want to arouse too much curiosity or be labeled a "Terry Wrist"). The flak vest has a Kevlar collar that can be put up to protect the neck/base of skull region, which makes me feel quite secure.

There are many online stores/surplus stores with them. The cheapest you'll find one for is about $85 (flak vest) and $120 (bulletproof vest). One of the bulletproof vests I bought, the other was given to me by an older friend who's a retired police officer.

They run anywhere from $110/120 up, depending on condition and style (some have more coverage). I've seen some in the 3-400 dollar range. The concealable ones do not weigh much at all, but do tend to be able to be worn mmore tightly, which is generally sufficient to focus my mind/reduce sensory issues at work or in other public situations.

Convert your wheelchair into an Armored Personnel Carrier :lol: How effed up would that be? "Don't mind me, I'm just running over the snotty little brat kids to get to the ice cream bars faster..." :twisted:

Now that I have finally found it, I will post it here: My (old-school) PASGT vest. Yes that is my hideous foot making an unintentional cameo in the photo.

PS: Ulgh! Those tiles need to go so bad... :embarrassed:

Hey! You're foot's shaped almost like mine. My second toe isn't quite as long as yours, but it's almost as long as the big toe.

Other than the color, I rather like those tiles.

:lolfloor: :lolfloor: Thanks! They are so 1970s, I really want to get those ones that have the appearance of hewn stone, but as this is merely a laundry room, fancy floor tiles really don't matter. The funny thing about my feet is the fact that the second toe is much longer than the first one on my left foot. My parents always said they were the most hideous feet they've even seen. If I had my feet crossed while they watched television, they'd complain that the hallux blocked out the TV. :o :embarrassed: We should have a big/awkward feet pride day.

Ask your parents if they think the Statue of Liberty's foot is hideous.
