My left arm keeps me reminded of where I was, while my right reminds me of where I am. Things do improve, it’s not just a saying- take my word.
I wasted years in long sleeves, trying vitamin e and silicon patches, because it took me years to realize that anyone who will judge you because of a little scar tissue is not worth knowing, anyway. I know you don’t like compliments (so sorry in advance, very sorry Annie) but honestly I wish I had been half as brave and strong and positive at your age as you are now. Truly, I admire how open and honest you can be about something so painful; I bet I’m not the only one who teared up a bit, reading those two sentences. All the best with your recovery, angel, I hope things will keep improving. x
