I am terribly sorry to have neglected you all these past months, but after all of the advise I received I felt that I needed some time to myself and truly figure out what I wanted to do. So I went and volunteered at the local elementary school and even enrolled in free elocution lessons at a community college. I was starting to think that maybe I can feel much better for myself without any alterations, unfortunately my one week of serenity was shaken on the 5th day I was volunteering. Don’t get me wrong I really enjoyed volunteering.
I was in charge of story time and the mini drama production the children were putting on. Kids are just simply oozing creativity! The children would draw their favorite scenes from the stories we’d read and were also given the privilege of designing their own outfits for the show (with adult supervision of course). I was having so much fun making glittery princess hats that day and watching kids create the most bizarre story about a princess mummy frog that can grant everyone a wish with a hop, leap, and a jump. Then as I was calling out to my favorite pupil she came running up to me giddy at the sight of her new hat she stopped to wipe my nose of the excess glitter. She looked up at me with wonder and stated “Teacher! You have such a big nose!”. I forgot how brutally honest children can be. That little encounter brought my body issues back to the center of my mind. I tried to brush it off but the next day something similar happened with another student as he pointed out that I should play the wicked witch due to my “big nose”. He didn’t say it to be mean as you could see he thought it was a wonderful idea that would make the play better. Needless to say it was the straw that broke the camels back. I decided that I had to do something and so I WENT FOR IT.
I guess this is just the long winded post that is simply meant to read “I went ahead and had the rhinoplasty and did my chin”. I had them done separately and did my research on the best plastic surgeon for the jobs. And a big Thank you to the plastic surgery community here at wordpress because you guys offered me a great resource for my next step. I went under the knife unafraid. Now I am not gonna lie the recovery was definitely painful and I was extremely happy that I had access to every kind of pain killer imaginable, but I feel that I need to write about my life post-surgery.
Wow, I just reread and I feel like this might be a bit of an overload for today, so I will leave the rest for another day. This in no way is a blog about advocating for any view, but it is about stating the results of what I have viewed so I hope you all bare with me.
