The scar.

I am not going to lie seeing part of my scar for the first time was traumatic. I new it would be hard but I was not ready for the rush of feelings that came over me. Sadness, anger and vanity were some. I know some people are thinking it's no big deal it's just a scar but it is my scar and it was a big deal to me. 

A week after I took this picture the rest of the stere strips came off revealing my whole scar. 

I stated at my scar for a while trying register what I was looking at. I thought to myself not so bad right? Yes I told my self not so bad until I realized it was not a strait line. I know as silly as it sound it bugged me that it was not straight. Hopefully in time my scar will fade and no longer bug me. Yes I know I should and I am greatful that it was not cancer. 


  1. It is tough especially when it's visible. I had a hard time with the 6in scar on my lower abdomen after a tumor was removed almost 4 years ago - and that no one sees. Give it a little more time to heal and get a tube of Mederma. Massage it in twice daily and it will help fade the scar out. I used it on that 6in one and there is barely a pink line there now.

  2. yikes. hopefully it will fade with time.
