I have thousands of scars all over my body, and now I have the added bonus of stretchmarks! I also have quite a funny scar on my hip, from when I flew off a child's roundabout at a playground, when I was about 16! But today I am going to be talking about the large amount of small scars all over my legs.
I’ve tried to get rid of them. Not anything drastic like surgery but I’ve tried all the different types of scar healing creams you can buy. I’ve tried homemade remedies, I’ve tried herbal remedies. Nope, nothing. Still there. I don’t know if I could live with them forever if they don’t even start to disappear. Truthfully they do make me unhappy.
I can’t wear skirts, I can’t wear shorts unless I wear thick tights or leggings.
I boil in the summer because I’m too hot under so many layers, but I don’t want anyone to see. I don’t want people to be freaked out, or worse, feel sorry for me.
I wish I didn’t have them, I wish there was some miracle cure, but there’s not. I’m not having surgery, so I’ll just have to cope I guess.
Luckily, my OH doesn’t mention them, so I feel a bit more comfortable and he’s gradually helping me build up my confidence again.
Hopefully one day, they’ll fade enough for me to be able to get my legs out.
Until then, thankfully I’ve got a massive amount of tights & fake tan.
Do you have any scars?
