It has been over ten years since my car accident. It has been a very personal journey and has made me who I am today. I try to take from it positives. Most people in my life do not even know I was in such a severe accident. I do not like to share. I am a very private person with that information. So private, that still conceal my worst scars. I was very lucky not to have facial scars. For the first couple of years I wore turtle necks to cover my trac scar and a scar on my shoulder. I wore jeans in the summer to cover the scars on my legs. People tend to make comments to you when your wearing jeans in 100 degree weather. I avoided pool parties etc. Starting relationships with men was difficult. I met my husband 5 years ago, and he has given me the strength to expose several of my not so severe scars like my neck and lower leg the last two years. I wear shorts now, but long ones to still conceal my worst scar on my thigh. When my husband looks at me he says, “What scars?” I love my life, my husband, I am am very fortunate. The thing I can’t stand is people making comments about my finger, or neck, or lower leg scars. I guess I would like to just hide them so nobody knows. They are like" Oh my goodness, how horrible, how did that happen?" all I can think is, if they only knew about the more serious ones. They are scratches compared to the rest of my scars. I over heard people talking about my scars. What I guess I am trying to say is that I would love to talk to someone who has had similar issues with scars especially other women.
