Okay....so i used to cut...but, i stopped about 6 months ago, but i have pretty bad scars. My mom found out fairly recently and i asked if we could go to a plastic surgeon to see if they could get rid of the scars. Because i looked up some stuff and read some stuff about dermabrasion and eventhough it's done mostly on ppl's faces...i thought it might be able to work. But, my appointment is tomorrow, and i'm really nervous. I'm still really uncomfortable talking about it or letting anyone see my scars. I'm not totally sure what the point of this post is...but, i guess i just needed to get that off my chest or something.....anyway, if anyone has any ideas for being less nervous or whatever...that would be cool...lol thanks
I'm so nervous
Dont worry at all, this is your first appointment, they just want to see what what they can do to help you lesson the appearance of the scars. If all goes well, the surgeon will book another appointment for you for surgery. A good way seems to be laser removal. There is going to be some discomfort after, but you didnt kill yourself. So be eager to get it done because it is a way to help erase the scars of the past.
firstly you have to decide if this is what you want or just what your mum wants. if it's not then dont go through with it.
dont be nervous if you do decide to go through with it, because it is apart of getting over that bad stage in yr life.
everytime i look at my scars it only reminds me of why i did it in the first place and its a vicious circle becasue i being to get upset again so rather have them haunting you mabye its for the best but it's like most things you have to make sure yr ready and you're doing it for yrself not to please yr mother.
chin up, keep smiling! :laughing:
Im sure you could use some kind of cream to help the scars fade. Surgery does seem a bit extreme
