Hey all, long time no see... Just been out of it for a long time after my last surgery but here I am and doing better. Well here goes... I don't know how to cope how my body looks and how I feel about myself anymore. I look at myself in the mirror and I cry from all the scars I have and feel as if no one will love me since society now a days wants a picture perfect woman which I know doesn't exist. But I've always been pretty confident about myself until lately. I don't know who to go to or where... I've had a lot of positive vibes off this site and when one post here everyone helps as much as they can which to me I appreciate a lot. Well as for me yes I had my first surgery done in my home town for a removal of a cisc behind my ovary... But my smart ass Dr didn't remove it and left it in there while he did a number on me. Yeah one more scar added there...besides all the poking and test I went through... So we found out through a nurse the Dr left it inside of me and I had to be sent to another hospital out of town as a emergency, Yh horrible ambulatory drive all the way there. As like any other hospital u have to go through the whole process and I waited for so long for my pain med which I cried my heart out all night since they didn't have the Dr prescribe it yet of course it was night time already... So Yh now more test more poking more of everything and waiting for a Dr to take me to get surgery done... One brave Dr did... I had my first surgery done but since the home town Dr did a mess I lost my ability to have children ever again... 💔😢... So then I had a colostomy for 1 yr and then had a reversal... Didn't go well during surgery so I needed the illeostomy which didn't go well with that either... But at least I got it removed after a month... It was a battle for me since each surgery. It was very hard on my family myself and the Dr... I am blessed to be here since I wasn't suppose to make it. But after all this now I feel useless and still sick after all this... I have a hard time walking and my back kills me... I can't get any type of medical service atm since I'm not working but I can't pay for one since again I have no money yet. I don't know what to do. I do want to work again but I get so tired very quick. I just feel lost and depressed all the time.
Hi Babydoll, I'm so sorry to read another horror story about medical incompetence and what people in this country go through when they don't have the necessary medical insurance. Something has to be done about that! Please don't give up on what it takes to get the medical financial aid you need to alleviate the pain you still have.
Don't worry about the scars. You're a beautiful young woman and any man worth his salt is not going to mind the scars. Please believe that. There are good men out there and you will find them.
Ty and I hope he is out there... If u find one throw him my way... 😊
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder is a statement most of us believe. So where is our beauty? I believe it is more important to be a person of beauty rather than a beautiful person. It is who we are rather than what we look like. Sure outer beauty can be nice but it's the inner beauty that really counts. Remember don't judge a book by it's cover? Another important statement that most of us know.
Confidence in who you are comes from within, keep looking inward because you have it in you.
It's a shame what the medical profession gets away with. Hang in there, good things always happen to good people.
Ty all... Sorry just venting a little since I've been pretty depressed. Thks to you all. ❤
Venting can be a healthy exercise in the right place - and this is the right place.
