75. resisting the urge to pick, but not flash!

ahhhh. i am impatiently waiting for my (ewww, yuck) scabs to fall off. the urge is strong to want to help the process along, but nature MUST run its course if i want the best results possible for my scars. any messing around could make them worse, so i am leaving them alone.

the bottom halves of my nipples all scabbed over and it looks kind of creepy. fortunately, i am not freaked out as i know for others, this is par for the course.

my family had our christmas get together today. i was surprised when my aunt requested to see the new boobs in front of everyone and i ended up flashing pretty much my whole family. not then and there, but some one on one, and then near the end of the evening as people were leaving, i flashed a whole slew. they asked permission and i reassured them all that it was not creepy.

i think part of me flashing them was to reassure them that i am not marred. also, since there are so many females in my family, some of them may encounter a similar journey with their breasts and i wanted to show them that you can come out the other end still feeling and looking whole. all their responses were positive--some of them were in awe.

it will probably be another week or so before the scabs fall off, but everything still pretty much looks the same, so i won't be posting more pics until the scabs do fall off. i will still blog though, so stay tuned:)

  1. Yay! Thanks for your little note, it was nice to hear from you. I'm so happy that things are getting better! It is so funny how many people want to see but are too chicken to ask out of fear of being creepy. It's an strange and awful and amazing process, and I know I wish I had been able to see others before my own surgery! I'm thinking of you and sending you lots of hugs!
