Today on my story I was about to go on a run and I put on my old watch that I’ve had for years to remind my old followers of when I used to run distance. -
I flipped the screen and showed the watch band as I turned my wrist I noticed how visible my scars were on my forearms now that it’s summer and I am a lot tanner. -
I immediately got awkward and embarrassed, but still uploaded the story cause I felt like it was important to show. I have scars on my body from years of coping in a negative way. And that’s ok. And in the summer, those scars on my arms and my thighs become a lot more visible to the naked eye. -
And I refuse to be ashamed. I used to wear bracelets and watches to cover or would only wear long shorts, but not anymore. The stigma around mental health continues to break down around me and I am one of the ones who is breaking it down. -
I wear my shorts and my tank tops proudly. Scars and all. Because that girl that needed to cope that way was so, so sad. And I’m not her anymore. And if you meet me in person, I’m probably not the most likely person for you to expect to have these on my body. Which just shows, we never know what someone has been through and what stories they have in their bodies. -
Be kind to your friends. Smile at them when you see their legs and arms and bellies this summer. #scars#summerskin#allbodiesaregoodbodies
Some people see stretch marks, cellulite, thunder thighs, legs that def do not have a thigh gap... You know what I see? A strong pair of legs that could walk circles around the haters and tell stories for days, maybe even years.
They’ve cruised the open seas, even during some of the worst hurricanes, and have crossed the Atlantic twice. They picked me back up when I fell to the ground the night my engagement ended. They keep me from getting tired while I spend the afternoon jumping on the trampoline with my favourite little chick. They’ve helped me walk away from situations that are no longer meant for me. They’ve walked on some of the most beautiful beaches in the world and they’re what will take me on so many adventures to come.
Your stretch marks, scars, birth marks, eczema, cellulite, freckles and all the other parts of you that you may not really like, are actually the most beautiful parts of you. Love yourself. Appreciate everything your body has gotten you through. You are truly blessed to be where you are, and you never would have gotten there without all of your imperfections 💕
Melop E melem svojim lekovitim sastavom deluje kod opekotina prvog stepena intenziteta, tako sto odmah po stavljanju na opeceno mesto, bol umine i gubi se eritem ( crvenilo ) u relativno kratkom vremenu. Veliki rezultat ovaj melem je pokazao u skoro potpunom smanjenu, odnosno otklanjanju oziljaka i keloida nastalih od opekotina i drugih vrsta povreda. #saljic#melope#burns#scars#naturalproducts#pharmacy#apoteka#lilly#serbia
Sono piena di crepe, di ferite, di smagliature emotive.
Ho ferite sul cuore e negli occhi, un paio nei polmoni per le volte che ho smesso di respirare, e molte nel cervello, per tutto ciò che ho creduto ed invece non era. Ma ogni tanto succede che la bellezza di qualcuno che incontro riempia una crepa e le dia spessore. Ecco.
Io voglio intorno a me persone in grado di prendere le mie ferite e riempirle di colore, perché è un attimo che uno squarcio si trasformi in arcobaleno.
E per un arcobaleno vale la pena essere piena di cicatrici. #mylife#soul#scars#lamiavita#anima#cicatrici#rainbow#lavieestbelle#jadore

When I was #15 I started #cutting / #selfmutilating . Initially I didn’t know it would become a #habit or better yet a #copingmechanism . By the time I was #21 I had hundreds of #scars on my #wrists and even #suffered a trip to the #emergency room and received 8 stitches. I was in a bad situation. I had no support but I knew I was setting a worse example for the younger children in my life. (I was responsible for children in my extended family). I made a decision to quit and I did. I would suggest getting help but if you have none ALWAYS CHOOSE LIFE everything will be ok, I promise. I have not #cut myself in 10 years. Last year I decided to get a tattoo of open #wounds over my scars. Looking at my wrist with the accumulation of #selmutilation and #selfviolence I practiced I realized that if I hadn’t quit I would have probably #died along time ago. I was #overwhelmed with #gratitude . I started to recognize the gravity of my actions. When I I quit I didn’t realize I was saving my own life, literally. And that even if cutting didn’t kill me a combination of #self -destructive behaviors certainly would have. A friend of mines brother saw my tattoo and felt safe enough to express he was a “ #cutter “He also started as a #teenager , but unlike me he was still cutting. This meant he was experiencing severe #depression for over 15 years. Two months he killed himself on Thanksgiving in Lake Tahoe. If only he knew how much his brother loved him. How much I cared for him simply because of his experience. To those who are still self-mutilating: you are ok, you are loved, you are human, don’t be so hard on yourself, we love you. To the family members of anyone suffering depression, be extremelyabd excessively kind, honest, and loving. You mean something just keep it up. Be patient. You are needed and you may very well save your loved ones life. Don’t let death be what teaches you that, that’s why I’m telling you now. @Tara jiphenson @cthagod#shanishay#shanishayallday#156of365#mentalhealthawareness#mentalhealth#health
Brain Surgery 5 in 5 post op. we made it to day 121 On this journey towards healing. I’m still not taking pictures of myself. This week has shown me sometimes you simply have to ask in order to receive. Today the most beautiful of birds delivered new journals to me. I have gotten too far away from writing and it’s time to tell the story. I am beginning to see healing and glimpses of my body working to return to normal. The scars and cuts are starting to heal.The pain is still pretty bad and my heart rate has been elevated above 120 the entire week. I have battled some very hard interpersonal challenges with people I love dearly and hold in very high regard this week. I have been called a thief and selfish. I have been yelled at, cussed and put down. I have been told these trials are my fault for not praying the right wayand not being right with God. I have even been told to just let my breast go at 41 and follow Gods will and completely forgo reconstruction to stay in alignment with his will by not allowing any further surgery so he can completely be my healer. But, I know it’s a test to not take nothing personal and even under attack to try my best to be impeccable with my word. This week has definitely challenged me in these areas and forced me to work on love and forgiveness This week on top of the suffering over my body image I have been under complete volatile attack by people closest to me and whom I have made huge sacrifices for. But I am accepting it all as part of the journey even without knowing what the ending will be. I’m Focusing on just putting one foot in front of the other trusting that each step I’m getting closer to my true purpose.

What to expect after treatment:
Days 1-3: Swelling is seen immediately after the treatment, peaks at day 2, and starts to subside by day 3. *Taking Arnica pellets as directed three days before and after treatment significantly helps control swelling, however, swelling isn’t a bad thing! The reason this treatment works is that it triggers the body’s “wound healing” response that is responsible for increasing the production of collagen and elastin in the area of “injury” to begin the healing process. Swelling is a natural side effect of the “wound healing” response and is necessary to the process!
Days 3-7: Swelling improves and the brown dots (carbon crusts) start to slough off around day 5, however, with the aftercare cream and sunscreen you can conceal the dots so you can go out in public.
Days 7-14: The brown dots are gone and in their place is pink, new “baby” skin. It is crucial that post treatment instructions are followed and the skin is protected at all times from the sun! The skin is susceptible to hyperpigmentation if exposed to the sun while it’s still healing.
Weeks 2-8: You will forget you had anything done apart from people telling you you look great but they can’t tell you why! Skin will continue to heal and improve. The new collagen growth will gradually improve the texture and tighten the skin. Just sit back and enjoy your more youthful skin!!! As always, sunscreen is a must to protect your investment!
Weeks 8-12: New collagen and elastin will level out at this point and re-treatment of the area may be recommended depending on individual factors and skin condition prior to treatment.
Posted @withrepost • @dearpeopleind Our country does not have good infrastructure for treating burn patients. Burn injury is a huge public health problem. In fact, more people die of burn injuries in India than malaria and tuberculosis. As per the data extrapolated from the information received from three major government hospitals in Delhi, approximately two lakh burn patients become disabled and 1.4 lakh people die due to burn injury annually. This comes to one death every four minutes due to burns. Sadly, burn injury is still mostly unrecognised in our country.
ANGER. Something I’ve been feeling a lot of lately. As most of you know a few years ago I was in an abusive relationship. In October I had my first surgery on my wrist from an injury I endured during his abuse. A few weeks ago I had to have a second surgery on my arm as the damage done to my wrist was too big for the first surgery to actually fix. (Eventually I’ll have to have a third to get the plate back out.) Having to do this was like ripping off a band aid (again). It brought up a lot of forgotten nightmares as well as brought me one step closer to healing. A lot of people think once abusive relationships end, like any other relationship you can just move on from it and heal “like normal”. That’s not really the case. It takes a long time to heal. Often times people have ptsd, anxiety, depression just to name a few over things they endured not just physically but mentally, emotionally, sexually, financially and spiritually.
For me having to have this operation has brought up a lot of negative feelings. Horrible memories I’ve worked hard to move past as well as I’ll now have a rather large scar on my forearm as a constant reminder. I have so much anger because now this time I have to take to heal my arm takes me away from one of my biggest passions; cutting hair. Thankfully I have an amazing support system of family and friends who are always there for me. I also have amazing clients who are so very understanding for the time I need to take for myself.
Domestic abuse affects MEN and WOMEN!
The recovery process goes beyond just getting out of the relationship. Healing takes a very long time
There is nothing to feel embarrassed or ashamed of.
There is always someone listening.
Speak up, speak out. Your not alone. 💜💜
As a child + teen I was super spunky, FULL of energy + full of questions, outgoing, and cheery. I was rebellious + was the teen roaming the streets till the crack of dawn, BUT in all of that I was deeply aching, lost, and looking for a way to "fit." My heart was heavy. Loss + innocence was stripped from me. Protection was non existent + heartache was deepening. As I continued I suppressed my triggers + creeping thoughts that came along. Now as an adult I've decided my heart needs healing, newness, and change. As a wife, a puppy mama, hopefully one day a mother, a friend, a sister, a daughter; I've decided to face my trauma, my fears, my core beliefs about who I BELIEVE I AM. It is not without continuous effort + without tears. Over the last few years the anxiety + anger that stem from my core have paralyzed me, filled me with fear, + left me with confusion. This journey is not easy, but I want to be a better, healthier me. I don't know how long it will take, but I'm in this & hopeful. #idontmind@idontmind
