I have two big scars on my body and two smaller ones. The scar on my back (the one you can see on the picture if you really look) is from when I got very sick as a small child of only two years old. One of my lungs stopped working and I had to be admitted to hospital for quite some time and at one stage my parents weren´t sure if I was going to make it. I can´t remember this of course but I have always had a fear of doctors which is so unfair to them because they (of course) saved my life. The two small tiny crosses at the side of my stomach is where the tubes were attached to me so I could get enough nourishment.
The other big scar is from when I had an emergency c-section when giving birth to our oldest son and later they very carefully added a second scar on top of the first one when I had a planned c-section when delivering our youngest son due to complications during both pregnancies.
All my scars resulted in happy endings with everyone surviving and living healthy and happy lives so I am very proud of all of them. They are part of my history and who I am.
I will always have my scars and I don´t want to hide them in any way what so ever. They are a part of me and always will be.
