Hey guys! So I've changed my new years resolution to do one post a month because I really don't know what to write about and I can only say I'm feel good and looking better so many times.
My hair is growing back so nicely. Its at a length that if i touch it I can't tell that its short. I tried to do the inversion method to help speed it along but I'm not disciplined enough to do it. Some people do it for like a week and see results but yeah, I don't have the time for that. I am excited because my cousin has started a hair growth line called Miraculous by Mi Massie. I'm going to be consistently using those products and I'm confident they will help me with my hair growth as well.
So the video below is going to show you a couple highlights from my last appointment with my prosthodontist. In the video you can see what my mouth looks like after the surgery. I understand that some people may feel uneasy by it so if this is you DO NOT WATCH THIS VIDEO. I want to give a shout out to my new friend I met on twitter named Jenna. She encouraged me to put a video out there of this. I've probably sent pictures of my hole to maybe 5 people max. Maybe those same five people have heard me with out my obturator in. Im so self conscious of it I haven't made a dentist appointment because I don't want someone in my hole, spraying water around, touching it, or asking questions. I'm just SO self conscious of it BUT it is a part of me and I should accept it and be proud of it.
My whole life I've struggled with my weight. I was always the biggest of all the people my age. When I got to high school I was in fit club and I did weight room for gym. I counted calories, I did slim fast and special K diets. Maybe I would lost 10 lbs but I was and still am chubby. It's cool to be conscious of your health but I was obsessed. I feel like after 5 years I should have taken the hint: Be happy in the skin you're in. It wasn't until I got this surgery that I stopped caring about weight loss because: 1. I'm not as big as I think I am and 2. I was more concerned with what I was going to eat every day. Most importantly now I'm super self conscious about my hole and the way I sound, I hate that I have a lisp, and sometimes when I eat, talk, or laugh, my obturator falls out and that is annoying.
I guess the point I'm trying to make is that you shouldn't be self conscious about who YOU are. If you've got it, flaunt it. I posted this video to help me step out of my comfort zone about my hole. I'm hoping that I encourage you guys to do the same.
