Pictures and Video

So for all of you who know me or don’t know me I decided to upload some recent photos of me that were taken at my surgeons office. I also attached a video that is an animation of basically what my first surgery will be. It kinda seems a bit freaky when you watch to see how much bone and everything they will be moving, along with the bolts and screws they will be placing. I cant imaging watching an actual video of the surgery and not just some animation and I am telling you right now I am not going to ahaha. I’m sure that I would be grossed out and freak out even more to see what would actually be happening if you get what I mean ahah. I will try and post more photos and videos as time goes on to show how everything is going and so you can all watch as I progress through everything.

To be honest I didn’t realize how much my bottom lip differed from my upper lip until I saw the side view and above view photo of me, but that will eventually be fixed by one of the other two surgeries that I will be having. When they actually took that side view picture and the above view one, the woman taking it kept telling me to relax my lower lip and I was so used to keeping it in such a way so that I would look “normal” that it took me a while to actually get it to a point that was “relaxed”. I say “relaxed” because I spent all my life trying to not draw attention to my face that I basically trained my self to keep my lip in a position/certain way that it would look “normal”, so it was quite odd to keep it in a relaxed position sense it wasn’t something I was used to oddly enough haha. The only time I probably have my bottom lip in a relaxed position is when I’m asleep and let me add that I breath threw my mouth when I sleep and 90% of the time when I’m awake sense I can only breath threw one nostril half the time (yes I know I am odd haha) , which again would be fixed by one of the other two surgeries that I will be having after the first one. So if I try to breath threw my nose on a bad day I sometimes feel like I cant catch my breath/breath at all because I’m not taking in enough air threw my nose ahah (although I have to say this hasn’t been happening much lately so it is getting better somehow). Anyways I hope you enjoy the pictures and the video, like I said I will try and post more pictures and videos as time goes on. Thanks for continuing to read and follow me and Genna on this journey.

    Woah! Cool video. It is neat to see what they are going to do. It will be nice for you to be able to breath without so much trouble. You know I have always thought you were cute from day one, but I understand the want for improvement. I know you will do well. You have more in you than you know. Plus you have Genna!
