PICTURES DON'T ALWAYS TELL THE WHOLE STORY
While the most noticeable difference is obvious 😅 what you can’t see or know is the most profound differences between these two pictures.
The photo on the left was taken 2 years after my explant surgery. By that time, I'd healed from 90% of my #bii symptoms. It was taken on the set of a feature film I was producing in Louisiana. I was working outside in 95 degrees for 16 hours a day & night (lots of night shoots 😭) and I was on my feet all day. The “me” in the first picture would never have been able to do this, though it was her dream.
The first picture was taken 3 years ago by my father (he’s a commercial photographer) at my home. He had flown out to see me and I was doing my best to try to function while he was in town. I was sleeping 16+ hours a day and the full body tremors and tachycardia were becoming debilitating. I think I was actually wearing a heart monitor in that picture required by my cardiologist. 🥲
I’m an actress and was trying to get new headshots while my dad was visiting. I was giving it my all and trying to look like I had my 💩 together. What you also can’t see in the picture is the acne, the melasma, the constant inflamed lymph nodes and scary breast lumps, the elevated liver enzymes and my screwed up gut, hormones & thyroid.
I am sharing openly because I want to help others. ♥️ Even though this makes me feel extremely vulnerable it feels wrong to not share what I’ve experienced and healed from. I want women to know they are not crazy, they are not alone AND that healing is possible! ❤️🩹
Sending so much love & light to you all! I am here to speak candidly about my symptoms, explant, healing and more. 🙏🏽
