As Spring like weather approaches, so does the need for flip flops and short pants. I love to wear capris, but this year it seems like I can't bring myself to put them on. Ya see I have massive scars from the surgery I had in December to put a metal plate in my leg. One side is a long, perfect medical scar. The other side is a nasty scar from the damage that the bone did to pressing against the skin. I am very self conscious about it. I am worried about wearing flip flops and capris this year not only because of the ugly scars, but also because of the fact that my leg is still very thin and frail compared to the other leg. For over 4 weeks, I was not allowed to put any weight on it. So, my leg grew very thin and the muscle was almost non-existent in it. Although it is no longer as bad as it once was, and heals a little more each day, I know this summer I will get a lot of stares and odd looks. Do you have scars that you are self conscious of? Are there reasons that you won't wear certain attire? Do tell.
