Great story Sabrina. I hope one day that we're all be able to wear our scars (or whatever we have and shouldn't be ashamed of) like badges of honor to show the rest of the world that we're survivors.
This weekend I was part of a group photo. I think for the first time in my life I didn't try to get in the back of someone else and didn't care that my fat body was out in the front. Geez, it only took 61 years to get to this point.
