Finally becoming comfortable in this skin. some days i hate it. other days it's like whatever. more days than not it feels like a 1000 rubber bands stretched each and every way across my torso. when it's cold it feels like its ripping. it peels, flakes and cracks. oh and my god the itching. all i know is this; i either embrace it or die. there is no in between. well, here i am mother fuckers. #deadpoolsstuntdouble at ur service. but i wouldn't be in this mindset if it were not for the many daily messages and comments about how great i look and how far i have come. most days i dont see me. but every now and then i catch a glimpse and its thanks to u all. love u fuckers

what burn? [swipe] i see a strong beautiful woman. a beautiful mom❤❤ - "i was burned in a house fire when i was 2 years old back in 1985. my mother was 19 at the time and my little brother was just 8months old. my mother was renting a small one bedroom house and noticed she smelled gas and had called the gas company. the crew never showed up for the appointment because they could not locate the house due to the fact that it was behind a couple other houses in an alley. it was either that night or the next night the house went up in flames in the middle of the night. my mom panicked and got out ok and left my brother and i inside. i was rescued by a neighbor and my brother was found by a firefighter. he died a month later.
over the years i basically grew up in hospitals and medical facilities and when i did go to school the kids were just soooo mean. i had friends here and there but kids would pull my wigs off and run around the playground with them and call me hateful names like crust the clown. i eventually had enough and became a class clown and got kids to laugh. i even stuck up to the bullies and took my wig off first and began chasing them around the school myself. lol. then high school hit and it was a different ball game because i just didn't fit in and had low self esteem and never had dates to homecoming or prom. i never really had a boyfriend or got invited to parties. it didnt help my parents were super strict so it made me want to act out more and get guys to like me. after i graduated high school i went to college 1000 miles away in georgia and not too much later i got pregnant with my daughter at the age of 20. i felt free and wanted that attention from men so i settled for her dad but it wasnt anything serious and because of that i wanted to "break up" with him but found out i was 6 weeks pregnant so i moved back home to michigan. i didn't know what i was doing but i think i did a great job. breastfeeding was not for me at the time so i fed her formula. forward to 14 years later and i'm pregnant at age 34 with a son that i've always wanted. #momlife #love #burnsurvivor #burnsurvivorsrock #motherhood #beautiful

#tbt. thankful for life. this accident makes me very mindful that life is very fragile. one can have it all today and opposite tomorrow. life can deal all sorts of hands. i am humbled and appreciative. and for everyone going through life’s struggles. don’t give up. it will only get better. #alhamdullah #burnsurvivor #alhamdullah (this pix was 5 months into treatment oh)

Welsh woman of the year 2019 winner! 😍🎉🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿
when i had my accident 6 years ago i did not expect to be winning awards for telling my story, as i believe i had no choice but to survive...
but as my parents often remind me, the choice i made was to find the positives in tragedy and to use my story as a tool to inspire others. so this award is in recognition of that for me and i’m honoured to have won.

thank you @creativeoceanic for a wonderful event celebrating women and their success! ✌🏻

It’s been 3 years since i’ve taken the first photo. at that time, i was in brussels trying to regain what was left of my hand functions and to find my will to live. whoever tells you that when faced with such a disaster you just want to overcome it, and you only want to live..don’t believe a word he says.. in those moments all you want to do is disappear off the face of the earth. gradually, with a lot of support and in my case - thirst of revenge for all the people who let this tragedy happen, i’ve managed to find a will to live. as i’ve struggled with mixed feelings of hatred, survival’s guilt, and wanted to get it over with, slowly but surely with the help of my wonderful family and my - i don’t have enough beautiful words to describe - my dearest friends, i’ve managed to overcome the feeling of hatred and replace it with love 💕and willingness to live and maybe power to help others, at least, by the power of example.
it’s been a looooong journey in a short amount of time, but today, i can sincerely say: i am happy to be alive.
i’m not great with words or expressing my gratitude for all those who have helped and stood by me in my worst, but 🙏.. i am here today because of you!

« j’ai tellement hésité à poster cette photo qu’il fallait que je le fasse » ❤️

parce-que prôner la différence sur les réseaux, c’est avant tout savoir prôner la sienne.
pour moi non plus, ce n’est pas toujours simple.
la première fois que j’ai mis un maillot sur une plage bondée de monde c’était l’été dernier.
seulement l’été dernier...
après 5ans de privation.
aujourd’hui, je poste une photo de plein pied.
et vous savez quoi ?
je crois que c’est la première fois que ça m’arrive.
j’ai su montrer mes bras, mon cou, mes épaules.
j’ai su montrer mes jambes, doucement.
mais j’ai simplement toujours été incapable de poster ce genre de photo...
estimant, à mon sens, que ça faisait trop.

mais trop quoi au juste ?
trop brûlée ? trop d’un coup ?
trop moi ?

je suis fatiguée des dictats.
de ce monde superficiel.
fatiguée qu’on nous dise ce à quoi la beauté devrait ressembler.
que la société définisse la beauté pour nous.

déshabillez-vous.
démaquillez-vous.
coupez vos cheveux.
enlevez vos biens matériels.
qui sommes-nous à présent ?
comment définissons nous alors la beauté ?

j’ai envie qu’on casse les codes.
qu’on prouve au monde que la beauté commence lorsqu’on décide de s’aimer.
de s’accepter.
d’être soi-même. ❤️
