WOW! Just Wow!
Every person considering cosmetic procedures should watch an episode or two just to understand potential risks. Sometimes things go terribly wrong and one must consider those possibilities.
After a few episodes and several buckets of popcorn I started thinking about why we do what we do to our bodies. Then I began to ponder the effects of Rheumatoid Arthritis on my own wonderful body.
This little painting and a few companion pieces were the products of my wandering mind (note the shoulder replacement scar.)
I think they’re kind of fun, a little Dali-esque, and if nothing else, conversation starters.
for the record:
I’m not opposed to cosmetic procedures. In fact, I had my upper eyelids done several years before my insurance would fully cover the surgery as a medical necessity. I got tired of holding up the outer edge of my eyelids when I was reading at the end of the day, and I didn’t want to wait any longer. Glamorous, right?!
After I did it I was thrilled!
I did not look younger, but I no longer looked tired and angry. I felt like my face better reflected my self.
It was a total win for me.
