"Never did like that much," is a baller and superb way to express your irritation with the way the patriarchy refuses to acknowledge how badass you are.

"The brain can get sick too." 

Re-make of this post.

End mental health stigma.

the PTSD one always looks so creepy to me

My brain probably looks completely dark lol

Looking at the cleft lip tags makes me really sad.

No one gives us any recognition for how hard it is to live with it.

The pain of surgery and braces and everything in between. 

I unfortunately rebelled during that process and now it looks like I may never see the end result of the final surgeries. I wish I hadn’t. It would have been all over by now. 

But also the horrible psychological damage that comes with it. I try my best to stay positive and tell myself it isn’t that bad but I still continue living life with these tricks to hide it. 

If you are reading this and you have a cleft lip/palate, I want you to know that you are a strong, gorgeous, incredible person. Don’t you dare let someone else (or maybe even yourself) say otherwise

cut-for-lohan:

I’m about to get emotional and gooey and stuff but here we go. Today, November 27th 2012, after 18 years of being less than satisfied with my facial appearance and breathing ability through my nose, my journey is over. My wonderful surgeon (who’s name I may give out later, ill have to ask him) gave me the best gift to ever give someone. Pride. He made me proud of myself and my appearance. 

My cleft story: 
On March 3rd 1994, I was born with a pretty standard cleft lip/palate. My surgeon did an excellent job repairing it and I’m so thankful for him. After the numerous infant operations I was good to go. (He’s actually on the board of Plastic Surgeons). 
In 3rd grade I began braces with an expander for my uppers as well. 
In sixth grade I had a bone graph. Bone was taken from my hip and put into my mouth to support the teeth since obviously there was a gap due to the cleft. 
Finally after years of growing, in 2011 I was told I could get a new nose (thanks ObamaCare <3) 
On January 17th 2012, my first nose job consisted of shaving down my VERY large bump in the middle of my nose that prevented me from breathing through my left nostril, as well as lifting up the droopy tip to make it more….ethnically fit my face you could say haha. 
I was satisfied with the results but not entirely. I still had a very noticeable lop sided nose. My right side had a normal/big nostril which was good for breathing while my left side was tiny as could be and 95% unbreathable. 
Then on November 20th I got my braces off after 7 YEARS (5 years consistently through high school which was torture haha)
 
So which brings us to today. Today my wonderful doctor took cartilage from my ear to build out the left side to make it bigger. He also took a tiny chunk from the left side of my nose for a more thinner look as well. He also made a small cut under my lip to make it more symmetrical too. To finish off he also raised the tip more since it sagged after the last operation a little. 
So now, siting here, kinda teary eyed, I just want to tell all cleft patients or all people born with a facial deformation that it gets better. And while I may not be the most religious person ever, I have never felt so close to god ever in my life. I feel truly blessed for my family, friends, health, and my doctor. My cleft was always the number one thing on my mind and now I feel like I can finally live a life that I have always dreamed of. I can’t wait. 
Feel free to talk to me about anything :) 
(Sorry if there’s any errors in here, I’m high in meds right now and yeah) 
heres some pictures if ya just wanna snoop. Sorry for the gross one haha

I love how people that have cleft lip and cleft palate, never talk about the struggle they go through. The struggle that they want to have normal smile and would do anything to have a normal smile. The every day thought that we aren’t are cute and that we’ll be alone for the rest of our lifes. The…
