My name's Pennie, I'm a mom and a wife. I have been recently discharged from the Army after nearly 20 years. I had an accident. When the accident first happened, it was an emotional roller coaster. I was hating myself and feeling uncomfortable – I was in so much pain as well.
I was looking into the plastic surgery within weeks of the accident because I was uncomfortable. I didn't feel like myself, and I really hated the sight of myself in the mirror.
Beauty to me is the ability to be you. It's good to be able to walk out of the house knowing that I look like me again! I'm not embarrassed anymore.
