a little reminder

This is my favorite commercial of all time.



I think that, for the most part, jaw surgery patients deal with a lot of issues with their appearance. I know that growing up, I struggled a lot with the way that I looked, and continue to do so. I always had a massive overjet, big front teeth and a little jaw. I was not happy at all with the way I looked. Although I now am aware that it is a medical condition and there are things that can be corrected, it isn't going to solve all of my problems. This video is just a little reminder that appearance is not everything, that every single person has issues with the way they look, and that regardless of changes in my appearance post-op, I am still the same person :)

    Well said Dani! I appreciate you posting this video as a reminder to all of us on here. It's reassuring to remember that no matter what, after all is said and done, we are the same person inside. :-)

    hiya dani, that video was right on spot.
    its so weird but like Tara said, we jus change on the outside but were always gonna be the same in the inside

    but thinking about it, we all have issues with the way we look but thats jus life. we always take for granted what others don't have, and we always realize it after we go thru somethn big..
