Kendra came in to see me about some scars she had on her upper right thigh.
She says, "I have self-inflicted scars that I have thought about covering up for years. During my adolescent years, I struggled with depression, anxiety, and body dysmorphia. Even though that time in my life was over ten years ago, the scars were still always a reminder. I wanted to cover them with a peony; it's my mom's favorite flower because her mom loved to grow peonies. So now instead of seeing scars that remind me of a painful past, I will see a beautiful peony that reminds me of the strong women that I come from. I am excited for Victoria to add color to it in four weeks! "
