I suppose we all know our own flaws, have our own insecurities.
I've never had long, lovely legs. That's not really so bad. My legs are strong and I've always been thankful for them - even though they are short and "sturdy."
Nevertheless, over time - and specifically over the course of 4 pregnancies, I've developed what is not an uncommon - but still unsightly - occurrence, which makes me that much more self-conscious. Spider veins. They are scattered here and there and actually if I had a tan and wasn't so blindingly white at the moment, then they wouldn't be too bothersome. However, I can't say the same for the bulging vericose veins. It started with Hope and has gotten progressively worse with each pregnancy.
I just bought some shorts I really like and that are comfortable and were a great maternity find. They should keep me through the summer and on vacation - but I almost hate to bare my legs.
I realize that that is silly and a bit self preoccupied. And yet, the stretch marks I gained from 3 pregnancies don't bother me nearly as much. I also realize that it is pretty common and there are surgical treatments, but it's doubtful that I'm going to spend money on that. I'm also not going to wear support hose in the summer to try to help it either.
So what's a girl to do? I guess just confess to myself and the rest of the world that neither physically or in any other way am I perfect and then get on with life.
