The Surgery Diaries: Getting the new wardrobe

I think it’s fair to say that when I had my surgery I was going through what you could call a Goth style phase. I could usually be found sporting mostly black, oversized clothes with characters like Emily the Strange and Ruby Gloom on them. I wore dark make to school most days, dyed my hair black and had the nail polish to match. Most people wouldn’t know it though to look at me now, and that is thanks to my surgery.

It didn’t take long for me to realise that none of my cargo pants and jeans were going to be wearable for the next few months while I recovered from the surgery. They would be tight on my hips and press on my new scars. At the time before I had the procedures done, I was too self-conscious to wear dresses and skirts. Mum and I took to the clothes shops to get something for me to wear. We got dresses and skirts in all different colours, lengths and styles. There was even a pale denim mini skirt! I really didn’t care what I wore as long as it was comfy and looked half-decent, (which was more than could be said for me).

When I went back into hospital for operation number two (which we’ll get to soon, I promise) my family told the doctors that I’d taken on quite a different dress sense . Even for a long time after operation two I kept wearing The New Wardrobe. Even after I did go back to my jeans, I got rid of my old clothes. It didn’t feel like me anymore. And, my family had spent so much money on the new clothes, I didn’t want it to go to waste.

  1. I used to subscribe to the “punk” look. I used to laugh when people would say “are you a punk?” I’m like.nooooooo well, whatever. I like to dress this way. Now days I dress really boringly normal, but you know. Sometimes I pine for my old wardrobe (and skinny tummy , even though I always ALWAYS thought I was fat… isn’t hindsight a good thing). Do you miss ur gothy ways?

    1. I love the punk look too (although it would have never suited me) so I can see why you miss it! I still miss my gothy ways sometimes, so I usually embrace it again every Halloween and incoperate it into whatever fancy dress outfit I’m wearing.
