I can relate. I have scars that are generally hard to see unless you know where they are. Several were a result of a car accident as a passenger, January 14, 1986 – A Day That Changed My Life. One was from a bicycle accident when I was young that required stitches; another was from diving off a very short pier (maybe 3′ high) and connecting my head with another child’s head which split my right eyebrow wide open. It was on July 4th and getting a surgeon to come into the E. R. took four (4) hours to stitch me up. One of the worst is near the apex of my chin (jaw?). It has slowly healed since 1986 and unless I move my head a certain way, you probably won’t see it. This scar is why I got a helicopter ride to the E. R. since they weren’t sure about the extent of my neck injuries. Thankfully, I was released from the hospital several days after being admitted. Which was a miracle as they thought I would be in there for weeks.
