I have lived a life in which real things have actually gone very wrong. Here I was, having just given myself something I very deeply wanted. So why was I so unhappy?
Thankfully, I live in Los Angeles, so I have friends who have also had cosmetic procedures. I texted two of them, who confirmed that they also were miserable after their surgeries. Why hadn’t they told me? They thought it was just a “them” thing too.
