because these boards were not nearly as negative before
being short does suck though...
but these boards used to be pretty positive
not any more....I would not have gotten this surgery if I had saw more diaries like mine
Crimson, I agree with you. I've also noticed that these boards have become highly negative in the past year or so. These boards used to be so positive and gave me so much hope. I have plenty of hope in myself, and I know without a doubt I'm going to be fine in the end.
But these boards have become toxic in some ways. I'd almost suggest that mods somehow organize the board so you can have complete/positive diaries in one area and then all the unfinished/negative ones in another. Or, just find another way to organize all this information better. People should hear the negative stories too. People need to do their homework. I researched this surgery for almost 2 years, so nothing that has happened to me (except...that DAMN LEFT SCREW) has been much of a surprise.
I still would love another inch of height, and I feel very strongly that I'm not going to change my mind on that. HOWEVER - I am approaching it with a level head, trying to accept/enjoy what I've achieved so far, and will be super careful with how I go about getting the inch.
And again, men 5'9" and up (no matter where you live) really don't need this surgery. At those heights, it's just a luxury and (mostly) in their own heads. But, mazeltov to the 5'9" and up guys that get LL!
