I read about the boobie blues, regrets of having breast augmentation. When you get breast implants and some people, kind of like, freak out and think, like, “I don’t want this. I want them out.” I’m like, “That’s super weird, I’m totally not going to do that because I want this really badly.” But I did. I woke up one day and I was like, I don’t know maybe what 3-4 days into it and I was like, “Oh my God, what did I just do to myself?” And I totally panicked, freaked out, like thought everything was like wrong. And things were still, they haven’t settled yet. I remember I was like hysterically crying and I called S. Larry Schlesinger, MD, FACS and he’s like, “Hey, your fine. Gina, this is what you wanted but just give me a week. Give me 7 days. You still want them out, we’ll talk about it.” And I’m like, “I want them out now!” He’s like, “Give me 7 days.” 7 days later I’m like, “Hey doc, what’s going on?” Like totally different person. And it did pass but it was a real thing. And when it happened to me it made me realize, like, other people do go through these things that, you know, you think is very strange to you or me or whoever. There are other people and it is nice to have us to talk about it like and have that online community or physical community to be able to discuss it.
