I think even after the scars heal the hardness of the vein (underneath the skin) gives us all away. I have regular blood tests (once a month, but sometimes more frequently) and I've found that being honest is always the best way. Cos usually when Sparkles tells them she's a recovering addict
they will usually tell her she's done well, and that she has nothing to be ashamed of.
She's tried all the usual excuses, car accident, fell through a plate glass window...even illness that needed regular blood work, but they know
. So now she doesn't even attempt to hide it. I'm kinda proud, cos these scars and thrombosed veins stand as a testament to what Sparkles has been through and overcome.
Never feel bad love, cos no one should or can judge you, not unless they've lived your life. And medical professionals should know this better than anyone.
