My name is Darryl, finally had the guts to open this account as I have struggled for a very long time with my nose and I have no idea where to turn to assist me getting it fixed.
As an active child living in South Africa, i managed to fall and damage my nose, the cartilidge was crooked and eventually grew to block the right nostril so I could not breathe however they could not operate on me as a child as the cartilidge was too soft. As a teenager, the doctors did eventually remove the middle bit of cartilidge however due to my accident as a child, i still have breathing issues through my nostrils and i have a dent in my nose as you can see in the photo.
I have approached the doctors here in UK and its deemed a cosmetic prodecure so unless I have real issues breathing or i go to a cosmetic professional, there is no chance i can get this done.
I have lived with the embarassment of this my whole life and i hate pictureof me being taken, its not only affected me physically but emotionally also. I have to consider is living with the shame of a physical issue or attempting to ask for help, worse. i have chosen asking for help.
I am not the sort of person to ask for help to be honest, i pride myself on being quite independant but i am just in a position to get this fixed myself financially or on the NHS.
If anyone would take the time, to read this and choose to donate i would be eternally grateful. Its a simple gesture in a world where the body beautiful seems to be so important all i am asking for is to breathe properly and look normal.
