She removed bandages. Prefer keeping mine.

My friend and I both have a history of hurts. Some should have long-since scabbed over and healed, no longer capable of causing pain.

If only that were true.

Today, we talked about those hurts. She has elected to strip away the bandages on hers, bare them to open air, and work toward healing. She admits to having many tender spots that will burn and throb when they get bumped...but she's willing to take the risk.

And me?

I think I will keep mine wrapped tight a while yet. I am not ready to risk the bumps.
