Owning it: Abbie continues to look at all the positives in her situation: ‘But I know I haven’t finished my treatments yet, there are other options and most importantly scars don’t define you!’

In her post she said: ‘I would love to say I am fully recovered but unfortunately I’m not and probably never will be as I know I’m going to have lifelong scars!!’

She expressed her disappointment with the fact the accident happened when she was only in her 20s, she said: ‘I’m 24 years old and I have to live like this for the rest of my life with these burn scars on my body!’

Abbie continued by looking at all the positives in her situation: ‘But I know I haven’t finished my treatments yet, there are other options and most importantly scars don’t define you!’

 ‘My scars are something I am proud of and should be more proud of as they show me every day how strong I am!

‘It has taken me a long time to accept that, but I think I am getting there!’
