Hey, everybody! This is the first entry in my leg lengthening diary.  I hope that others can benefit from my experiences the way I did from the stories of others.

Well, let me begin by introducing myself to give a bit of background information:

- Name: Sunyoung Lee
- Age: 37 year old
- Gender: Female
- Nationality: South Korean, currently living near Seoul
- Weight: 55 kg
- Current height: 158. 6 cm
- Desired height: + 6~8 cm (As much as possible)
- Surgery type: LON (Lengthening Over Nail) on tibias
- Doctor: Dr.  Donghoon Lee
- Date of surgery: 2/15/2017

I've been working here in Korea as an engineer for about a decade now, but am planning to immigrate to Germany soon in order to enter graduate school and start the next stage of my life.  I've been fortunate enough to be given an extended break from my job, and since the desire to be taller has been getting more intense lately, I figured that this would be the opportune time to go through with this surgery- and so, I am :)

My height is nothing abnormal for the typical asian girl.  In all reality, living in this country I could be quite content with it.  But, as many others who may be reading this can attest to, a short stature such as mine creates some dissatisfactions in one's life that others who aren't in the same position may not be able to empathize with. 

I want to wear designer jeans without having to bring them to a tailor so they can butcher and bastardize them.  I want to wear a long coat without feeling awkward or ridiculous.  In essence, I feel that I cannot express myself aesthetically the way other, taller girls are able to with their stylistic choices.  I'm sick of looking up at my friends and family and of being eclipsed by them.  Even when I'm in line at the store or the bank, I feel as if I'm barricaded in by the people in front of and behind me.  It may sound trivial to those who are naturally gifted with height, but for those of us who aren't, it's not the most pleasant feeling.

Whenever people comment on my height (even though I know most of them mean the things they say in an endearingly), saying things like, "You're so short!" or using more passive language, such as "Aww, you're so cute!" (you know what I'm talking about), I always feel, well…simply not good about myself.  The only response I can usually muster is, after playfully acknowledging my diminutiveness, "Yes, but I'm flexible!" Pretty sick of saying that.

So, here I am now.  Thank god for this MMT community, it has proved to be a wealth of invaluable information about the different surgeons, health professionals, surgeries and patient experiences out there.  There are a lot of brave people, people with more guts than myself, who have served as inspirations and educators to people like me. 

I hope this diary can in some way contribute to that tradition.  Also, just the act of composing it has really encouraged me in this whole endeavor, and has made me feel much less alone and, consequently, more courageous.
