Since she's still in recovery, Connie is used to people staring at her, but says she doesn't feel the need to explain her looks all the time. "I wouldn't mind if somebody came up to ask me, 'Hey, what happened to you?' I would talk to them. That wouldn't offend me," Connie says. "But the sneers and the secretiveness...I can feel them looking at me. I can't see them, but I can feel it."
