CHICAGO (AP) - A Connecticut woman who was attacked by a 200-pound chimpanzee has revealed her face and says she's ready to heal and move forward.

On Wednesday's episode of "The Oprah Winfrey Show," Charla Nash says she's starting to get stronger.

The animal ripped off Nash's hands, nose, lips and eyelids during the February attack. She's being treated at the ClevelandClinic in Ohio.

Nash says she no longer has eyes, eats everything through a straw and can't breathe through her nose. But she says she isn't in pain and often goes for walks.

Nash also says it feels like "patches of tape or gauze" are covering her face and she doesn't remember anything from the attack.
