Are there phrases or terms you wish people wouldn't use when it comes to your illness or condition?
...What do you wish people would say instead?
People often call me "disfigured" because of my facial birthmark. But instead of saying I have a facial "disfigurement," I'd rather people say I have a "facial difference." My face is just a little different than the norm, and that's OK. I'm not disfigured, which has such a negative feeling and connotation behind it.
