being called 95

No one really understands what it is like to have a port-wine birthmark especially on the neck. people constantly call me names and say that I don’t belong here. I hated it. Just because I have a birthmark on my neck didn’t mean I don’t belong.All it meant is that I am different. people started calling me 95 because of it’s shape. other people called me hickey girl. and laughed at me. I couldn’t bare it. I wanted to burn off my birthmark. Then I realised it’s a part of me. I can’t just remove it to be happy. I don’t know what to do now. everyday when I go to school and other places like the bus I feel like I want to kill myself. I feel like I don’t belong.I feel like people are laughing at me from every corner I turn. I don’t know what to do except embrace it. I don’t know how to do that either. It eats me right up. if you know what to do or how to embrace my birthmark can you pls inform or help me in any way you possibly can. I need your help. If any of you could tell me what to do, do it just to make me feel different and better.

do you ever wonder what it would be like without your birthmark?

How do you handle the rude comments made about your illness, disability, or physical difference?

When people make rude comments about my facial birthmark, I typically respond in kindness. Only a few times have I unleashed the sarcasm, but I constantly think of jokes or sarcastic responses I want to give...but am not brave enough to say in that moment. So often I come home and say, "This is what someone said about my face. This is how I responded, but this is how I *wanted* to respond." Do you feel obligated to be kind when you respond to people, or do you ever have fun with how you reply to the unkind comments? #MentalHealth #Birthmark #PortwineStain #Ableism #ChronicIllness #Disability
