About Me:

I have been living with vitiligo for over 16 years. I joined this network to meet people whom I could relate to and hopefully I could share my experience with. At the beginning I didn't really pay attention to it as I was quite young (about 9 years old) so it didn't cause a lot of concern. However, as I grew up, I became more self conscious about my looks and, quite frankly, Vitiligo didn't help at all. Fortunately, thou, as I grew older I became more comfortable with the way I look. I believe there are two main reasons that helped my a lot with coping with Vitiligo ; 1) Family and friends support & 2) the fact that I developed Vitiligo at such a young age which provided me with a LOT of time to come up with a coping mechanism which has been helpful at certain times:) Don't get me wrong, I do not feel a 100% good about myself but I think that I feel much better than the 10 year younger version of me. I believe that time is an essential factor in ones ability to cope with Vitiligo.
