To be inspired....
 
I know I don't come on here as much as I should. The mistakes I have made, the feelings I have had should be shared with the people who understand on here or need answers.
I have a lot of information to give to people, especially people who are teens or youths who are worried about what other people are going to think of them. The thing is, if people can't see you for who you are, then they are not worth being your friend or spouse! Yes, I find it hard to tell people, is this what this world has made of us? What defines beauty? I have Capillary venous malformation which is offically confirmed as KT syndrome, which has affected my entire right leg.
I proudly wore a bathing suit on the beach for the first time!!
Who cares what people think, I have had a normal childhood, lots of friends, boyfriends, relationships. It never really mattered to them, although at times I though it would. It never changed the person I am, YES I HAVE A BIRTHMARK!!! I am not a freak, Im not an alien, I am a person, who has love and support in my life. I have never let it get me down! Each an every one of us is beautiful and unique!! Through out the years, I have noticed, If you made a big deal and were embaressed by it, people where more ignorant towards it. But if you embrace it, and you say YES I Have a birthmark, I am still the same as you, I am happy, and content in my life, people react like, oh ok your not "different" than me.
This summer has changed my life!!!! It took me 26 years to realize most of this!!!! I have told everyone about my KT, I even took my best friend to the doctors with me!!! Im not gonna hide anymore! Yes, I have KT syndrome!!!
