Hi,

Just wanted to say thank you for your post. It shows that not everybody is judgemental. I am glad you have not had any problems in this department. Now you just need to work on your confadence and your self-esteam. I am only 24, but because of my facial PWS and now going blind, I have learn to not let the comments get to me. Let it go in one ear and right out the other. First step I think is for you and your girl friend to go out and find yourself some styleing shorts and wear them around town and find out how many people really do pay attention. I think you would be suprised that because of the location you probably will not get as many questions, looks, stares as you think you would. I get them daily trust me, but I turn it into a educational topic so that normally scars them off pretty quickly unless they are interested LOL.

Thanks again for posting and look forward in hearing more about you.

Hank
