Default If Anyone Needs To Talk

Hey guys,

I found this website about a month ago and I think it's great.

I am not a teen anymore, but I know how hard it is to be a teenager with a birthmark. I also know how alone you can feel sometimes and that you feel you are the only one out there that feels like this. I thought I would post this thread to let anyone know that if they just want to talk about stuff or need advice they can email me.

I am 24 years old, I have a port wein stain that covers most of my left leg. I know I am pretty blessed to have what I have. I hated it when I was younger when I thought nobody would like me, or people would think I was a freak or something, but as I got older, more confident and more mature, I realized I was the only one that thought that and in all actuality, no one has ever cared about my birthmark, only I did. My best advice to everyone out there struggling is to become confident in yourself. Once you have that, you can tackle anything that comes your way. I have excelled in school, sports and have many friends and have dated wonderful and good looking guys. My birthmark didn't hold me back from any of this, so don't let it hold you back!

Don't be afraid to contact me if you guys need some sisterly advice or help...

-Jen
