I do remember after working on the job for months a coworkers noticed it and asked if my boyfriend hit me. It was funny to me that she just noticed it. Has anyone else experience this?
@sonvous1: Yeah, I sometimes get late reactions too. However, I have found that most people whom I see on a regular basis, like at work, don't often ask me about it. My questions usually come from complete strangers -- like cashiers when I'm shopping they will say "what happened to your eye?" This usually makes me feel terrible and I'm trying to think of something to say besides "it's my birthmark." I think I'll start saying "Nothing happened," because nothing happened. LOL. Or "what business is that of yours?" I just hate to be so defensive about my mark.

@sonvous1 I would love someone to chat with one-on-one, so please inbox me if you're open to communicating. Thank you!
