How do you tell people about it?
I'm incredibly jealous of all you lucky ones that either showed the darkening late in puberty or had their parents help. I had neither, mine came in around the age of 5 and my parents completely ignored it. I was really hoping to read that laser had made a drastic improvement in the appearance but I'm really bummed to read that you spent so much money on something that didn't pan out like you wanted. I'm turning 22 and ever since I started wearing make-up I've ignored my birthmark I don't tell people about it unless asked or bring it up to friends and family. But I've got to ask: How do you tell people about it? I'm so ashamed that I can't just look like everyone else, I wish it was on some other part of my body just not my face. How do you deal with it when you're feeling so disappointed with the lack of options?
