First of all welcome to the group.
I am 24 years old with a facial PWS. Even being a guy I have tried cosmetic makeup at two different times in my life, but it made me look like a ghost with pale skin. So I decided not to wear it anymore. I have found out over the years that the pointing, staring, comments, laughing, and questions I have got are just people showing me how uneducated they are or how rude they can be. For children have found educating them about my birthmark and not to be affraid of people that are different is ok we are just special. For adults I have learned to let the comments role off my shoulders or go in one ear and out the other. It gets to the point where I do not even know they are looking at me becaue I do not pay attention enough. There are he few that I hear and I just make a smart ___ remark back to them that makes them look uneasy.
I have always thought that if someone can not except me because I have a birthmark then I do not need them in my life. It is negative environment and is not healthy for a person. It is just like if you ever became in a relationship with someone if you hide it from him it will just make things worse rather then telling him up front about your birthmark. If he can not except it that is his problem.
You just have to give yourself a mind set that it is not going to bother you when people look at you. People will always ask questions. Just be honest with them and turn to education. If someone is staring at you stare at them back with a glare.
Hope this helps. If you have any questions for me you can either message me back or email me directly. If you want to learn more about me and see what my birthmark looks like you can go to my website www.hankspws.com
