Your story is well written and brings something to mind that we often don't realize about ourselves. It is what is inside that matters most about a person. I wonder if that is what makes social media so popular. People don't see the outside appearance and are more likely to react to the essence of what we are rather how we appear on the outside. It is just human nature to be attracted to beauty and to be repelled my anything that borders on disgusting. I'm glad you found an answer to your problem but I'm sure it has changed your outlook. I wish everyone could have that change but I know there are those who will continue to feel less than worthy because of the way they are regarded by others.
I'm sorry you had to go through this but I'm happy you finally found something that helped. You're story is an inspiration to other people with skin disorders and will hopefully convince other people to think before they criticize and look down on someone because of physical appearance.
Exceptional, it is. Optimism has always been the way forward to every beautiful situation, even if things don't work out the way we planned. We just have to hope that things will get better. I am glad things turned out much better in your regard, and you didn't have to put up with continual usage of the pricey ointment. I kind of got emotional with your story. Long it seemed, but I didn't want to stop because of how engaging it was. A very warm offering for the contest! Best of luck in this regard.

Excellent post and well done throughout. Thank you for sharing your experience. It's bound to give hope to those suffering from an "incurable" condition. There are miracles out there if you don't give up.
Aw, I'm so sorry you went through this. Thankfully you were able to find something that worked. One of my children went on Actonel. It's been almost two months but she is finally almost cured. Thank goodness we live in a time where big Pharma can help in these areas. Good luck in the contest
