Thatโ€™s the right actitud. When people Drs etc notice that you are anxious to find cure for your condition they take advantage of this , very few people really want to help you. I went to a lot. I spent a lot of money creams tanning beds and on and on

When I realized and was diagnosed with Vitiligo I immediately began to research the condition. Discovering that it really just causes white patches but not health threatening. . I decided I didn't need anymore Meds on my plate. I looked at it in a different perspective. . . What a more wonderful way to stand out from the Crowd then to look Tye Dyed. We will Never disappear in the Crowd with Nothing Outstanding about us. ๐Ÿ˜˜ #TyeDyedFlare
