Vitiligo: A balancing act
I have a skin condition called Vitiligo. Vitiligo is an autoimmune disorder that causes pigment to disappear. My body is scattered with randomly shaped patches and spots that have lost all colour. I’ve named them my islands of white. Thousands of people are living with the condition in varying degrees. Although it is purely cosmetic with no other sinister symptoms, Vitiligo can be deeply debilitating. Self esteem can disappear along with the pigment, leaving many people who have the condition feeling odd, unusual, self conscious – sadly uncomfortable in their ever shifting skin.
Shift the balance. Center yourself.
