I was born with partial sight in right eye and a twisted face. I looked as though I'd had a stroke. For 62 years I have suffered bullying, teasing and prejudice but have never let it stop me from living life although it left me with poor self confidence and self esteem issues. Now I am 62, retired and am dreading my three grandchildren asking me the same questions I have been asked all my life. Already my three year old granddaughter cannot understand why I can't close my right eye properly and I am dreading the fact that they may notice people staring at me. My dream is to have enough money to have surgery to straighten my face out a little and maybe have a glass eye fitted as I am always getting ulcers in my eye. I was born the 13th child and all my siblings are beautiful or handsome people yet I have never asked 'why me'. As difficult as it has been to live with I am just very grateful that my grandchildren are all beautiful.
