Dear kind and wise people. I am posting this in a spirit of absolute honesty so please excuse any ranting or stuff that doesn’t make sense. My exquisite daughter of 11 has been diagnosed with vitiligo and I am heart broken. At the moment it is not very noticeable but it is spreading and I am so so scared for her happiness. I feel as though I am not coping at all. I dread to think what other surprises her immune system may have in store for her and am despairing that she may lose her confidence or think herself ugly.
I am hiding these thougjtsnfromher of course but don’t know if I’ve ever felt so low. Even when I was down after getting very ill two years again it was always out of fear that I would not be able to help my children.
The future looks unbearable today and has done since the doc confirmed my fears.
