I have had this condition since age 5. I still struggle sometimes... with feelings of shame and self esteem..I have come a very long way towards a positive outlook. I was tormented by others as a Child and as an Adult because of this condtion.People can and have been very cruel to me.. I have always worn a wig even at age 5 when my parents sent me to Kindergarten with one on. That one action has left a strong imprint to be ashamed of who I am.... I have and still am learning to accept and love myself and to grow Spiritually!
