Most Helpful Girl
I’m an introvert. I rarely look people in the face unless they get my attention first either by talking or I notice something about them that catches my interest. The same happened between my husband and myself when we first met, except I noticed his hands... which are covered in vitiligo. Then I noticed his nerdy Doctor Who bracelet. I decided to look up and his face was gorgeous. He has vitiligo around one eye and part of his lips; and has white hair scattered through his eyebrow, hair, and goatee on the same side. Vitiligo is on his arms and legs and on his penis. We make jokes about his penis ranging from the British pudding “spotted dick” to naming him it dog names because... SPOT. Just as he loves kissing my freckles, I love kissing his vitiligo spots.
I find it spreading and remind him to use sunscreen. I know it’s an autoimmune disorder, so I watch him for other autoimmune issues. I’ve noticed he seems to have psoriatic issues recently where the vitiligo is and doesn’t get sun (on poor Spot).

I’ve seen some really hot people with vitiligo. I think the reality is people who are affected by it automatically think they are unnatractive. Especially if you grew up with it, so of course all the kids are gonna treat you like shit about it until you’re an adult and enter the real world.
Then because you were abused about it your whole life you’re depressed and self loathing and you feel like everyone is looking at you funny and judging you.
