Thank you for sharing this honest from the heart story. I must confess when looking through pictures, I do glance at myself and then I "wince." I feel it's more of a "human instinct" than vanity myself, but...your words ring true.

Well written, and right on topic, great job.

Great ending, good message.

I loved your story! I so remember those trolls of my youth, and your words painted the perfect picture. Well done!
This is a powerful story. I can totally relate. I hated my odd red hair as a kid. And since becoming sick, I doubled my weight and try to avoid being in a picture or even looking in the mirror. You reminded me of something important and it really struck a note with me. Congratulations on ranking 3rd in your level and 14 overall. The highest rankings can be found on the message boards.
