Hi there, thank you for coming.
Majority of you will not know who I am, if any at all, as I have lived under the shadow for majority of my life.
For the majority of my life I have lived under scrutiny and prejudice for the way I look. Just walking down the street people gave me cold stares while pointing fingers like some zoo animal...
When I was very young, I was involved in a freak accident that included accidic burns to the side of my face and partially to my upper body aswell. That left me in bed recovering for many months, having nightmares of the horrific accident that once occured. My parents did everything they could to provide me medical assistance.
But there was a price to that aswell and it was not financial.
Due to my weakened skin, the medicine that I was provided with had a backlash. Within a week of medication, a full blown acne break out occured with cystic acne all over my face and upper body which still lasted till today (although with some oral medicine did reduce it a little).
Ever since then, due to my disturbing appearance I was outcasted by society... by my friends and eventually my own family members.
I even became afraid to walk down the street alone, in fear of all the eyes surrounding me.
Lately I've been locking myself in my room to escape from this dreadful nightmare...
I would even get turned down at job interviews because of the way I look, I was once even told 'Go look in the mirror before you try find a job'.
After that, I lost all meaning to my life... what am I suppose to do now...?
I am trying to change my life though, I am trying to be more positive... but unlike people who have disabilities who recieve support from friends and familes, no one even cares about me much less give me the chance to make things right in my life.
But recently, with a reccommendation from a relative who lives in Korea told me about a Doctor who may be able to help me, even if it's just a little.
But the surgery and medical fees are way beyond what I can afford, $45,000, for surgery and medical fees including flights and accommodation.
It would take a miracle for me to achieve such a goal, as no employer would even give me the chance to even try work for that money...
So I'm asking you, even if it's just $1, please help me get out of my own shadows... I want to wake up from this nightmare...!
