World Scleroderma Day, 2019
It is June 29 and it is World Scleroderma Day. This is one rare condition that really breaks my heart each time I have to look or discuss it. Its disfiguring nature is just sad, yet the likes of my beautiful warrior here, Sara keeping pushing and winning with it in the midst of all pains, restrictions and more.
Scleroderma refers to a range of disorders in which the skin and connective tissues tighten and harden. It is a long-term, progressive disease. This means it gradually gets worse.
I will leave it here now so you can hear directly from Sara Jato, the founder and Executive Director of Me and Sclero Foundation Africa
Remember, I be your Enhancer… And you be my Doer…

People with albinism face multiple forms of discrimination worldwide. Albinism is still profoundly misunderstood, socially and medically. The physical appearance of persons with albinism is often the object of erroneous beliefs and myths influenced by superstition, which foster their marginalization and social exclusion. This leads to various forms of stigma and discrimination.
In some communities, erroneous beliefs and myths, heavily influenced by superstition, put the security and lives of persons with albinism at constant risk. These beliefs and myths are centuries old and are present in cultural attitudes and practices around the world. - UN
And today, I join The Albino Foundation TAF whose VISION is - “The Albino Foundation envisions a society with equal opportunity for Persons with Albinism” to celebrate the International Albinism Awareness Day.
Standing Strong and winning with you all with our Looks!
Have you ever had suicidal thoughts possibly because of your Looks, Physical Appearance, Facial disfigurement, or just any other form of Visible Disfigurement and Body-Image issues?
Maybe due to panic attacks, anxiety, depression and or some mental health challenges? Have you been blamed or called vain, because your are not at peace with your Looks? Have you been able to access and get true help? Do you feel better?
I want you to understand one thing, irrespective of what anyone thinks, you are very good to me and a host of others walking this journey together, please trying to be accepted by others who do not have the tiniest idea what you are dealing with. Stay away from them for your sanity, peace and progress, they are so many around us and no matter what they say, if you see or perceive contrary actions, they are not your circle.
Truly, it is very ok to feel 'ugly' when certain situations happen, just don't park, build and live in with that thought. It is very ok, not to want the way you look, no it doesn't make you a sinner or worldly person. The truth is that you,. not liking your acne scar os no different from the other (maybe a celebrity) who got a scar on her face. Do not feel less, especially when they try to make you feel so, you do not need them for the sake of your mental health.
