I’m not angry at my disease anymore, or the hand I was dealt. But I am angry that in our society, it’s acceptable to say mean things about other people’s appearance, especially to their face. It’s not right.
Writer (and tumblr!) Kelly Bergin tells us about her own “puffy-face” saga, after four years on the highly toxic steroid prednisone, and says guys, just stop it with saying mean things about how other people look. It’s a great piece. (And it brought her her first hate-tweet, because people are mean. Sorry about that, Kelly!) Send her some love, tumblr!
