I’ve always had a love-hate relationship with my birthmark, also called a “port-wine stain”. It’s the one thing that makes me different and sets me apart from others, but it is also the reason behind all the questions and stares. I was given the opportunity to get it removed, but deciding on whether to do so was actually pretty tough. These large red patches have been a part of me since I was born, and I can’t help but feel like a ‘sell-out’ or ‘cheater’ by getting it removed. But after thinking about it and talking it over with my mom, I decided to go ahead with the treatment.
