Years ago, after a coworker noticed the patches of dry skin that appeared on my hands, he actually said to me, “You’re a pretty girl, but your skin is ugly.” I don’t consider my skin ugly. It’s different, unique, and yes, sometimes a little uncomfortable. Ugly is not an adjective I like to use to describe my condition. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Some would say I look like a beautiful cheetah or spotted butterfly.
