18+ years of my life has been with Vitiligo. I have been through N number of treatments, academic failures, rejections and a tragic loss. Undoubtedly I was in depression and at one point, felt completely lonely. My parents have always been a constant lifeline and my sibling was my best friend and support system. When I started respecting myself and taking care of myself, I noticed that my life started changing. One of the treatments worked partially for me. Academically, I improved drastically and was a rank holder. I am an engineer by qualification, worked for the I.T. and was an active volunteer for 4.5+ Years. I have some really genuine friends and colleagues who carry similar understanding towards life. I changed my career line and currently working for an NGO, full-time. I personally drive SupportVitiligo, aiming at sensitising people about Vitiligo and supporting people with Vitiligo. Though mine was an arranged marriage, we both made sure we chose each other first. Our journeys are different and are also similar in some ways. Before knowing me, he never knew much about Vitiligo. Our mindsets were similar to an extent and gradually we were comfortable in each other’s company. We have been married for 1.5+ years now. We both are working. We both stand by what we believe in and we support each other accordingly. He doesn’t have any skin condition and really understands. I am glad that he is my husband and yes he is a bit lucky, coz I am his Wife. TouchWood.
