Hello everyone.

The title of my post says it all. Sorry to be so dramatic, I'm just a little sad tonight. I am strong, and I will be okay though. Here's what happened...

I have Hypo-Pituitarism, and I'm 42 years old. Because of this condition, I actually look like I'm only 12 years of age. Normally, I love who I am, and accept myself completely. But every once in a while, I run into somebody shallow enough to insult me, or criticize me, because I do not look normal.

I've been called a kid, or a child sooo many times, that it makes my heart break. That's not the worst name in the world to be called, but I so desperately want to be treated like I'm an adult.

I work, and I am happily married. I pay my bills like anyone else, but I just look like I'm 12, and I just wanted to be treated with a little dignity and respect, Y'know... What can't people learn to see what's on the inside, instead of hating what they don't see as normal?

I've been in stores, where the sales people will just ignore me, because they think I'm just a child. I've had people who were insulting to me, because they think I wouldn't stand up for myself. When I do, they get very surprised that I'm adult...

When am I going to learn to ignore rude, shallow people? But I can't help it, it really does hurt my feelings....

I'm sorry for dumping this on you guys, but I just needed a good cry tonight... Thank you for listening to me...

T. L..
