I look contagious but I’m not. How do I tell people this? How do I get them to stop staring and stop being afraid they’ll catch my uncatchable condition?

I don’t know, unfortunately. Do any of y’all have strategies for dealing with this?

My answer even now is cover up. That’s all I can do. I wish there was a better solution, sorry. If anyone has one, I’d love it.

(I’m also chiming in that wearing a t-shirt with my condition on it is highly uncomfortable and just not feasible.)

What do you mean by cover up? Do you mean like, wearing a lot of clothing? Or something else?
