Finally! People I can talk to

I was born with (severe) bunions and so has my mom and grandma. I was always jealous of my sisters and everyone at school that had regular feet. I'd always hide my feet with tennis shoes, I didn't even wear flip flops or sandals unless they covered my toes.

My big toe pushes all my other toes to the other side but my 2nd toe is also really long, I have a pinky toe bunion and all my toes have a bump at the "knuckle" part. I was born with such ugly feet and I've thought of surgery but I won't be able to walk for a while.

The only thing I can do is be content with my feet and just say to myself, "This is how I was born. There's nothing anyone can do about it. I love myself so I love my feet." I don't know anyone else with bunions let alone born with them.
