Growing up, I didn’t go to the doctor. If the bone is broken, you go to the doctor; If you’re bleeding profusely, you go to the doctor; Otherwise—castor oil, water, bandages, and Vaseline. If something was wrong, you dealt with it silently.
Ostracized Due to My Skin
I grew up in a small town in Michigan. My skin was always something that separated me from others. I didn’t mind being the darkest skin tone in the classroom. But the itchy, flaky, red, and–did I mention itchy—sores that covered my neck, elbows, arm creases, and behind my knees were hard to deal with.
They would itch, and I would scratch until my skin bled. — PSYCHE TERRY
