A farmer's son is teased for his looks as well as for living on the farm.

Milton G. Eddeson is my name, and I am seventeen years old.  I live on a farm here in Ames, Iowa, with my mom, pop, and little brother, Haney, who's nine--and autistic.

My mom and pop are pig farmers.  Basically, that means they raise pigs for meat; it's our source of income.  Now, we don't have a lot of of money, but we do have a lot of love in our home.

Homelife is good; it's when I step outside the home where life takes a dramatic downturn.

Y'see, besides my little brother's problems, I have my own set of problems that make me stand out.  I am facially disfigured; have Apert's syndrome, and I am not much to look at.  People make fun of my face, and the fact that I'm a farmer's kid.

They call me names like "Ugly", "Pig-Boy" (the most common), "Porky" (another popular choice), or even worse, names with curse words attached to them.  Don't want to go into it, but it's bad, it's really bad.  Sometimes the teasing's so bad I want to hide somewhere, and never come out again. 

There's been days where I've gotten sick to my stomach, even to the point of throwing up; and at times I have come home in tears.  Now, I know I'm a big, strapping teenage boy, but when kids tease me constantly, it eats at my conscience, and it makes me feel like a total loser, like I'm not even worth anything.

It's always the good-looking, "beautiful" rich kids who do the worst of the teasing.  None of the uglier kids or the misfits ever do the teasing; it's always the snobs, the athletes, the smart ones who should know better.

It's getting to the point where I don't even want to go to school. 

I'm really looking forward to Christmas break; we will have two weeks off, and I won't even have to worry about the bad kids picking on me.  I can concentrate on finishing my Christmas shopping for the family and doing whatever I want.

Well, I am going to go.  Time to head on to my next class.  History.  Ugh.  I HATE History class!!  I will write in here again; until later, this is Milton signing out of here.  Take care and God bless!

~Milton G. Eddeson (aka "Pig-Boy"). :(

Children need to try to place themsleves in the shoes of the person they are tormenting, maybe then they would think twice about teasing

I couldn't resist, the title alone says it all. As I always say, such are the ways of ignorant people, they are sad, really sad

Perhaps there are life's lessons to take as we dismiss the barbs of ignoramuses. An honest work should not be ashamed of anything.

Sad but people do make fun if and fear that which they do not understand.

Hello Karen,

How sad for this poor young man. And he's so right about the so called "beautiful people" teasing. I guess your story really got to me in the first line, about his autistic sibling, as I have just found out my granddaughter is autistic. Anyway, Karen, this is another beautiful, touching, and tear jerking writes. You have so much talent.

Sad, the cruelty of others: very well penned, Karen.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
