Vitiligo & Mental Health with Ash Rathod Manup? [Video]

Vitiligo & Mental Health with Ash Rathod Manup?

When my skin changed colour, I tried everything.

I’ve not told a lot of people this.

But I was so desperate to get back to the man I used to be.

From steroid creams to sitting in a dark room, on my own for hours, shining a UV light on my skin. I hoped the articles I’d read online would reverse my vitiligo.

Sadly, no treatment worked.

Then one day I visited a skin camouflage clinic. I’d been on the waiting list for months so even though it was a 1.5-hour trip from my house, it was worth the drive.
As soon as I got there, a lovely lady greeted me and asked me to take a seat that was so comfortable, it felt like hope.
She mixed a brown palette of makeup to match my natural skin tones. As soon as I saw one I was happy with she applied it to my skin.
As soon as she was done I thanked her and off I was. I raced back to my car and started my journey home.
Typically there was a lot of traffic on the way back. But I was OK sitting in it. It gave me lots of opportunities to turn the rear view mirror to face me so I could admire my newly painted face. I was excited to see the smile on my wife’s face.
But when I got home, my wife’s reaction wasn’t what I expected.
She stood there for a moment which must have felt like an eternity then gently shook her head. “Ash, this isn’t you. You were fine just the way you were.”
Her words hit me. I didn’t cry but I swear there was something in my eye. That was the ‘treatment’ I was searching for all along.
I see personal branding in the exact same way. We sometimes try to be a version we THINK people want to see.
But in reality, you’re fine. Just the way you are.

The post above is a copy and paste of Ash’s original post. We felt that we didn’t need to add much because well, he’s nailed the content of the video.

MANUP? is a mental health charity that’s based in the UK. We do things differently, rather than telling men to ‘get help’ because they tend to ignore it… We speak to men like men to highlight how they deal with whatever issue or problem.
