Mom Paints Large Birthmark on Her Face to Match Son: 'I Have Never Treated Him as Different'

One Brazilian mom is making sure her 13-month-old son Enzo — who was born with a large birthmark on his face — knows that she’s his number one supporter.

Enzo was born via c-section last March after it was revealed his umbilical cord was wrapped around his neck twice, his mom Carolina Giraldelli, 26, of Cáceres, Brazil, told SWNS.

Surgery later revealed that Enzo’s birthmark was a harmless Congenital Melanocytic Nevus, which can form in the womb early in development, according to the Association for Large Nevi and Related Disorders.

The moment sparked something for Giraldelli, who told SWNS she saw the birthmark and decided “from then on I should become another person who was much stronger, fearless, brave, and ready to face all the obstacles that would now be presented to my son.”

Recently, Giraldelli had a makeup artist paint a birthmark on her face that was nearly identical to the baby boy’s, according to SWNS. Then, the mom turned the camera on to capture the moment her son saw her.

“I confess that for some time it was very difficult to see and feel the eyes of society flickering my son with looks of pity, contempt, scare [fear] and sometimes disgust,” Giradelli told SWNS.

And although it’s not easy, she added to the U.K. news wire that she and her husband, João Renato Cestari, “act normally” and that “if someone feels revulsion, curiosity or fear, we try to make him understand that he, despite his mark, is a normal boy who is much loved, just like others.”

In the video, Giraldelli greeted her son, whose face immediately lit up with a smile. And while she told SWNS “he did not completely understand it,” the little boy still showed her “complete joy.”

“I’m sure he loved my attitude. We took lots of pictures and our morning was a lot of fun,” she told SWNS. “After the photos I went to work with the makeup on.”

Although Giraldelli took the makeup off before she went to bed, she told the outlet, “How I felt has stayed with me ever since.”

Hair Pulling, Nail Biting, Skin Peeling and Biting

All my life I’ve bitten my nails. It’s caused me a lot of trouble, especially with my bipolar mother who has always thought screaming and shouting at me (and often a smack when I was younger) would make me stop.At around 7 I also started biting and peeling the skin on my fingers which has caused a lot of social and health issues for me from being to ashamed to join in with prayers at school, to getting my fingers getting a fungal infection causing long lasting damage to my fingers.Soon after I started to pull out the tiny hairs on my legs during school assembles and by 12 I began to pull my eyebrow hair out.How can I stop doing this to myself? I don’t even realise I’m doing it half the time (I started biting the skin around my fingers just writing this and caused it to bleed a little). I’m afraid to bring this up with my parents because of how they have reacted in the past and I’m far too embarrassed to ask anyone I would typically trust. It has severally impacted how I interact with …

Painful Memories Evoke More Intense Emotions in Those With Depression

People with major depressive disorder (MDD) experience more intense negative emotions while recalling painful memories compared to non-depressed people, according to a new study published in the journal Biological Psychiatry: Cognitive Neuroscience and Neuroimaging.And although those with MDD were able to turn down their negative emotions about as well as non-depressed people, they used different brain circuits to do so.The new findings pinpoint brain differences in MDD associated with the processing of autobiographical memories — one’s memories of personal events and knowledge of one’s life — that help us develop our sense of self and guide our interactions with the world around us.“This study provides new insights into the changes in brain function that are present in major depression,” said journal editor Cameron Carter, M.D. “It shows differences in how memory systems are engaged during emotion processing in depression and how people with the disorder must regulate these systems i…
