“The worst being called the daughter of the devil. My Dad was wonderful at handling it. He simply told me that he was the devil & anyone who called me that in a negative way, would surely be punished & sent to hell”

 

I was born with Heterochomia. Left eye, light blue with dark blue/gray outer border. Right, green with a spot of brown & an outer gray/blue ring. As a kid, I was teased relentlessly. The worst being called the daughter of the devil. My Dad was wonderful at handling it. He simply told me that he was the devil & anyone who called me that in a negative way, would surely be punished & sent to hell. He instructed me to state, proudly, “why YESSSSSSS, I am his daughter!”I got so good of convincing my harassers of this that by high school, everyone was truly afraid to say anything to me!
As I got older, I loved having two different colored eyes. It’s a great conversation starter! And, people compliment me on them now, because they are unique.
I’m so glad to be able to connect with others who have the same condition. Thank you so much for starting the Heterochomia Project!
