Today, a flight attendant asked me if I was airsick because I looked really pale. I told her that was my normal complexion but thanked her for her concern. She insisted "No, that can't be normal." FML

A doctor once told me that I was sickly pale and probably had something seriously wrong with me. She wouldn't believe me when I told her it was my natural skin tone. My neighbor also once told my mom that she thought I had leukemia. She didn't understand that I bruise easily just because I'm pale.

I prefer my skin without sun damage, thank you. (I'm ludicrously pale as well)

Maybe you're anemic. I am. I'm also pale and bruise easily.

Go Outside you emo's. There's your problem.

I'm so pale that in my driver's license photo my skin blends into my white top and the flash bounced off me like snow glare. It looks like a fake ID.

my mom thinks I have something wrong because my skintone is paler than the natural ivory makeup that loreal makes :/

She probably just got upset because she knows her skin is going to look like a dried out carcass when she is 40

Reading the story and these comments... it seems to be only female medical staff making these misdiagnoses. Hmmmmmmmmmm......

LMAO, SAME THING HAPPENED TO ME!! Naturally pale...

I'm pale too. If I don't wear makeup, people ask me either who died or why I've been crying. UGH. I figure that when I'm 40, I'll look great because I didn't tan myself into a crispy leather hide like all the other girls do. Pale IS the new tan!

I can totally feel you. I'm sick and went to school and everyone turned to me and went "Wow...I didn't think it was possible but, your even MORE pale! And man...That's pale" My nickname: ghost. Plus I sort of glow in the dark. Haha
