Steve and Dawn Thomas rarely saw their son Brandon blush, and if they did, it wasn’t a worry.
Brandon was blond and fair, like his twin brother, Devin, and an occasional flush of color didn’t seem concerning.
“We wouldn’t have witnessed it,” said Steve Thomas. “It wasn’t even happening here at home. I think this was his place of comfort.”
So they were stunned last fall when Brandon, a friendly, well-liked University of Washington student, confessed to his mother he’d been struggling with crippling, chronic blushing for four years.
