I Wish People Understood The Pain Acne Causes.

Posted by jessikur55, 17 June 2013 · 988 views

People look at me and think that I'm careless and dirty because I have acne. No one knows what I've been through with acne. It's the worst thing that's ever happened to me. If I could, I would get rid of it. I can only dream of having clear skin.
I wish guys would notice me. They see my acne, not the person I am. I haven't been in a relationship in two years. My ex boyfriend never loved me. It's like this acne defines me. It doesn't. But people just can't see past it.
I didn't choose the acne life, it chose me. I would give anything to get rid of acne. People make fun of me, guys say they can't date a girl with acne, and there are seriously no doctors that want to help me. People tell me to go on accutane. As if I'm already not dying to have it. I would do anything to finally take accutane. All the doctors in my area say they'll help me, but in the end they don't and they keep giving me Doxycycline and Minocycline. Fuck that. Give me something new, I say, and they always say no.




You've probably heard this before but you should try and focus on the positive and be thankful that the biggest problem in your life is a cosmetic one. With that said, I know how debilitating it can be to look in the mirror and hate what you see. You're still very young and it will get better eventually, just don't give up and things will work out. There has to be a dermatologist around you that will prescribe accutane, keep going for consultations and be insistent about wanting it. Good luck with everything, I really hope it works out for you.

I hear ya.  Ignorance in regards to acne is very rampant.  People in my life know better than to bring it up and i havent had much comments from strangers.  i find that sometimes you have to get up and go even when acne says you're not good enough to face the day.  You are not your acne.....let me repeat....you are not your acne!  You will meet someone who can accept it but first you have to accept it.  I struggle with this on a daily basis too.  Have you tried the acne.org Regimen?  I tried accutane and it was not my holy grail.  The Regimen has helped me lots but i still struggle (i'm only 2 months in).  It's definitely worth a shot.

I feel like I'm missing out on life because of acne. I can't really go swimming because I can't wear makeup there. I don't like meeting new people anymore because I don't want them to comment on my face. Its killing me.

No, there aren't any dermatologists that take my health insurance or that want to help me. The last one I saw just offered me birth control like crazy until I stopped seeing him. All he ever asked was if I was sexually active and if I wanted birth control. One day, he did offer accutane but then said no. :/

Its hard to meet people who understand me because it seems like I'm the only one suffering from this. None of my friends have acne, I RARELY see someone with any acne in my area. Guys have straight up told me they would date me if I had a pretty face. I don't. I never will. No one seems to want to even give me a chance. I gave up on ever finding anyone. I don't have a well paying job like I used to so I can't realy buy the Regimen. The one I'm currently on is cheaper and my parents can buy it for me. So yeah.

" Guys have straight up told me they would date me if I had a pretty face. I don't. I never will. No one seems to want to even give me a chance. I gave up on ever finding anyone. I don't have a well paying job like I used to so I can't realy buy the Regimen."

 

 

you shouldn't be attracted to someone who can say that they'd like/love you for who you are if and only if you changed X and Y. I shouldn't have to feel compelled to please someone for them to see who I really am - past the acne,makeup and all those superficial things.

 

give yourself more credit and know that you deserve someone who can see and value you for who you are. sounds a bit out there but it's true, I stand by it. 

 

I saved up for my skincare products (the regimen). I work in retail and make peasant pay but it just takes a bit of will power to save up. now that I know the regimen works for me so I invest in the larger bottles since its much more cost efficient in the long run.

 

 

anyway, chin up! don't beat yourself down~

Yes yes yes. But it seems like everyone around me thinks beauty is on the outside. I liked a guy for a while and he showed signs of liking me back and when I asked why I wasn't datable, he pointed at my face. :/ Broke my heart.

I'm hoping to change my regime soon. I'm ready to try something new. Especially seeing the huge red zit on my left cheek that's killing me. Go awaaaay, zit. Take the scars and the others with you.

"But it seems like everyone around me thinks beauty is on the outside. "

 

I hate to assume but I'm guessing the people you tend to run into are immature to the max. Best thing to do is ignore them because all they'll do is prevent you from seeing your worth. They don't matter, truly they don't.

looks like you were spared from dating this complete tool. hearing a guy or anyone do something like that is such a turn-off. so inconsiderate, I'm usually not a spiteful person but I hope karma gets him back sooner or later.

I understand you .. people are so mean .. and it does not matter how old they are .. at any age they are just rude .. you would think older people would be more understanding and nicer... I work as a server in a restaurant and I get comments by old people like u should see a doctor for ur skin..  try washing ur face more .. try proactive .. really I have seen 5 doctors  already and have tried so many products  just waisted my money ..  if it was that easy to get rid off by just washing ur face none of us would spend thousands of dollars on doctors .. people are just ignorant and rude ...

 

I have just started taking 1 tablet of alpha lipoic acid 200mg and 2 tablets of acidophilus is a probiotic a day for  two weeks and I think is working ... I read some reviews here on them and people say it worked on their acne .. its only been 2 weeks but I just had my period and did not break out as much ... hopefully in a month I will see more improvements ..   I also saw good comments on saw plametto I going to buy some tomorrow and give that a try also you can buy it at walgreens so their not hard to find

My grandma is the worst old person to ever comment on my face. She tells everyone I'm her favorite grandchild, but I really hate her sometimes. She called me on my  birthday once, i hadn't seen my face that day because I hadn't gotten up yet, and the first thing she said was "Are you pretty yet?" I managed to save my tears after I had hung up. She's the worst. The worst part is that out of all her grandchildren, I'm the worst looking one. I have MODELS in my family for crying out loud. :( People just don't understand that this isn't something I chose for myself. If I could I'd be pretty, but that's not happening.

Plametto? Never heard of it. Let me know how that goes for you!
