Michael001001 replied to rez's topic in Emotional and psychological effects of acneNot only I have acne (and acne scars) for the past 16 years, I have also scars on my cheeks from a accident when I was a kid. I didn't get much direct insults but I had a lot of stare down once they realise how badly dmg my skin is. They are not even subtle. As a teenager, I had things like: *your handsome but then ugly*. Or, *you're good looking from the distance*. it's like, I catch there eyes and 2 sec later I repulse them. Awful feeling. Result, as a adult, I'm a complete mess. I'm done with life.
