26 Depressed Because Of Acne- Parents Making It Worst

29 posts in this topic

I'm 16 years old and you sound a lot like how i sounded a few years back. I think you've got to realize that a lot of people without acne don't know how stressed/depressed people with this "condition" can get and how serious they take having it.

i don't get along with my parents, but a simple solution was to put a lock on my door and buy my own food. I mean that way i have my own privacy when i'm stressed and don't want to be around people. I'm living in their house so i don't really have a choice but to back down and respect them to a certain extent. I just think maybe you should stop worrying about what your parents are doing and focus on yourself and getting clear. I know you've said you're trying to do that but they keep interfering, so maybe have a chat with them and ask if a few changes can be made.

I always used to say " i will start taking my studies serious once i'm clear and happy" That day is yet to come, and that is probably why my grammar sucks tongue.png

Your parents have probably gotten used to seeing you with acne that they probablly dont even realize how much this shit pounds with pain from within you. I understand you dude I work and go to college and each day is motherfucking struggle just to leave the front door, I constantly think of just saying fuck this shit and dropping out and quiting work and go live under a bridge for the rest of life. I can't stand being around stupid ass immature people, which nowadays seems to be everybody around the fucking corner, they make me want to pound my face through a brick wall.

I have a lot of sympathy for the OP in this thread and I think some of the replies haven't really tried to explore the OP's psychological state of mind at all, which seems to be the key issue to his present situation. It is extremely simplistic to ask the OP to simply accept 'adult' responsibilities and move out/ get his own apartment if he is struggling with psychological issues that are preventing him from doing so. Judging by the OP's responses, it's obvious he is extremely anxious about the state of his skin and this is having a negative impact on his life choices. OP, I would suggest that you seek out advice from a counselor/ psychotherapist who might be able to help you get to the key issue of the anxiety that you are currently feeling. I do recognise that acne has played a large role in determining the way you are feeling right now, but it also sounds like those original feelings about your skin have evolved into something that might be more akin to depression/ onset anxiety and if that is the case then that can be treated with SSRI's and psychotherapy

This forum is one of support and we should all try and remember that acne is a complex phenomenon that can influence a person's life beyond physical boundaries and It is not constructive to offer advice in terms of crude absolutes such as 'you need to move out now' etc.

No one said he has to move out now. I said he has to move out OR accept his current situation for what it is.
