I was literally in tears when reading the hollistic section with all all thes people claiming acne is caused by bad diet and if you eat vegan it will be cured. I have been yelled at for this my entire life! people would come up on the street and ignorantly tell me to my face that my diet must be horrible when in reality that couldn't be farther from the truth. It just brings back awful memories.
I posted here the other day telling my story and half the replies were like "It's something in your diet, you're allergic to something" - these F*cking idiots, they have no idea how many times I was hospitalized as a teenager and adult for anorexia due to fear out of eating anything that I was told caused acne. I ate nothing but spinach for a year and had terrible cystic acne all over my body regardless.
This website just upsets me. It seems the finger of blame keeps getting pointed in your direction for having acne on here. They're like.. maybe it's your diet? your environment? your stress level? your toothpaste? the water you shower with? - do these idiots not understand acne is a hormonal disease? (no that doesn't mean imbalance) and it's pretty much out of your control.
I just needed to vent on this. People come here for emotional support and instead they get told off. I just think it's ridiculous.
