Yes it has.  I more than likely would have gone to college and gotten a job I loved.  I would say it more than likely would have been something with engineering.

i can understand acne plays games but its basically ur mind thats the player.

my brother has bad acne but is still in engineering college.and trust me darling no office or no workplace in the whole bloody world would care if u had acne.

the big names from the multinational companies wouldn't care a bit about how the workers skin is ,provided he/she knows their job.

 

one of cousin has bad acne,he's still so beautiful - both physically and as a person.he's at such a great post at one of the leading banks in our country.

she swaps work at his own whim ,he's that good at his work..all with acne.

there are so many people in my country - i myself know or have seen so many with acne but getting through engineering(or any other course) entrance exam,study or campus-ing(viva sessions) have never been effected by skin or even looks.all that matters is if u're confident and if u're able as well as more or less presentable.

 

good luck with whatever u do.

but the key is to never ever let ur skin get in the way.

see,i can understand personal and social life may get effected but career..nothing can effect that ur career,ur ambition provided u r good at what u do.be it studies or any skill oriented field.

even actresses have bad times or bad days - u'd want to check out cameron diaz.

i know a few tv actresses in my country but not many people would know them.

I absolutely hated school more than anything because I got picked on constantly.  I skipped many days of school and eventually dropped out because it took such a toll on me over 5-6 years.  I feel if I actually had something to work for at the time I probably would have stuck with it, but I didn't have any ideas for a career at the time.  I wish I didn't let other people control me that much, but at the time it felt like the only option I had.

 

While my job isn't what I love it has really helped me in social situations and has forced me to interact with people.  Now if I could use some of the knowledge and actually ask a girl out on a date I'd be getting somewhere.  I have gotten really bad in that area as I went on some dates between 20-22 and I am now 27 but haven't been on a date since.  I felt in those years things were different because these girls were apart of my job and I would talk to them all the time.  Now that I don't really NEED to talk to most people with my current job I avoid almost all females, or if I don't it's just a "hi" and nothing else because I have nothing to say and don't feel like they're interested.  I need to gain some serious confidence in myself.

I actually grew up wanting to become a model (not like a pornstar or anything lol) since I was a little girl. I actually got asked by a few people who are in the modelling business to sign with them..but when I had severe acne, it tore me apart and stopped me from that. Now my acne has gotten much better but there's still a part of me that's scared, you know? Has acne stopped you from any long term goals you had?

 

I've read quite a few of your posts and I must say that you have an amazing attitude about pretty much everything and even though I don't know you, I get a strong sense that you could triumph if you went for it with everything you had!  I think you should go for it and give us all hope through your success! smile.png

 

 

Acne has 'held me back' in terms of how it's effected my self-image, self-esteem and self-confidence - which has impacted me socially because I'm not as confident as I want to be and it's hard for me to improve on that when my skin isn't exactly doing well...

 

Do I ever know what you mean here! sad.png  It's like being stuck in an endless pit of depression.  You don't want to be there and you're desperate to get out, but there's nothing to grab hold of!  Beyond frustrating!

 

 

Acne definitely hasn't stopped me from achieving my 'career' goals, which mostly involve writing, research and teaching. Like many others, it has prevented me from approaching women and forming a relationship. I think acne has also stopped me from travelling as much as I would have liked - though I did visit Rome recently, which was one of my goals.

 

This resonates profoundly!  I have always clung to my career goals as the one thing I could achieve, despite appearances and other issues that arose in life.  Higher education has been both a distraction as well as something I genuinely enjoyed.  The funny/depressing thing is that even though I am doing what I want to do (living abroad, poised to begin my PhD this autumn), the lack of satisfaction in my personal life and the depression caused by acne has stopped me from really enjoying this or feeling proud of myself.  I'm hoping this is temporary.  I feel constantly guilty that everyone is happy for me and I don't feel happy at all.  Very irritating!

 

Travel is so, so, so hard with acne!  I used to go places all the time before I developed it, but now the thought of popping out somewhere nice for a long weekend is just terrifying.  And I love to travel.  Now that, I think, is what really makes acne evil—that it makes us afraid to do things we love, or makes us lose our love of those things.  I am so glad you were able to see Rome (I was, too!) and I hope you will see many, many more places and be able to enjoy the experience! smile.png

Definitely interferes with my social life these days, and when I was a teenager it prevented any sort of social life at all, I couldn't form relationships. Acne robbed me of my youth, have tried to make up for it now but it's not the same. Plus I do still have a skin problem, it's never gone away completely and I also now have a few pock marks too which is depressing. Oh and yeah I also wanted to be a model, apart from my skin I am attractive and I hate that modelling was never an option for me. Although these days everything's airbrushed anyway so I can't see how acne would even matter now.

Simple answer, no.  I went to school everyday and I was rarely absent (even during bad breakouts).  I finished college with over 70 credits and I recently got accepted to UMass university which I am excited.  I am 100% clear now, so I will be able to focus entirely on my career without any worries. I remember my skin went at its worst last year in the middle of the semester. Consequently, I didn't get the grade I want.

 

I will admit that acne prevented me from socializing. I am glad actually, that I have prevented people. Maybe I would be a different person.

Acne hasn't stopped me from my goals but it makes getting there less fun.  Since i am so preoccupied with my skin, the experience is not as carefree as i'd like it to be.  Wishing that all of us can get out of this physical and mental anquish soon.

yes because i have become relegated to working with my hands doing manual labor in a type of job i absolutely hate and probably a job that made my acne even worse. 

 

my goal right now it trying to regain some sense of normalcy. im afraid i will never feel that again.

School-wise and my aspirations for a career have not been hampered.

 

BUT it has created a lot of social anxiety for me. I don't look people in the eyes, especially males. I would never ever ever approach a man I found appealing, to simply start a conversation.

 

When I drink and feel more at ease about it, but am working hard to change that habit. Sadly, I have actually been on the brink of potential relationships with a few really good guys but have let my anxiety (as a whole, not just my acne/scars) and overanylizations push me away completely.

 

All of these stem from my divorce too. I was marries from 22 to 26 and it was my only relationship. I don;t know how to be around guys without drinking to calm my nerves. I assume all males are repulsed by me and on top of that I HATE awkwardness to a point that I avoid certain situations in the off chance it'll go that route.

I am working on changing these habits and terrible assumptions.

Also - girls (and guys for that matter) do you hate how with acne, you cannot be spontaneous with anything?

 

If I am invited out I require a few hours notice so I can get myself looking presentable, this is the case even if someone just comes to visit me at home.

 

If a friend called me up to say they would be round in 10 minutes to drop something to me I would be filled with panic. Or if my husband decides to randomly call a neighbour up and invite them to dinner if we make more food that we expected it would fill me with dread and make me freak out. In fact, all that stuff has actually happened!

 

It is the absolute pits, feeling like you are forced to wear make up in front of people to prevent comments about your skin. Hate feeling so trapped, I don't even like wearing make up, would go without it as often as possible if I had nice skin. 

 

This state of mind has prevented me from doing a lot, who knows - if my skin had never been affected with acne perhaps I'd have gone round the world backpacking, but I need some sort of concrete plan that I'm in control of when it comes to leisure activities.

I guess I've always been sort of hesitant and anxious my whole life! I've never really known FOR SURE what I'm supposed to do .. it always seems that with other people they just know what they want to do in life and they have these *concrete goals* .. and I've always sort of drifted around .. it feels like I'm deficient or something, not having that motivation to go out and do big things.

 

Acne has definitely held me back though. The biggest way I can think of is that during high school, I had terrible cystic acne that was so hard to cover with makeup that I was late nearly every day because I kept trying to get it "perfect" which was impossible. I would cry in front of the mirror so often .. I felt like a monster. I was already clinically depressed and it just made things worse. I would skip days when it was really bad, and eventually I just stopped going altogether. I dropped out and never even got my GED. Looking back I know I should have just finished .. on the other hand jobs are so terrible here that I don't think it matters. Everyone I work with got their diploma and yet we're all working the same sort of job!

 

When I was on accutane I did have really clear skin and things were great. I didn't feel nervous going out with friends and felt pretty confident most of the time. But my social anxiety (unrelated to skin issues) crept back in and I don't really go out anymore. My acne has come back again too. But I'm dealing with it. I have ideas about getting into a real "career" .. but I'm just not sure what is right for me. I'm fascinated by dermatology and nutrition but those are fields that take enormous amounts of time and money to get into.

 

I'm really lucky because I have a husband who loves me and doesn't care about my zits. He keeps me motivated to keep working and getting out there and I do it because I love him and want to help him. My biggest goal right now is to earn and save enough money (I'm almost there!) to go ahead and have a baby. I want to be a mother and acne certainly won't stop me from doing that. :)

may be because they are actresses.ideally actresses shouldnt have anything to do with looks but i'll admit it is a 'look oriented field'!

 

but then most there are more than looks.could be acting skills or in some cases personality / panache / source / PR skills(which is a skill btw) / smartness!

Well as Shobha De' has said in her book "Selective memories", The celebrity field in India and all over the world is dominated by looks.Even in sports where impetus is on skills,the better looking celebrities get the lion's share of the cake.P.T Usha has better records any day than Ashwini Nachappa.But Ashwini always had more media attention.Same with Sunil gawaskar,Ajay Jadeja and Leander paes. Who remembers Viswanathan Anand ,when infact he is the one who is making serious moves and money! So if sports is influenced by looks and glamour,Bollywood is ONLY looks when it comes to females.Who looks for a "personality" in Katrina Kaif? Personality? What personality? For the love of God,she hardly has any speaking skills LOL

i dont know if am right but if i were to have bad acne all way long,i'd definitely carry on with my attempts to treat it but i would put in extra effort in my career because that is one thing i cant be hold back at.

i'd study harder and worker double to make it big without caring what my skin can do to me.

i'd rather do it!

shobha de is highly biased according to me.i understand that she's seen more and closer but sadly,i sorta refuse to agree with everything she says.

media attention may have a lot to with looks but no,definitely not sports.

if a sport is famous and one plays it well,he'll excel whether or not he looks great.example : yusuf pathan(he rose dint he?; did ads and stuff,dint he?)

he wont be eliminated from the team for his looks.he wont be less liked by cricket fans for his looks.

sachins voice or short height or even looks wont stop him from reaching good grounds.

vishwanathan anand is less tracked by media  because he's not someone who'd look good opening a soda bottle or dancing with firangi babes at his age.also,he doesnt get too many garlands at the airport after winning world championship because chess isnt as popular.not as much as cricket is.

ajay jadega is pretty much a lost name.although he did get approached for films and stuff but that way dint work,did it?

his cricketing status worked because he could play(for how long is secondary question).

MS dhoni is not as good looking nor is ishaant sharma(i clearly remember the craze he had after the t20 world cup a few years ago).

these names rise and fall on the basis of their games not their looks.for if it was the latter,they'd remain stars forever!

 

there is no denying that gavaskar or leander paes are really good at their games.the former gets media attention primarily for his game,he is respected world wide for his game not his looks.he's short btw.(which isnt a good trait according to media).

also,leander paes failed miserably in his 1st try in bollywood.i dnt even remember the name of that film now.

 

look is important.

in film industry(not that it ideally should be) but but but thankfully its still not the only criteria.

we still have good choices and works now and then.

 

i'll add that what works most is 'source' even more than looks.

u'd want to check out sons and daughters who neither have talent nor typical looks to carry on.

 

as for shobha de,she produces this controversial but hopeless show on [v] which is really hypocritical of her to do.with all that she says all the time about actors(including tv actors).

What i meant was that if there are two individuals with the same achievements(or less) in the same field.The visually appealing one would inevitably steal the limelight .I agree Viswanathan Anand wouldn't look good doing grotesque advertisements. Chess isn't popular ,yes. But don't you think it's unfair? For god's sake,why can't Indians be less obsessed with cricket? I mean ask a tiny 8 year old who's Sachin,his eyes would lit and he would jump and tell you.But who knows about Dhyan Chand? Who knows about Michael ferreira?For that matter what about Viswanathan Anand? He has been the undisputed FIDE world champion for 3 successive terms defeating three legendary players namely :Vladimir Kramnik (Russia),Veselin Topalov (Bulgaria),Boris Gelfand  (Israel). India has held World titles in Chess for the under 10,under 12,under 14,under 16 category! .But all Indians like is become paranoid over cricket. One stupid man named Gurunath Meiyappan who's apparently involved in match fixing and happens to be the SIL of Mr. Srinivasan,becomes the bloody headlines for a week altogether.Are the media people dim witted ducks ? Can't they forget about cricket for a while? Somdev burman battled with Roger Federer,Who cares? LOL... 

 

About Shobha de' ,yes i agree she's a bit of a cynic.

 

P.S-Our chats really do stretch to un-charted territories haha :) .People may read this and think of me as an acne snob who has contempt for cricket.Na na na,infact i'm going to play cricket now. ;)

Who knows about Michael ferreira?For that matter what about Viswanathan Anand? He has been the undisputed FIDE world champion for 3 successive terms defeating three legendary players namely :Vladimir Kramnik (Russia),Veselin Topalov (Bulgaria),Boris Gelfand  (Israel). India has held World titles in Chess for the under 10,under 12,under 14,under 16 category! .But all Indians like is become paranoid over cricket. One stupid man named Gurunath Meiyappan who's apparently involved in match fixing and happens to be the SIL of Mr. Srinivasan,becomes the bloody headlines for a week altogether.Are the media people dim witted ducks ? Can't they forget about cricket for a while? Somdev burman battled with Roger Federer,Who cares? LOL... 

 

About Shobha de' ,yes i agree she's a bit of a cynic.

 

P.S-Our chats really do stretch to un-charted territories haha smile.png .People may read this and think of me as an acne snob who has contempt for cricket.Na na na,infact i'm going to play cricket now. wink.png

match fixing should grab limelight.whether it related to cricket or not.i dnt have an issue with that.i wish they would promote other games along with the match fixing(not the over hyped game of cricket but the corruption - that will probably make some people stop from over crowding already scripted matches)

and i agree,the fate of sports other than cricket(and to a certain extent football in my state) is sad.

but that has nothing to do with acne or looks anyway.(which was our main topic of discussion).

 

thats okay actually,its good that u're into cricket but not crazily into it to become blind.

Hahaha yeah I get that a lot actually :P She's a great actress too!

The only stress I have seems to be because of my skin. Some days more stressful than others.

Yeah, I know exactly what my skin likes and what it doesn't. And it seems to LOVE patience. I've used every topical blah blah blah retin-a seemed to work well but after a while it wasn't doing much. So my derm said I should really just wait it out because that seems to be working really well for me. I also take omega 3 supplements and all that which help a lot too. But overall, when it comes to red marks, patience is all I really need. :P

It's just stressful when I think it's going well, I'm all excited, then BAM! A stupid new zit appears. Like just 2 days, a new zit in a clear area too (grr :@). But at the same time, I can see my red marks fading. So I don't know what to really feel..excited that they're going away, or annoyed at this new zit?

See what I mean when I say the stress is never ending x_x
