My whole teen years, acne has been here. It has never gone, it has only gotten worse. My teen years have been dramatically ruined by it and now my early adult-hood is going to be ruined by it too, i'm tired of it and don't know what to do anymore, it's so sad and i just don't get why it won't go, i have had my fair share i think but that isn't enough, it's just getting worse.

I know this feeling exactly. I feel like I've dealt with so much sh*t, it's like what else can we possibly add into the heaping pile that I already have to deal with?? You just have to hold onto hope. As long as there is hope, there is a reason to exist. Without that, life would look like one giant black hole. I've been in that position (and still struggle with those thoughts), but when I grasp onto any inkling of a thought that tomorrow will be better, it makes things a little bit easier. Each day is a new day, and even if tomorrow sucks just as bad as today does, there's always another tomorrow. As long as I tell myself "Tomorrow will be better". I have something to hold onto. Right now, I'm really at rock bottom. But, the good news is I can only go up from here if I choose to. Don't let your life slip away because of a problem that we really don't have control over. That's just a waste of time and energy that can be spent on making wonderful memories and living life to the fullest!

I'd say it ruined my social life in my Freshman/Sophomore years of HS, but I'm a Junior now and I'm going to just practice being confident and keep on truckin'.

As much I want to say it ruined this and that in my life, it was there because if it wasn't , there would have been no appreciation. It had to teach me to love myself, to find myself, then create who I want to be (which I'm still doing at 34), and it forced me to explore my passions and develop and understanding for things most people don't understand.

So far, yes. But I've been learning to forget about it and just enjoy the last of my teen years

Regardless of whether I have acne or not because

I've learned that it is just holding me back in life.

I obviously have a severe case of acne, but I'm not letting that stop me.

Hoping for better days~
