Hve You Ever Come Close To Suicide

50 posts in this topic

Money is everything, money can buy happiness, you just have to know how to use it. Money would allow me fixing my health issues, between other things, and living a normal life, which would make me happy. I start more and more to think that most people in here have mild forms of acne/scars, if they can give advices like you have. There is absolutely no way I will ever accept my acne as a part of myself, because it's a horrible disease, there is no way I can live a normal life in this condition. Anyone who disagrees is either lying or does not have severe acne. Period.

I'm sorry but you sound like a great big cry baby. There are much worse conditions and diseases than Acne. Try going to a therapist kid, your attitude sucks and it will only drag you down into destruction.

I thought about it . who has not really . every time I try something and have it Not work ,and realize not only did I waste my money but also feel like a failure .

getting my hopes up thinking this is it . I'm finally going to have clear skin , and just end up back in square one. I feel like I'm going in circles with my skin. have tried

all the creams , done peels , did a laser called smoothbeam tried everything out there . and yet I'm back at square one. with shitty skin. its depressing to know

you have invested all your money and time on your skin and not see any improvement and if u do is only temporarily before u find yourself back where you started..

I thought about it but deep inside I have hope that one day I will live a happy life, where I can be happy about myself , and have good skin again and just feel free ,and if I kill myself I will never get to live that moment.. I will never get that moment I have been waiting for and have fought so hard for !!!!! I guess that's what stops me from killing myself . so here I am waiting for that moment lol : )

K3tchup - this is one of the best post I've read on this site! So well said...

Thank you smile.png Its always quite late when I try to make these type of replies and I tend to ramble and end up not making sense of anything. My spelling tends mauls any inteligible thought left.

Money fix issues, you just have to know how to fix them. If you have money and get Accutane to treat your acne for example, you're doing it wrong. Love won't pay my treatment bills, nor my friends or family. Sure, I can lie to myself too and say that what's inside a person matters the most and I'm no different than others, but it's no help. The truth is that I would like to be a normal, healthy person fitting in this society and at this right moment I'm pretty much disgusting. It's obviously we have different views on things and what sever acne means, we'll just have to agree to disagree.

Money aids in fixing some of life's issues I will give you that; without money i could not have went to a doctor, therapist, been able to afford perscribed treatments, payed for nursing school, taken my nclex-heck, without money none of this would have happened. Although it was my determination, drive, and backing from a loving parent that understood my feelings that did not discourage or discount me when all others had in school or at work. In this sense I am lucky and fortunate. That is altruistic love. Love helps you heal and provides comfort where as money runs out and only creates dispare and greed. In the end you are alone. And the pain is worse than ever.

I understand your distress in that you want to be "normal" attempting to identify your role in this society and "fit in." However, do you really just want to be another one of "them" in society? Them, the on lookers that gaze upon us people who suffer with acne as being inferior to the race? I would hope you learn the many lessons there are to learn about living life on the "other side" of the looking glass. I for one am more humble and have clearer priorities than my previous days. So, you pick your self up, go to work, and inorder to support your self to fund whatever you wish to try. But you cannot put all your eggs in one basket and expect hard earned sought-after cash to help purge you of all that ails you. Because that won't happen realistically and you are putting to much emphasize on it resulting in failure, more disgust, and more money seeking behavior that becomes more important than the people that can help you in ways money cannot.

I just wish for you to see that money, although needed to accomplish many things in society does not bring you anymore closer to it or create a sense of beloning and love. You cannot truely recover or live happily and healthily in your current state. The distress and unsatification created by the cyclical action of money and acne will consume you, resulting in a person that is mad at the world and anyone else born "lucky. " You will be greedy of those who have love and are loved.

I speak from experience. I speak also vaguely at times because we all know society and life is not easy nor can it be easily figured out-there are many variables and constraints. But the message is something to try to live by (and remember) because you do not want to realize it true when you are in a helpless position and cannot go back i.e death of the one person that cares.

i did came close. i was staring at a knife type of close. had unbeareble nightmares. came to peace with death (which i think it's ok).

now, if you even slightly mention the word suicide, that's the biggest shout for help one can do. (!), ideally it's recommend to see a psychologist.

there a 2 main routes to suicide i think:

1. not being able to resolve an important problem for a long period of time, and being attacked by another in a different area.

2. being attacked on many life areas at the same time, really hard.

my thoughts on the solution/my case (i'm no shrink):

there are people who make u feel good even if they give u very bad news, and there are people who make u feel bad even if they give u a good news, or "help" u as they argue/think. live as much as u can with the first category.

i'm not on the right forum for this topic but believing in god is practically everything. even if we don't call it god, for example for me god is "the Human spirit", not sure it qualifies as a god tongue.png but it works for me.an ape flying to the moon and back is the closest godish thing in this universe. so i (try) and trust god (the empathic/spiritual/human connection seing people) for hope. that's the light in our lifes.

one last thought, we (the psyche) are a sort of forein affairs departament, meant to lead to food, shelter, mating, so we're ment to control/lead. the more we control the more involved and stronger we get in (the material) life. so staing alive means at least some little control. some control their bodies by getting an orgasm, some get pleasure from the (amount) of food they eat, some get pleasure by being the master (controling) a dog or a cat. i don't find them good solutions but if something or better someone takes the control of ur actions from u..

i'm not a psychologist.

lol I love how you use "ur" and "u" in your serious post in this serious topic.

I didn't say you had "mental problems" I implied you have poor coping strategies which is why you could benefit from some counselling. You need to learn to accept your acne and appearance.

no, I need to get money in order to treat acne properly and completely, I don't need counseling. why don't you answer all my questions, where's the picture by the way? can you show me your acne and how you accepted your appearance?

lol I love how this thread started all sensitive and is now getting all...uncomfortable.

Maybe I'm making a mountain out of a mole hill but why can't people just get along? Why do people have be all tetchy? Do we aspire to nobility or do we embrace beastliness?

How old are you? have you thought of perhaps getting a job to pay for your acne treatment or maybe asking a family member to assist you financially with the cost of treatment. There's always a way to get help, perhaps you haven't gone down the right avenue. And you still may need some counseling to help you work through your negative self image issues.

Also I'm in my early 30s and haven't had acne for quite some time now so there's nothing to show. I only had mild acne through my teen years.

oh so you're in your early 30s, don't have acne for over a decade, you bash people on acne forums and I'm the one who needs counseling right? how do you know I don't have a job? how do you know a family member can assist me financially? my negative self image issues would be gone without acne. you should know by now that there's people who weren't as lucky as you have been, and have sever acne, you can google to see what i'm talking about because you obviously don't have a clue. you probably had 3 pimples and you called it mild acne and now you come and give life lessons to people who have real problems, what are you doing on this froum anyway if you don't have "acne" anymore?

Whoah defensive! You have some anger issues. Perhaps this inner rage of your contributes to your acne? If you got your emotions in order, calmed down and changed your diet I honestly bet your skin would be a lot more normal. Emotional distress DEFINITELY affects acne.

Also here's a kit you could try in the mean time for your "severe acne":

Listen, I shouldn't continue this conversation, but you're funny. I don't have anger issues or inner rage, you seem to have. It's understandable though, what sane and healthy person, in her 30s, spends time on acne forums and why? Be honest, this is what your therapist recommended to you, to accept your appearance and self image issues by posting stupid things on random forums?

Anything that i can do to help. I have a very different life that only I know and you have one the very same way. Each is shaped by its experiences that is beyond acne as a physical problem. I am just trying to provide a shoulder and a calm word. Best of luck to yah. Do not let the past determine your future nor acne preventing you from succeeding.

Don't worry, she's whether miserable herself and tries to make herself feel better by going to such forums and putting people down, or is just an internet troll. In any case, not worth feeding a troll :)

I think we can all agree that this topic has veered away from its original purpose and direction.

In future if anyone reports a post, please allow the moderating team time to deal with the matter rather than continuing to squabble in the forum. It should be easy enough to ignore members that you do not agree with - lets face it, we do that in real life all the time.

Back on track people or this thread will be closed.

After remaining clear for around 1.5 years following DKR (The Regimen), in March 2013 I decided to change to Epiduo. I use a pea size amount of epiduo each night, followed by a layer of topical antibiotic (Eryacne). I also apply Eryacne every morning and moisturise twice a day. After switching to Epiduo from the regimen I found that it took a good 3 months to get back to being perfectly clear again and now I might get one small pimple appear per month. I can live with that

I started following Dan's Regimen in September 2011 after suffering with acne for 20 years or so. I followed the Regimen instructions exactly and became 100% clear within 9-11 weeks. In December 2011 and after being consistently clear for over a month, I started to slowly reduce the amount of BP I used until I was only applying BP at night. My skin still remained clear however I sometimes switched to applying BP twice a day for a few days (perhaps once a month) if I felt a few under skin bumps starting to come up. I used acne.org products (including AHA and jojoba oil) and sometimes cetaphil moisturiser at night if I felt my skin was especially dry. In the gallery I show my week by week progress following the regimen.
