Just curious how do you handle your job or school? I'm lucky to work in a small office with only a few people but that has not stopped me from calling into work due to the embarrassment of my acne. i don't suffer from to much acne but i do suffer from cystic acne and when its bad its bad! so bad that i don't want to leave the house. i have severe anxiety and depression because of this. Its only when I'm going through a breakout that the depression hits. when I'm clear I'm fine and happy! not all my breakouts are bad and some go away fairly soon but that cystic ones last a while and take what seems forever to go away. i'm currently going through recovering from not one but two of these cystic breakouts and they have me feeling bad. i'm tempted to call into work for a while. i have sick days so i can do it but a part of me is saying just suck it up and go to work. but i can't shake this feeling of just wanting to hide for a few days. this is not the first and i doubt the last time this will happen but I'm curious to see how do other people handle these situations?
