Meanest thing that someone has said about your acne
Posted 10 August 2003 - 06:53 PM
"Can I play connect the dots on your face?"
I was waiting in the deli of a supermarket, when I start overhearing some people.
"Oh my goodness, he looks horrible. How could he go out like that?"
"He is probably like only 14." Note. I was 18 at the time, I look young.
"I wouldn't let him date my daughter."
They said some more things like that, then...
"I have to stop looking at him, or I will throw up."
I was about to walk right up to them, then...
"Why can't he dress like that nice boy in the red shirt." I was wearing the red shirt. They were talking about a kid in the food court dressed like a punk, complete with green hair. I was so self conscious I thought they were talking about me, damn acne.

i remember when i was on retin a micro a girl asked me if i had a bad sunburn or something, cause my face was peely ..
and yea, i alsso remember this guy asking me why my face was so dry and flaky.. yea he even said "flaky".. (it was cause i would put a lotta meds on my face to try to clear it).. and one of my girlfriends looked at me and said something about how i shouldnt wear that amount of makeup cause it causes breakouts.. yea i wanted to die, esp when that guy said that to me.. but those days are pretty much over for me.. cause now im cleared from bp and b5.

The WORST is when you know someone is thinking something about how bad your acne is while you talk to them. You just get this feeling thats hard to describe
comments while working at a register in a supermarket:
"You should see a derm about your acne" (I have for the last half year bitch)
"Daddy, whats wrong with that boys face?"
comments from 'friends' and family:
"Hahah your face looks like a tomato" (from the roaccutane which causes the flushing)
"oooh your skin looks really bad, you poor thing"
"hey ACNE" (this was the worst, being named after this disease as if I was defined by it )
(from ignorant greek grandparents) : "Whats these mosquito bites on your face?"
and of course lots of people making suggestions to wash your face.
I just dont get what gives these people the urge to say something, like just shut up you bastards.

Then, this girl I talk with I met at my church... she is always nagging me about my left over scars & it irritates me.... I think she really likes me if my scars go away because she is always talking about how cute & fine I would be if my scars go away. The most embarrassing thing that happened was I was in teen ministry with a bunch of teens & here she comes with Cocoa Butter..... She says... I thought you needed some for your face so I bought you some. I didn't know whether to say thanks or slap her!She was all loud & everyone heard & they started giggling!!
This girl is either incredibly stupid and tactless or incredibly meanspirited. I suspect it's the latter, because no one could possibly be that dumb.

I'm starting this thread so people can put down what the meanist thing that was said to them concerning there acne. Here is a few of mine.
"You drink beer huh? That's why you got so many pimples"
"You look like a pizza" That is definatley a personal favorite
"Whats wrong with your face"
Do you take steriods?
Well, they say that because I'm semi-built and people who take steriods gain alot of acne sometimes on body parts

However, I can't let anyone kno that it bothers me, even tho i often cry at night because i feel like a monster or i just wish that I could be normal. Feeling sorry for yourself will not make you feel better. Even though i have absolutly no self confidence, I walk with my head held high and laugh at narrow-minded comments which people are going to always make, no matter who you are. I just try not to let it bother me too much even though it hurts my feelings so much. I'll think that, if i didnt have acne, i would be more atractive. I say fuck society! Who are they to say whats acceptable in a person and what is not! I may have acne, but I'm the same person, with or without. Just sometimes i feel jipped. When i was younger (before acne) i was always told that i could be a model someday. I think im still pretty, but i can't seem to look past the redness and the scars. my friends often tell me that they're jealous of my looks, but how could I believe them? And my boyfriend always gets mad at me because whenever he tells me that I'm beautiful, I look away and don't believe him. I just want self esteem.

Kids asked me what happened to my face.
i was trying to avoid the sun because i had medicine on my face and my doc say to shy away from the sun, then one my friends told me why don't I wear a cap, i will look BETTER that way...
At those relative gatherings, my mum started discussing with my relatives on ways to get rid of acne(ok this is mean i felt like shouting at her, stop it!!! stop talking about my face in front of so many people, i was gonna burst out crying)
