Feeling better today as the breakout I had in the middle of last week is clearing. Feel a bit stupid about letting it get to me now though - I fortunately am fairly clear most of the time these days so I shouldn`t have reacted in the way I did.
Just on a general theme, most of the people who post on the emo and psyche forum seem to have at some point in their lives been bullied, discriminated against or had to contend with derogatory comments about their skin. It is so easy to feel inferior when you have acne but trust me, the people who make fun and belittle are sad, shallow people with a chip on their shoulder. Having acne is often a condition that you cannot control and having it does not make you any less a person. The two-bob arseholes who deride you for it are far uglier than you will ever be.
I will continue to browse acne.org no doubt as it is a brilliant place to come to when you having a rough time. However, I do try my best not to focus on my skin these days so sometimes it is better for me not to login.
Good luck to all of you battling against acne or the emotional crap that very often comes with it. Just remember that no matter what the severity of your acne, you are just as good as the next person and you are all worth it.
