#3492989 Depression And Obsession With No One To Talk To

Posted by Cassie88 on 20 August 2015 - 10:25 AM

You are not alone and I know exactly how you feel. Just two days ago all the stress and unhappiness caused me to pick a cyst on my cheek. I now have a HUGE yellow scab and feel even worse. When you get to the mirror and are about to pick just try to pause and think about how in just a few minutes you will feel so much worse and guilty.

The danger is when you get into the "zone" as I call it where you just go into a frenzy and pick at every little bump on your face. I had managed to not pick for several weeks by forcing myself to stop and think how in a few minutes i could destroy my face. I remembered the times I had picked and then immediately regretted it wishing i could go back in time just by 2 minutes.

I think a big factor is there are so few people we can go to about this. I'm trying to find support groups for OCD and dermatillomania near where I live, maybe you could do the same?

#3476979 I Can't Get Over The Bullying I Endured In High School Because Of Acne

Posted by Cassie88 on 04 April 2015 - 05:54 PM

School was the worst experience in my entire life and I too have a lot of built up resentment and anger. It got so bad at one point I found a lot of the bullies on facebook and messaged them if they had regrets about the way they were at school. All but one never replied and blocked me, which to me implied they were ashamed and wanted to pretend nothing happened. Some of them have kids now which scares me because a lot of them (the girls) were physically abusive. I have extreme social anxiety and get panic attacks in large crowds or even just walking through town. 


The one who did reply apologised and for me that helped provide a little bit of closure. I'm not saying you should stalk these people or anything lol but maybe if you get the chance ask them why. You are a better person than they will ever be and the fact you've managed to survive this far proves that. Try not to let it eat away at you too much because its not healthy, I know! Hang in there!

#3320803 Do Girls Care About Acne? Tips For Guys With Acne

Posted by Cassie88 on 22 January 2013 - 05:03 PM

I know quite a few girls with clear skin going out with guys with visible acne, but they always seem to be a bit older, at school a lot of the girls i.e. the 'popular' ones were shallow with that sort of thing (lol no chip on my shoulder honest)  but I'm guessing media has a greater influence at that stage in life.
Personally acne on a guy has no influence on my opinion of him, in fact I kind of find a few box scars on a guy attractive!
