#3402672 Why Is Acne Viewed As A Joke By Society?

Posted by Aka*Tom on 21 December 2013 - 12:32 PM

Ignorance, and misunderstanding of what it is seem to be big factors for me.

 

Before I used to suffer, I never even used to bat an eye about what it was, why it existed etc. I didn't have a care in the world for my skin. That was 5 years ago, and ever since, I just can't help but look at every single person's skin and compare it with mine, be it better or worse.

 

Also I think the people who don't suffer and see people with problems on their face just don't understand why they have them. I assume they just instantly think 'eww look at how bad his skin is, he must be really unhygienic bla bla bla'. And this is the reason it gets me down so much. The amount of times i've been asked what have i done to my face, or what's wrong with it. I just sort of ignore the comment, or mumble something. But every time I just want to shout' I have no fucking idea!! I didn't do anything, it's just my fucking shit skin, now fuck off!!'..or words to that effect,

I don't know... I kinda lost any hope. It's so unjust. I know my friends drink a lot alc, smoke, eat junk food, don't do sports and still have perfect clear skin... How is that? Where is your god now... ha. That's complete nightmare

 

I've just said the exact same thing  My friends life involves drinking, smoking, drugs, minimal exercise, eating starchy sugary crap. Result? Perfect skin.

 

Me...the complete opposite = acne and shit skin. 

 

But what can ya do! We gotta get on with it, and enjoy your life as best you can :)

>Yesterday I was kind of feeling alright for the first time in ages. I have this big red mark right under the corner of my mouth but I thought it was starting to heal. But this morning I woke up with 2 spots right by my mouth on the same side, and the inflammation has made this red mark look big and aggravated again. 

 

I'm supposed to be going to a house party tomorrow night, what a barrel of laughs that's gonna be; constantly looking away from people, making no eye contact, worrying about how bad my face looks...

 

Sorry you're breaking out right now but try and have fun at the party - it'll be good for you to have some fun and not worry/stress (which we know aren't great for acne anyway). Maybe even treat the party as a 'confidence building test' tongue.png

Try and have a good time smile.png

 

 

I knoww, I'm gonna try. It's easier said that done though as we all now. I have 4 or 5 spots all around the corner of my mouth, and this is aswell as a patch of red/brown skin there which makes them look fuckin' awful. 

 

I'm gonna go, and I'm gonna try and have fun. I would rather curl up in bed and treat my face though.
