In Topic: How Do You Accept Your Looks Being Permanently Ruined?

No one can provide a satisfactory answer to this question because there isn't one. It's a hopeless situation that will NEVER get better. My skin literally won't respond to ANY treatment.


If true as you say then why are you here? If your skin doesn't respond to anything either 1) your not trying 2) you have negative views before you start therefore it will not work and your compliance with a treatment goes down with it. There is a psychological factor to this you know.. Doubt yourself and nothing will work.Have a constant negative outlook and you will live in self misery, and shorten your life span
So, I say again. Why are you here? What drives you to come to this website if that is your attitude? 


I come here to read stories, learn insight, be reminded how lucky I am compared to others,  gain perspective, and provide support. I see nothing of this from you unfortunately. Were not hear to argue about what can be answered or can't.

Be happy PERIOD.
-I would finally feel free to wear clothing that stands out.
-I would feel so much more comfortable going out.
-I would finally look in the mirror and smile for the first time.
-I would go back to doing activities that I used to enjoy.
-I would feel confident enough to date again.
-I would be more social & outgoing (like before).
-Applying makeup wouldn't be as much of a struggle.
-I would finally feel normal and not like some outcast.
-Wouldn't feel as hopeless or lonely.
-I would finally feel like I'm good enough and be content with who I am.
-I would work on the emotional trauma that acne has left me with.


Alot of these can be done while you are working on your skin and may actually improve your skin, just by reducing stress. Have you considered jumping right in?



>Find her, share in many experiences and feel what it is really like to live every moment, laugh everyday, and love beyond words, marry her, make babies and spend more time with family.

Living every moment now means being brave enough to not allow acne to be your excuse for why you cannot "find her" and do all of those desired things. Can you be brave?

 

I have been.I continue to be. People are shallow.

While I do not support them, without medication i.e antibiotics people would be still dying from simple things like pneumonia. There's are reason it was the number one cause of death in the early 1900's. It has its uses. Gels and creams do work, but not for everyone because acne is a multifaceted disorder much like heart disease..  unrelated, but complex.


multi-faceted disorder involving what?


 Immune response, ability of bacteria to colonize on skin, hormones and their influence on sebum production, triglycerides, sterols, hormones, cortisol and their direct and indirect on the consistency of sebum and how it relates to increased acne production, oxidation of sebum, keratinization and cell differentiation (the likelihood of a clogged pore), dietary influences, stress, heredity for those that love this argument, environment..the list goes on. All influences. This is not a simple issue in which gels, creams, pills, light therapies, and home remedies or whatever else that will effectively treat acne in every person who has it. Acne is a big tree with many branches. The above attempts to treat the most influencing sources.

The problem here is that many are on a witch hunt to pin acne as a result of this leaky gut phenomenon. With next to no non-bias, real literature as proof. The treatments again vary. Intestinal permeability is seen in chronic disorders of the bowel. This i did look up and makes perfect sense if real for those patients as they actually have a real disorder with similar symptoms, the clinical pathway is similar, and most respond to medication or surgery in those cases.

Though waste your time if you may. Do the suggested treatment and see what happens. Don't come back unhappy if nothing changes. 
..makes me wonder if people do get better is because something else was wrong (i.e. liver issues, endocrine, hormonal, allergy, etc), yet this gets the credit...
