yup i can totally relate. i am going through the exact same thing. except I've been in "hiding" all week. i stupidly picked at it and made it into a huge scar that is just healing but so noticeable. i don't know why i do this to myself. i was perfectly clear for like 3 weeks and bam all of a sudden this happens.

first know that you are NOT alone. i am a 30 yr old mother of two. i am also struggling with acne and depression. the depression only hits when i am going through a major breakout! other then that i'm happy most of the time. at the moment I'm recovering from two cystic breakouts. they were so bad i called into work all last week. i work at a family business so i can do that but i don't like to. i know that is not an option for a lot of people. i've lost three jobs before because i would call in when my breakouts were to severe. i didn't want anyone to see me. i'm sure it would be a lot more lost jobs if it weren't for me working at a family business. i'm not strong enough to tell my husband that my depression is coming from my breakouts. i try and hide it. all he knows is that i get anxiety and depressed and when he asks why? all i say is, i don't know! i should be able to tell him but i'm to scared of him judging me. i don't think he will because i know he loves me. he is an amazing man but it's my own insecurities that won't allow me to open up to him about this. instead i come here to vent and share. its hard to stay positive and so many times I've prayed to not wake in the morning but i know that is selfish of me. i have kids to think about. i think you just have to remind yourself that no one is perfect. everyone suffers from different things. and even those that seem to have a perfect life really don't. know that your children love you no matter what. now to trying to clear your acne, have to tried the regimen? i am currently on it. have been for over a year and while it has helped i still get breakouts but not as much. my issue is the skin picking. i pick and make it so much worse. this whole week I've been trying to stop. i'm getting better but i have to remind myself not to because i KNOW that is what is making it worse. good luck and know that we are here to talk and help in anyway we can.
