Topics I've Started

"i Have Acne, But I Went Outside And It Went Great!" - Topic

03 November 2013 - 06:55 AM

I really hate the negative topics in this section. I even hate the "how do you feel about your acne today" - topic. It insinuates that you have to feel something about your acne every damn day and it "motivates" the active users here to keep focused on their acne.

 

So, hereby I introduce something else. I introduce this thread to share positive experiences. If this doesn't become a success, then it says something more about the users here than this thread.

 

I'll begin. I have acne on my face (around my mouth), scarring, acne in my neck and on my back. I went to eat with a bunch of people and I sport with another bunch of people last week. Actually, I do this every week and every week it is a success, because people treat me nicely and I felt great :)

 

Please share your positive experiences in this thread.


You Are All Extremely Beautiful!

I feel like I want to tell you all this:

 

I see the pictures of some posters here all the time next to the posts (just like you can see a picture of me) and I have to say that when I see you and read your posts, that you are all beautiful people with warm, social, huggable personalities :)

 

There is in my eyes no reason why you should obsess about your skin. You see, I see acne more as a feature of a person or a property that in no way influences how attractive that person is in my mind. I find the famous acne girl on Youtube very attractive whether she wears makeup or not. (I am not exactly sure how to say that in English, but I hope you understand what I mean :) )


Has It "derailed" Your Life Socially And Mentally?

21 February 2013 - 05:41 PM

Hi,

 

I'm 27, I've been bullied about it in the past and society deemed that I had to be put into social isolation because of my bad looks. I was the worst looking guy, so I had to be bullied and I had to be put in isolation. Don't bother saying that it wasn't because of the acne, because my experiences say otherwise.

I have never been able to make real friends and I haven't been going out from the age of 16 until 6 months ago when I decided that had to see a doctor about my problems, because I see people of my age getting children and I would like to have children as well within 10 years or so. It didn't really bother me before, but last year I realised that I actually had a depression when I talked to people about this. I never realised that I had a depression, because it was my normal state of mind. (and it still kinda is, but I'm "fighting" it with positive experiences these days).

I am finally meeting new people now and things are going better for me. It seems that people are now accepting me finally, but I have to pay money in order to see them and I would rather keep the money myself, but it is either this or back to hell again. The thing is that I have lived my entire life in the area I live in currently, but I have zero friends and I had otherwise no good contact with other people of my age. The doctor said that my acne was becoming less severe, but it was still severe enough that I have to at least get started with a Roaccutane treatment, because that was the bottom line for "realistic solutions".

 

Do any of you experienced something that I have experienced? (or rather have the severe lack of social experiences "normal looking" people have?)
