In Topic: Dating With This Face (Pics)

10 April 2014 - 04:58 PM

Hello,

       To be honest i never saw anything wrong with your face in the first two pics.Even in the third pic there was just a little unevenness on your lower left cheek.Nobody can make out from your face that you EVER had cystic acne.And you are so pretty! You talk about dating with that face? You'll get a score of guys who'll want to pursue you :) 

                                                                                    Having an "Uneven" personality is worse than having uneven skin. I'm 21 and have flawless girls in my college.Believe me , when they talk , all beauty disappears.Acne is a very humbling experience.So i'm sure with a good personality you'll be even more attractive.Throw the "blues" out of the window and live your life ;)

                                                                                                                                                                



And yeah... SMILE! don't be so glum.


In Topic: How ya feelin' about your acne today?

10 January 2014 - 11:33 AM

My acne bickering gave way to a pointless debate with aanabill (Don't know where she is these days).The topic of the debate was ridiculous.I was of the opinion that acne is sometimes more debilitating than fatal diseases like cancer . I quoted "Cancer kills you once but acne weakens you everyday".Aanabill opposed this and said i'm completely wrong.We fought and finally she won.She told me how immature i was . Even though i accepted my defeat i had this nagging doubt in my mind .

 

The doubt has been cleared.What a fool i have been.I have taken life for granted.I have taken all the happy things in my life for granted.

.

Recently my grandmother got her inner cheek biopsy done (She complained of a chronic ulcer).To our horror the biopsy report said it was squamous cell carcinoma.My grandmother is one of those few people in this world to whom i'm very attached.My mother despite being a doctor broke down in tears (well a mother is a mother).After many years i cried.And i remembered my debate with aana. My ugly ideology made me squeamish... I felt repentance. Now my grandmother had her mandablectomy done and the cancer has been removed.She's convalescing in the hospital.I have changed my views.This life changing event has made me wiser.

 

(I miss talking with aanabill on various topics . I guess she was a popular figure here.)

Yes to both.
Sigh, there are moments where you feel like, you wont give up.
Then time will come like you just want it to end. Like you just want to give up and give up trying to be happy. You know what i mean?
Cursed life. 
AFter acne disappears (which has not for me), it's not the end. It will still leave you scars and sometimes it is severe. Not only physical but mentally.
Hope? My hope,,,..... it wavers. I just hope that, my scars will disappear with time(That can happen). Though my deep scars, i dont expect those to disappear with time so im hoping it will disappear with treatments.
Even so, i am trying to be happy. It's hard. I never thought being happy was such a hard task. 
But what can we do? 



Yeh ive get you...ive got a kinda bipolar styled attitude to acne i range frm like being able to get on with life n deal n still be me, full of laughs sarcasm n fun then the next im the opposite seclude myself, overthink n obsess n go dark which is a pretty awful place to be in...we know we need to try and deal and get on with life n learn to say ah well fuck it its not goin anywhere anytime soon so lets jus do this living nonsense anyway bt who knows how you do that i thnk ive let the psychological effects take over so our whole lives revolve around acne and as soon as you see yourself in a mirror your right back to grrrrr! So to be fair my own mind is worsening the situation, making me a tad bitter and stoppin this happyness malarky, now thats messed up....

Is it possible to be happy with acne....yeh....sometimes....its all about living day to day n dreading tht breakout bt thts no way to live so i think sorting out the old mind would def ease up on the ol heart its just finding a way to do that and not lie to yourself in the process.....xx

>Hmmm , no to both 1 and 2. Because iv'e had enough of it and i have learnt to embrace my reality the way it is. Yearning to be someone else , looking out of the window wistfully,thinking of a life sans acne just makes it worse... :/ 


How do you not think about something that blatently stares you square in the face everyday. If you are being true to your words then you have def to be admired acceptance isnt easy done...those that cant deal shouldnt be down cried though. you do make it seem like a switch you can just turn off and say right no more but for me that only works for so long....advice on how u did it would be appreciated...im thinking though it just depends on each persons attitude and frame of mind

Well,just accept it. Accept that you're made this way.Accept that you're not one those who have flawless skin and can eat/do anything and still remain the same.Accept the fact that you won't look perfect in photos,that a cratered cheek is o.k. If you'll keep on thinking "why me"? It'll just disappoint you.So accept it.Try please :)

 

Because acceptance obviates your insecurities :)

I got acne when i was 16.It affected me the most when i was 19 ,when i began college.I let it affect so much :( .Now i'm 21 and i don't let it control me. And fortunately/co-incidentally acne has disappeared  . Your psychology affects your acne too . You may say that my acceptance of acne and the disappearance of it is a mere happenstance.But what i believe is : The more you think about it the worse it becomes.Because for me,the more i think about it,the more i touch my skin and thus make my acne worse.So just don't be so fixated ... Live your life.Because acne is trivial ;)


In Topic: Living With Acne Doesn't Have To Be Such A Bad Thing.

27 October 2013 - 05:52 PM

Why is acne not severe? WHY? I spent the 19th year of my life locked in a room seething with depression.I lived in a hostel,and while every other guy had a date or two,i was busy applying benzoyl peroxide on my mutant face .I had flawless skin and a clear complexion prior this scourge.Now,it has somehow left a darker version of me with oily coarse irregular skin.I can't talk to a person straight eyed because inevitably their attention wanders of to my face .

 

Acne ruined my social life .A good social life is conducive for the overall development of an individual.And so,i'm only half developed.

And then you say acne is not a handicap...you,who probably is an acne sufferer yourself.

There are two type of diseases: A  ,which hinders with your normal life eg.motor neuron disease B. Which seriously affects your quality of life eg.acne.

While A is almost always more severe than B , B is in no way lesser a nuisance...

QUALITY of LIFE is equally important!!! 

 

 

Maybe the research fraternity needs to stop working on cures for cancer and AIDS.Find a bloody vaccine for acne.Eradicate it for good....


In Topic: How Many Of You Here Have Developed Social Anxiety Bcs Of Acne

27 October 2013 - 05:30 PM

Throughout my teenage ,right to my adulthood ,iv'e been diffident.First it was teenage obesity then it was acne.Varied reasons for perpetual mortification.Apart from the 6-7 male friends i have at college,i have NO other friends.I'm virtually devoid of any emotional I.Q whatsoever.I'm 21 and never had female contact of ANY kind.

I have acute social anxiety.It affects my demeanor,my confidence,my gait ,everything!

 

Yes i hate my life sometimes.

I never had a date.

I'm not desperate for it...but life would have been better if i had one.

Life stinks sometimes.

:/
