#3406944 How ya feelin' about your acne today?

Posted by Perseverance92 on 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.)

"Doubt is to certainty as neurosis is to psychosis. The neurotic is in doubt and has fears about persons and things; the psychotic has convictions and makes claims about them. In short, the neurotic has problems, the psychotic has solutions."


Thomas Szasz,

-renowned psychiatrist and academic in the field

 

 

Read it. Think about it. Then apply it to what you've read in this thread. Maybe you guys can learn something about the different ways some people choose to deal with their issues; whether it be acne or anything else. 

If it's something written by CBIOT13...well,you don't miss it! I love your quotes man!

I've never felt more inferior.Today my  friends went to a club accompanied by their stunning girlfriends.They hogged before going .The food which they ate might be the last thing an acne afflicted individual might want to ingest.It was full of salt,butter etc.They drank 6 Heineken cans each so that they don't have to pay for alcohol at the club where beer is sold at thrice it's price.The girls looked so beautiful...The guys had flawless skin.They eat everything ,drink beer and even then they have immaculate skin which shines.I sat there watching them.I clicked photographs of the couples with lecherous smiles ,the smile which a guy has on his face when he knows ...that the night has something in store for him.

                                    I am so fussy about my food.I eat only the right food.Egg whites,green tea,less salt,almost zero sugar,no simple carbohydrates...And then what result do i get? Red inflamed skin... Life is a drudgery for me.I am not living it the way a guy my age is supposed to.While my friends are having the time of their lives with their girls at the club,i'm reading economic times(i'm not jealous)... About the sinking Indian economy and the draconian steps of the RBI to counter it.My whole life would be spent alone reading... I'm sick of being alone.My life is a drab.I hate my life sometimes. 

                                                                         What's the bloody purpose of my life? To study all the time? To prepare for exams ...so that i can redeem ? Redeem for not becoming a doctor ...Redeem for not fulfilling my mother's dreams and ambitions ? Get into a top B school... But what will i do after that? Because i'll always have a SHIT life.And no i'm not being negative... It's SHIT. ALWAYS!

                                                                           I drink beer=breakout. I workout=breakout. I eat my favorite food=breakout. I service myself=breakout. WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH MY BODY. Wouldn't being dead be the same as the life i'm living?

 

 

It stinks to be living the life i'm living.

I saw myself on video today, and I'm completely clear, but... I look so awkward and ugly. I feel like no one could ever find me physically attractive. I never thought I was unattractive when I talked and moved and laughed. But, I am... My front teeth are different lengths, my eyes get all squinty, my smile is too big, and my face stretches weirdly when I talk/smile :*( 

 

I got a 36 on my MCAT though!!! And I thought I did awfully! A 36 with my GPA and extensive shadowing, volunteering, and campus involvement (I didn't do it for the resume, though. I've filled my life with my passions, and hopefully, it will show...) is good enough to get an interview in any medical school in the country! 

With that MCAT score you can possibly  apply to any medicine college! You have a really bright career girl .May you become a compassionate doctor someday! I wish you become a great dermatologist and do some groundbreaking research and smash 'em all pimples in their roots smile.png

 

My good wishes.



I'm not gonna type anything negative here from this point on wards.You know talk positive and stuff... I'll type all ++++ stuff. So here's my first ++++ "Beautiful day! All clear! I love everything.I'm in love with my life!" . YO  beautiful people out there. 

 

Hugs.

I wish the acne community could live together so that instead of dealing with clear skinned peers who don't understand you and judge you,i'd have to deal with people going through the same tough times as me.Life would be so much easier.Life would be blissful. :) .I can only dream of such life.

 

I know it sounds like a silly dream but it's a dream nevertheless :P




#3361153 Acne Is Controlling My Life

Posted by Perseverance92 on 24 June 2013 - 07:48 AM

I'm 21 years old .And i have experienced(and still do) all the things which are currently been experienced by you.I know it's tough.Over the years i have learnt that a very important part of your acne treatment is "Acceptance". Yes,you have to accept things the way they are and just live your normal life.This,however doesn't means that you should let complacency take over you.No! Fight acne with grit and intelligence.But don't over do it.Don't let acne consume you and your life.Because you'll lose important years of your life.

                                     You are 16 and are in a beautiful country! I always wanted to visit Stockholm smile.png. Just enjoy your life there.Start taking things positively (i know this is very cliched.But this will help you stay calm and happy).Acne did ruin my college years.I always feel it was a serious impediment in my dating life.But in retrospect i think it was actually a good thing.Because i'm not the type of guy who has a new girlfriend every month and wastes time ,energy and money(i'm a big introvert,i won't be able to manage that) .Not having a dating life helped me in having loads of time which i invested in reading,studying (my academics) and making friends! But yes it sucks lol...I mean the tender touch of a lady  heals a man smile.png

                            So you cheer up girl! smile.png Make friends who understand you and help you with your acne. Be a happy little girl and see how you attract people towards you! People love positive people who are happy and make others happy.

 

Embrace success and take failures in stride.And then you'll shine like a star :)

Here's a picture of me with my new love if you're interested, lol

 

http://25.media.tumb...oqnpoo1_500.jpg

 

Seriously considering saving up my money and getting me one of these babies before too long here... especially considering the bastard government might make them illegal at some point. Jeez, people change so much. I used to be this peaceful little hippie who was against hunting and guns and all of that. I'm like the total opposite now and I'm LOVING the way it makes me feel. I've been through a lot of shit and I'm a hell of a lot tougher for it!

Oh dear oh dear oh dear. How could you get one of those after what's happened in your schools over there I don't know.

 

Why on Earth should I not have a gun because some psycho people have used them to kill? If anything, psychos existing in the world is MORE of a reason to have a gun, no? I never understand when people make this argument. Do you think that guns are robots that walk around by themselves and kill people? No. It takes a person USING the gun to kill people. I am a responsible adult and I'm not planning on murdering any innocent people, so why shouldn't I have a gun if I want one and enjoy shooting them?

Having and not having a gun? Well,i don't know that.But in the pic you sure look like an intimidating girl! I'd never want to mess with you ,god knows when you pull that trigger lol :P




#3359426 Repairing the long-term damage from Accutane

Posted by Perseverance92 on 19 June 2013 - 12:15 PM

I was well aware of the cons of taking Accutane. But i never knew that it could cause erectile dysfunction and low libido.Well,in that case i accept acne and not accutane! wink.png I love my masculinity more than my aesthetics. (Your girl would pardon you for acne but not if you don't perform well,you know wink.png




#3359419 Why Do People Stare?

Posted by Perseverance92 on 19 June 2013 - 12:11 PM

Poor upbringing you may say? I was always taught to never point my fingers or stare at anyone.Maybe not every parent imparts this basic rule of social etiquette to their children.Also this may suggest a very poor level of emotional intelligence as dejaclairevoyant said.A person having low E.Q   doesn't understands how his actions could affect others.They just do it for the heck of it.

 

People often stare at me and i find it so uncomfortable.Especially when girls do it.It's maybe because i have a very grim expression most of the times.Also i have unusually broad shoulders if compared to the rest of my body.But that's another story. :)



Interesting, I have a different situation than you guys. When I appear in public places, people don't stare at me, but instead, they don't look at me, they ignore me, they avoid eye contact, they look away when I move past them, because I'm so ugly. This has done me a lot of damage on my self esteem. I feel less worthy, not accepted, lonely.

I think there is nothing wrong if someone is staring at your son. If they're staring at him, let them stare, let them mind their own business, just move past those people that are not worthy of your/his attention. If a girl is staring at your son, perhaps she even likes him. wink.png

What you should be aware of is that if you son is being ignored by his friends at school because the ignorance ruins people relationship easily. wink.png

You're worried because you don't get attention by others? My problem is that i get too much attention by others but because of all the wrong reasons! And believe me,getting no attention is far better than getting "wrong" attention. ;)



Just wondering why people stare at others who have acne.  I was at the store today with my kids, including my young teenage son who has cystic acne and is on Accutane.  When we walked by these 2 young men (20s), one of them was STARING at my son as we walked by, not taking his eyes off of him.  It was SO RUDE.  I wanted to say, "Excuse me, why are you staring at my son??" Or, just slap him...  I can understand young kids staring at someone who has a skin disorder, but an adult in their 20s really should know better.

 

Surely others have experienced this.. How have you dealt with it?  I told my son, next time just stare back at them and maybe they'll look away  biggrin.png

 

oh, and this isn't the first time I've noticed someone staring at him.  But gee, you would think people (grown-ups) would have more compassion than to just stare at a kid who is already self-conscious and embarrassed about his skin.

While reading this i visualized myself as a dad with my son/daughter(having acne) being stared at in a mall.If it was my daughter and had she been old enough for male attention,i'd definitely punch that son of a _____ regardless of the reason he stared at my daughter in the first place.If it was a son then i'd leave that imbecile urchin on the plea that his mental strength is too inadequate to make proper social decisions.(He could be a pedophile,but that's another story again lol)
