Pissy night at home

07 October 2006 - 08:21 PM

So acne has completely turned my social life inside out. I have one friend that I hang out with on occasion when my face looks okay. But since I had acne, I quite hanging out with my friends and completely lost touch with them all. Most of them went off to college. My boyfriend and I are usually together when he's not at work. Tonight though, he decided to go hang out with his friends. I'm stuck at home because I don't have any!! I don't blame him for going out. I even told him he should at least have fun (cause we don't even have much in common). It's just aggravating because 1. I don't have friends and 2. I don't even know where to find some.  doubt.gif

Just getting my frustrations out a bit, but if you have advice, shoot some my way.

No Job

Let me hear your job stories. I need something...
I haven't had a job in over 4 months, and before that, it was about a year. I can't handle getting a job because of my acne. I have cystic acne on my chin. I REALLY want to work because I hate not doing anything. I still live with my dad and he just thinks I'm the most lazy worthless person on the earth. I would tell him its because of my acne, but he had it too and so he would say that because he went through it, I could too. My boyfriend is constantly paying for everything for me. My mom sends me $100 every 2 weeks which gets me gas and tampons. I really want to work and depend on myself...

So....info please.

shingles, warts, hives, acne......

04 October 2006 - 10:12 PM

I'm not sure where to post this..but I was hoping someone could maybe give me a little insight as to what the hell my body is doing. I've had various skin conditions since age 11. When one was cured, I would get another. It went on for a while.

Age 12: Shingles (lasted for a week)
Age 13: Only at night, my legs would get covered in hives and my feet would swell up tremedously. By morning it was gone. I was cured by taking zyrtec and zantac 75.
Age 14: Consistent sweating. I always sweat from my underarms for no reason. My shirts would be soaked before I even got to school in the mornings. It was fixed with drysol.
Age 15: Warts. Within about one week, I got around 7 warts on my hands. I had them all frozen off.
Age 16: Cystic acne. I still have it but I am currently taking accutane.

It seems as though my body is dealing with some random problem through my skin. I don't know why I've had so many skin disorders. The only thing that stands out is right before I got shingles, my parents began to split and my mom left. Very stressful, depressing time..

But now I am nearly 19, and it seems like theres a big issue..

Any ideas???  eusa_think.gif
