Thanks for reading my very first post. A little about me. I'm 23 and from upstate New York. I'm an elementary education major. I've been dealing with acne since about the age of 12. It's only getting worse the older I get. It's hell to go into a 6th grade classroom and to have the same skin problems as these children.
I feel like employers/students/everyone I know won't take me seriously because of this skin issue. It's sad, but people judge you based on appearance. I'm great a teacher, I've spent all this time and effort in school, and I really hope my skin doesn't hold me back. It's done that enough in life.
It's not like you can simply take control of your acne....If I was fat, I could exercise; if I was ignorant, I could study. But the acne has a life of its own!
I have a great life, great family and great friends. I'm so grateful every day for the things I have, but as many of you know, when you have acne, it's always on your mind.
One of my goals in life is to not have to wear so much make up every day bc I'm so embarassed. It's getting better and I know my life is on a good path.
