Hello fellow Acne sufferers, this is my first blog on this site. I joined because honestly acne has become a huge stress in my life and I think blogging would help. To those who decide to read this I will introduce myself. My name is sk8(not posting real name) lol. I am a 17 year old male, yes that may sound weird but even teenage boys can talk about their problems. I am a sponsored skateboarder so that is the influence behind my name. I am still in high school, a junior to be exact. I make decent grades but lately i have had a feeling of helpless as my acne tends to not let up, so my grades have begun to drop. As a teenage boy some may not think it is a big deal to have acne but for me it really is. I already feel a little better just saying that. There is honestly so much I want to talk about and i will probably post a lot in my free time. I guess I should say what I am doing for my acne at the moment. I am using Cera Ve hydrating cleanser when I wash my face. I wash my face twice daily. Medication I am using is prescribed by a dermatologist. I am using Acanya gel in the morning and Differin at night. I am also using solodyn antibiotic once daily. But I don't really want to talk about how to get rid of acne or what products work which is very far and in between in my case. I want to talk about the emotional stress and psychological effects come with having acne. Well simply put acne sucks. It makes me afraid to look in the mirror because i feel so ugly it makes me sick. I wish the society wasn't so focused on looks but that is just how things are ): I wish I could just wake up and not care what I look like but that is not going to happen. The sad part in my case is that without acne I would actually be attractive. The biggest reason I am going to start blogging is because what I have been feeling lately. What i have been thinking a lot about lately is suicide. I have not attempted it or actually thought about attempting it. It has just been lingering in my mind for some time. Sometimes I just simply do not want to live with the burden of acne. I can't live a normal life. This may sound ridiculous, because I know it could be worse. I could have no legs, or have to breathe through a tube. But for me having acne feels like the worst thing that could happen to me. Living life for me has come down to just trying to get through the day. Which is not how I want to live my life. Well anyway this has been my first entry and there will be more to come. Please if you took the time to read this I would appreciate ANYONEs comments. I want to hear from you, yes you. Thank you for reading my blog, and as always acne sucks
