Chapter 1



After 9 years my journey with acne seems to have finally come to an end, but now another battle begins.

Over the years unhappiness, obsessive thoughts and social withdrawl have had a psychological impact on me affecting the way i have developed as a person.

Now in my early adult years I have now realised how essential relationships are whether professional or personal. The effect acne has had on my personality is making day to day social interaction tough. Even though it has finally cleared up I am just so used to being unhappy and feeling down I am unable to connect with others.

I desperately want my happiness back and this is my journey to reclaim it...


I wanted you to know that you while might be amongst the very few on this board that have won the battle with acne - you are not alone on your journey to finding yourself.

You are in the unique position for a second chance. This is your rebirth. All that space that was reserved for suffering - is free and ready to be filled with contentedness. Well wishes on your journey.
