I notice myself hiding away from the world with acne. Telling people I have an eye sensitivity which is why sunglasses need to be worn at all times when outside (even when its not sunny) - just so I can hide, Hide away from those stares of disgust. Anyone get them? Those glares, as if you have a third eye in the middle of your forehead - but in fact its probably just a pimple.
I notice that I cant look in the mirror with my contacts/glasses on, I run away from mirrors, or somehow blurr my vision, squint my eyes so I cant see the true me.
I'm hurting - and I truly wish that everyone else that is hurting to gets cured. Acne is a troubling skin problem and I am glad we have a community to share our emotions.
Best of luck everyone with your regimens!
Don't give up.
