Can anyone else relate to this feeling??

Acne has put an unconscious hold on my brain. It took away all my creativeness and imagination because all I worry about is how I look before I go out. I don't go outside of my house exept for school. I only dream about how I would be if I never had acne. It's not that bad now but the psychological effects are still there. It pisses me off to think that there are all of these depression pills and acne treatments and not one of them cures the problem.

Exactly!! Back when my acne was bad it hurt me so much to look in the mirror and go out and have people look at me. That is why I got into makeup (changed the way I felt TONS) But none the less acne does cause huge depression. Its amazing how fast it can change though. One day you will get a nice girlfriend and she wont care about it, and once you got that and good friends and good surrounding around you, then you wont be bothered much with your acne. It will go away soon.

my family probably thinks im schizo, cuz i used to be so funlovin. Always crackin jokes and whatnot. Acne turned my mean. It spoiled my mind. Now everytime I joke its to offend someone, but everynow and then I wake up on the right side of the bed and seem to be on, all day. I just hope this is only temproray.

i took everything from antibiotics to accutane and all the stuff in between. It's not that bad now. I have about 1 pimple, couples red dots and scars, many blackheads in my t-zone. It's just i used to get so paranoid and anxious about my complexion that it has left me shaken. Like a chihuahuah in the snow.

Yeah, I can definitely relate to that. You went on accutane and it didn't clear you? Or maybe it did since you say you only have 1 pimple. I was lucky about my blackheads since this shiseido product took care of them for me.

accutane worked for about 6 months afterwards. Thats when i had a spike of self confidence. I started getting moderate acne again and now I feel like shit. My acnes pretty much gone(knock on wood) but I'm still feelin shitty
