I don't let it bother me anymore.

With or without acne i dont let it stop me living anymore. I have come to learn that people like me for who am not what i look like. I have my best friends who i wouldnt change for anything and they dont give a shit about my acne.

I do the same things I do with or without acne and that involved being around those I care about, enjoying myself, doing music, and everything that makes life a very wonderful place... I dont let acne set me back at all because ultimately acne or not, I am still ME.

With acne:

*wear lots of makeup

*personality becomes more outgoing (self defence - I think I can distract with wit and charm, but I'm probably just being delusional)

*go through short bouts of depression

*scour the internet for remedies

Without acne:

*wear less makeup

*become more quiet, but still smiley

*wear my hair down more often

*accept more invitations to go out and do things

*don't use the computer as much

The difference is subtle for me, with acne, when I'm out and with buddies I am the same dude and dont let it bother me. But its more when I'm just at home doing nothing, it gets me feeling a bit shit and then if I'm out alone and I've got a load of acne I'm no where near as confident, ah yeah I also hate going into 7/11 or McDonalds with acne, the lights are way too white/bright. Without acne, I'm myself without being concious of the ugly ass puss filled lumps on my face.

With Acne :

1- Look at the floor a lot when I pass people outside or look to the side.

2- Don't go out with my friends and tell them why and they get pissed.

3- Start lifting weights to counter my face with a hopefully better body.

4- If it's really bad, I don't go to some of my uni lectures.

5- Try to forget about them but the pain they bring makes them obvious in my head.

6- Play a game where I estimate how long a particular spot will leave a red mark.

7- Drink around 5 litres of water in desperation, (sometimes it works because of the placebo effect).

8. Look in the mirror everytime I pass it and die inside a little each time.

Without Acne :

1- Much more social.

2- I SMILE.

3- I lose a lot of my bitter sarcasm.

4- I feel more confident in talking with the opposite sex.

Has anybody ever had the opportunity to completely clear, (excluding red marks). The feeling I get is just pure joy. It makes me want to make normal people not take their amazing effortless skin for granted and hug everyone.

Hey kiwi, I've wondered about the whole make up deal. Do you ever feel that wearing make up will break you out more. If I was a girl, I would be so paranoid of that.

Ouh. I have been never clear (ok there was time when I was like under 12 and I was clear.. Nothing happened in my life though). So I don't have a clue how it it would be if I was clear and much better confidence (now I'm getting my confidence back though and don't matter how my face look like - people like my or not - The only way is upppp)
