Please be honest, I am. I'm trying to make a connection to being happy and acne, so I'm trying to help everybody. If you vote in the poll, you'll be annonymus anyway, don't worry about that. I'm expecting a lot of "no's" too, I'm not going to criticize anybody or bring it against them, or whatever.

Now with that said, I'd like to tell a story. When I was back in elementry school, I waqs always the "temper tantrum kid," you know, the one who would hit the teacher, get pissed off at anything, etc. So as a result, I wasen't very nice, and there was nothing I could do about it, because my temper was largely caused by my allergies to mold, especially in autum when the leaves fell down and the leaf piles would become all moldy. So obviously, I had no clue why the other kids didn't like me. Since then I've setled down and am able to control myself. My allergies have moved from taking attitude effects on me to physical. Now I get cold like symptoms from it. But I've always retained a scar from those early years, that being the fact that I'm very tense, shy, uneasy, etc. around other people, especially those around my own age. It was last year that I went out paintballing with my friend and a few of his other buddies to a paintball arena. It was my second time paintballing, and my first in an outdoor arena. Also on that day I was going through one of the worst breakouts I've had in a long time and got a bad haircut the same day, so obviously I was under a lot of stress. But once I got on the field, I left it all behind, forgot about it and had a lot fo fun. We were there for a good majority of the day, maybe 8 hours. So I came home, I showered, and put my medicine on (Tanzorac). I was up until about 10 o'clock (I was tired, what can I say) But the next day was even better. I woke up, looked in the mirror, and BOOM! I had nothing on my face but 3 red marks. Ever since it has slowly came back unfortunately, but I still remember that day. So that's where I want you guys to leave off by answering my poll. Are you really happy in life?

Hmm, interesting...

It seems that there are more unhappy people here and more people with acne according to the poll. I think I see some sort of connection.

I like my life. Things can always get better and things can always get worse. I have the power to change most of the things I don't like tho.

I am happy with every single other element of my life except for my skin.

If acne was not an issue, I would not have one problem to worry about.

It's the only issue I ever think about now. Everything else is fine and I'm pretty happy, acne just takes things I should be happy about and makes me apprehensive about them, like spending time with my girlfriend.
