-Cringing before I look into the mirror

-Holding going to the bathroom, just so i don't have to look at myself

-Cringing holding my head down when I go somewhere with bright lights

-Thinking about asking someone out...and then not, because how could they want me with a face like mine?

-Looking in the mirror and seeing how beautiful I could be...if my skin was clear

-Talking to people, and seeing their eyes not looking into my eyes, but darting all over my skin

-Looking at people and imagining if I could have their skin for just a day

-Having the condition of my acne control my mood

-Always hiding my face, avoiding eye contact. Feeling ashamed.

-Feeling inferior

-Trying so hard, and failing

-Having people look at me, and seeing all the stereotypes in their eyes that acne comes from poor hygiene, that I'm dirty

-Feeling un-beautiful

So what am I going to do? Mope? Whine? No more. No more of this.

This is where it ends. No more slipping up. No more cheating.

I'm going to get rid of it, because I know I can, and I know I will if i try. If I believe.

Anyone else in?

I'm in.

Up until yesterday night, I was still upset and went to bed teary-eyed because I can't stand it anymore.

Fuck that.

I don't deserve this. Neither does anyone in this forum.

I'm going to get rid of it and give my LIFE.

Awesome post! :]

My doctor said to me that our brains our more powerful than we realise :]

It's good to see such determination in you. I have it too.

I'm not really going at it with THAT kind of approach; grabbing the bull by the horns. I mean, I'm going to stick to my diet and try to do all the things I'm trying to do, to clear my skin. And part of that IS to relax. Enjoy life. Stop worrying so dang much. So I guess that's kind of what I meant :)

I'm so glad that worked for you. Stress has a huge factor with acne. We get caught in a cycle that looks something like this:

Acne-->Worry-->More Acne-->More Worry-->More Acne-->Yet More Worry-->Lots of Acne-->etc.

I noticed, before I started this new...lifestyle, I'd call it, that I was a very stressed person. I would scowl as an automatic expression without thinking of it. My hands were always cold, which is a sign of stress. I was often kind of snippy and in a negative mood. I'm working on changing that all with this.

There is a nerve (although I do not know the name of it) within our bodies which produces stem cells naturally. This means our body can heal itself by producing more cells to replace the damaged ones. The particular nerve is stimulated by deep breathing, relaxation, and sleep. If we are stressing, this nerve slows production.

So you start a new cycle which is a little more simple:

Less Worry-->Less Acne-->Etc

Anyway, you have a really great point. Thanks for the post :)
