i feel u. i force myself to NOT look or i'm in a bad mood for the rest of the day. im no fun to be around when im in a bad mood, so for the sake of those around me, i don't look in reflections.

I just had to respond to this because I do the same shit all the time! lol I will look in one mirror and be like hey things are looking up, then look in another mirror and wished I hadn't. But right now my face looks so horrible I hate to look in any mirror. Ive never been so broken out before, this sucks but im trying to stay positve and hope that the bcp's im on and the antibiotics will work. Even though I feel things are worse, and if this continues I will finally just go on accutane. Im so sick of putting up with this horrible skin.

I second that. I look into the mirror to check out my horrid scars in the morning and try to avoid the mirror in the day in case i catch a glimpse of my scars
