Gfunk, I can relate! D: Being at school with acne is the worst because I get really paranoid about leaving my room, or I pile on a shit ton of makeup. I sometimes get into a self pitying mindset when I'm in my room too long, so I try to get out even though my acne is really bad. I usually just go to a place at my college where there isn't a lot of people studying, like a classroom or departmental office lounges.

Today I feel shitty about my acne. I have a lot of tiny bumps, several angry red pimples and scabs as well as post acne pigmentation in various healing stages all over my face to the point that my face just looks red.

But I'm not gonna let how I feel about my acne be equivalent to how I feel in general. :) Though it does tend to get to me sometimes. Right now I'm happy! Because I gave myself an awesome manicure that looks like this: http://www.alllacqueredup.com/wp-content/u...on-manicure.jpg

Not too bad but I have a big spot on both the far left and far right jawline underside, most probably due to a lapse in diet after eating some dairy. I didnt think such a little amount would do so much damage but I guess I was wrong. At least now I know...

I look completely horrid. My forehead looks like a pizza. The red marks on either side of my mouth won't budge, but at least no new ones are forming there. I HATE CLOSED COMEDONES. Bumps cover like 70% of my face. It just keeps getting worse and I'm losing hope. I'm just trying to forget it's there during the day. There's one mirror in my house that's "safe" too look in, the rest just have too much natural light. I have to stand by my front door for a good 5 minutes before I can convince myself that catastrophes won't happen if I step off my porch. I think I'm getting a cyst thing by my ear and I haven't had cysts in like 2 years. I was doing so well and it's all going downhill. School starts the day after tomorrow, I just want to crawl in a hole and hide, but of course I'll slap on that fake smile and go through the motions anyway.

I go to the derm on Thursday, finally. I'm soooo scared though. I doubt anything will help. I don't want someone to look at my face close-up. I'm probably gonna cry, actually. I've always thought that if only I could go to a doctor, it would get better. They would fix it. And now I'm starting to think-- what if I get there and the doc can't fix it either?

What then?

Well, then I'm just fucked.

I feel great.

Had two pop up yesterday and another 3 on the way because i havent been treating my face. However it won't stop me from working, it wont stop me from training and it wont stop me from going out this weekend.

It's a apart of me. It's with me everywhere i go. This is the same for everyone. The sooner you accept that the sooner you will be out of your pit of depression. You can't cure it you can only control it. However this does not combat the mental damage it is causing. Everyone has to focuss on that more than the physical side of it. The reason i say that. When i first got clear i was still depressed so the problems run a lot deeper than one might think.

I feel like crap. I am so over people staring at me...it's so rude. Likewise, I can't stand carrying conversations with people half the time because I'm tense, waiting for their eyes to stray onto my cheeks of doom...

It's excellent that I work in retail.

And my dad's a selfish, chauvanistic, self-pitying arsehole, I can't talk to anyone about it and it's dragging me down every single day.

It's like everything's snowballing. I don't want to look back on the times at this point in my life that are good, and regret that this all overshadowed it.

Fark =[

I have a few red marks and bits that are healing up, but other than that im feeling quite good. Im trying not to think about my acne to much though and I believe that its one of those things for some people (me included) where you just have to ride it out. I have let it stop me from doing lots in the past, but I have come to realise that its not worth missing out on things for.

Its like the other day I thought I want to go on holiday, and the usual doubt started creeping in (like what about my acne etc...!) but I thought oh what the hell just do it! Im really excited right now as im coming to the states in about 30 days or so for a trek from NY to LA! Its mostly camping (which i have never done!) and again i started to freak a bit about showers, routines, diets, getting changed, sharing a tent etc...but they are all such stupid things to worry about, I thought dude seriously man up! Dont let acne bring you down!

Bad. Mostly because I asked my dad to pick up some more moisturizer for me, and then he calls going, Okay I got it and some soap for you to wash your face with, because you need to change up your regimen since it's not working.

I was like, HUH?? Uh, okay, no way in HECKA am I using freaking SOAP to wash my face. And he was all, But I use that! Well dad, you're the only one in the family with ACNE SCARS, so how do ya think that's working out for you??

Stuff like that just really irks me. :evil:

Besides, all I have are red marks from my last time-of-the-month breakout. I was all excited and everything, but then that happened, and it was like everything came crashing down. After I hung up, I cried in front of the TV for a few minutes, which was stupid and pointless. But I just can't stand it when your family members bring it up. It hurts so much more than you just thinking it.

I know it's really easy to get pretty depressed really easily. When I had severe acne, I took a 3 week trip to Germany, where practically no one had acne. It came to the point where I told myself that I was going to just enjoy myself and have the best time I possibly could. I held my head up and made eye contact, and I never got any comments about my skin.

I find that you only really get comments about your skin when you act vulnerable and shy. If you're confident, people have more of you to see than just your acne.

Since then, I've cleared up most of the way (thanks to a good diet, and positive attitude!), but even when my skin was still bad, I went out with my friends and had fun. I hung out with them at parks (in direct sunlight-oh no!) and didn't give a crap about it, because they had already accepted me for WHO I AM, and because of that, they could care less about my skin.

So in conclusion, my skin isn't perfect right now (thanks to some diet-cheating, whoops!), but I just don't care. I'm going to do what I can to help my skin when I'm in the bathroom washing my face, and I'm going to eat well for my WHOLE body, but once I leave that bathroom, I am DONE with my skin. It is what it is, and obsessing over it every moment of the day and locking yourself in your home isn't going to do a damn thing to help it, and is bound to actually cause more breakouts.

So get out, guys. Go live. You are beautiful, so let everyone else know too.

Fantastic!

I've seen a vast improvement these past 3 months, hopefully it's only better from here. I am very optimistic about my skin.

To answer the question of this thread, I am going to say that I feel OK about it. Not good, just OK. I have a feeling that I am going to break out with small zits in a week.. Other than that, I am happy that my skin feels very soft. It's not oily, nor it's dry. College starts soon. I pray not to break out. I've decided to go to church from now on. It inspire me!
