when your dad is shouting at you telling you all this washing is becoming obsessive.

when your standing in front of the mirror at 1/2 inch closeness looking for something to pick or that white head clogged pore to squeeze.

when you look and analyse everyone else's face around you and they seem pretty perfect.

when you wish that the marks you just made would hurry up and heal

when you spend 8-9 times a day looking into a mirror.

when you skip meeting a friend cause you feel and look like total shit

continue..

You feel like you're a prisoner in your own body.

Your mind rejects any thoughts of social contact.

when your sister (a sister you get along with) asks you to be a bridesmaid in her wedding, and you want to say no just because of your face. tho u know she'd be grateful, yet all you can think about is wanting to hide from the cameras.

when acne treatments take up all the room on your sink.

when you're at an event, n you're trying to hide out in the restroom until the sun goes down because you can't stand natural light. once you do come out, someone asks you where the hell have you've been n you quickly come up with a lie.

when you have the feeling of losing who you are because you're always thinking about your skin.

...when the first thing you do when you get home from school is cry until you fall asleep...every single day.

...when you need to go to therapy.

(This is in reference to my middle school years.)

When you think the burnt pepperoni pizza you have just taken out the oven would make an ideal mask for those "special occasions".

When you can play connect the dots with your spots...

When you have to wake up a half hour earlier than usual just so that you can stare at your face in the mirror and convince yourself that it's okay before you go out...

I know! Even with gentle cleansers and stuff my face looks so red and irritated afterward. Now throw shaving into the mix and you have yourself a disaster.

You know it's bad when you are out with your friends and you always try to seat in shadow of something so that your buddies don't notice your acne that much....
