*when you know your Detmatologist's number by heart.

*when you spend 24hrs a day contemplating on the "if had clear skin, I'd..." scenario.

*when you take about 6 different pills a day JUST for acne.

*when you honestly don't want to live anymore.

THAT is when you know it's truly bad.

when you know accutane is the only thing that legit works.

...when even accutane doesn't work. Edited by DearCasey01

when you can't leave the house without makeup to cover your scars.

when you don't want to hang out with your friends during the day or in natural lighting even if you have a shit ton of makeup on.

When...

-You don't have many friends left because you've cancelled plans so many times.

-You cancel appointments with derms because you feel so insecure with someone looking at your skin up close and personal.

-You constantly check mirrors to see if things have changed.

-You don't look forward to birthdays because it's another year that has gone without anything changing.

-You avoid bright lights like a plague.

I could go on forever...

The holistic practitioner emails you and states that your particular case is more complicated than he anticipated and offers to refund you.

Yup...it happened to me.

Hi everyone, so wow I cannot believe that I started this post 4 years ago or that its had over 390 replies, moreover I can now look back and realise that actually this post is quite negative, although humorous in some respects that we can all relate with one another on various aspects.

So the reason I am posting here now 4 years later on my own thread is because I have started a blog, I think it may be of interest...

feel free to check it out, I have literally just started it now and I am excited to get feed back and hopefully make some changes for everyone and myself. the link is as follows >

A thought crosses your mind of changing your religion so you can wear attire that shows only your eyes.

You still view yourself as the pimple-faced girl even through you're acne-free...

You realize you've had acne longer than most of the people on here have been alive lol

I've met some pretty cool people on here...it's good to connect with people who understand

Solidarity! :)

.....all you think about all day is lighting and how it makes your acne scars look.
.....you always blush when talking to people because acne and acne scars have taken away all of your self worth and you hate yourself now.
.....you look in the mirror all the time to see if your acne and scars look better
.....you realize that the last two years have been spent worrying about acne and scars

Oh man, acne and acne scars are a real pain
