You KNOW its bad when you took a month off facebook just to not put yourself down in comparisson.

When you cant even undestand why your boyfriend would even be attracted to you.

When you cry on the drive home after briefly running into someone you know.

When you miss birthdays/gatherings because of your acne and even though you dont want to lie, a lie warrants less pity than the truth.

When all you do is cry to your friend who has suffered with acne for 10 years and has had to go on accutane and you say "yours wasnt even that bad!!" (when apparently it was)

When you dont look people in the eyes anymore, at all.

When you pull up to stop lights and then look to your right or left and think "YES I HAVE ACNE YES I KNOW PLEASE DONT LOOK"

When you feel like everyone will think youre just dirty

When you yell at people who call into your work for no reason and then develop a reputation for being a jerk on the phone.

When you plan about 3 outings on the same day just to avoid having to build up courage more than once.

When you realize that its a condition and not a choice.

When you seriously think Daniel kern is THE best person in the world, OVER anyone else including OBAMA (blah).

When you wonder if you saw Dan if you would run up to him and cry and thank him.

When you the words "stupid acne" is a part of your every day vocab.

When you feel physically TIRED from TRYING to cope.

When you stop going to see your parents even though they are old and should be visited more often.

When you justify doing the above because of stupid acne.

When you tell your friend who just beat cancer "i am too depressed to go out" - i feel like such a jerk, but i really cant do it.

That is all!

You come up with situations in your head that you can blame your sadness on, even though in the end, you know its your acne.

Wow I can't believe almost all of these are spot on with me.

-When you try to get to class early so you don't have to walk in with lots of people staring at you.

-When you check out your face through your cellphone in class.

-When you hate eating fried or greasy foods because it feels really gross on your face.

-When you avoid looking people in the eyes.

-When you hate being in the sunlight or very bright lights, because it shows the worst of your face.

-When you sit in the back of the class, so nobody can see you.

-When you've never had a girlfriend, because you think it's hardly worth trying.

-When you look into the mirror for a long time and try to convince yourself it's not as bad as you think.

Etc... I really like that I found this thread. Seems I'm in good company.

When you read this entire thread

When you read dermatology books

When you record a video of your face using your shitty camera phone and watch it before school to convince yourself you look good because it doesn't show any of the spots.

When your parents remind you to use your medicine even though there's no way you'd forget

When you look through old pictures of yourself with clear skin

When a new zit goes unnoticed because there are already so many

When you read all the posts from this thread and chuckle because of how spot on they are.

When you regret cutting your long hair because now your acne can't be covered because the hairstylist obviously didn't listen to you.

You're face feels heavy from too much product.

You wish you're the joker so you can wear facepaint all day.

When you're talking to someone, and you see their eyes move around your face, and you think they're staring at your skin.

When your acne clears up, and you cover your PIH with makeup, but feel like people can tell what's under there.

When you're going into the bathroom so many times a day to check your reflection, that if there were cameras installed in the school, the security people would think you have a really, really bad bladder problem.

When you don't tie your hair back.

When a guy with perfect skin is staring at you/complimenting you/etc. and you can't tell what they see in you because you're too self-conscious about your skin.

When you worry that PIH will never go away.

When, even in your dreams, you have acne, and even want to avoid the people in your dream.

When you take a day off school for acne, and then feel riddled by guilt all day.

When you're almost scared to look in the car mirror, and you spend 5-10 minutes just convincing yourself to look in the mirror, only to see your skin and feel like it looks gross.

When you apply layers and layers of concealer.

When you don't even want to go shopping/out with friends/ to the mall anymore.

When the idea of family vacations, especially when staying at someone's house, (the chances of being caught without makeup are pretty high!) scares you.

When you sleep on your arms so that your face won't touch the pillow, and when you wake up during the night, you check to make sure your face isn't on the pillow.

When you look at people with perfect skin and feel envious.

when smearing milk of goddamn magnesia all over your face seemed like it was the cure to all your problems

when you have nightmares about acne

when you call your friend and she says, `hey, not much is up, just watching game shows and picking my acne`
