Has this section actually helped anyone?

Recommended Posts

Um, it's callled venting, just sayin'.

Venting is extremely important. Why do you think people have therapists? To keep everything bottled up inside? This forum acts as a therapist - you can pour out your thoughts, feelings, and whatever else you've been holding in, and get the support and advice you need. If there's something horrible about that, then I guess I'm not a very bright person.

This section goes through phases. Sometimes people seem to congregate and just feel sorry for themselves and don't accept advice for getting a better attitude or self-esteem. Sometimes there are a large number of very supportive people who understand, support and provide a safe haven for others to share the emotional ups and downs of acne. Usually the latter prevails, thank goodness!

This forum exists because there are indeed emotional and psychological effects of acne and this is as I stated a 'safe haven'. We sometimes may not understand WHY someone is so upset about their acne when everything else in the life is peachy-keen, but we can still lend a supportive ear and helping typing fingers (so to speak).
