Today I realized I'm a freak. My family is having a get together/party or whatever and everybody is showing up with their friends and gfs and their all having a good ass time laughing and enjoing themselves getting to know each other and I'm hiding in my room like a worthless peice of shit. Like a fuckin monster trapped in a cage as I can just hear them having a good time and I look in the mirror and feel like just dying. My family had just sort of accepted the fact that I'm a freak they don't ask me to come out cause they know I don't belong I'm a fuckin outcast. So as I sit here rolling my last joint I ask Myself wutafuck have I become? A fuckin freak. Anybody else feel like a freak

Ditto bro..... alot of us do....my dad yelled at me the other day for being such a "girl" because only girls care about the way they looked .....I got so fucking pissed.... be weary about the herb though....It fucks up your acne.....not alot but still.

I am the opposite. My parents wouldn't let me hide away. It was tough but I think it actually helped me face things when I just don't want to leave my room.

But in family get togethers I'm the only one with a problem with my skin. When I go out into town with friends I can't see anyone with acne or bad scars like mine. So yea, I feel like a freak all the time too. Mostly when I catch a look at my scars in the mirror.

I try not to let acne get the better of me. I just forget how I look and socialise, Being a freak is not what u are, its who u are. It may sound cheesy but its true. I have a very serious case of acne but i still go out whenever i can, ppl enjoy your company no matter what u look like. If you keep hiding away because of acne, people will begin to think that you've lost interest in them. Best advice I can give you is to go out more, smile, think positive and be happy. It's easier said than done but give it a try.

Dude I did the same thing back when I was 19 and had HORRIBLE skin. I would just sit in my room when company would come over and just cry. No joke. My skin cleared up 100% and I had a great life. Then my skin broke out with some different issues and Im sort of back to where I was. I dont live with my parents anymore, but I still deal with the hiding factor. I would personally cut out the weed. Its only going to make your skin worse. I know it did for me. Second of all have you seen a derm? And your parents dont ask you to come out of your room because they know that you wont. My parents stopped asking me too. If your going to hide in your room, cool, enjoy it. But get on a skin care regiment from your derm and start taking care of YOURSELF so you can start to leave your room and socialize. Eat healthy, de- stress, do what it takes.

same here! my mum will literally drag me out to dinner with the family or to family get togethers. She thinks its vain that I don't want to go out because of acne which is a total joke. I always end up going to family get togethers but end up having fun with my cousins and realise no one is actually paying attention to my acne as much as I do

You are NOT a freak. I know it's difficult but you cannot let acne get the best of you; you just can't.

You aren't the only person in the world with acne, so you aren't alone in this. I understand being embarrassed about having acne. I first started developing acne at 11 years old! I was the only person in my whole class who had acne. I felt like a 'freak' and so out of place.

But now that I've gotten older, I realized I can't let acne control me, and my life. My acne is clearing up a lot but even before, I learned that clear skin or not, I can't hide from the world.

So please, don't let this take over you. Go out, enjoy life. Hang with friends. Go to the family get togethers. Letting acne control you is so not worth it. I wish you luck.

Agreed.. even if I am clear, this happens to me.. I can't enjoy myself, I don't go to parties, no where.. I just stay home.. Acne and no acne is the same to me.

Just the I don't stare at people in the eyes if I have acne. ;\

I knew I would break out because what I eat and what i apply on my skin is pulling out the toxins to the skin. It is cleansing. I went all raw and stopped applying BP. I was ready for this anyways.. it isn't severe.. I would say mild, but have some red marks. I will break out more, but w.e! I hope once I stop breaking out, then no more acne! sick.gif I think it is worth it.. I didn't wanna apply BP for the rest of my life.. I gotta let all the toxins out.. sick.gif

I am trying my best not to let my pimples bleed because sometimes it bleeds. I have to be careful because I don't want new scars.
