Giving in to Acne and accepting life as a freak

Recommended Posts

First let me preface this by saying FUCK platitudes and naivety. Every time someone on this forum tells someone "things will get better!" or "looks only matter if you're shallow!" they are doing people a great disservice.  

What my 24 years with Acne has taught me is that

1) looks DO matter more than anything else in lfie

2) there is no known cure for Acne

3) Every single acne scar treatment method is a different scam. Acne scars are for life and there is no fighting or reducing it. 

 

With that being said, I'm giving up. I'm going to waste away the rest of my life alone because I'm tired of people judging me and staring at my scars. As silly as it sounds, everything in this life comes down to how you look..denying this is pure naivety. Its the same as when poor people say "money doesn't matter". It's just dumb, we all know money and looks matter and those that don't have it just make things up to tell themselves in order to cope with it. I don't care about anything anymore because why should I? Nothing matters or means anything in this world and having Acne on top of those facts is debilitating. I rather have cancer or some other fatal disease, at least it will kill you. 

Fuck acne, and fuck this website because it doesn't do anything for those with acne anyway. The acne.org regimen is a fucking joke and is akin to saying "Just use Proactive!" Yeah sure, whatever. Peace.

You are simply WRONG in everything.

First of all, there is no other place but this forum that you will find people trying to help themselves and always bringing new information regarding acne and acne scars. THERE IS PEOPLE IN THIS FORUM DOING WATER FASTING LOGS so dont try to vitimize yourself here because everyone here is fucked and not crying like you.

1) looks DO matter more than anything else in life < this is so dumb that im not even arguing about that.

2) there is no known cure for Acne < There is no known cure but there is known 100% of acne remission with regimens and accutane.


3) Every single acne scar treatment method is a different scam. Acne scars are for life and there is no fighting or reducing it.  < srlsy? if you look around in this forum you gonna found alot of studies proving the efficacy of alot of treatments like subcision, skin needling, TCA peels, alot of member logs, ALOT ALOT of stuff regarding sucessful scar treatments 

and the one and only  great disservice for this community are people like you that disseminate missinformation and no hope for people that can improve their acne situation.

if you really trust your words (which means you are out of your mind) get out of this forum because last thing people need is an pessimistic illusory person and everyone including you can improve their situation, you will gonna see it in future and will agree with me in every point.

Meh....I hate acne with a flaming passion, but I am not giving up. I have some scars that I hate even more than the acne, still not giving up. Maybe you can't get rid of scars completely, but they can be improved. When I look at my skin and it looks awful, I try to tell myself, well, I can at least get it to look better than this eventually. I'd be happy if I can get to a place where I don't cringe when I look in the mirror, and I still have hope that I can do that. I have accepted my skin won't ever be what it used to be...I'd just be OK with better.

As far as looks matter more than anything else, that may be true for you but it isn't for me. My children and family are much more important. For instance, I'd rather have shitty skin than to lose one or both of my kids, even as much as my bad skin makes me feel depressed, it isn't THE most important thing in my life. You may feel differently, and that's OK, but that is not true for all of us.

 

I get it, though. You need to vent, and I feel like that sometimes, too. I think to myself I'd rather die than live with this skin, it's never going to get better, I'm stuck looking like shit for life, but I will still pick myself up again and find some small bit of hope and keep trying, because really that's all I have when it comes to my skin, it keeps me going, and I really do believe I can make things better in time. Again, not perfect, just better. Nothing in my life is perfect, anyway.

Perspective is a helluva thing.  When we are stuck in the same negative thought pattern over and over and over again, it is hard to think of the possibility that things could ever be different  (i've been dealing with acne for 16 of my 32 years so i've been through it).  With that said,EVERYONE in life is dealing with something.   Illness, unemployment, mental illness, etc.  So we are not alone in our struggle.  Instead of painting yourself as a victim, look at your experience as one of many trials that we all go through.

 

In regards to looks, yes they are important to many people.  BUT, the people that should matter (family, loved ones) won't care.   This is where it pays to love you and not depend on outside reinforcement for your boost. 

 

It's unfortunate that you are not able to see the positivities of this website but i get it....you're hurt, frustrated, and probably tired of it all. 

 

My only advice to you is to not give up and sell yourself short.  Your acne may go away or it may linger long term but there is life even with acne.  Throughout my struggles. i've:

 

had relationships

earned 2 college degrees

moved up the career ladder

made great friends

 

I still am struggling, bad, but i'm making the most out of my life and so should you

we that have really bad acne have all been in this same state of mind wherw you feel alone and helpless, boo hoo another cliche bitchfit moment, just suck it up and quit moping like a little girl , adapt and focus more on something other then ur precious skin, if ur gonna be negative , I'll ill tell u straight up to grow a fucking pair and quit being a little bitch and get ue head out of your ass .........if you want to be blunt then this is the truth , think of all these pretty beautiful people that have thier own bs problems , imagine being pretty and having to go through life not trusting people because all they want to do is get in your pants, and you cant even tell if they really care or dont  behind thier plastic smiles, life is more then being pretty the sooner u realize the better , so chin up , nut up or shut up ....happy new year ( sorry for being mean)

I'm sorry for you that you seem to believe your looks and your acne dictate you are. They simply don't. My friend this is a forum for encouragement- I appreciate and respect your opinion, but I believe you're wrong.

When we're feeling depressed about our skin and life we have to be careful not to make generalizations  or see things as being so "black and white." We don't want to be naive about our situation but its not helpful to take negativity to the extreme. 

I mean yes looks do matter alot in our society but they arent everything. My acne brings me alot of pain and sadness but i try to find some small things in life worth living for.

And i'm certainly not giving up on finding a cure for acne. Some people do manage to clear their skin and for the rest of us still suffering who really knows what medical break throughs will happen in the future. I dont think i'm being naive, i'm being realistic.
