I’m fed up with having acne!! Right now my face is covered and I mean COVERED in everything acne related. Ranging from blackheads, to whiteheads to full blown cysts. There’s not one area of my face that doesn’t accompany a blemish of some sort. I honestly just don’t know what to do! I’m writting this to hopefully relieve some of my frustration. If you don’t have acne, you just wouldn’t be able to relate or understand how one can feel so hopeless and so uncomfortable. It’s absolutely embarrasing! 
I wouldn’t consider myself a vain person, I just simply have no patience or tolerance for the state of my skin right now. It affects almost every aspect of my life, my confidence is non existent, I have no social life and am always anxious being in public places.

If you’re reading this and going through the same thing emotionally and physically, I would love to hear your thoughts on the matter. We can all deal with this together because right now I’m feeling quite alone.

You are not alone. I can definitely relate. I have been dealing with this madness for more than 5 years now. It has defined my life ever since. I also have 0 friends and my social life is non existent. In couple of months I will finish college and I can't imagine dealing with this at work. I mean no one, who goes to work has acne, it's going to be so embarrassing. My life is super boring and if I want to do something different and go for example on a trip, I have basically 2 options. Go alone, and not talk about it with anyone, or not go at all. I have never attended any party, or even kissed a girl. When I see my peers enjoying their life I feel really depressed. Like they've got something for free, which they take for granted and can do whatever they want. On the other hand I struggle even with the most basic things with social anxiety, which I developed from acne.

Exactly! It’s so frustrating how something can affect your life in so many ways. Unfortunately we are our own worst critics and people probably don’t even notice your acne at first glance anyway. I would say try not to worry about it but I know that’s easier said than done. I should probably start listening to my own advice for once. I know that life is far too short to worry about things like acne (especially since there’s so many terrible things happening in the world these days) but acne is something you can’t always escape from. It’s easy to fall into the trap of anxiety and crappy confidence.........we’re only human! I hope that things improve for you, good luck!

Find a derm that will give you accutane. Also look into home made kefir and beet juice powder. Everything else is like a band aid other than accutane.
