im gonna use concealer, for my pih, and enjoy being with my family as i dont get to see them that often.
i dont go out without concealer these days anyway
I know I feel kinda weird during the holidays with the relatives,with acne.But it won't disappear in time for xmas,so I'll just use makeup to cover it up.Or maybe I'll just show everyone my lovely acne.Better for me,I don't really want to feel like I have a mask on.
It won't bother me, My relatives have all seen me when it was at a very serious degree, so now it's ok.
It's not going to effect me that much. I spend Christmas with just the immediate family, so no relatives coming in who haven't seen me in a year going "Oh.. aren't you.. looking pretty.." My great aunt always tells me how gorgeous I am when she sees me though Last time she nearly flipped over my legs. "Ahh! Look how long and gorgeous her legs are! What a beautiful girl!" Nice aunt.
As for New Year's, that is a different story. I get to moon over how I'm starting another year full of acne. Woopy.
I tried mentioning dermatologists to my mom today.. but she didn't really catch on. Whenever I mention my acne she brushes it aside and tries to tell me I barely have it. I'm not stupid, I can face the truth. I know she's trying to make me feel better, but it's not going to get better if she just keeps ignoring it.
Should be a laugh. I think my family are now used to it now and so am I so I probably won't be worrying too much about it.
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year everyone!
I'm going to be with my family during christmas, so I can have a green mask on my face and feel comfortable around them..heh
i'm going to stay home...my aunt and both grammas are coming over...good thing it's not a huge gathering.
last Christmas i went shopping for new eye make-up and a new outfit for Christmas...but since my skin is bad this Christmas, i don't feel like putting in the effort. i have no energy for that because i don't feel good about my appearance. it's not worth it if my skin's going to be a punk ass. just gonna put on some sweats...
on that cheerful note, happy holidays
i love you, Toddy.
Christmas I'm going to be home with the family which is more depressing than if I was with friends. Everytime my sister comes over all she does is talk about my acne wihich makes me depressed, and she just tells me how i must be doing something wrong for it to be so bad. You would think family would be more supportive, but apparently not in my family. The other problem I'm dealing with is telling this guy Ive dated a few times i can't go on this overnighter with him christmas eve. It sounded like a blast too snowcaving with dutch oven cooking, but no way I'd go without my makeup. Ok i'm done with my rambling it's just so much to vent about.
tell your sister to back the hell off! geeziz. this is mean, but if anyone ever says anything about my skin, i bring up what they're most insecure about. it shuts them right up!
It will but playing HALO2 will make me forget all dis shit for awhile.
thats the spirit
i used to get family frinds asking what was wrong with my face, to my face, or whispering to my parents (even when i was in the same room).
|Good thing that doesn't happen anymore
Am getting better, barely broke out last two weeks. Maybe I get a very nice gift for christmas . Mmm probably am foolin myself .
lol Grandparents are the worst, and they always talk about your acne at the top their voice, and of course they know absolutely nothing about acne but feel obliged to impart their misguided wisdom anyway
" Its your blood changing, thats what it is lad"
"If you wash your face and stop eating chocolate it will go away"
"You've got a lot of zits, sonny"
"You want to get out in the fresh air, get some sun on your face"
WTF!? as if I didn't already know i had a zit, and by them shouting it at the top of their voice will make me realise I do have one and it will magically dissapear.
it sure will effect my xmass, seeing family that i havent seen for a year or so.
but ill hold my head up high and smile
....and just see how things pan out
geordie thats funny, old folks sure are clueless.
