Sometimes I feel like noone in my family knows the pyscholigical effects of acne like being teased, thinking your unattractive, social situations etc. I don't know if their oblivious or they choose not to care or too busy to take me to the derm, call etc. Whenever my skin gets really worse my mom just says "well no wonder with all the makeup you wear!" I wouldn't have to wear makeup if I didnt have this acne! I don't want people to see it so I wear makeeup to cover it up. Just venting...

I don't think my family cared except my mother. I'd say she was 50% out of 100% though so nothing special.

People aren't capable of caring like we need them to. As soon as we accept that, the better off we'll be. Only God really cares, simply because God is the only one capable.

It's true that it is difficult for people to understand the effects when they haven't experienced it, but it's nice when they can at least try and want to help. It sounds like your family could be more supportive. Have you ever expressed how having acne makes you feel? I don't know if there is a family member you are closer to, but if so, maybe you can approach them first if you haven't already.

Sorry to hear how you're feeling. I know what you mean about make-up. :(
