ACNE..there r always HOPEs...tommorrow never die~

Recommended Posts

ACNE came to you...what a bad bad nightmare for me and you.

Sceptical will cause you social IMPACT. Acne sufferer tend to be depressed, sceptical. They don't want to involve themselves in social activities. They don't want to make new friends, they don't want to face anyone and the most severe can be, they are so so , embarrased to face their own family member.

WHY?..some cried lonely in their room, some thinked about to suicide.....why..ACNE???why ACNE..causes so so much problem for us...but yet..scientific studies that they aren't still appropriate reason why human have ACNE.

My experience to have SEVERE acne problem before the recoveration.

1. I don't like to go outside, facing people, new friends or even girls. I have a good girl friend before the ACNE came to me, she never says something discourage to me, she said it can be cured and teenagers usually have aacne, nothing special. She gave me hopes and strength to BATTLE with acne. However, due to HIGH stress, my acne turned to be severe. She never leave me, she continue to encourage me, saying that she likes me, is not because my appearance but my personality. I was so glad that when you r alone, they are still someone standing beside you, giving you words. It's just similar to a directless ship in the middle of the sea, suddenly you could see a light from the middle of no where, although you still dunno whether it will lead you to danger or safe, but at least you have a direction.

2. I was so sorry for her, because I really afraid that her closest friends will ask her about my problem. I think they will ask ' Hey, why your boyfriend looks like this...', I really afraid that will hurt her so much although she told me she wouldn;t mind. WEll...finally I asked for break up...maybe this is the best solution for me . I still love her till now.although I have recovered, their are still some impact behind.

3. I'm a music composer, I compose song and sell it to earn extra income. I think most of the income I have used it to buy products for my skincare..from the most expensive DERMALOGICA product to BIOMEDIC and so on, my acne didn't improve before I found this site. It helps me so so much. Through this site, I discovered what will aggravate ACNE, and now, I could say that if you call me to explain what is ACNE, how it develops, what medication is the most effective or what that is associated to ACNE, I can explain it ( but not so professionally ) to you.

OKIE...My best wishes to you all...thank you... :wink:

:DI looked back to my photo album just now. Sweet memories kept on coming to me, the photo of myself and her.She is so sweet, always thinking positive for me or to herself.

:D

I is invented, if not..I really don't know how to express my feeling...feel so bad. At least, I don't think to end off my life just like this. I still want my song to be sung by anyone..maybe there's one day, a person will come to me and tell me...'you sang out my feeling too'.Then, it would be a wonderful moment for me.

I'm a greedy guy. I really dare to exchange 10years of my life in order to get clear complexion..no ACNE on your face. Initially, the person will look in your eye, but the ZIT will gain her attention and you will end up with her asking about'HEY....you have a ZIT '..that's is so embarrassed for myself.

Got to go now..god bless you all..

cheers..there r always HOPES.

for me only about 4 months ago I had acne pretty bad for a while... since I was maybe 15 until now i'm 21. I followed Dan's regimen to the letter and even when my face was getting worse on it people here kept telling me to stay with it... it can take up to 6 months, ok 4 months down the road its finally working. No new breakouts at all... It is very hard to describe the feeling I have when I have a clear face cause I feel so happy and relieved.

I too would cry sometimes, I felt like talking to noone, I could never face any girls, and I felt like crap all the time. Now I feel so much better about myself and I actually feel like living.

To tell you the truth I think that acne has made me a better person, I just don't look at a person and look at their looks only. What matters is whats inside and when I hear people say "man she's ugly" and "geez that guys face looks like crap" it makes me so sad, especially when people deliberately go out of their way to embarass someone who already feels bad about themselves. But hey I guess thats the way the world is today and its a shame.

Keep fighting and don't let anyone get you down, even though its not easy.

After having acne, I have learned how to concern people around meself. Caring about other's feeling b'cos that's the only way I can present myself to them. Hopefully they wouldn't mind to know the me from outside but from inside. That's why we have this board, we battled together against acne, we share our tears and joys...we are forever friends...now, tomorrow until die... :wink:

god bless you all,

cheers,

I'm not sure what to say, but you garkee and sierra are great people. And most of the people on this message board along with other message boards are great people (there are a few who aren't cuz they are rude to peoples feelings). Eventhough I hate acne now.....eventhough I hate myself now......eventhough I TOO would trade some years of my life for blemish-free skin......acne is turned me into what I am now and what I will be tomorrow. When I see people with different problems or what not I don't look at them and say rude things about them.......that is how we have been raised...our friends.....other peers....they are the influences to us to make us be rude and ignorant to other people. But me having to battle a problem of my own makes me the better person above those friends and peers who only thing a person is made on the outside. What super-ficial people.

Me too......I stay home a LOT.....I have no job right now......I am currently not going to college.......I have no girlfriend......and yes, I don't even like to see my own family at times. BUT, like I said, acne has basically created who I am today. The last few months and even the last few years I have realized what's important in life and that's family and then that someone to share life with. I'm being as optimistic as I can be right now that I may win this battle with acne soon, real soon. It's toyed with my emotions so much it's hard to control myself at times. Well, I feel like i'm kind of rambling on so i'll end it now.....cheers to you all

Thank you Shawn for posting up his feelings.

I was glad to have a couple to internet-mate to share the feelings of having acne. We all hope and battled acne for years and years and years. Acne , is it similar to AIDs? But as I know, if you have AIDs, and if you didn't tell anyone about it..they wouldn't know it by looking at you. But Acne..they dun ever need to ask..they just get the answer from your appearance.

I'm currently having my final pre-U exam. Phuh...maybe next year, I'll gona further my studies to anywhere. Just feeling sceptical to know new friends,because the first impression is so essential to make friends. Hopefully, my red marks and brown spots will heal very soon. god bless you all...

cheers,

The first impression is what can usually make or break a relationship. The last thing you wanna worry about when meeting someone is your face. Ahhhhhh.....how I took for granted the years I had clear skin....SHAME ON ME! But as my skin is doing better and better it's getting so much easier to meet people. Sure i'm not clear yet...but i'm just waiting for that day I can look in the mirror and I don't see any zits looking back at me.....KEEP THE FAITH!!!

I have the problem of not socialising with girls because of my acne, and I'd really like to trade a few yrs of my life for gd skin. I started to have problems with acne since I was 15, now I'm 19 and I still breakout, although not as bad as it was.

Does the regime really work? I mean I'm living in singapore, can the products listed by Dan be bought here?

As bro garkee stated that some products costs a bomb, like dermalogica and doesn't work that well, its a gd S$70 for a 2 oz medicated gel, sheesh.

One more thing, so what if acne doesn't come back. I have lots of scars which is the worst part of it all. Would you guys go for laser treatments?

i totally relate to what sierra said..i feel that acne to me is not a curse but rather god's way of making me a better person...since i know what it feels like to feel ugly and afraid of what other people think of me when they see me i am totally compassionate to other people's feelings..i never make judgements on people on their looks because i dont want them doing that to me..

Thank you for L, helpme and tranceownz to leave words in this article.

I have been a long time didn't post up in this messageboard for this section . Busy for all the time. I believe that acne didn't only cause a physical problem for us but also a massive internal impact for us. You don;t want a person point here and there on your face and continue with those words..' look at his/her skin, so ugly, like a toad skin '. Well, you and I will feel so sad when you hear someone saying that.

In my opinion, we should be more concern about our surrounding but not feel too sceptical when having acne. Don't ever listen to others people view because they said that without using their brain~.If they experience what we got, they will be so shameful about what they have said.

I have been trying so many acne products for years and I believe I can use my collection of various acne medication or products to develop a acne-museum for public view. Dermalogica is the most expensive product I bought,I even have to tight my stomach to have money to buy those products but they didn';t help much. I used proactiv® for 2 years but can't afford it anymore.

Okie..thank you all for you ...sharing your views and thought .again, thank you so much~

i am really touched by your post. However, I have been trying everything and nothing has been working..i am so desperate to try anything now.

I have found this website maintained by this guy named alex chiu claims a world of benefits. Testimonials have seemed near miraculous. I myself am skeptical of such nonsense but he even offers free products. A guy in the testimonials claims that his acne and scars were cleared by this and well as a wealth of other benefits.

i pray that this will do wonders and will work

Phew.....I have a feeling that I was inside myself now. I was glad that I could share my thoughts and my words with you all. This messageboard is another home for me and hopefully for you too.

Thank you for all of you, sending back feedbacks and willing to share it with me. I'm a very quiet guy in the real life but when I came here, I felt that I TALKed more than usual. Maybe it's because I prefer to share my thoughts by using words instead of air.

I was persuaded to come out with a book about acne from a local chinese publisher.They said one of their employer visited this site and noticed my postups and co-incidently I was from Malaysia also. They emailed me and called me out for negogiation. I really hope that I could come out with a book that could jot down my experiences and opinions. I told them that maybe my book would earn them a fortune because in my mind, it would be more essential if one day, there's a person that came upon me , and told me that my book really helped him/her a lot.Thank you..

sincerely,

garkee2002 :roll:

i wish there were more people in the world like you guys, it's terrible that the world can be so superficial at times (myself included).

I can relate to what you're saying; i have asked myself countless of times, questions like 'what have i done to deserve acne?' 'why must i have the acne gene in me?' 'why do some people remain perfectly flawless even though they don't take care of their skin?'. I don't feel like going out of the house and chose to spend time on the computer instead -- at least people can't see how you look like from the computer right? haha. I even refuse to look at my reflection whenever i pass a mirror sometimes, even though i always used to when i didn't have acne.

I was on doxycycline once, and it worked really well for me but a year after i stopped i broke out again so i'm on it again. It's been a month, and i still don't see much results. But i guess there's nothing i can do but just hang on and be strong -- i'd rather be positive while having acne then be depressed while having acne. Keep the faith, people! Hang on there and don't let the world get you down. Like garkee said, tomorrow never dies~ :(

Finally I return to this forum that I left almost 3 years. I am not sceptical anymore of having acne. I have just graduated and still seeking for a job. During several job interviews, I understand that a humble and sweet smile will warm up the environment rather than concerning the interviewer was starring on your face.

Life goes on. Superman returns is going to on screen soon. I am anticipating that. I almost forget this forum but I recall it back as I still remember that when I nearly lost myself 3 years before due to acne, ACNE.ORG found me and it did not leave me alone. It provides me a mean to speak and to share.

May this forum sustains forever!
