I've stuck with it, and acne doesn't make it hard now, but I have had to attend class in the past with a quarter-sized cyst that would not stop oozing. It's disgusting. Literally, so much oil kept coming out that I soaked an entire square of toilet paper just in that one spot. Sorry for the details. Anyway, my desire not to have a life like my parents do outweighs any problems I have with my skin.

I dropped out of my senior year high school because of acne.

Worst decision ever.

I'm now back in school and even though my skin condition is way worse, I learn not to care. I get offended when people stare at my spots than my eye when talking with me.. but I try not to let those things discourage me.

I wouldnt even dare drop out of school.

Every day all my parents say is do well in school, be a doctor. If i said i didnt want to go to school they would be pretty angry.

I dropped out of high school, but it wasn't soley becuase of acne, although it had a good amount to do with it. It was more the fact that I smoked weed all the time and by the time I was suppose to be a junior, I was still a sophmore and I did not want to be the 5 year high school kid. I look back on it now and regret it quite a bit, but live and learn. I'm in college now so I'm not totally screwed.

Dropped out and now working a dead end job,in my case it has nothing to do with acne though, except maybe the dead end job- if i had confidence I'd try to do something with myself but its hard when you're self concious and apathetic - just getting dressed in the morning is a struggle.

There are other stuff that would concern me more than not going to school. Education is important and even if acne does look ugly its not like ppl will make fun of it cause they know it can occur anyone.

No way, the acne I had wasn't really that bad compared to some peoples on here i suppose and my friend had it worse so we were in the same boat. But I enjoyed high school and now college.. and being in education is better than working :razz:
