Meanest thing that someone has said about your acne

Recommended Posts

I started getting spots when i was about 10, and i remember a lad who fancied me called me 'spotty' cos i wouldnt go out with him. haha. then he tried apologising and felt terrible cos he liked me. I said i didnt care. But it did hurt my feelings.

Another was from a lad who i was mates with. Dunno how it came about. I think he was in one of his playful yet offensive moods, and said i was as "spotty as a cheater"

Made me cry. I was about 10. You know when you can feel your eyes welling up and try your best to not cry, then all of a sudden you cant help but burst into tears? well that happened. The lad felt bad when i cried, and my friend had a go at him. The teacher even asked if i was ok but i didnt tell him why i was crying.

And lastly, a lad that really liked me for 2yrs or so, decided to call me 'spotty' when we got to secondary school. He had a special name for me but ive forgot it now. I just know it was nasty.

Well...after a while he began strolling into school with a forehead full of spots.

I secretly smiled :P

I didn't think my face was that bad but I went into Walgreens to get Shaving Cream and this little girl made this face to her mom and mom nodded. Maybe it wasn't to me, but bothered the shit out of me. I did the classic hand through the hair and head done while standing in line. I felt like walking up to her and saying "If you got any better ideas, please tell me Princess".

1) Waiting in a restsurant to go to the toilet, I'm in front of this little girl, and I smile at her. Then she looks at me and starts going "buck buck buck buck!" like a chicken. I freeze, realising she thinks I have chicken pox. Sounds funny now but it was shit.

2) I was fucking 11 years old, and this teenage boy with a girl pass me in the street, and he says to me " How was the car crash?" That really hurt me, especially as i was quite young for m age. If i knew who he was, i would go and fucking beat the shit out of him now.

theres more worse stuff but i dont want to get into it cos it would bore yall

Well...

"Whats that on your face, you should buy PROACTIVE."- random little kid.

"Pizza face, crater face, red face."

When in school we were giving each person in class a random disease, I got small pox.

People never really want to take pictures with me, not that I want to.

People staring, dam I hate this one.

But all this use to happen more when i was younger. The name calling has subsided now that I am older. I think i am the one who makes myself feel bad, because I am no where near confident.

"Why is your face all red" - my sister

"What's that on your face?" - random kid pointing to a cyst

"You skin looks better!" - said loudly by my aunt at a restaurant with all my extended family

"You use too many products, that's why you break out" - my mom

Wow, I just finished reading all these posts (it actually took the duration of three days to get through them all, but I was determined to read each and every one) and it really is just awful. I've gotten a lot of stares and can't possibly imagine what cruel things people must say about me behind my back, but the worst I've had was "your skin looks bad", said by just random people at school. It didn't bother me too much because it was directed towards the dryness of my skin that day; I overused Retin-A and I was peeling and the moisturizer wasn't helping. Some people have no courtesy at all. A lot of you have been through experiences that would have completely broke me down; especially Allykat's story about the acne foundation her classmates set up for her. I'm really sorry about that Ally, that's a horrible thing to have to go through. They have no class whatsoever. Even if I had clearer skin than professionally airbrushed photos, I could never imagine breaking someone apart like the assholes many of you have met.

I truly believe that the world is a morbid place. :(

"Wow you are such a f*** face!" at school. It hurt. Bad.

Also, when, for example, someone got splatted on the face with a pie on TV, and there's like stuff all over his face, my sister (who's four) points and says "That's like Matthew! (my name)".

I'm over it now though...

Back before my first course of Accutane, in like 7th grade, I went through puberty before any of my friends and my acne was BAD while no one else had even a mark yet. This one kid used to call me "barnacles" because my scabbed acne looked like barnacles on a boat i guess. All my friends at the time used to laugh along too. One of the little fuckers even wrote it in my yearbook. Most of them ended up never getting laid and were huge losers, and my acne cleared up after the Accutane. So suck on that, bitches.

"woahhh acne problem" well that isnt the worst but i was like standing in a line to wash my hands at school and the girl ahead turned around and just said that. it caused me to pick at my face the entire next class period grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

"yo pimple face" actually i dont really mind that that much but still it kinda hurts.

"u know more sugar will cause u to have more acne" some chick at this party thingy my school was having and i was on a sugar rush COMPLETELY HAPPILY until she hadda go and say that and make me depressed.

"Abby do u have aids???" some girl in my 6th hour

"you need proactive" one guy in my first hour who was just joking around with everyone. but still that hurt

"yeah and u have it everywhere!" my friend. one of my friends was freaking out because of one little unnoticable friggen zit and she was all i get alot of zits on my chin. and my friend said she got alot on her cheeks and i said i got alot everywhere and then one of them said that. grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr people suck!!!!

and the sad thing is basically everytime somone says something about my acne im usually feeling pretty good about it because usually im using a new product and my face looks clearer....or atleast i think it does until somone says something.

i've got a good one ... i think we've determined by this point that kids are the worst. i work with young children at a church, and with middle schoolers and high schoolers at a refugee services program. the little kids just always ask why i have purple on my face (the color of acne under a layer of foundation :) ). the high school students' mothers are always wanting to talk to me about my skin because their kids 'didn't have bad skin until they came to america' (their kids also weren't teenagers then) - they want to know what i've done wrong, so they can avoid it. the MIDDLE SCHOOL KIDS repeatedly made fun of me in mai mai (their language) - we knew what they were saying because they would gesture to their faces and mine, making little pointing motions. my supervisor and their girl scout leader caught on to it and gave them a lecture, then made each of them come apologize to me in front of everybody ... MORTIFYING. i'm 27, and none of the 13 - 20 year olds i work has any skin issue comparable to mine.

Being in High School is the worst.

"You have face cancer"

"Your face looks like A WW2 battlefield"

That last one actually made me laugh, but it is somewhat true lol.

Classroom :

Girl to me :

"Start washing your face you pimple-headed freak"

I walk to the girl and give her a brutal slap on the ckeek and say :

"Look who's talking, you got rosacea!"

From complete strangers:

"You should try proactiv."

"Drink lots of water." (I was drinking gallons of water a day, probably even too much.)

"Hey, your acne looking SO much better today! It's quite astounding, really. For a while it was getting pretty bad there."

"Oh dear - are you - are you on the pill?"

One time as I walked downstairs in the morning, in High School, my father stopped and said, "Amanda, I just feel like I should let you know - your skin really doesn't look good today." I gave him the look of death and left without saying goodbye. He's felt very bad about this ever since. :redface:

I asked my boyfriend one time, "Is my skin really that bad?" hoping he would tell me he thought I was pretty anyway, or something nice.

And he replied "Well... I mean, it's not like it's really attractive."

:confused: There's something wrong with the men in my life.

Probaly the worst thing said to me about my acne was like

"Pimple Boy"-From my little cousin who is 8 but i always get back with a couple punches

Then my cousin pulled out some toner and his skin is nice but what made it worst was that he said "you should get this, its a lil something for the ladies."

The worst thing i think are the things not said because they just stare at you. thats the worst!

the worst has to have been what this homophobic happyflowers said. I had to have 5 classes with her last school year. She has never really liked me, and I am not quite sure why because i normally say nothing to her. It is not just dislike but in fact I have always recieved lots of rudeness from this girl when in fact i am quite nice to her when i can tell she is feeling depressed and I compliment her sometimes. She has pretty good skin and is an averagely attractive girl.

But one day during our last period we had to work together on something and she was giving me a bitchier attitude than she would normally have with me. I was completely FED UP with it so I took a deep breathe and said, "Why do you have to be like this? I dont even do anything to you to make you so mad and you always seem to have a problem with me? For real, tell me why you hate me so much."

Soo.. the bitch goes... "Your annoying, no one likes you, you wont admit your gay, your face is infected with acne, and your ugly." She said it rather loudly and some of the class heard it. Luckily there was some talking in the room but it didnt stop it from going significantly quieter in the desks around us.

Well.. ive never had the desire to hit a girl as much as I had then... My eyes went red.. I just saw red and wanted to smack her HARD. Instead I actually stood up in my desk, one of those school desks with the chair attached, and managed to walk across the room with my desk/chair while standing between the desk and chair and all my stuff in the crate thing under the seat and all my papers on my desk.

It is seriously hard enough being openly gay to only your closest friends and family... which I had been dealing with around the same time; but with all the terrible things she said I realized how terrible of a person she TRULY is. But then adding in all that stuff. It ALL hurt.. it wasnt just the gay comment or the ugly one. But it was a multiple hit blow and I never really cared about that girl since.

Besides that I mainly get stuff from my family members who are quite frank about the fact that I have acne.. AND are the kind that have NOTHING evenly remotely productive to say about it.

"Whats is all dos things on your face.... teet teet teet"- My grandmother.. she said teet teet teet while making pinching motions on her own face signifying as though they had been mosquito bites or bug bites or something. She does not speak english very well either.

"Do you want to get bigger marks to worry about besides all your acne? Do you wanna feel something worse than pimples? How about my handprint on your cheek?"- My dad while threatening to slap my face after I had had to raise my voice to ask him to stop yelling at me while we were driving on the interstate. The first time I was driving on the interstate as a matter of fact. I was very nervous... and right when he said that I pulled over got into the back seat and cried all the way home.. he called me an asshole.. whatever... he still thinks he did nothing wrong.

"Gosh, those things are making red marks on your face"- My mother... I really didnt care why she said it because I got up and left the room.

"You need face medication"- Person in a pharmacy. It got to me but i did not let it bring me down. I threw it up with this guy and even though he was bigger than me and probably 20 years older (he was old enough to be my dad), I was satisfied after thoroughly cussing him out and almost getting into a fight with him. I was kicked out of the pharmacy and they said I should leave the premises because they called the cops. I ran like hell into the neighborhood behind the store.

Yeh I had a ''frien'' having attitiute on me too. It's like just because I have acne I don't have the right to excist...even a bitch should jave empathy..and then she gave me a huf at the end for her god damn concoisu. I have had bad chance before with going to special schools with special peolpe so people have been mean to me and I'm used to it but when your face get worse and you don't even have confidence it's like why do you do this?

Your face is none of her business you onlt get stronger becuase of fighting your acne, you can tell the principal and sue her that's like psychological bulluying. You don't do that people, doesn't matter how much acne you have, don't let her get away with it like I did with my bullies they called me fake, groose through paper in my hair and I wasn't the only acne-sufferer.

It was a good thing you fifn't hit her because that would maybe end up bad for you...continue be strong and don't let her pull you down. When peole what she does to people and her terrible personality they will choose you over her not to make it into a competition...
