That's exactly what it is Nancy... her stung vanity.... and yes this woman is 'weird,' yet it took this one incodent for me to open my eyes and realize how much time I had been wasting on her.... being a friend, letting her call me all hours of the night and day crying as she was going through her divorce. She told me I was her "hot water bottle" that comforted her through all of this.

Well..... I can't be that person for her and that will free up some time, space and energy in my life and make way for people who are better suited to where I am going in my life, spiritually, mentally and emotionally.

So all in all it was a good thing. It still hurts though.

I could go on and on about this...

This girl that is like 6 years younger than me made a beautiful nickname for me. "Acne" Nice, nice people.

And the WORST - in our school, we have this news program. And almost every day, there is a commercial for that god damn Clearsil Ultra. And then I hear, Smoyle, you need that. UGHHHH I could just throw the desk across the room.

Some people are so dumb that they don't even belong in school. Or anywhere for that matter.

o man if someone ever said anythin to me about my face id drop their punk ass so fast they wouldnt even know it. id pull of some fight club shit on them if they said any one of those things u guys talked about. im not an angry person but thats one of the things that can definitely set me off.

i guess people here got their own problems to worry about instead of making fun of others looks. or maybe i just never had it bad enough

who knows

I've never really received comments about my face, until recently, when I've been having the worst breakouts of my life.

Around that time, I had gotten into a fight with my best friend, and a close guy friend of hers said to me.. "if you ever come around me again, i'll scrape your pimples off on the sidewalk" and "there is no cure for you".

other comments made by friends of mine:

"if I ever had acne anywhere besides my face.. I'd kill myself"

"you look like you have a big cut on your forehead. did you cut yourself?"

It just really upset me, because I see acne as a disease.. I do everything in my power to clear my face.. and I cant. So is that my fault? No, it's not.. and I really wish people could understand that.

Man wilted....some of those comments made are so cruel....Sorry to hear that people are so ignorant like that...It's really quite a sad thing, because they'll never understand the pain or hurt you're going through until they actually experience it. And although we don't "wish" acne upon anyone, it wouuld be satisfying to know that they have some sort of insecurity to be delved upon when they put other people's self worth below their own.

Man, I would wish acne on everyone! That would then make us look normal.

Almost never have I been insulted about my skin, but I've had a few experiences.

Some pikey kid who I went nose to nose with said, "man, I could do dot to dot on your face". Needless to say he hit the deck.

The other time was with a different pikey kid. I told him he was a cocky little shit and he told me I was a spotty basterd.

I haven't really received any real hurtful comments, just some annoying ones from a few family members.

However I have had one unpleasant experience. It occured during christmas-time last year. Where I work (a pizza place, we have three stores) we have a christmas party every year, someone dresses up like santa and people at the three stores buy gag gifts for the employees. I along with a fellow co-worker we in charge of the gifts for our store. Apparently he couldn't think of anything to get me and his girlfriend (a fellow co-worker as well) came up with the brilliant idea of getting me concealer. Thankfully I received my gift last so pretty much everyone's attention had kind of drifted and also thankfully it wasn't loud and obnoxious, it was just a small bottle, so I didn't get embarassed in front of the whole crowd.

It hurt, but I played it off. I know it wasn't malicious, but still it hurt.

The sad part is, is just that me & this kid used to be really awesome friends, but I guess we can see how much he valued it.

It is selfish to wish insecurities upon people, but it would be oh-so nice to experience at least a little bit of revenge =)

I guess this is why we usually stay up in our rooms all day to keep all this from happening.

Yep, I have my computer in my room and I'm usually hanging out in here, playing video games etc. It's not like my parents give a crap to "REALLY" help.

JimMch - poor guy, that would really hurt. But you handled it well.

My worst experiences always occured with adults. Usually they would "remind me" that my acne was bad. Or point out that my scars will always be there. Gee thanks, like I really need to know that.

I didn't really start to get acne till I was a senior in high school and I guess at that point the only person who really noticed was me. Unfortunately, I went to Basic Training for the Air Force shortly after graduating and HOLY CRAP did I break out. It was AWFUL and that was where I got these "pearls of wisdom":

One girl in my basic training flight managed to look beyond the acne and tell me that I sort of resembled Michelle Pfeiffer (which I had been told quite a bit, especially when her career was in full swing) and relayed what she thought to my other flight-mates who said "Uh, I don't think so!!" Also upon looking at my high school ID card and comparing it to my new military ID, the same chick who disagreed about the Pfeiffer resemblance said "Yeah, you looked way better in school!" The fact that it was only a few months ago that I was in school didn't make it any better.

Fast forward to technical training school, two months later: my face was still horrible and I was practically mute in new groups because I was so ashamed. Eventually, I started to become friends w/the other chicks in my class and one got so comfortable w/me she decided to confide to me that "At first I couldn't even look at you because your face was so bad!!! I was so embarrassed for you!" I guess she thought she was being nice or maybe trying to let me know she felt comfortable enough in our friendship to tell me that, but I could have done w/out it honestly.

And the coupe de grace: One morning, as I was getting ready to go to class and was doing my makeup in the mirror when some other chick was in there and commenting about how she was breaking out (which honestly her breakout was MINIMAL, like one zit on her chin and that was it, not even a cyst) and I was sympathetic to her and said something to the effect of thank God for makeup. To which she turned and looked at me and said "Yeah, you definitely need it." So much for goodwill towards your fellow man (or dumb bitches in military dorms.)

My acne still bugs me to this day, but isn't so severe that people notice it when I wear makeup (which I NEVER leave the house w/out!) But I feel extreme empathy for people who's acne is more severe than mine and I absolutely hate it when I hear people giving them shit or talking it behind their backs. I overheard coworkers one day talking about the new guy down the hall and basically they were just joking around about how horrible this guy's face was. I finally saw him and, yes, it was bad but instead of finding it hilarious like my workmates did, I felt totally depressed for him. I know how he felt, even if my acne was never as severe as his. I took up for him after that and everyone pretty much stifled the commentary around me aftewards.

People. Annoying, huh?
