Nothing. But it stands to be mentioned:

1) I'm not in high school.

2) If I don't go to work, they don't pay me. If I don't get paid, I don't eat.

3) I have mild acne to begin with.

Acne stopped me from doing one thing... getting to the bus on time.

Those 5 min in the bathroom make the difference lol

i always wanted to be in a chess club but my school didn't have one :( they had a mountain bike club instead :| .

------

a few months ago, i felt really bad about the state of my skin so i didn't go out much and i tried to avoid family and friends. basically, i didn't have much fun.

Acne stops me from doing anything where I won't have reliable access to a mirror/sink. Not that I've ever liked camping or anything outdoorsy like that, but there's absolutely no way I'd even consider it given my BP applying/facewashing needs.

for me its to go out anywhere, especially shopping. I only shop at preppy stores like A&F and Hollister and everytime i go there i only see hot people so acne stops me from going there cause i feel extremely uncomfortable there among all those pretty looking guys and girls. Thats about it, sometimes i wonder if its my laziness that stops me from doing anything and not my acne

i avoid anywhere that has bad lighting, like flourescent or overhead spotlight type lighting b/c i know it made my complexion look bad. so there are certain restaurants i won't eat at, bars i don't like to go to, the gym at night. i can't wait till my skin looks good enough so this no longer matters.

Have to agree

* Almost failed my A levels due to lack of attendance

* Almost failed my degree as i missed exams

* Not lucky enough to get a bf or a gf (not really explored my sexuality either)

* Quit my part time job due to depression (although im back now)

* Not looking for a job based on my degree

* Avoid any social situation, pretty much alienating me from friends

What does acne stop me from doing? Nothing. I have mild acne to begin with, but I think it's important that you control your acne (meaning don't let your acne prevent you from doing things), not vice versa (letting your acne control you)...

yea we know that,...thats our problem? its hard

EXACTLY the same as I feel. Flourescant lighting=scary. I can still manage, but there is a considerable aversion. Other than that...I don't know. I know this doesnt make any sense, but sometimes it seems like I'm afraid of lighting more when I'm alone (!). Like when I walk out the door in the morning. Nobody is around, but I know that that sunlight is making me far worse than what I saw in the mirror moments prior, and it's like "damn, do I really have to go out?!", lol. When somebody is around, though, I'm so hellbent on keeping my confidence up that there is literally a mental block on it. If I let acne affect my demeanor around others my dignity would be shot, and I value that too much.

Stopped my quest for life.

Errr nevermind, it probably wasn't acne that has made me give up on life.

It was a girl. -whoops.
