  1. Really appreciate the support from everyone on here ! tank top and shorts is what I'll do when I muster up the courage to hit the beach this summer. 2 nights ago I spoke to her about my skin issues and how it made me feel and showed her my back and she said simply that it doesn't change anything and that she likes me for who I am and still thinks I'm really cute. Said I'm amazing. Its a wonderful thing cause I was nervous. But I was honest with her and it worked. Thanks again everyone for the
  2. I think this is a wonderful idea ! I hope more people see this. I live in brooklyn, New York
  3. Soo I've been going out wit this girl for 2 weeks and we became a relationship a few days ago. Thing is she loves the beach and practically lives a few minutes from there. She has already brought up how she wants to be there together. Me, on the other hand, dont enjoy the beach like i used to years ago. Simply because i have horrible back acne. All over the back of my shoulder blades and in the middle. Most of it is on the upper back. I am ashamed of it to be honest. Seeing other guys at the bea
  4. Just in that mood that I have to vent/rant a bit. Its a long post. Due to Having a hard time with the challenges that bad acne bring into life. Reads and/or respondsare truly appreciated... .its hard to be be positive and stay positive when u are surrounded by acne-free people so much. They have what u want, and its not entirely in your control, its not like u can just clear up out of nowhere. People stare, its so annoying, like hey im a person just like you. Cant stand society sometimes. At
  5. Hello everyone! I haven't been on here in awhile, I'm Louis. I'm 21, I've had acne since I was 17. I have severe cystic acne and scarring on my jawline/ front neck area. Also moderate acne and scarring on my face. If anything, as im sure you all know, over the years acne makes us feel alone in the battle against it. When I found this site it made me feel like less of an outcast. So i thought how would it be to talk in person and hangout with people going through the same problem ? As oppose to j
  6. I have pretty much the same problem in the same area but I have more it sucks. I get the steroid injection every 4 weeks done it about 8 times already. Does anybody know how to get rid of these like there has to be a laser surgery to really get rid of them without having it re appear ? Check out my profile and gallery please.
  7. along with the other poeple on this board that have commented, i know exactly what u mean and feel the same. it has happened and continues to bappen to me. Have faith though, one day the sun willtruly shine for u and u will be clear and u will persevere
  8. i am an acne sufferer from brooklyn, new york and i would be down for this, i feel it can help for sure.
  9. Tired of being lonely and feeling like a loser and seeing my bumpy scars in the mirror. Tired of spending Friday nights alone. I have very few friends now because I stopped hanging out with old ones awhile ago due to being ashamed of my skin. Also I've been single for awhile and I just wish something would work out with a girl so I can at least feel attractive and be alittle happy....last night my sister and her boyfriend and my cousin and her boyfriend went to my other cousins house, who is mar
  10. hi knittings. My advice to you is to follow these steps : keep a food diary, record how much u eat, how ur feeling and how often u eat. this way u can truly see ur eating habits and plan alternative activities to eating. Next, know when your hungry and when your just having a craving. when u get hungry, give the urge to eat like 10 minutes and do somthing else. if u realize then that ur not hungry anymore then it was just a craving. Next, Talk to who u live with about it and see if they can elim
  11. Laurag i know exactly how u feel. i often feel people are staring everytime im on the train headed to work, it sucks and makes me feel ugly. i got a new zit just the other morning and it grew which brought me down and now its new years eve and i gotta go to a party like this it makes me feel horrific. So your not alone its not silly to feel that way...to overcome it though i thnk its about focusing on the things that make u different in good ways and your good features. try to think about wat ur

  13. Im struggling at the moment to find amything that can help. My dermatologist has supplied me 2 topical creams one for showers and one for before bed. So far they arent working too well. I'v even had a breakout around the mouth and chin area its really shitty i wanna bknow if there's foods i shld be avoiding oraybe something im drinking, my dermatologist sed its not about diet, but then why am i still having some breakouts ?? Unfortunately the main problem is the red, bumpy post acne scars on my
  14. Hate being at the barbershop. Iv had 2 different barbers because the previous talked about my skin in front of customers on 2 occasions and I told him f yourself. But being at the new barbershop still sucks bcuz its always crowded and it makes me feel really low bcuz all the guys in there have great skin and I'm just in the light and they r always staring. It is one of the most degrading feelings I get. I always leave the barbershop feeling like a loser or just someone who's not worth it. Its wo
  15. Thanks man. Unfortunately she wasn't in today maybe tomorrow or Friday she will be in idk tho. The crazy part though is that she has had my number for a week now and she hasn't sent anything at all. So I feel like I already know the answer still gunna ask though, and if I look like a fool whatever then. Thanks for the support
  16. Dont have her # i had given her mine wednesday. Yea she only works mondays and wednesdays thougj. The bad news is today was kinda awkward, usually we talk and flirt but today she only came to my room twice and she sed hi and smiled but that was it and she had to leave early. Ima just ask her wednesday if she wld like to go out to eat and if she says no it'll suck cuz work wit her but at least i can know and go on

  18. Thank you everyone for the support. Glad I'm not lonely in this fight against acne. @graceleigh31 yes I have been on it too for 6 months I just found a new dermatologist she has given me new creams to use.
  19. Soo at my job there is this really cute girl and due to acne its been awhile since I've been on a real date. But she's been talking to me and initiating conversation and we even went to the store together last week. So Wednesday we hugged and she was talkative so I asked her if I could go talk to her in her office later and she said yea sure check later. I went later and we spoke about work and she had to go to a meeting shortly so I asked her if she wanted to talk more because she doesn't go ba
  20. Well that girl that said that to you should go F herself. People can be so ignorant these days, they are the real worthless ones though. As for the rest of the post, I know how you feel, I'm going through a down time myself these past couple of days. I know its hard, but justtry to take it a day at a time. If there,'s things that u do that occupy your mind at least for a little do it. If your stressed workout or do something that consumes time and energy. And trust me probably most people on
  21. I think most people on here know exactly how you feel. We've all had those lows and most of us have suffered with acne for a long time. I started getting acne in 6th grade and I'm 25 now and still battle with it. It really is difficult to feel confident when you feel like everyone just sees the marks on your face. Honestly, not looking in the mirror helps. Try not to focus on your skin, don't let it define who you are and people that judge you for it aren't worth your time. If your dermatologist
