  1. The best possible thing you can do for yourself is mirror fast. I have purposely tried not to look in the mirror and its amazing how all of a sudden I feel confident and sociable just by not looking at my reflection constantly. If you are strong willed enough you should def try it.
  2. its whatever I'm used to being ugly. Actually I haven't broke out too bad for a while (just small stuff that goes away after a couple of days) I think because I cut out milk like 3 months ago. I love milk tho
  3. That really hit home for me. If it wasn't for work I'd lose my mind in my apartment. I saw you tried Murad before that stuff sucks! That one thing totally f*cked up my face beyond belief. I even stuck with it for like 6 weeks even when it was breaking me out hardcore, stupid me. I think the majority of my scars were caused by that sh*t after making my face go from bad to worse. and for what its worth I'm a dude and I think you're attractive. dat smile! I'd probably get all nervous if you look
  4. lol this guy again? wtf but yea I wish I was good looking. even without acne or scars I'm nothing special so being male model like with acne or scaring would be a giant step up for me. like a big huge whole other universe step. and yeah I've cried especially after having panic attacks.
  5. if the emotional and psychological effects of acne made us feel awesome then I'd agree with you. We come on here complain and let our feelings be known and others relate or try to help. Sometimes its cool to know that other people are out there going through the same sh*t. Also some of us have no one to turn to in real life to get our feelings out there. so whatever.
  6. 100% understand. i pretty much hate every moment of my existence. i have to fake it when i have to go out and do shit and i hate that i cant be normal. and these scars on my face are going to be with me until i rot away alone in my apartment one day. i think all these negative things all day but for whatever reason im still around. something inside tells me to keep going. im sure you know what i mean. you're comments on here don't go unnoticed. im here for you as much as some anonymous person on
  7. if you're serious then I guess you would need some professional help. i still drag my sorry ass to work and do what I have to do but i've been almost to the point where I wanted to just give up and let it consume me. its pretty scary. I feel for you I hope you get your head straight soon.
  8. face still looks like sh*t. some gay guy working the jack in the box drive thru was being all flirty with me, feels good i guess.
  9. some people are just ignorant and weren't raised correctly. people would stare at me too or call me dirty and these people were in their 30's, 40's, 50's its a shame and they probably have kids and don't teach them any manners so they just breed stupidity.
  10. Acne is very normal - it's definitely not the worst skin condition a person can have and it's very common. It is not really a "disease" either more than it is a temporary condition of the pore. What we see as "Acne" is the infection under the skin from an extremely blocked pore more than likely from a massive amount of sebum. This can easily be remedied by taking Accutane (if you were up for it) which would shut off and shrink the oil glands so the pore could no longer be blocked and exfoliate n
  11. Those persons do not exist in my neighbourhood. Well then get out of your neighborhood. You're bound to find somebody. I can't get out of my neighbourhood due to obligations. There is no rule or law which states that I will find somebody. When I find somebody it will always be a bonus to my life. Life is in general unfair. Fairy tales do not exist in real life. yea I have that same outlook on life. I see the world as just a bunch of random events and nothing is given. But hey look man I'm u
  12. hey man just wanted to say I have similar scaring in the exact same areas. you seem to be a cool positive person despite it and its pretty inspirational actually. i've let my scars get the best of me and maybe I shouldn't. and yea you have a bad ass hair cut! take care bro.

  14. is therapy really helping? I ask because I have considered seeing a shrink myself because there is no way I can live this way much longer. I just don't want to be prescribed meds, I want to get to the root of the problem and fix it. Like somehow find a way to make me naturally not care and be free from my brain. It sucks because it only takes one small remark or a dirty look from someone to ruin my day completely. I've been trying exposure therapy to get over my social anxiety and its kinda
  15. yea I guess because acne makes us depressed and feeling down. kinda like a gateway type thing it leads to mental issures. I've been to socialanxietysupport.com and it pisses me off because there are a bunch of regular acne free good looking people there who just merely have mental problems and are beating themselves up. this site kind of gets me mad too because I see a bunch of beautiful people whose lives are being ruined by acne. like I see the dudes who post here who have pics up and th
  16. hey, I'm sure moving like you did would be hard on anyone not just because you have acne. the whole unfamiliarity of it all could be nerve racking I imagine. seems like you have stuff going for you tho, hitting the gym is def a good thing and you said you have old friends back home so apparently having acne hasn't stopped you from having a social life or wanting to take care of yourself. give it time im sure you'll meet cool people and make new friends in your new surroundings. like I said it wo
  17. probably any age, I mean nobody really wants acne. but I'm 31 and I still get break outs like moderate ones nothing really severe but it is embarrassing. and yea i'll probably be 40 if I'm still alive and not be married. and if I still have acne prone skin forget about it. my entire life has been a waste.
  18. yea I wanna be playing the harp in the sun in the middle of nowhere living all carefree not being self conscious too.
  19. Yes! I didn't get bad acne until 18-19 and when I got it I for some reason didn't care much. I wasn't brought up to care about my looks and in high school I too was a nerd/geek that always needed a haircut and over all didnt take care of myself. I was completely uneducated about acne (due to a shitty upbringing my parents suck) so when I had it I just thought it would go away eventually. I would pop every pimple I had ( I thought it was what you had to do) and scrub my face with bath soap and a
  20. I've thought about this before. I dont think my partner would need to have acne for my kid to have it too. part of me would love to feel the joy of being a father but most of me says I wouldn't want to pass on my shit genetics.
  21. Yea kills my confidence too, matter of fact I've met girls with acne and scars who still don't even look my way because they got options anyway. Its harder for us guys for sure. of course there will be arguments from women on this board but they have no idea. unfortunately i cant even grow a beard to cover this shit i call a face. i am so beta. Get some confidence Frank.Just because you cannot sport a beard doesn't means your beta! It's your confidence and your body language that makes you a
  22. Hi, thanks for being there Yeah things get really hard sometimes, if you read the posts on here it is frightening to see that acne makes even the most upbeat bubbly people get depressed. I am feeling a bit better now, although still not spoken to my hubby. Skin has calmed down for now, no new breakouts for two days but those new scars I keep talking about don't look any better. How are you feeling? there is a lot of positivity going on in this thread right now so I dont want to mess th
