      Can Acne And Depression Be Related?

      You go on about your way. I will do my best to ignore your presence. We'll both do better that way.

      Can Acne And Depression Be Related?

      Thank you, Deja. And I appreciate you sharing about your story, too - that's what makes this whole place turn. Us sharing our stories together. For the most part, I'm actually pretty cheerful, too. It's good for us to be able to reach a point where we can be irreverent and silly and live life beyond the trauma. That's healing. That's recovery. Invaluable and nesscary in learning how to live past the abuse. This issue just happens to be one of my touchy ones - gets me fast. But I am really, REALL

      Can Acne And Depression Be Related?

      All of the things you were previously talking about - the scientific studies, etc etc - those have a name. Quantum physics. Quantum entanglement. And further, quantum metaphysics (or how those theories affect the mind.) You would do well to research your own theories and at least be able to pinpoint their names. You sound like an idiot not knowing the umbrella terms of your own theories. I'm going to be blunt. The outer influences of my depression and mental illness were caused by years of physi

      Can Acne And Depression Be Related?

      No. What you're talking about is metaphysics, which is quite different from QUANTUM physics. Metaphysics is the attempt to stick a philosophical framework onto a physical one. That's New Age philosophy - which works as long as you leave room for the physical nature of having a body and having a fully lived human experience. We haven't even figured out anything beyond quantum entanglement outside of the fact that it exists. Trying to say "THIS EXPLAINS EVERY HUMAN MALADY" would get you bitchslapp
    5. Oooh, that "It's only 6:30 PM and if I go to sleep now I'll wake up at 3 AM but omg I'm so tired right now" feeling....

        Can Acne And Depression Be Related?

        Bullshit. Bullshit and dangerous. My depression/mental health disorders are caused by chemical imbalances that are caused by faulty wiring. Born with some of it and other glands/chemical/hypocampus etc stuff was influenced by outside trauma. Saying that it's all in your head and can be "cured" with meditation is highly offensive, cruel, and beyond that, idiotically simplistic. You should be careful. We have lots of members here who tread the lines of mental health (myself included) and do not ta

        A Simple Trick.

        I meant to get to this last night but then got sucked into a few threads at My Fitness Pal :/ I like this idea. Calm, centered self-reassurance. While it's no substitute for feeling better (I actually have several objections to the cult of 'positive thinking'), it IS a great way to momentarily brake the slide into self-hate and anxiety. And I could ALWAYS use more of that! Thank you for sharing this.
      3. As Flaxen says, some of us are more prone to this kind of worry than not. And that's okay. We are all here to support each other in this rat race called Acne. You are in the right place. You are among friends. You are going to be okay.

        Burning Red Patches

        It's possible it may be a new allergy. Check the obvious - new chin irritations? (Like a new lotion that you put on your hands and then rest your hands on your chin?) I'm not sure what else it could be, but someone else will be able to hop in here and give you good advice!
      5. Keep us posted. Our logs here are invaluable to so many people who come to this site!
      6. That can be pretty normal. Just means that it was ready to go. Treat it gently and keep it clean and it'll be fine. I, too, get so frustrated with the day in, day out, year after year grind of skin care. It can feel so hopeless. I'm really glad you're here - please keep talking, we are listening.

        Diaper Rash Cream...?

        Keep us posted on how this experiment goes!
      8. I really like the mirror thing. That's neat.
