  2. agreed. the person who cares most about your acne is you. your friends will remain your friends
  3. I used to have panic attacks, but I've learned to deal with anxiety and the attacks naturally. Please, please get off of whatever antidepressants you are on, though it would be best to not have ever been on them. The damaging effects of antidepressants are much worse than any condition they "cure." I've seen people I love changed into monsters by antidepressants, so do yourself a favor and get off of them asap. Panic attacks are completely mental. You feel like you're going to die, but you're
  4. The sun is good for you. It should make you happy, not sad. I'm sure no one at the bus stop or wherever cares about your acne.

He's very likely right in his diagnosis, because you don't have any of the symptoms of Rosacea. If they bother you badly, you can try some of
  8. I have mild Rosacea and quite a few broken blood vessels on my cheeks and nose (especially where it connects with my face). My question is: Will being out in the sun/getting a tan make the redness worse/create more broken blood vessels? Thanks
  9. Wow, some of these are very harsh. I have to agree that the worst thing are the looks and the way people act around you, and though I've never been unfortunate enough to have anyone outright say something horrible, children will be honest and it can sting. My 6-year-old niece whom I adore said, "Why is your face like that?" After I tried to explain and she eventually got over it, it sort of stuck with me through the rest of the day. In the same way, I think older relatives often say things
