  1. It can be hereditary.Both of my parents had bad acne.They still have adult acne,but it is nothing with what they had.I can see their scars.I'm the oldest out of three kids.I had to be the lucky one to get bad acne.My brother and sister only have a few pimples.No blackheads,no whiteheads,less pimples.My face feels like sandpaper. But look,I understand that you don't want to pass your acne to your kids.And we know how terrible it is.If you really want a child,you could still consider it!Plus,if y
  2. Wooow...Anything over 100? You're right though.Ethnicity plays a big role.I'm Hispanic. *Sigh* I still wouldn't even think you were fat.You probably don't even look fat.
  3. I'm also friendless.Let's see.I used to have tons of friends,but not anymore because A.They weren't friends.Just people to talk to. B.My best 2 friends turned out to be my enemies.One girl offended me many times about my looks,even with acne.The other one was never supportive. C.I'm just quiet.I'm not antisocial at all,just quiet.If you get to know me I'm tons of fun,but if I'm quiet,and keep to myself,no one will know that.I've tried to get out of it,but small steps first. D.I don't even han
  4. I don't have lemons around,but I do have vinegar.I like to use the vinegar after a baking soda scrub.A baking soda scrub,and diluted vinegar afterwards leave my skin feeling soft and smooth.I don't see it actually helping with my acne,plus,I've only begun using it,but I like the feeling it leaves.Also,please remember to dilute.Who knows what the pure stuff could do.
  5. Be brave and go for it.If you don't go for it,you're going to regret it.My skin is terrible and I've braved up to do it.I wasn't lucky,but it was worth a try.If she doesn't like you,what can you do about it?Move on and find someone else.Just don't act too self concious.be confident,but not cocky.Act like you know you're worth it. It could work out.I've seen people with acne with partners,including myself.It is so common,that people are starting to not care.
  6. Don't photoshop.Don't be a fake.I know I would feel bad if I did that.Just tell him about yur concerns.it might seem hard,and silly,but it will probably be worth it.And hey,if he doesn't like you because of your acne,better to receive the news now than when you meet!But it really does seem like he cares about you,so go for it.
  7. It is actually possible.Different people have different needs. Really,if the guy says he truly loves you,and that he truly doesn't care,then I believe he is being sincere.But you will never know until you meet him.Maybe you can have a serious talk about your concerns?Instead of asking what if you looked like ....,you should just tell him the truth about your concerns,and maybe he'll understand better?Really,consider that. About meeting him,be careful,alright?
  8. I know I feel kinda weird during the holidays with the relatives,with acne.But it won't disappear in time for xmas,so I'll just use makeup to cover it up.Or maybe I'll just show everyone my lovely acne.Better for me,I don't really want to feel like I have a mask on.
  9. Yeah.Some of us aren't allowed to go out on Friday nights. So I stay home,read,and go to the board here,because even if you guys decide to post here instead of doing something else,you're all pretty cool.
  10. Makeup doesn't really work for covering up my zits,so many times,I don't bother.You'll do fine.
  11. Easier said than done,true.But,if people want,they could give it a try.
  12. Now that was mean! Hmm...I love your sig pic,turtle.i was gonna laugh,but people around me would just think I was coo-koo
  13. It isn't that easy for some,but I do agree with you.The faking confidence thing does work.Eventually,you're gonna have to go out of your house,so,in that case,fake self confidence,and really,one will feel great.So when people have more confidence,others like you,you feel better,no matter how much acne crap you have on your face...Even if your confidence is fake. So for whoever is interested,and wants to develop some confidence,fake it,go out and achieve things.It worked fine for me,maybe it wil
  14. Yeah,maybe you can't spend your life inside your house because of acne,but making people feel stupid for that isn't gonna work.If you just tell someone to go out,would they do it?It is not as simple when there's people that have really been emotionally affected. So..think about it more.Calling people weak won't work.I agree that going out and doing your best in life and forgetting about the acne is a good idea.But does that mean we have to suck in bad feelings?If we do that,not only about acne,
  15. I'm overweight,my face is full of acne.I have seen some overweight people with acne too.I don't know,I guess those certain overweight people got lucky in the skin department?Hmm.Well,if you have any proof or observations...
  16. It isn't that we don't know that life is meaningful or anything.So we have acne,and we go to a board about it.I'm sure many of us have other things to do.What is going overboard?I just don't see it.So we talk about it,doesnt mean our whole lives revolve around it.I have better things to do,but because I come here and talk about my experiences,comment on others',and maybe try to encourage the people,doesn't mean I'm obsessed and can't see the good in life.And for those of us who's life does revol
  17. You really don't understand do you?Nothing foolish about it.i mean,you were pretty much telling us your experiences here.And we do that because we find comfort in finding others in the same problems.And you know what?It isn't all about teenage years and temporary crap,let's do the regimen so it can clear up and we can dance!SOme people don't get cleared up after the regimen and the teenage years.If we could,we wouldnt be complaining.But we know that things might not work out that great. Now,I d
  18. Now,why is it a bad thing to come over here and rant?What is wrong with people trying to talk to others who feel the same way?Just because people can do something about the acne,doesn't mean we have to suck it in? Sucking it in is not something very healthy if you feel bad.People need a chance to vent with others who understand.Just because we're here venting and have emotional scars,not only from acne,but from other things.And that can make acne and other little defects seem worse.If people ca
  19. It's the same for us girls.... If you've read my other posts,I don't care how bad your acne is...I don't turn someone down because of the acne.Now some people will do that.I won't,and I've seen girls dating guys with acne,and vice versa.I guess it pretty much is that the girl is interested in YOU,the whole you.And it depends on the girl's tastes about personality,and looks.I have my own standards,but stuff like acne doesn't matter much to me.
  20. If I had a choice,I would stick with acne.But I both have acne and am overweight.That was nice to see.Being reminded of being called a fat disgusting blob.Aw,well.Doesn't matter to me,because I'm taking steps to stop being overweight,and stop having too much acne.There's also some people who look good,and feel great being overweight. So,I can see through acne,and nice people can be good looking if they have the worst acne ever.And fat people can look nice if they have a nice personality.But as
  21. Bleh.Most people,clear or not,will look at themselves if they pass a mirror or window.I am one of those people. But..there's a time when that's not all normal.For example,I will spend time touching and picking at my face at school,I can't help it sometimes.And I will look at myself in the bathroom mirror looking for,and noticing my flaws.I don't know if I have BDD,but it sure seems close.If I see a mirror I will inspect and look at my face all around,and take in the fact that I have bumps.I wi
  22. Naw.I do not think of myself as ugly.I have flaws that bother me,and I will try to get rid of them,or just live with them.Sure,I've been treated as the ugly girl.I still walk with my head up high.I've had people online tell me I'm a goddess.Sure,you can't see the acne,but the acne wouldn't affect my body shape or face shape.Plus,I was confident,and trying to look good in those pics.No makeup.In shcool,I could care less how I look like most of the time,so I don't look that lovely in the morning!B
