  1. I will never sympathize with cancer patients or people who have HIV/AIDS or diabetes etc. They get all these charities and donations and support and I get stared at like a freak. After years of anxiety humiliation and bullying nothing will ever change my mind about this. I couldn't care less about them while we get nothing
  2. Hello everyone I'm new to this forum. I'm currently 17 years old (male) Senior in High School and want to ask if anyone elses acne ruined their teenage years such as not being able to go out because of it, having no social life and enduring merciless bullying? I just hope I'm not the only one who has spent most of their teen years in complete isolation because of this. This disease has made me psychotic.
  3. I've had acne since age 10, it's currently what you'd probably classify as moderate, although it partially covers my face, and the majority of my back. I can definitely say acne has impacted me a lot. Middle school being the worst as I was one of the only kids that had acne, so I got a lot of mean/rude comments such as "You're disgusting, do you even wash your face??" I was humiliated and tried to avoid school. I think it's kind of funny that many people brush acne off as being a minor, insignif
  4. I was a really handsome guy before I has acne, my acne is cyst acne and presently up to 70 of them on my face, I hate my life presently since after my breakouts I've been hiding away from my girlfriend , I think she will freak out if she sees my shity face, although she loves me no matter how, but I couldn't go to collage for 3 days because of how disgusting I know I look, when ever I look @ the mirror I just ask God why? We hy me, every one in my class and friends have smooth fresh skin, so ima
  5. I drive myself insane every night wondering at normal people are doing. That means everyone with clear skin. They all get to go out and date and have fun and I have to be locked inside against my will because of how I look.
  6. Hello everyone, so I'm completely new to this site but I really just needed to find some support from people who know what I'm going through. I've had acne since I was about 12 and I'm now 18, really painful last couple years as it only got worse. I finally saw a dermatologist this year and she was pretty rude and kept insisting that my fears about accutane were idiotic but I don't care because I choose what extremes I'll go, not her. Anyways, she said I have moderate acne, and prescribed me som
  7. I spent Christmas day alone. It's hard to fathom how far I've fallen in a year. My skin issues are back and in many ways worse than ever. I ended up buying a short novel involving plants, mysticism and a life transition. I read for at least five hours and the book made me feel positive and hopeful. Then the next day I was back to feeling self-anger and self-loathing. And also wishing I could go back and avoid all that I'm dealing with now. These feelings are pretty constant and dominant. An
  8. I don't have a clear idea what this post is suppose to be, don't expect coherency. I guess I just need to get some feelings out. When I was twelve or so, my acne started to manifest. I am not sure why, but I reacted differently than the other kids that got it. At first, I had my parents buy medicine and such, but I became crazy as it worsened. Eventually, I started to wear foundation and such. I also was drifting away from my friends and others. My baby sister had died a few years before
  9. I've had acne since I was twelve years old, and next month I will be turning twenty-five. After thirteen years of breakouts, my skin is a disaster, and I am terrified of what I'll look like when I get older. My acne has never gotten any better as I got older, despite countless trips to the dermatologist in high school and trying every possible treatment under the sun. I now have health insurance that won't cover any sort of dermatologic intervention, so even if there was a solution, I wouldn'
