Sometimes it's so releiving to feel that we all are going to die one day and after then I guess life would be soooo much fun for us all, did I say life; I meant death.
I am soooo excited about this whole death thing. I can't wait to die. Life without acne is not any better any way.
Hang on with your hopes for some more years, even people without acne have some form of hopes or the other, it'll help you to pass your life here and then death would releive us of all our pains and sorrows. Time flies.
Here is something that might comfort you:
We sometimes congratulate ourselves at the moment of waking from a troubled dream. It may be so the moment after death. --Nathaniel Hawthorne
Living is death; dying is life. We are not what we appear to be. On this side of the grave we are exiles, on that citizens; on this side orphans, on that children. - Henry Ward Beecher
Death gives us sleep, eternal youth, and immortality. - Jean Paul Richter
One must wait until evening to see how splendid the day was; one cannot judge life until death. - Charles De Gaulle
: You know what's interesting? Most other diseases in the world are treated with respect-- for instance, if people went around exploiting cancer patients by saying "i've got the cure to cancer!" or getting people with parkinson's disease hopes up by saying "stop the twitches forever with this easy cure!"-- they'd be sued!! Why is it, though, when it comes to acne people will proclaim that they have the "CURE" at the drop of a hat. People get our hopes up. They sell us the same old stuff that doesn't work. They make false claims. They make false guarantees. They make false testimonies. And they all get off scot-free.
: I'm just ranting-- so please forgive me. It just SUCKS that people can go around making false claims about a VERY SERIOUS DISEASE (serious not only because of it's physical effects but the emotional/psychological ones as well).
: I wish you all the absolute best of luck in finding whatever it is that will work for you to cure this. I know what you go through-- and I hope that someday people will treat acne with the same respect that they treat other diseases/disorders and quit toying with our desire to do anything to make it stop.
