Re: How do you cope with your acne emotionally?
I know exactly how you feel in every way and sometimes I ask the same thing. I sometimes feel I'm being punished and often think of suicide. I'm 21, I've been battling acne for the past 5 years, I often play it on meningococcemia(which I had when I was 13), I assume thats the reason my skin is the way it is. I don't get terrible outbreaks, but they almost always leave red marks. I wouldn't mind having acne occasionally so much, if it wasn't for the red marks. I keep trying to find ways to fix my acne. I recentley started eating better and my skin started to clear up, but then this past week I had another breakout. My father said it was because I ate some cake(and he's always heard thats bad for acne), I take a multivitamin and drink alot of water as well as eat alot of fruits and vegetables. I never drink pop and I've give up fast food. Just today I started eating stuff like Salmon, Sardines and Tuna, hoping that they will help me in someone. I know they won't, but sometimes I just pray that something will. I don't consider myself a bad person, but I feel like I'm being punished.
But in everyway I understand how you feel.
