how to cope emotionally

Hi All,

Posted this under acne, but posting it here as well, hope that is allowed as it applies to both boards!

Havent posted here in a bit, but did quite frequently awhile back. I had about a 15 year struggle with acne, that finally got better, but now have an even bigger (but related) problem with ingrown hairs on my chin...they basically get infected, cause acne like marks and look HORRIBLE. this is absolutely crushing me and i dont know what else to do. tried every medication, tried laser hair removal treatments (almost 20 of them) which is the most effective (normally) treatment and the problem has only got worse. my entire chin is full of these sores and doesnt cover up with makeup. it is also physically painful!

so i guess my question is....how do people cope??? i try to go on as normal and works for awhile, but sometimes i just cant....it makes me not want to go out in public, i avoid friends/situations, etc. the hopelessness is the worst -i feel like ive tried EVERYTHING, nothing works and there is no hope...the problem is only getting worse...

help?

SP
