I've been dealing with acne for a long time. Just a couple of weeks ago I had therapy, Kinesiology to be more specific. I was regressed back to when it started and in a sense relived all the feelings and experiences I've went through. It's amazing how much we block out of our memory. Our minds are kind of like a filing system. We either deal with things or they remain pending. I was shocked when I realised that I attempted suicide so many times. I used to scrub my face till it was red raw and sat on my bed nearly every night crying from something hurtful that someone had said to me. Everytime I looked in the mirror, discovering that I still had redness and acne all over my skin was like a kick in the stomach. I feel like I was obessive about the whole thing, and many acne sufferers are. I'd panic if I had a meeting, interview, when I was going through a bad breakout. I always believed that they were looking at my skin and judging me or feeling sorry for me, which is hard to deal with. There's so many things that I've put off or stopped myself from doing because of acne, or the way that this condition makes me feel. I think acne has a tremendous effect on our mentality. I also feel like I'm responsibe for having it. In the sense that acne is a dis- ease within ourself. To deal with the condition you have to get to the route of the problem. If we lived in a society where we wasn't judged for having bad skin or spots on our face and we wasn't all obessive about our skin-care routine and left our skin alone to heal for itself we probably wouldn't have a problem. It's sad to think that doctors class this condition as such a low priority and don't put nearly enough effort into finding a cure. And I know there's other conditions out there thay may be deemed more serious, but when I read cases of kids and adults attempting suicide, it is serious. Cosmetic companies use people as human guinea pigs just to make money. Marketing there products so well and truly making people believe that there product will produce amazing effects, promises of clear skin. It's so sad. It surprises me when I search online how many acne sufferers, or supposed acne sufferers charge money for 'the cure' so to speak. My one wish this year is that nobody ever has to suffer from acne ever again, that you all wake up to clear skin and move on with your life, and I applaud the people that haven't let this condition beat them. I'm 22yrs old and I'm just learning to accept this. It scares me how many people on this board are so much older than me, but still suffering. Everyday people tell me not to let anything hold you back from what you want to do, you have one life, live it to it's fullest, and I'm trying to adopt that attiude slowly, but surely. If I've offended anyone with this message I truly apologise and I don't want to debate. Needed to vent and share my opinion with people that understand what I'm going through.

I am so happy you came to healthboards. I'd like to invite you to post on ym thead labeled "Accutane Journal". There are several out there, but obviously it shows me as beginning the thread. I have a few questions for you about your treatments and how you are handling things, and it would be nice if you would joing those of us who post at my thread. I am a freshman in high school, so I would like to hear how other people are dealing with it. Good luck, and I look forward to hearing from you soon!
