Ok, so the title is somewhat over-dramatic. Let me assure you that there are other factors of why I am "homeless" other than acne. But let me tell you why acne played a major role.

So, 2 days ago my mom kicked me out of the house. She said it was because I don't have a job, I don't have school, I don't have a car, because I go out too often and because I've had a bad attitude for the last couple years. The only reason I don't have a car or school is because just before the semester began, some......person performed a hit and run on me and killed my car, leaving me with no way to get to school or a job. I was planning on getting a job soon, but it wasn't a huge deal since I had plenty of money saved up. The whole going out too often thing is dumb. I'm young. All young people hang out with their friends on a regular basis.

Now, the bad attitude thing. I know that's the main reason she kicked me out. And I DO attribute my bad attitude to acne. It's had an extremely negative effect on me over the last 9 years that I've had it. I really don't need to explain to you people how acne can make you depressed and angry. Some people deal with it better than others. I'm one of those that haven't dealt with it very well. It's not that I usually have a bad attitude. I'm just usually depressed, so I never really talk to my mom. If anything, I usually have a neutral attitude towards my mom. But I am set off rather easily. This may be a bad analogy, but my cat had mange for a period of quite a few months and after a while he became very agitated all the time and would start fights with the other cats and even attempt to bite or scratch me. When the mange went away, he became nice again. Acne basically does the same thing for humans. If you are in pain for a long enough period of time, you become agitated and get angry easier. And with humans and acne you have to add in the beauty factor. We feel ugly with acne all over us. It gets us depressed.

So I guess after 9 years of being depressed and pissed off, my mom finally decided she'd had enough. Like I said, acne isn't the only factor of why I was kicked out, but it played a LARGE role. As I'm sure many of you will agree, acne basically controls my life and almost every single move I make in life is made with my acne in mind. Will this help my acne? Will this make it worse? I ask those questions before I do ANYTHING? It has completely and utterly changed my personality for the worse over the course of many years.

Anyways, I'm currently staying at a friend's apartment. I don't know how long that will last. Do any of you have similar stories about how acne has "ruined your life"? I could go into the whole never having a girlfriend thing and not feeling confident in myself, but I've already written a lot so I'll leave that for another time.
