Okay, I think you need to step back and chill out a little.

You are obviously angry with the world for your condition and I completely understand as I get angry as well. But, bad skin is not the end of the world. There are so many things to enjoy in life and I can say this as I sit here with a painful cyst.

You also have to remember that sometimes our family members and friends dont understand what we are going through and sometimes their negative attitudes and comments come out of frustration.

I do think that you need to talk to someone, since you have crossed into the black and white state. If your acne is bad, all is bad, if acne goes away ,all is good. It just isn't like that. Plus, you feel that there is no hope. You shoot down every positive feedback that you get. YOU are in charge of your life and mindset, no one else. You may not be in charge of your face, but you have to start moving on.

Unfortunately, your acne and scars could last for years and you are missing out on life. And I am not trying to be mean, but you must not have had very good friends in the first place. I mean who leaves their friends because they have acne or were depressed?

That is unless, however, your attitude towards the world was being taken out on them as well. Pretty skin does not=HAPPY LIFE. It does not mean you will find someone that you love. Acne doesnt= UNHAPPY LIFE. It doesn't mean that you will be alone and lonely forever.

You may be so blessed in ways to come in the future or you may be blessed right now and not even noticing the beautiful world waiting to embrace you.

AS long as you are angry, things will not IMPROVE. I promise you this. I still get sad, but I am less angry and once i started to accept that this may be the best its gonna get it got better. And it got better because suddenly i thought, "Hey if this is my face, well hell I am going to have a life!!"

I know you said you have been to counseling but it doesnt work overnight. To me it seems you have anger, resentment, and social anxiety issues. Someone can help you. But only if you really want help.

So next time you are sad, maybe you really should look in the mirror. Because no matter how bad your skin is, you will be looking at the person that determined how happy or unhappy YOUR life is.

I will keep you in my prayers. And all i can say is been there and it takes a long time to get where I am now.
