Depressed...
Jan 27, 2001
After viewing both AngelaMcDarling and Flex's photos, I thought that I'd try to take a picture of my progress using B5 (2 weeks) in hopes that it would show improvement. Because of acne, it's been such a long time since I've even got myself in front of a camera. After taking the below picture from a digital camera, I remembered why...



The light in my bathroom and even at work are incadescent to a degree, and never really truly showed how bad my acne was. The camera doesn't lie - and I feel worse than ever...

The below picture is a Photoshop manip, of course. After seeing how I truly look, I wanted to see how I might look without acne:



It's torture seeing it now. Even looking close to that during high school, college, and presently could mean so many positive things. Perhaps I would have a girlfriend right now, have done better in school, and been more confident.

Apparently, I've been fooling myself for a while now, because this picture is how people must really see me; it's amazing that girls would even talk, much less ask for a date while I was in college. Never wanted to go to parties or hang out, despite people asking me to. I work as a web graphic designer for a local newspaper's web site (kind of a dream job for me). Now, I'm suprised that they even offered me the job...

B5 is working, mind you...if anything, what I looked like in the mirror before taking it was much worse than now. This only means that I must have looked absolutely hideous before that. I only hope that it continues to work, because acne has ruined most of my life...
