I know exactly how you feel. I am 40+ and have suffered with acne since I was 12. It ruined my personality , my social skills and consequently my social life.

I went through my entire 4 years of high school never once raising my hand in any class to ask a question because I did not want to draw attention to myself. I was afraid that other students would make fun of me so I tried my best to make myself invisible.

At 40+ I still have the problem of not being able to speak up when I should, and I still fear being made fun of. Even though I no longer have acne, I have the scars which I think are in some respects worse. People meeting me for the first time take one look at me and automatically dislike me. After all acne scars are associated in books and movies with vile and disgusting people like muderers and other types of criminals. I find that I have to try so much harder than others to get people to see the real me. Many times I just give up and don't even bother to try.

I regret the fact that I missed out on so much fun because of acne. But I can't change the past so I try not to think about it and go on with my life.
