• Hey Visitor,

    In light of recent events, all community members in the US should reach out to their representative in regards to the Stop Online Suicide Assistance Forums Act that has been introduced in congress. This bill, if passed, could criminalize this community and hold it liable for simply hosting information.

    You should be able to locate and contact your represenative by going to this website. You can also contact Lori Trahan, the one spearheading this bill by calling her office at (202) 225-3411 or by leaving a message on the contact form on her site.

    One of the best ways to combat this is to make your voice heard. We're not political activists, but we made this notice to let you know that you do have a voice and that you do have representives that represent you in congress.

I’m really pale, like as pale as a human can get (not albino) and I also have face acne. Such a bad combo, I also get red when I sweat or when I stay in the sun for too long. I used to get verbally bullied a lot when I was younger, and even though it doesn’t happen now in front of me, I still know people are disgusted by me. Nothing I can do but ctb at this point

Have you tried treatments? Facial products, skin routines or even makeup? I don't wanna be that guy, but IF this is the only thing making you suicidal.. Please consider giving life a good shot.

You are not seriously considering suicide because of acne and childhood bullying?

Not sure if this post is for real but the vibes aren't what I would follow through on.

I suffer from extremly low esteem myself, but I got a truckload full of psych issues on top of that. Unorthodox looks are no longer a reason to hide yourself and bullies do what bullies do: They grow old and bother other people we don't even know.

PS: Try a google search on "disgusting" and you'll get plenty of hits that got nothing to do with you.

Hello. I'm sorry that you are hurting. Getting bullied really stinks!

If you don't mind my asking, how old are you? Lots of us have acne while in our teens that resolves as we get older. And I'm not sure what the most modern approach is, but serious cases can often improve or resolve if treated. And certain ways of caring for your skin can be very helpful. If you haven't already done it, I suggest you see a dermatologist. Getting red in the face under those circumstances is 100% NORMAL. You can wear sunscreen or a wide-brimmed hat to help with that. A dermatologist would be able to tell you what would be best. Sometimes the red skin can be from a different type of problem (medication side effect, rosacea, etc.). And rosacea can look like acne sometimes but is really a separate problem.

There’s no point. If ur talking about self tanners then that would look really fake on me. It would also be demoralizing having to apply that knowing it’s fake

try getting just a little sunshine not a whole bunch, like 15 to 30 minutes a day shirt off.... Light-skinned folks make vitamin D from sunshine, and that extra vitamin D might help your acne. Love to you from one who hates his non-blond hair, non-blue eyes, and too damn small and lightly built self.

There’s nothing I could do really I’ve tried a lot of things. I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s genetic and that’s it I guess. I live the same as other people I know with clear skin and it’s just me who’s the outlier. Also people assume I don’t go out in the sun because I’m pale but I do. I’m just cursed honestly
