“You Look Disgusting”

I saw this video today on Buzzfeed and it broke my heart. I got pimples in high school but my skin was generally very smooth between the random breakouts and then, during my sophomore year in college, my face turned into a bumpy mess. There’s white and red bumps and they won’t go away no matter what I do. I’ve spent hundreds on prescription medicine, over the counter medicine, home remedies, and light therapy with no success. It makes me feel awful. I don’t go anywhere without makeup on and even with it I feel ugly. I try to tell myself that other people don’t notice it as much as I do but seeing this just confirms what other people are thinking. If these people knew how bad these words hurt, maybe they would reconsider posting them.
