Made myself ugly
I made myself ugly by washing my face too much. I became obsessive compulsive about washing my face. I thought it would heal my acne but it just made it worse. I used Spectro Gel antiseptic cleanser because the drug store lady told me I had to kill bacteria on my face. I also used Neutrogena soap also, and Noxzema too. To top it off I would put rubbing alcohol right on my face because I thought my face was a breeding ground for bacteria. But what I regret most, is pulling hair out of my face because I thought it would help in some way. When I did it I was looking for some way to make a difference, but it just made it worse. This all happened when I was 14 years old. I'm 30 now and life hasn't been the same since. I hate my face. My skin is dry and visibly irritated and inflamed at all times. I also get unusual puss coming out of my pores whete my hair follicles used to be.
If I had just left it alone I could have had a different life. I locked myself into am emotional prison and I've been sad for 16 years. I don't think I will ever be happy again. I miss my life I had when I was 14 and will always regret what I did.
