It’s crazy to think how much my skin controls my day-to-day life. I cancel plans. I go to bed early to slab on creams, hoping for a better tomorrow. I try not to let the dots control my life, but the realty is they do and they always have since I was 14 or so. They make me feel small, less than who I am. They diminish my confidence.
