Stress = face break out

It's true, stress does make my face break out, and I hate it. It wasn't great prior to leaving Atlanta (by fact my father pointed this out to me) but it wasn't horrible either. However, the culmination of stress over the last two weeks at work has made every single zit appear on my face it seems. So much so that no massive amount of cover up will diminish it! (damn hormones too!)

Throughout the last few days, I decided to extend an outreach invitation of talking things over via coffee. I'm still waiting that reply which in and of itself is anxiety-provoking. I'm honestly not sure what has happened the last month in a half or so, but it is unfair for either of us to continue on this way without some sort of explanation from both of us. I'm hopeful...and hopeful my zits will disappear too.

Disclaimer: Although work is the center of my life right now (which also tells me I need more of a life), I have decided to refrain from going into much detail after my last few posts about work.

I'm right there with you with the stress and hormones! I'm hyper vigilant about my appearance, so zits only add to my stress. I hope work gets better for you, and it helps your skin to clear up. Sending {{{HUGS}}}your way!

Angela, thank you for your support. I'm hoping the zits will go away, though right now they appear to be staying. :-/

although 46, i still battle crater face. for the first four weeks of my new job, it was wild. i was completely broken out like i hadn't been in 30 years. sure, i do get a couple doozies every month, but this was truly something else. may it pass quickly for you. like you said, concealer doesn't always "hit the spot".

with your job, are you comfortable sharing a little more? i wonder what's going on and how you're doing. no matter what, i wish you the absolute best. this is tough stuff. take care, tiptoe

Tia, thank you for the support. It's a bit rough right now.

Melissa, thank you too for your everlasting support on many of my posts. You can feel free to e-mail me through my profile. It's the one I use for this blog, and I can go into more detail there.
