Letting Go and Letting God

Living Life

Posted by leelowe1, 03 November 2014 · 190 views

It's really weird for me to be writing a post entitled living life, especially when acne has dictated so much of my life.  I let it keep me imprisoned for two months in the summer of 2012 and I almost let it drive me to the point of wanting to end my own life.  Of course i have depression but acne was a big trigger for me and it has taken away s...

The Strength To Keep On Fighting

Posted by leelowe1, 23 October 2014 · 184 views

I want to start out by saying I am grateful for all the trials I have been through.  I have learned so much about myself and I have found that my support system is the best.  Also, I have come to learn that FAITH can make any hopeless situation not so hopeless because at the end of the day, there is a God who rises with the sun and sets with it....

When The Going Gets Tough....

Posted by leelowe1, 29 August 2014 · 225 views

It's pretty much a guarantee in life that we will face challenges.  Some will be temporary and some will be life long. Acne is my life long challenge and right now, it is tough.  At fist, it was just confined to one side of my mouth and then it spread to the other side.  It went up to my lips and down to my chin.  Now I have it on my c...

Had An Epiphany Today

Posted by leelowe1, 21 August 2014 · 215 views

While many of my fellow peers were probably shopping  or going to the beach or hanging out with friends, I took a ride to the cemetery in my area.  I've always driven past it and had always wanted to stop in but never did.  Well today was the perfect opportunity.  I brought a snack, my bible, my notebook, my pen and i just sat there....

Why Do We Go Through The Tough Times?

Posted by leelowe1, 17 August 2014 · 214 views

I have gotten to a point in my life where i don't feel the need to always question God for the things that happen to me.  It just becomes a part of life.  It doesn't make it any easier to go through these things none the less.  My acne for instance.  16 years and counting - the embarrassment, the struggle, the explaining to people what...

At The Crossroad

Posted by leelowe1, 05 August 2014 · 184 views

So many ions ago, the rap group 'Bone Thugs-n-Harmony' made a song called 'Meet me at the crossroads'.  It was basically talking about friends that had passed on and meeting them up in the afterlife.  Well the title of the song got me thinking that we all have many crossroads in our daily lives.  Times when we are faced with decisions, ofte...

The Blame Game

Posted by leelowe1, 23 July 2014 · 268 views

So as I sit in front of my laptop and type this, I have to say that having just celebrated  my 31st birthday yesterday has brought on some clarity on my acne situation.  As a person that has suffered with this disease since 15 with 1 or 2 years of clear skin due to medication/topicals, I have come to the epiphany that we as acne sufferers are ma...

Living Above It All

Posted by leelowe1, 17 July 2014 · 170 views

It's fascinating to me when I see people with adversity that go about their day like nothing is out of the ordinary.  Some of these people have life changing disabilities that are highly visible and yet they go out and LIVE not just EXIST.  I so want to be that person that overcomes.  I am struggling though, I truly am.  I know this is...

Peaks And Valleys

Posted by leelowe1, 13 July 2014 · 204 views

So anyone who has accomplished anything in life knows all about peaks and valleys.  We usually have to go through a ton of valleys before we make it to the peaks.  And even then, it doesn't imply that there will be no more turbulence to go through.  That's life.  Well right now, I am in a valley so deep that I can't even see the top of...

The Beginning......

Posted by leelowe1, 09 July 2014 · 217 views

Hi guys!  This is definitely not my first rodeo when it comes to blogging, especially when it comes to my acne but it is my first experience strictly devoted to the emotional aspect of having a skin disorder that most people grow out of by the time they're in their 30's.  Acne has had a more psychological impact on my life than any other single...
