Hey, everybody. I thought this would be a good thread in which to introduce myself.
Well, my latest inflammation is slowly dying down, the pigmentation is starting to fade due to liberal applications of petroleum jelly, and today I'm feeling pretty good about my face. To be honest, I wish I felt so good about other "flaws" as I'm feeling about my acne right now. Although, on the other hand . . .
It is frustrating. At 27, having started breaking out at age 10, I'm feeling a bit like Danny Glover in Lethan Weapon--I'm too old for this sh**! In addition, I find the timing of my flareups rather frustrating. Aren't women supposed to be more attractive while ovulating? It's like my face somehow can't handle all the sexy I'm feeling and just explodes. Oh, well.
I have to say, though, these forums usually cheer me up when I'm feeling like an outcast due to my skin. That's mainly why I decided to finally create an account instead of lurking forever. It's nice to be in the company of (mostly) supportive folks who share a common bane, haha.
Lots of good wishes to you all.
