In the morning when i cleaned my face i was feeling kinda okey.. like yeah i don`t look good with all that acne but i don`t care, i accept it. - like usually.
but today in the school i was starting to feel bad because other people is just like pushed away from me because of my acne.. one moment they talk to me normaly and the other they`re like "o yeah okey, i gotta do some other things" . i can`t force people to like me you know.. i have accepted that i have acne i almost never restrict my self to do things because of it.
some ppl here says that you must accept it and live your life fully. but i am.. and i love life.
and still from the other side - i can`t live it fully without ppl accepting me how i am - with acne... so what`s the point then... you know.. aghh i just feel a bit depressed right now.. haven`t felt that way for some time..
i had friends but i lost them all when my acne got worse and i started to hide from them.. yeah- my fault.
but now i doubt that i will get new REAL friends until i`ll be acne free. or new girlfriend(before the bad acne came i usually had attention from many girls).. i guess i just have to wait till my acne will be cured and so the barrier that pushes ppl away will disappear aswell..so i can TRULY live life fully.
that`s how i feel...

Feeling like shit. Day 22 of accutane, going through what I believe is an initial breakout. Either way, it's worse than before as my relatives nicely told me. Put off social arrangments with friends and told them I was in another state for the holidays because of how self conscious I am about my skin. I'm being completely serious about this: probably the darkest time of my life. sad.gif

@nutsytmom

Well for what I've seen it'll work out! Don't let it ruin your holidays!! Accutane will pay off in the long run, keep your mind set to the end result biggrin.gif

When you are going through a 'dark time' it is best to be around people who love you for YOU. Takes your mind off the 'bad'

I feel great. I'm sticking with my healthy diet/lifestyle, and see the results daily (as my old acne dries up). Life is a gift and I need to remind myself everyday that there are people out there dying of serious ailments...acne won't kill me.

Feeling a little discouraged. Just at the five week mark when I saw my huge purging breakout start to clear, and I had nothing new for three days, I have a big red under the skin mark on my forehead and two small whiteheads. I'm hoping they go away soon. I'm hoping things continue to get better and better. Overall, I still look better than I did two weeks ago. And I feel confident enough to look people in the face and smile smile.gif

Anyway Does anyone know if diabetes can cause acne?


I have searched the net & found that diabetes type 2 can cause adult acne.

P.S.I don't understand why i can't insert a link to the info i have found. eusa_think.gif


Damn I'm a teenager lol, I'm actually going to ask my doctor next time I see him which is in 2 weeks

I feel pretty good, in a holiday mood.
Sadly pictures are not forgiving, my red marks in photos make me look like i have A MILLION zits when in actuality I don't have as many as I did last week and they've gone down. Bleh!

Still in a decent mood though.

Doing well, I feel some new zits coming in, under the skin [on my chin], kinda hurt. My chin looks like a battlefield; it's where I've been breaking out most. eusa_eh.gif

Been using Neutrogena's On-The-Spot and it works pretty well so far, it's fightin' a mean battle on my stupid chin rolleyes.gif

I'm feeling rather awful about mine. It is funny too, because i'm actually having one of my "good" periods where I don't have much new development. My face is still an utter mess though, racked with scars and hyper-pigmentation.

Feeling alright, got a handful of active spots but nothing too major. I'm 75% clear since stopping the Ziana and BP and switching to vitamins a week ago.
