I know exactly how you feel. I isolate myself, I've called in sick and skipped because of a really bad acne day. I stay in my room too much and try to hide. I'm fighting trying to be depressed, but I'm embarrassed to look people in the eyes and I always have my head bent down low to the ground. :(

To anyone reading this on roaccutone I urge you to not take that poison it will ruin youre looks forever acne is temporary and if you increase youre nutrition and exercise and get natural products to help you out you will save youre body a lifetime worth of health problems caused by 1 horrific drug roaccutone is just not worth it but don't feel depressed when the acne goes you will look good the scars will heal!!. just don't go on roaccutone because it changed youre DNA so healing for scarring is alot harder.. peace and good luck x

Im on my 2nd course of accutane_acnotin brand.... If i.m still not clear, and my derm would tell me to take a third round, i think i will decline.... New resolution... I.ll eat healthy and avoid foods that aggravate acne...ando also trying to use all organic products.... Will try the wholistic approach.... Hope and pray it works... Please be good 2013

My acne looked identical to yours a few months ago and i understand how much it can destroy your self esteem and how hard it is to control! My Derm also believed my acne was due to hormones, stress of uni and touching my face too much. He put me on dianette 35, tetracycline lymecycline and epiduo. Its taken 3 months to kick in but im slowly starting to see progress. Honey masks are also great

Just remember you're beautiful and it wont be like this forever! Good luck ! Posted Image

I feel your pain I feel the same exact way and I can't do it anymore. I feel like I'm just going through the motions and I don't want to live this way anymore specially because I have a 9month old and I want to start going out and doing things with her and I don't because I'm just to self conscious that everyone is looking at my acne! :/ i don't do anything anymore because of it. And my family doesn't understand why I get so upset about it or when people come over I hide in my room if I dont have make up on :/ (which just ends up making it looking worse but i would never go out in public without it) i dream of being one of those girls who can just wake up and walk out the door with no make up! I'm currently on tretinoin 0.5% and clindymacin and doxycycline and I'm in the initial breakout stage and I'm feeling even worse now cause it worse than before I started :( but I'm going to stick with it and see what it does praying that this will help me! Hope you have luck too! Keep your head up!

hey there guys....... hope ya'll are doing fine... well today i feel weird... up and down.... up and down...the roller coaster ride with acne+bipolar......that is my life....

 

Keribee.... you are beautiful...... and i strongly encourage you to stop putting that make up gunk on your face.... believe me it'll do more harm than good...

like you.... i was also ashamed to go out looking like a red zit faced monster.... so what would i do? i would cake on the concealer,  the powder...all that gunk even if just to go and walk the dog.... ugh i hated it..... i researched like crazy (still am...) and decided for the better that i would never ever put on any kind of make up (except maybe lipstick coz i won't be putting it on my skin!)... haven't put on make up for more than 2 years now.....

 

just imagine my face after a derm appointment and i have to go home and just having to ride public transportation...... i would cry myself to sleep everynight coz it doesn't just hurt physically, but the emotional damage that acne has done to me is just unbearable... it's the kind of thing that i wouldn't even wish for my mortal nemesis!

 

anyway...sorry about the babble..... do what you gotta do.... stick with your regimen.... it'll all work out for us... hope and pray....

wish you all the best!

sooo... i've been crying myself to sleep again... every night... the whole week..... what the F is up with that?......

another breakout= another breakdown.....

 

there i am watching "my big fat greek wedding" on tv and the next thing i know i'm crying myself silly...AGAIN.... and then i stared at myself in the mirror..... how i wanted to punch and smash that mirror to pieces..... i don't know what to think anymore.....this pain is just unbearable..... trying my hardest to still avoid any reflection coz that'll lead to me,obsessing about my skin again.

 

will this ever end?
