Aby, just got through reading your entire log and i am so incredibly proud of you for holding on. Its really hard going through something and not knowing what the end results will be. In any event, remember that you've made incredible progress.

I am glad that you have made friends with thereisalwayshope as she is one of the sweetest people on here and probably went through something similiar that you have been going through.

Your log gives me hope that when i do decide to try the regimen, i may finally see consistent improvement instead of the constant disappointment that i have gone through since 7/11, when my acne 1st returned and i begun using different treatments. I am currently on accutane for the 3rd time and it is not working for me so i'm like 'why not give the regimen a shot, what do i have to lose'.

As for your cysts, have you tried SPIRO? That seems to work for some people with cystic acne and may be what you need to finally get clear alongside the regimen. Keep updating us.

Rooting for you girl!

Day 127

I still have two pimples on my chin. Two that I severely picked at haha. Every time I popped them they got filled with pus again but this time I know I got all the gunk out . Now the healing process begins . Hoping they scab and peel off soon .

.No worries I just admire people who keep postive after all its not the nicest thing to go through I find it so hard to be postive sometimes so it helps when i here people are doing their best to deal with this. Anyway I have a qoute for you:-

... If you can see yourself as how you wish you looked, then why cant you feel like you would if you actually physical looked that way. If you would be confident, and daring, and charming, then if you can truly see yourself that way those attributes will shine through anyways, because in truth they've always been there just waiting for you to set them free. People see what you show them.

Hey Abybar! I read through your whole log and as everyone has noted, it's so nice to see how positive you are about everything! I'd get through everyday so much easier if i had a mindset like yours haha :) I've started the regimen a few days ago and hoping i stick to it for as long as you did/for as long as I need to and eventually start seeing results sooner or later! Good luck and keep posting, I'll definitely be reading on :) hope things only get better from now!

DAY 140

WHAT CAN I SAY ? Well I am almost 5 months in the regimen.

Skin has 1 pimple that I extracted the pus from. Now I have two pimples hearings. So a total of 2 pimples .

Skin is not flaky just red . It's been like this for a couple of days now . Hmm very odd but I'm trying not to focus on that so much.

I have pitted and ice pick scars on both of my cheeks an temples . Hoping that one day in the future I can afford a laser treatment to minimize the appearance of those ugly suckers .

Other than that skin is doing Alright :)

5 MONTHS

WELL, nothin major maybe a small tiny pimples but nothing severe .

I still have many PIH some that we're caused due to my bad habit of OCD. Gah ! I need to stop picking ! It's constantly present in my mind . Picking picking .

Also, I dislike the fact that my peach fuzz is so noticeable .

Gee thanks to my friend who mentioned it to me . He said that when the sun hits my face is noticeable . How shattering !!!!

Anyways, talk to y'all soon . #Be Blessed or Die Trying.

Congrats!! I've been following your progress since month 1, so happy it's all working out for you. What do you use for your scabs? I got a facial 2 days ago and i have no clue what happened but I now have a huge dark red scab on my chin and I have no clue how to heal it quick, since I'm definitely not going to peel it off and leave a scar
