Hey all, my name's Jen and (evidently) I am new here. I've been struggling with acne for 3/4 years now and it started hitting me hard this year especially how much going through it alone can damage you. I don't really have anyone to talk about it with so I decided to join here both to 'be' amongst people who understand this particular issue and just to be involved in the community. I think it's really an incredible thing to be keeping up, especially as acne has a very unique way of being able to get into your psyche and mess with your mind... So thank you to everyone who helps keep this fantastic site up and running! I basically have a (for back of a better word) volatile health situation and so once I discover and treat one thing which causes the acne, it gets better for a couple of months and then something else in this lovely bod of mine goes out of wack, and I have to fix that. I currently take many many supplements and am on quite a strict diet, I mostly eat salad/veggies and this amazing stuff called Futurelife. One of my biggest issues is the fact that practically every pimple I've ever had in my life didn't want to say a permanent goodbye to my face so I have quite severe scarring... Though I have had great success recently with lemons which has done wonders for my confidence. I try to keep positive and at peace with myself but sometimes the acne gets too much, especially in those extreme rough patches. Alas, I have come into a mindstate of greater self-love than I've really had before and I'm incredibly grateful for all the things in my life which have led me to this place.
So that's me! Hello, everyone
