Will The Cruel Comments Of People Ever Stop?

Hey thanks smile.png

Yeah hope so, he does seem to be one of the 5% - sad that there's only a small percentage of people who are genuine and kind in this world.

Wow I would be more than willing to try that Saw Palmetto stuff, not on BCP so for me that's not an issue. Where do you buy it? I am between USA and UK so have access to shops both sides of the pond smile.png Sounds like it is kind of like a herbal version of the pill Dianette which is anti androgen which I tried back when I was about 18 before going down the Accutane route, it did help for a few months then acne came back with a vengence worse than ever before so that's why I had to resort to Accutane at age 20.

Haha yeah I feel your pain and totally understand, keep treating yourself to the chips hun because I truly feel that in most cases acne is not affected by diet, wish it was that simple to cure things but unfortunately no, dammit! And if ever you feel guilty just be like me and ask yourself why so many of your friends have a junk food lifestyle yet remain acne free? Therefore why should be feel bad for having the occasional treat alongside an otherwise healthy diet?! On that note, I'm off to enjoy some Ben & Jerry's guilt free! smile.png

Oh girl, i would really advise trying saw palmetto for at least two months, just to see if it helps. It helped me. I can feel it because chin pimples cannot magically get smaller and less visible. And my skin seems smoother and clearer (hence my aunt's stupid comment about scars). I live in Vancouver and saw palmetto can be found in any drug store... you do not need prescription because it is a herb. I take 583 mg twice a day (Nature's Way brand). So far, I have not experienced any side effects.

Hun, if you went through accutane, I have a feeling taking this won't be a problem. But maybe your breakout is a fluke too ? Cause you said it came suddenly.

Also, I read that women take saw palmetto against hair loss. I am not imagining things: I really noticed that my hair does not fall out as it used to. I know that my acne is hormornal also because my hair started thinning at the age of 23, when the acne horror started.

Hope all is well smile.png! Good night lady smile.png!!!

My theory is that if you are more loving to yourself then other people's opinion's will cease to effect you as much. If you're happiness is reliant on the outside then you'll forever be a prisoner. My strategy is to wake up in the morning look in the mirror, cup my balls and say you're the f****** man!!!!!! It sounds absurd but I feel like 8 feet tall after doing it. Some days though I'm more vulnerable, some days extremely vulnerable but usually when I try and do something positive and be loving to myself my capacity to go out there in the world increases! Praying also helps me, to be honest I don't know who I'm praying too just something more powerful than myself, and I feel like a right mug getting on my knees and sticking my bum in the air and praying but it helps!!!!!!
