This is my first ever post, so it might be a little crap.
Since coming off accutane at the end of September 2012, my acne is dramaticly better, however just recently (since January 2013) i've started breaking out again. Its not as cystic or inflamed as before, which is good. But it's really started to knock my confidence, I'm not going to lie to you and claim I'm the world's most confident man anyway. I just hate having acne, I'm 22 now I thought this was a teenage problem.
I didn't get acne until I was 17, so I have life experience of being a young adult with clear skin. Life's 10x easier with a good complexion!!! The way people treat you, even the way you treat yourself. I feel everyones much more friendly towards you, especially women. I used to be able to talk to them, I used to enjoy trying to chat up women now it's a bloody fear. Acne's made me paranoid about my skin all the time, I know i shouldn't care and my "acne's not that bad anymore" but I just can't help but feel worthless all the time.
The main reason I'm writing this is to really just let out all my little problems, I just feel trying to talk to friends who have no experience with acne completely pointless because all I ever seem to get is "your acne isn't that bad anymore or I don't really notice your skin". They told me it wasn't that bad a few years ago, so I put off going to a dermatologist because I thought I was being paranoid about my skin, I thought I was going mental! Then when I finally went to the dermatologist I was told I had severe cystic acne on my face... which was actually a relieve to hear.
Sorry I've really drifted off topic, I'm breaking out again, I'm taking 10 grams of b5 Vitamin and one b Complex vitamin a day to really try and control my acne, should I go on accutane again??? If eat junk food I breakout, If i drink alcohol I breakout, if i drink protein shakes ( yeah I workout) I break out, if I don't eat enough veg or fruit I break out. I'm doing all these little things to try and stop Acne, but I'm not having a good quality of life. I just want to be normal, I just want to be free! Thankyou for reading!!!
