It's so funny how I am a completely different person when my skin is looking better...it's like I have split personalities, dies anyone else find this is the case?

 

 

yes, im so much more talkative on a good skin day!

i usually try to go with the "i dont care" attitude. i still wear makeup, but its just how my face is and if someones going to give me **** for something i cant control that just says so much about their qualities, not mine

I am the same way.  When i am consistently acne free, i can and i do do everything.  When i'm in the midst of acne hell, i become a turtle in my shell.   It's a bad habit to have but acne is definitely a disease of the mind as much as it is a disease of the skin.  There was a member on here , treat acne, that was awesome about not letting her acne depress her.  Her zeal for life definitely was an inspiration to me.  You should check out some of her posts.

It's a rocky road but like everything else in life, there is always a beginning and an end.  Here's to finding my end.

 

God is good to me..........more than I deserve.

 

James 1:2-4

Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
