#3330774 Giving The Derma Another Go(Success With Acne Scar Treatment?)

Posted by HiImMatt on 03 March 2013 - 09:49 PM

Well about a year ago, I went to the derma for the treatment of my extreamly severe acne. The moment I walked in the door, accutane was prescribed to me, that actually help a lot, got rid of my most severe state of acne. I still get acne, just not constantly like I used to.

 

But now, Im giving it another go for the scars, but the thing is, will it help? Only one way to find out. Better than wasting money on stupid over the counter products. Who here has had success with scar treatment from a derma? Hypertrophic scars, pick axe, boxcar scars, rolling scars, you name it, I have it. Hopefully a light will shine for me.

2 years ago, I join acne.org. The people here were very understanding and kind to me. A lot of you help me out with things such what products to choose, helped motivate me, and inspired me. Now I wanna inspire you. 2 years ago, I was not the person I am today. I used to be a turtle in its shell that never popped its head out to see the world much. I also never tried to have anything to do with girls. Had no job, no license, nothing. But as of today, I am a licensed driver, GED graduate, and also have a fun job. Also have been talking to girls a lot more especially this certain girl at work. I used to think to myself day in and day out, "I'll never be worth anything, always be a monster, and have nothing". Well seems as though I underestimated myself back then, turns out I had it in me all along. I used to didn't wanna have nothing to do with going ANYWHERE at all. Anytime someone would mention something about going out, I would always say "no" from my mouth, but "yes" in my mind.

 

One life changing day, I snapped and said, "I can't take this life of self solitude anymore". And thats when getting my licenses all started, I remember being so nervous that I couldn't even write straight, my words looked like a 3 year old wrote them. But it was only the beginning of getting my life back on track that acne slammed me off of, and I hadn't been around people much for so long, so of course I was nervous. I had pass the written test just barely, then came my months of learning how to drive, I got it down pretty well. Next then came the true test, I, Once again, passed with barely just enough points, but I was screaming for joy so much at that point I didn't care how many points I missed, as long as I passed.

 

Next on my list was a job. I had searched many places and filled out many application, finally... A job appeared and an interview had been set. I actually came on here before the interview and asked you guys for support, thanks for that. When I went in, I was just as nervous or if not more nervous than when I went for the driving test. I went in and was out in maybe 10 mins. I kept my hopes up and pushed my acne worries to the side. 2 days later I got the phone call saying I will be hired, once again, I screamed for joy. My life seemed to get more on more back on track finally.

 

When I went in I didn't say nothing to nobody hardly. But as days turned to months, I had noticed a HUGE improvement in my confidence, I talk to everyone there and everyone seemed to take a liking to me, I always help people at work, and try and be fun to work with. As of next month, I will have been there a full year. My confidence with girls definitely improved since I meet this one girl, I talk to her all the time at work and shes so cool, and we have a lot in common. Shes a girl I never thought that would ever talk to guy like me, but it was only acne that made think that.

 

After the job the next thing I thought, no, not thought, I NEEDED to do this. Get my GED. I never went all the way through school, so I thought it would be best to have this, not only has a necessity, but an accomplishment. Well after 7 of intense studying months, I finally achieved it, something I always had doubts about obtaining. But I did, and had to give myself a pat on the back.

 

The moral this story is, You are, you. Acne is not the one in control of you, you are. You can easily overthrow it with just a little practice. And all you have to do is be around people more, and you'll learn most of them just don't care. Yeah, you have someone occasionally glance over at you, but whatever, it happens anyway, acne or not.

 

If I can do it, so can you. I suffered from the most severe acne of all, Acne conglobata. And with all these scars and marks its left me, I still choose to live my life. You might sit there with a few pimples on you face, saying, "I'm the most ugly person ever", well I wish I was you my friend, I'd trade all the acne and scars anyday for a few pimples.

 

You only have one life to live, so live it. At first you might be scared but it will blow over before you know it. And I wish you all the best.

#3300531 Should I Face The Facts?

Posted by HiImMatt on 06 November 2012 - 10:10 PM

That no derma could help my severe scarring, and that I have to live looking like a monster?

I dont want to waste money, I got lucky the first time with accutane clearing up most of the severe ones. But scars are a different story, I hear some people say, "theres nothing they'll be able to for your scars", and then I hear people say, "Yeah they can help them". So which is it?

I suffer from hypertrophic type scarring, sorta like keloid scars, but they actually fade with a LOT of time. I want the scars to be more less noticeable. I've got them all over my upper torso area(back, chest, face, neck,). I always think, ya know, what if one day a girl actually likes me and we get to the point were we wanna "you know" and she tries to take off my shirt, and sees all the horrible scarring, I always wondered what her reaction would be, probably run for the hills. Heck I even hate seeing myself in the mirror.

I got it ok with life right now, I got friends, even a few that are girls, I have good times, plan on going to collage, I have a job, all I had to do was show that I dont care, and just be me. Thats all it takes. But you cant help just wanting to look a little more decent, you know? Waking up everyday and seeing it just makes me go ughhhhh. For once I would like to go WOOO, Lol.

Do you guys think I cant be helped? Should I take the chance? I dont really have much too lose, except 120 bucks, lol. Honest opinions. Thanks.
