And this would accomplish what in the end? So,  he agrees with you his line of treatment won't change. He doesn't like... Nothing changes.

Most docs I know of would laugh at you.  Some may agree but still push for medical treatments others would use science to prove whatever you provided as inconclusive.  

Just sayin

Stop retin a,  get on hormonal  birth control to lessen your hormonal swings.  Obviously it gets worse when you're on your period or just before.  This may help some.

I would do this because I think it's important to get people's stories heard.  I would consider my self a successful person career and education wise like,  but yet I still suffer.  I often feel that people in my position are regarded to a higher standard and are believed go be impervious to acne.  Which is not true as we know.  But I use to think it.  Because at the time I only seen myself as flawed and only seen flawless people around me  people with what seemed as happy,  successful lives.  

This all lead me to think worse of myself for one but more importantly it prevented me from acting on my dreams or aspirations.  Ance becomes a mental hindrance,  throwing a wrench in your plans.  Always. I pushed through it and I believe everything other peeps need to know they can too,  no matter how bad their situation is.  

So yes I would tell my story

Work had been steady and it doesn't help that I eat anything in site at times.  

I like the acv Aztec healing mask. Compared to other masks it doesn't burn or sting.  I'd like to alternate it with a acv toner. Some sort of astringent that I could use after shaving besides witch hazel which does not like my skin.  I'm thinking on the lines of aloe vera as a diluting agent for redness,  I need a moisturizing base too. Idk currently one spot is healing.  Another stubborn small bump appeared but is staying down. Just needs to stay that way and go away.

My work friend seems to think I just need to "let loose"  and not care about women and just travel.  I need to spend time with myself,  love my self as she says.  She may have a point.  I still think traveling with someone to places is better.  But the care free part I may just need to do.  I am independent either a care free attitude but I guess I am worrying about my future too much.... But I want kids I say.
