I've decided tonight that it's time for me to leave. I've found something that works for me (beyaz and spiro)-- so continuously doing research and arguing online is not good for me or my soul. I become obsessed with looking up information and helping other people if they have questions regarding things I know about. It's fine in theory, but in reality, I feel like I'm losing a bit of my life to it. I'm leaving in three weeks to begin my Air Force career-- I need this time to focus on more important things.
I thank everyone at acne.org for their help in spreading such wonderful information, but I'm sad that there are people on this site that hurt others and give out false information as fact. It makes me stressed out, and stress only means one thing for me...acne and more picking.
Anyway, for those of you who helped me with my compulsive skin picking, I thank you. I also thank everyone for helping me find what actually makes my skin consistently clear... It has been life-changing to say the least. I'm almost to the point where being without makeup doesn't scare me to death.
Please keep the positivity alive on this site. Acne is such an emotional rollercoaster for people...stop being so cold and matter-of-fact with things. There are ways to convey information without hurting another person or making them feel stupid. Be nice. We are not robots, we are living, breathing souls that deserve each others' truest sympathies.
Good luck and clear skin to you all
