In Topic: Ever Feel Suicidal?

12 September 2014 - 01:45 PM

yeah i agree if i had my scars on my body i wouldnt care at all. i dont even care about acne on my body because really i can hide it anytime i want! thank goodness spiro got rid of all. we all view our scars and stuff differently though but yeah apetwin you should go out and enjoy life because you could have it 10X worse and have scars where everybody can see them. i didnt get any scars till i was about 35 and i used to get so upset about having stupid red marks. i would do anything to go back to the time when i just had the red marks. i would have been so freaking happy! ugh its like you dont know what you got till its gone as they say. 

i will say though the longer you have the scars in some ways it gets easier because after a while you just get used to looking at them. its not that you can accept them but you can go about your day and not be freaking out about it every second.

yeah i can see being scared for sure about the tinnitus with the keflex. the only thing i can say is to try it and see how it goes. yeah mine went away it lasted i think for at least 5 years or so. the doctor said it would probably never go away too but thank god it did. it never really bothered me except for when i would go to sleep but many times i would just put on my ceiling fan and that would drown out the noise.

i sure hope spiro can help you since you have been through so much. you deserve to have something go your way for once. keep me posted on your progess and try to hang in there!

heck yeah for sure i think spiro is a miracle drug! what about keflex? would that bother that tinnitus? i can feel your pain i went to many clubs back in the day and had tinnitus for years i just got used to having that ringing in my ears and then one day like 5 years later it went away. i was so worried though i thought i was going deaf so i had to get a hearing test through my doc but thank god everything was fine there.

i 100% know how you feel with the anxiety thing its a real bitch. i think that has to be like the worst feeling ever but just know once you get on spiro and you start to clear up then that anxiety will slowly fade away but you need to give it time to work. it could take 6-9 months to fully kick in.

thank you so much i am so glad that something 100% worked for me its been a long road the last 16 years. keep me updated on your progress and stuff! good luck with everything take care!!


In Topic: After Fraxel Dual

08 September 2014 - 08:21 AM

yes that is normal. i just had the fraxel dual myself and the place i went to has me using witch hazel toner every time i wash my face. that helps to exfoliate the skin while healing so that you dont get the whiteheads. its very gentle and feels nice on the skin. i had to use it 3 times a day for a week. also you will look very red and your skin will feel like sandpaper and then it will slowly peel off. i think i started peeling on day 4 and was done by day 7. 

good luck to you!

good luck to you! i think the spiro will work so well for you but i think you need at least 100mg a day for it to really work. i tried everything myself and had cystic acne on and off for years and am 37 now and spiro is the only thing that has 100% worked for me over the long term. this dec will be 2 years on it and it has really saved my life. i no longer have to worry about what will be popping on my face everyday and my anxiety levels are slowly going down even though i am still trying to fix my scarring. i've had no side effects at all so i think you will be fine. i was so nervous too and put it off for a few years but everything has been fine with me. also just to note a lot of people have had normal hormone levels and still have hormonal acne and take spiro. good luck to you!
i would get on a good quality antibiotic though when you start just to avoid any bad breakouts.
