In Topic: Big City Vs. Small Town

08 July 2013 - 10:37 PM

I like both. I grew up in a "town" of less than 500 people and I currently live in Austin, Texas, which has a population of 800,000+ and growing! It's hard to compare when it comes to my skin because when I was more insecure I lived in a small town where everybody knew my business, and I went to school with the same kids for years. I moved here last year and as a 24 year old, I see myself independent of how my skin is doing. Austin is a very laid-back and accepting place though...judgement is something I wouldn't expect at all here.

In Topic: How ya feelin' about your acne today?

Pretty alright...had a bit of a breakout because I ran out of my acne products, but it'll be back on track soon enough. =)

In Topic: It Been So Long....

10 December 2012 - 08:47 PM

I know it's difficult, and as a teen I used to be INCREDIBLY frustrated when my mom would say "oh you'll grow out of it!" and...I never did. Even now I have to 'maintain' my acne, meaning I use Dan's Regimen and it keeps it under control, but I cannot just use nothing, or the acne will persist.

Instead of throwing a pillow across the room and stomping my foot, I learned to accept it as a part of me. Not a good or a bad part, but just one element. Just like my straight hair, my eye color, my body shape...it's one part of me. But what it brought me, or forced me to learn, was so much more important. And that's what acne reminds me of now, personal growth. Try to work towards that...because you'll be a much happier and satisifed person, trust me. It's difficult and yet so worth it!

In Topic: Accutane Video Journey

25 November 2012 - 08:05 PM

I like the idea of a video log, so that's a great thing to begin. I haven't been on Accutane personally but my fiancé was, for quite severe acne (way moreso than yours), and he had success, albeit it was slow to begin. You seem to have a great attitude about it and that makes quite the difference.

I'm going to move this to the Accutane logs though, is there any reason that it wasn't there to begin with?

Keep updating us and we'll happily support you in your journey. =)

In Topic: Here Come The Dreaded Holidays..

I agree with the above poster. Don't let your insecurities or perceptions ruin an otherwise fun time! I guarantee you won't remember how you felt that day about your skin if you just embrace yourself, flaws and all, and enjoy the holidays!
