Rebirth.

Quick update: I've been eating and drinking raw and organic for the past couple weeks, but yesterday I decided to really change my lifestyle 100%, attitude and all. No more cleansers and chemicals only 100% Pure Raw Organic Honey, a GOOD ATTITUDE, and the occasional honey/avocado or honey/banana mask. I ALREADY see a difference, I'm not kidding. My skin is peeling off! It's shedding it's old skin and starting fresh! My fiance is flying in tomorrow night. I haven't seen him in

going backwards

My face stings. and burns. and itches. ALL THE TIME. and it's hard not to scratch and touch it!!!!! I've been eating so healthy and sticking to the regimen and I finished my antibiotics for the infection and it's only getting worse, it seems. The bumpiness is back, there are new whiteheads EVERYWHERE, the lump in my neck is still there, my pee is highlighter yellow (which is crazy because I literally drink 2 gallons of water a day and pee like 1,000 times a day) I

now you're all gone, got your makeup on and you're not comin' back

My fiance is coming home in 7 days and we're going to finalize the marriage papers at the courthouse, so I'm gonna be married and moved away very soon! Acne.org regimen day 8 or 9...and tomorrow's my last day of Keflex and Bactrim. I'm glad to get off those pills because they made me so itchy. Although, I'm praying that this continues to heal without medication. My skin is healing, slowly, but the scars and red marks are devastating. I had a terrible skin picking episode last night an

Bitter sweet

I'm really happy to report that my skin is healing rather well. It still makes me sad when I look in the mirror and think that it will never look the same again. The scarring and redness is still very prominent. I have hope but I also don't like to get my hopes too high... This whole thing has really humbled me. That's all I have to say today.

I'm scared. I was up until 7am, just tossing and turning. The lump in my neck has gotten bigger now and it hurts. I did some research about thyroid disease and such. I definitely need to see a doctor. I'm very worried. My skin is clearing, by the way. It's day 6 of the regimen and the folliculitis medication. Only 4 more days of the prescription left, thank God. All of this must be tied together somehow. It would explain the way I've been feeling, that's for sure. And definitely

quatro.

FINALLY started my period today!! Woohoo. I've never been so relieved in my life, haha. It's day 5 on the regimen/medication and I'm seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. I mean besides the redness and dry skin, there are less pustules and papules than before. It doesn't look as infected anymore and it's not as itchy either. I'm hoping by this time next week that I'll see some real improvements where I feel I can leave my house once again (It's been a week)... I'm starting to feel like myse

My sunburn is fading, thank GOD! But my face is still very red and irritated right now, almost inflamed. It itches and looks almost like a rash. It's been a struggle every single night to fall asleep. Today is day 4 on my anti-folliculitis/acne breakout journey. Still on Bactrim, twice a day. Still popping 4 Keflex a day. (500mg) [bUT I'M NOT SURE HOW LONG I'M SUPPOSED TO WAIT IN BETWEEN PILLS] Still following the Acne.Org DKR, as precise as humanly possible. I started taking

O, NO! I didn't wear any sunscreen today and my face is as red as this guy's >> It hurts so much. I was only outside for FIVE minutes because I was trying to get my dog to come back inside the house. Crap. Anyway, it's day 3 on the regimen and on my folliculitis medication and I'm seeing ....subtle improvement. I'm also going to start eating cleaner like I used to (more fruits & vegetables, less dairy, and of course I rarely ever eat meat so that's not hard to cut out). And I'

...Well, as all of you that have been reading my posts know, I've been dealing with a very severe and very SUDDEN "acne" breakout for the past month or so...turns out, I've been going about it all wrong. So!, I went to the walk-in clinic yesterday. Thanks to Olive14! I started researching and looking up images for staph infections after reading her comment about the possibility of a staph infection. I couldn't believe what I was seeing. Folliculitis (staph) looks identical to what I'm deali
