I've been thinking about writing this blog for a while now. The thought of putting my thoughts into writing initially seemed like a good idea....a way to vent.
However, in action my feelings have changed, I'm sat here thinking "will anyone actually read this?". I suppose I will, later down the line, lets just see how it goes.
Anyway....I'm Dan, I will be 25 in a couple of weeks. I have had Acne since I was 14. Nearly 11 years with spots. I hadn't even worked that out until now!
Back in high school I never imagined I would still have Acne at this age. That though really bothers me sometimes.
I been through the whole run of the mill, high school, college, university and now full time work.
I work for a small company which employs around 25 people. I hold a position with a little authority. I'm not the oldest or the youngest.
I am the only one with spots.
How can anyone ever take me seriously as a business professional when I still look like I'm going through puberty.
Still, I live with it. Keep my chin up and plough on through. I actually recently got engaged. I'm going to get married. Woah! So here starts my plan. No spots on the wedding day!
I've been on Roacutane when I was younger, ticked that box. I've been on several versions of medications as well. I've also lived by the regimen for a year. Still no solution.
My doctor has just prescribed some Isotrexin (Isotretinoin). I have decided to use that in the place of PB.
I will keep you all posted on my progress. In the mean time I'm going to to continue to use this wonderful tool to write down my trials and tribulations!
