Bummed..

It's been a few days since I updated you guys, I'm sorry. It's been a rough week really. I had two new cystic bumps pop up under my jaw/neck area and a weird breakout of tiny bumps all over my face. I think it was the Evening Primrose I tried to incorporate into my daily regimen...at least I hope so. I also tried to start taking a probiotic to help with the antibiotic, but I stopped that just in case it was the cause. Guess I'll never know if EPO works or not. My skin was healing so well and the

Feeling optimistic today

Today is starting off pretty well. I still have the leftover red spots from that weird breakout I got, but for the most part my face is relatively calm. My texture is still about the same, except for that first little scarred pore that I mentioned in my last post. It looks a little more shallow than it used to. I could be completely crazy but I think it might be healing?? I'm still not washing that area with anything aside from water once a day and the only topical I use there is Jojoba oil with

So hard to keep positive...

I think I spoke too soon when I said I hadn't had any new breakouts. It seems I lied because the very next day I had a little constellation on my right cheek. they aren't huge or cystic and will probably fade in another day or two, but it just sucks when I feel like I'm doing everything right only to take a step back. My texture is, more or less, the same. Some days it looks worse, others it looks a little better. I feel like the days that it looks better are just days where I am more body posit

Today was strange...

Let me start by saying, I am happy with no new breakouts. My skin seems to be responding well to the mix of birth control and antibiotics. I'm just treating hyper-pigmentation and red spots now. What I am not happy about, is the texture still...I feel like there is new pitting/scarring going on but I can't really tell if it's that or I'm just letting myself look closer. I haven't touched Retin-A in a while, so if there are new scars or enlarged pores, it's likely an after affect. I can't really

Quick Update!

I started taking the supplements I mentioned a few posts ago and I don't know if I'm seeing things or if my skin looks more "supple". I think it's a little too early to tell but I somehow feel better about the way it looks. I did want to mention that I have not taken the Evening Primrose because I felt that three supplements would be too much. I am also on Minocyline and birth control so I have to be careful with when I take things and how much. I still have stretched pores that look scarred and

The day doesn't matter, just an update!

I've fallen off the daily update thing since the beginning so I'm just going to start updating whenever I get the time, maybe a few times a week. I don't expect a whole lot of improvement in such a short amount of time anyway.  I've completely revamped my diet and I think it's made me feel a little better from the inside out. It's something I suggest to everyone who may be struggling with skin issues. Even if we don't really feel amazing about what's on the outside, at least we know that we a

Day 6

So, today was a little easier mentally, though my skin hasn't really shown much of a change. I don't really expect to see any change for a long time, but it doesn't stop me from being hopeful. I don't have a whole lot to say today, but I will offer this: If you are going through a hard time and ever need someone to talk to, you can message me, email me, comment here, I don't care. I am willing to talk to whoever needs it. I know what you are going through and I know it's hard. Please don't do

Day 4

Fist off, I'm sorry to anyone who might be reading this for not writing yesterday. I know there are plenty of you out there struggling with the same thing that I am. Before I delve too deep, let me say, if you are on an anti-depressant and made it through the first week of adjusting, I am proud of you and I mean that. I could not, it was too tough and it was causing me to breakout even more, as Zoloft actually affects the way that hormones are distributed throughout the body. Who knew! Wish my D

Day 2

Last night was hell. Zoloft, is my new worst enemy. I felt like I had every symptom I could have. Fever, chills, cold sweats, shakiness, you name it. I didn't like my complexion at all when I looked in the mirror. It hurt to see it so rough and uneven, after the shower it always looks better for a moment until the moisture fades and my skin returns to it's old self. Good news is there are no new cysts on my jawline still and for that I am thankful. I can't really tell if my pores next to my nose

Day 1 of Many

Today is day one of my regimen to try and combat this newly acquired skin texture. After having a rough breakout for no reason that I could fathom, I turned to Trentinoin (Retin-A) as a fix to help with the irritation and down right pain. I am in the military, which requires me to wear my hair up for work and it is the most depressing thing to do when you know that all of your flaws are there for the world to see. I don't wear makeup, because by the end of a shift it's melted off anyhow.  So, af
