I'm new at this site and like most of you guys I'm in a constant struggle with acne. It's no longer just a struggle with acne, it's a struggle with self esteem and disatisfaction and lost control.
I feel like I'm the only one out there, I don't know anyone who've had these huge problems with acne, I feel like a monster.
It's like acne is eating up my face while I'm watching helpless.
The physiological impact it's had on me is enormous.
I have tried almost everything. Every cream on the market, antibiotics, birthcontrol pills, light therapy, unconventional stuff like homeophatic approach. NOTHING is working!!!
It's no longer the acne itself that buggers me- but the scars it leaves behind. I NEVER used to scar before which is probably the reason why I could stand it this long. Then i tried out roaccutane for about 10 days and had horrible reactions to it, which made me stop the course. And its after that my skin started scarring, could it be related??? When I ask my doctor she obviously denies this.
I feel like roaccutane might be my only go. Should I give it another try? Thing is I'm SO worried about catching on all these stuff I read about; brain damage, kidney failure, cancer, alzheimer?! who know what. It's hard to get what's true and what's only lies.
Generally I'm a worried person. I worry about everything, specially when it comes to medication and diseases. I would prob catch horrible side effects just cos I believe that 's what's gonna happen.
Anywho, please tell me about your experiences., or ideas. what worked for you? My acne would probably be considered moderate-severe. If you have any accutane experience let me know how you gone! Cheers // Blueberrie
