Blog One: How It All Began...

Hello fellow users,

My name is Jessica, but call me Jessikur, I insist.

All throughout high school, I had mild acne. I never really paid attention to it. I washed my face, put on mild acne medications and went on with my life. It wasn't until my Senior year that the horror began. I had a serious boyfriend, I was stressed about school and drama, and all that good stuff. My face.... became the Sierra Mountain Range. I broke out horribly around my chin and cheeks. My forehead too. It was my worst nightmare. I'd cry a lot, pick, and I was a mess.

This past summer I went on a trip to Mexico. It was my worst nightmare. Everywhere I went people stopped me and asked me what happened to my face. Children's comments hurt the most because they told the truth. I then visited a very popular Dermatologist. He said "En tres meses, vas a estrenar una cara nueva!" "In three months, you'll have a new face!". I was thrilled. Finally someone is helping me.

Sure enough, a week later, everything was changing. My face felt great, I came back to the states and my mother was shocked. Its been 14 weeks since the day I saw the dermatologist, and my life has turned around. I wear less make up, my face has cleared up, and my selfesteem is a bit higher.

But i still have one problem..... scars.

This is where I end this blog entree....

Yea i know what you mean about them meddeling kids... I work at a cafeteria & if i ever go a day without wearing make up i am sure to get a good question.. like, "What happen to your face??"

It makes me sad & mad because people just don't know what we've been through & i think the most help we can get from someone is if they don't ask us anything about our face,.. & just look at us normally.. But that's just me i am a sensitive person... Funny, i never use to be a sensitive person, but this acne has made me a more deeper,more humble, compassionate & sensitive person... I think people can be a jerks even if their not trying to be.. I hate it when someone you know talks to you about your skin issues & they have no idea what it is to be acne ridden especially when your finally finding contentment.. I just wanna tell them my problem is not theirs it's myne.

That so true, I have 4 people in my household who are over reacting about my acne and its so frustrating! Why can't they just let me be. Ugh.
