Feeling Down



So it's been over two weeks on the lymecycline, and it'll have been two weeks on dianette tomorrow. I'm just feeling down because my acne is still really bad, and I need to go back to university next week. It's one thing to hide away at home and convince yourself that it is getting better, but it is another to face reality. I keep trying to focus on the positives - my forehead is so much better, really smooth and only one or two spots. The tops of my cheeks just have marks on them, and my nose is clear. But my jawline is a mess of spots and small cysts, with loads of dry flaky bits and raised red bumps. I keep hoping I'll wake up and it'll be so much better.

I turned twenty the other day, and I don't want to be wasting my life, hiding away. But at the moment I have no self-confidence. I know it can take a long time for this medication to work, and that I'm just being impatient, but I'm so fed up of this! Just feeling really low.


Hey. Try to keep your spirit up. A happy you makes for a happy body. Your acne knows when you are down and feeds on it. I'm day 13 of Accutane. It's so hard but I'm just thinking positive.

Lymecycline worked great on my skin for 2 years!!! xx
