When Do I Get A Break



I have been on Metformin for three weeks now and I just don't feel like it is helping at all. If anything I feel like it is making my skin worse - it feels oily and disgusting I have smaller spots all over my face where I don't usually get any and my acne is red flared faded and disgusting. I can't handle looking in a mirror. I don't recognise myself. I'm teary and depressed. I don't want to go out or see people. I keep trying to put things into perspective to make myself feel better but I can't seem to do it. I have dreams about waking up and seeing my skin smooth and clear again. After two courses of Roaccutane I feel like this is so unfair, which sounds childish but I just feel like I'm owed a fucking break for once. I need help.

There is no way I'd go on accutane again. For me, it obviously doesn't work as the route of my problem is hormonal.
