Day 30



Yesterday I had no active acne on my face. This morning I woke up with two small whiteheads on my chin. As the day progressed, I noticed a considerably sized papule on my right cheek, then a lump on the left side of my mouth and then I felt two more bumps (probably nodules or cysts) on my left cheek. I had clear skin except for the PIH for a week. It's not like I stopped the medication. I don't understand what's happening. I thought things would only get better from here. I'm not sure how long it's going to take for this breakout to go away. I don't want to wait another month just to get back to where I was yesterday. It's not fair and I am so angry!

I don't know how anyone can learn to live with acne. I've been struggling with this for over a year now and it has completely ruined me. I'll never be able to accept it about myself. I'm balling my eyes out and I'm so sad. I don't want to live a single day like this anymore. I don't understand! I'm on birth control to balance out my hormones. I have been using the topical creams every day and every night. What more can I do? I can't go on Accutane.
