I've already given up on my diet for the most part. Someone mentioned fruit punch and I lost it. However, I'm still drinking a lot more water, avoiding dairy, and consuming a lot less sugar. Martin, Jon, and I went to Buffalo Wild Wings last night and I had a soda and an extra saucy pulled pork...so that wasn't very good at all. My cheeks are slowly healing and nothing new has appeared on them in a few days. I still don't understand why my cheeks started breaking out all of the sudden. I went from having acne on my chin, forehead, and t-zone to having it mostly clear up on my forehead and my cheeks becoming acne-chaos at 20 years old. I don't understand it. It's a bigger shot to my confidence than it ever has been before. I guess it's because I think about cheeks as squishy, cute little things and I've always liked my cheekbones....and now my cheeks look sullen with the grey dullness of acne scarring.
I'm just hoping this whole thing is temporary and my cheeks recover. I try so hard to be hygienic. Over the last year or so I've self-imposed OCD behavior. I wash my hands 20+ times a day and won't go as far as to scratch an itch on my face. I wash my pillowcases constantly and won't touch my face with fabric that I know hasn't been cleaned very, very recently. I don't know what I'm doing wrong.
I can't go to a doctor to have my hormones checked. When I could afford a doctor about 4 years ago, I went to a clinic and they gave me some shitty cream for rosacea.
Anyway, I'll try and keep this updated and keep trying to eat more healthy foods.
