Day 131



It's been about two week now and the nodule on my chin is finally diminishing. There is still a red mark but it's easy to cover up with just a dab of concealer. Despite all my attempts to rid the clogged pores on my left cheek, they are still there. I don't want to poke and prod at them and get them inflamed because right now they aren't visible unless you stretch out the skin. I have a few dormant bumps on my right cheek as well but you can only feel them when you slowly touch the area. I'm not sure what to do about it except wait it out. Medication doesn't seem to help. I still have some hyperpigmentation but it's slowly getting lighter. I wish I could afford to get a facial because my pores are huge :( but I recall that you aren't supposed to get facials when you are on acne medication.

I just want to say, you are incredibly beautiful. There's no reason you should be upset about your looks. Not only because you are good looking, regardless of your skin, but because no matter how hard you try, your stuck with what you got.

I've spent so much of my time thinking why me, hiding my face from people, hoping and praying for a solution, and i've finally found one. It's simple, fuck it, yeah you read that right, fuck it.

There's absolutely no point in worrying about something you can't change, it's like getting mad cause the color blue looks strangely similar to the color purple. See what i'm saying? It's ridiculous to worry about it cause your skin is the way your skin is just like the way blue is blue and that's the way it is.

So smile, your gorgeous. You only get once shot at life, don't let it go to waste.

I just came across your blog and I really think we are almost the same person. It was unreal how much of what you have written was something that I've felt or could have written myself. I have struggled with acne since middle school and am now 20 years old and still struggling. Acne sure has done a number on my confidence, I feel ya girl. You actually inspired me to start my own blog about it so be on the look out for that! :P
