Day 5/6



Just a quick note to say that I managed to leave my face alone yesterday and today, both days quite busy so easy to take my mind off it and and my friend sat with me both nights to wash my face at night, al the redness caused by my picking and scratching skin has gone done and my complexion apart from marks looks better :) Trying to leave the exfoliating, rubbing my face alone to really let it heal, I am also using a lot more moisturiser at night to help aid the healing and after a couple of days obv no change in marks, scars but complexion looking a bit better :) I know ive had one slip up but I feel more stronger every day I leave my face alone, even if I know its going to take a while to get over all the damage I have done but I keep saying to myself at least im not doing any fresh harm. I have felt a slight ease in the anger and the shame of what I have done for so long now when I have a good couple of days of thinking this is what normal people feel like! lots of love :)

I think you need a good regimen to avoid acne flare ups. Do you not have health insurance? If not, see if you can get Medicaid from your state government. Are you in the United States? Good luck sister! Stopping picking is hard to do but I believe you can do it. The question is, "Can you stop breaking out?". Peace.
