Day # 293

Almost 300 days on this journey and i'm still in the same boat as i was then, albeit with a little less heinous acne.  

This medication to be fair has lessened the severity of breakouts at times but it's still as ongoing as ever and i've been having pretty consistent eczema to boot.  I gave the oolong tea ( a tea that is suposed help eczema) a try of 3 months and nada.  

As of today, I am having a breakout of swollen pimples and closed comedones that extend from my right cheek down to my right chin and  on parts of my lips.  Left side is breaking out on my chin but nowhere as bad as the right.

I saw my naturopath last week and we are going to work on getting my diet in line for HEALTH, not ACNE.   It's been pretty horrible for a few weeks now.     The things she wants me to incorporate into my diet are as follows:

green smoothies:

spinach
kale
mixed greens
flax seed
kiwi
berries
beets
carrots
apples

Fish/Meat (organic/grass fed)

chicken
bison
salmon

veggies:

stir fry
mixed greens
beans (from scratch)

Grains

quinoa
oats
brown rice

Not rocket science at all but i just have to form a habit of eating like this consistently.  Not expecting much.  I've pretty much given up on getting advice for things that will help me as the more people suggest, the more frustrated and aggravated i get.  It stresses me out.

My birthday is on Friday and i'm disappointed that i will be celebrating yet another birthday....nothing more to say on the issue.  Gonna keep putting one foot infront of the other, just like i always do.

Tell me about it, it's like a never ending war ,  doing all these things to try to  get rid of acne but people say wait a few months to see if something works but dame that is not easy when your wasting time on life worrying about it. But I guess I'll be die trying to get rid of it. But I'm going to stay positive n keep up with this battle, so just hang on in there low.
