Day 1 - September 18, 2017



Hello, i'm a 23 year old male about to take the plunge. After close to ten years dealing with persistent back acne, and plenty of trial and error, I have decided to take the plunge and start Epuris (a canadian version of accutane). I have always been hesitant to try accutane as I had a friend fall into a deep depression upon going on it, not only that, but also the idea of me being able to cure it with natural methods was always something I thought would help me understand my back acne better. This summer was the first time that I actually let it get to me - afraid to take my shirt off, constantly thinking and comparing myself to others - and I always told myself that if my acne ever got to the point that it was preventing me from being myself then I would take more conclusive and preventative measures. So wish me luck on this journey. I'm a little worried about initital breakouts where I don't tend to get cystic or nodular acne, like my face. Like anyone I'm fairly sensitive and vulnerable about my own self-image, and having acne in places where I could just cover with a t-shirt, gave me solace. I'm hoping I can keep it all under control so I'm still able to live my fulfilling lifestyle and not be plagued by sadness or anxiety over this problem. I choose to look at this positively and am never regretful of any of my decisions because I wouldn't be who I was today without every thing that has happened to me. Let's rock!
