Will It Ever Go Away?

Hi everyone, I'm here as you all are as a acne suffer. I am now 30 years old and have suffered since I was 12. I've been on a list of meds believe me, at the age of around 24 I lost all confidence in professionals and lived with it, saved me going through all the side affects with no improvement of my skin, sudocrem was my friend for many years, no it didn't cure my acne but scarring has been reduced, well that's my belief but years of using it has no good to good pores and I've decided to stop using it.

Hitting 30 is a massive deal, I've read endless amounts of blogs that state the truth, acne just isn't going away and we/ I need to deal with it.

The last 3 months I've been on a journey and yet still do not take the accutane medication Yet. I've had to make a doctors appt to refer me to a derm, which was no problem my doctor looked at my medical history and saw no point trying 'another' topical med. also to add I came off all medicine for a year.... After months of waiting for a derm appt I left feeling very deflated, yes she agreed for me to go on accutane but to get the prescription was not instant, I then had to make two nurse appts one for blood count and the other to put me back on the pill which the nurse gave me yasim, which I hate! I'm in my 3rd week and my skin is as worse as ever and I'm feeling very low.I can't even look at myself! On a positive I have my second derm appt next week.... Fingers crossed my actual journey can begin. I've heard good and bad all I can do is hope, would love to share my journey with you, as you have with me.
