At my breaking point....

Recommended Posts

My face is COVERED in red marks from left over acne that has sprung up over the past few weeks...

I did a round of Accutane in 2003 and it cleared me up only for about 3 months... since then Ive been on birth control b/c my doctor suspected it was hormonal -- it kept my acne mild until recently...

My mother and grandmother have hypothyroidism - and I am presenting a lot of the symptoms - so my doctor had my blood checked during that visit 3.5 weeks ago but I'm hovering on the edge I guess? Not enough to warrant medication so she put me on this 'thyroid support' pill I picked up from a health food store.

I just don't know what to do anymore! What more can I do!? I wouldn't be so discouraged if there were signs of improvement - but just today like 3 zits have popped up...

I JUST DONT UNDERSTAND - why ME?! WHY US? WHY CAN"T I GET A F"ING HANDLE ON THIS?

Sorry. I just had to vent... and sadly, this is just way to embarassing/emotional to even talk to about w/ anyone else.

Be glad the majority of the active acne is gone. That's most of the battle. The red marks will go in time provided you keep your face in a healthy state. Be patient and the results will come.
