It's Saturday nite and I'm at home because of my acne

Recommended Posts

I was supposed to go out w/ someone tonight but I developed a HUUUGE cyst on my nose. I took a very high dose of e-mycin and sulfur lotion and topical steroid and NSAID gel... to no avail. So I called her and made up some dumb excuse why I was not able to go out. I think the cyst is from the accutane IB.

Even after 15+ years, I'm still in acne prison. What excuse do you guys use when you have to suddenly cancel a social event due to acne? let's hear your creative ones

:naughty: This is incorrect. You'll figure this out for yourself soon ;)

I usually just avoided all forms of communication for that night and a day or two after. If they asked I just said I got super sick.

Say you took a gravol and now feel woosy.

I haven't had to make any excuses in years.... I wonder if it has to do with not having any cysts after about the 3rd month of accutane, hehehe :dance:

People started getting stuck into me about cancelling plans last minute and not going out etc. In the end I couldn't be bothered making up lame excuses, so I told the that I'm on Roaccutane, am tired all the time, emotional, feel absolutely hideous, and just cbf socialising for the most part. They took it pretty well, and stopped hassling me. :) I promised that I'd make it up to them when my skins is flawless. (I hope they're not holding their breath ;) )

I know what you mean. My family and friends are going camping on Friday up North. I told them I can't go because I have a whole bunch of Freelance projects coming up and I need the weekend. I didn't lie about the freelance, but it could of waited.

Just frustrated right abut my acne and I think I'm on IB stage of my regime. O_O

I've disconnected myself with friends and I don't really hang out with them anymore. I found that family is the only friend I need right now.

I'm making a promise, as soon as I'm clear, I'm going to be the most social person out there. For now I'm just staying in my room watching youtube videos. :)

Hang in there bud.
