Recommended Posts

Feeling depressed and anxiety coming back. It's about 3 months since I finished my tane course and today i counted 7 fresh pimples on my face. :(

^^

Does that mean you'll go back to 'tane? Did it get clear on your first 'tane?

As for me, today i walked into the store to get some stuff feeling so shity even though there's less than 10 people in there. They were looking at me like i didn't belong in the same place like them.

Popped a few "kinda ready to blow" ones. Now it doesn't hurt anymore :D (for now)

I am pretty clear at the moment but super paranoid about breaking out again. :wall:

I worry about every little itch and tingle on my face. I'm pretty sure I even imagine the itching sometimes. Why can't I just enjoy it? I need to get a grip!!!

^^Same! I was clearing up last week and now I feel a few new ones, my face is itching. So I know I'm gonna start breaking out again...oh well.

I was feeling pretty good about my acne this morning for awhile, until my grandpa sees the package I ordered and asks "what's that for?" I reply "for my acne". He then just frankly says " oh yeah you got that shit all over your face". What he saw wasn't acne though it was the red marks left over <_<. Love the older generation and how openly they express themselves.

WOW, I see I'm not the only one who missed school because of acne...=/ Apart from have a big red crusty scar on my left cheek, my skin is not too bad I guess....The Potato treatment, as weird as it sounds, seems to be working to ligthen my older scars! :D . Now I just have to stop picking at my pores and zits...I'm making my skin so RED. :(

I've been walking around for the past 3 weeks looking like a damn scarecrow because i'm too ashamed to go get a haircut due to a godawful breakout on my neck.

So now i look spotty and scruffy. Lovely.

What must the people i work with think of me?.

Well this morning I was feeling positive.

but now, like 12 hours later, I just want to cry

I swear my skin is bi-polar.

Changes completely in one instant to the next.

Exactly how mine is, just an endless roller coaster ride. :wall:

Mine too. Once one pimple goes down, another pops up. It's like they're taking shifts or something. :lol:

Well I get very little spots anymore...

But those damn stubborn marks...

I'll look in my bathroom mirror and feel ok about the way I look.... then I go past certain other mirrors that just chop my confidence down through out the day. :cry:

Pretty disheartened. This old red mark from a cyst is a little raised today and I'm terrified it's coming back. Have also had this weird rash on my neck for a week or so, and now my chest is rashy and blotchy as well. wtf? Could everything just be calm for a week so I can concentrate on uni please? :wall:

Pretty crap at the moment, I go through weeks of ups and downs, 2 weeks or so where Im absolutely clear of spots because of the diet I am on, and then I'll get complacent and think, well my skin is doing so well it wont hurt to cheat a little, I end up cheating a lot (due to how utterly boring my clean diet can get) and then I break out for the next 2 weeks or so.

Its bad but I keep getting into the same pattern of losing my discipline and then binging on a chinese takeaway or something similar, I always pay for it aswell but I never learn. I consider myself to have fairly good discipline aswell, I guess when I am clear for prolonged periods of time I stupidly think my skin is invincible.

Feeling a bit crap! Noticed a red mark on my face earlier today, but just assumed it was part of the general redness I get on my cheeks. Felt it about 10 minutes ago and found out it's a spot.

This has been an absolutely relentless breakout without any sign of mercy. I'm approaching the 4 week mark, and i've been getting at least two new spots a day. Big ones, too. I've one on my neck that looks like an eyeball.

This all came about after i'd been clear for about 2 months - and i've changed absolutely nothing that could have caused it.

It's hard not to feel like you're being punished for something, huh? This is just a miserable existence at the moment.

Why does my face look so much better after just washing it, i.e when it's still wet? :S

Ugh, awful week, have a huge cist forming on my left cheek...maybe 2 smaller ones just really close, they HURT! They are just pink right now, not red, but I still hate them. Have 2 really red things on the right side of my face, they look irritated, but I didn't touch them! My forehead is a mess of bumps and red marks, small ones on chin are starting to go away. Face is really oily, despite dabbings.....sooooooo frustrated, don't want to wait the 24 days or whatever it is for my blood test, I want to go on accutane now.

I have this one huge painful pimple, it would be so bad if I hadn't insisted on popping it. So now I'm sitting on the computer with egg whites, turmeric, lemon juice, and vitamin c on my face. Other than that my skin looks pretty good. My self confidence is also improving. : )

Broken out. Just realised I've been using my current regimen for 3 months and that my breakoiuts have not lessened. When my skin is free of the four five pimples it looks great and i'm super happy....but its been rare. 3 months...my skin could have beeeen so much further along than it is now if i would have been on the dkr which is a fraction of the cost i'm paying now! The biggest bummer is that our friends we havent seen in 2 years are coming out in 11 days for our vacation and i look like a breakout queen. ALl this time hoping that by 33333333 friggin months that i would have significantly less breakouts. Now I'm debating starting the dkr now....or waiting. I don't know what to do. It almost seems like what would i have to lose i'm already broken out alreadty so what would it matter but i'm nervous. What would you guys do...wait or go for it? Remember i am seeing them and vacationing in 11 days............

hmmmmmmmmmmmm
