Feeling at the end of my rope

Recommended Posts

My skin is as bad today as it was the first day of spiro and I just can’t.  I’m utterly gutted as I feel that there is no where to turn.  Two years of my life on this and all for naught.  I’m starting to eat better because I know my body needs it.  I see my derm on January 5th so will see what she suggests.  I’m honestly considering accutane as a viable option at this point.

It went ok.  She’s an amazing woman.  She increased my dose of spiro and wants me to incorporate exercise and continue working on my diet.  I have a follow up in 3months.  It’s definitely discouraging but I’m trying my best to see the upside of life.

Sending you a hug.  I have an 18-year-old son going through a rough time with acne and it sucks.  It takes courage to face the world when you just want to hunker down and hide.  Be kind to yourself and know that you can do everything right and sometimes the acne gods are totally unfair.
