Here Goes!

Recommended Posts

Hi! I'm Jude and I live in England. I've suffered from acne for 15 years now. I guess we maybe have a different system with doctors and stuff over here. I've had to be treated by my general doctor with stuff like oxytetracycline, dianette and minocycline, until he decided that my acne was bad enough to be reffered to a dermatologist. Even then you have to wait approximately six months for your appointment. (But we do see the dermatologist for free and get our prescriptions for £6. It's all paid for with our taxes) I saw the derm in December and he's given me a prescription for roacutane, but i can't start taking it until I've been taking a contraceptive pill for a month and had a subsequent period. More waiting! The doctors here a very strict about taking roaccutane and the risk of getting pregnent. I had to sign a disclaimer and everything! I don't know if it's the same in the states?

Anyway, here I am praying for my period so i can start taking the medication, when i came accross this site! Wow! The fedback is amazing. How great would it be if this regime worked for me too!? I've tried all the brands and the supposed acne treatments and nothing has worked, but i also know that there's nothing like trial and error in finding what works. And hey, it's worth a try!

I'm thinking of starting tomorrow as soon as I can get to the shops to get supplies, and doing it up until i start the roaccutane and my skin becomes too dry.

I currently have moderate acne but I'm starting to get cysts too which are painful, swollen and very hard to cover with make-up. I'm starting to become very withdrawn and I'm losing interest in socialising with my friends, buying clothes, getting my hair done etc because i feel there's no point when my skin looks so hideous.

I'm really encouraged by all the support and helpful advice you guys have posted on this site. It looks like you've been getting amazing results from this regime and I really hope and pray it works for me too. If it does I'll be doing my best to make sure everyone knows about it!

Take care and keep up the good work. You might have just changed my life! x
