I look so sad in this picture. I'm really upset with myself for stopping the regimen, apparently my face is too :(

This was a few days after starting the regimen again. I stopped for probably about a month and then my chin started breaking out with extremely painful cystic acne. I've struggled with acne for probably a little over 10 years now. I went to dermatologists but nothing they ever prescribed worked. The acne.org regimen has been the only thing that has worked for my skin, it probably took a good year to get completely clear and get rid of my red spots.

Why did I have to stop?!

i understand you I also have acne on my chin, I've been diagnosed with acne rosacea two days ago, never had something like that, it happened 5 months ago (before i used to have some pimple on my chin and many on my back, but not sensitive/red skin)...i have gut issues and i am trying to fix that.

i know how you feel but I see a really nice girl in this pic and what I notice more, sincerley, is your eyes! I am not trying to say you don't have anything, I know how it feels when you look at the mirror, i barely go out in the morning, but I think "ok, a lot of people fixed it, a lot of people had worst acne and now is clean, I can fix it too..." and rosacea is not so easy, but i am sure we'll have nice skin one day.

huge hugs from italy dear!!

Hey, thanks for commenting! :) Sorry to hear about the rosacea, I've never had that so I really don't know anything about it. Skin issues in general suck, don't they?!

And thank you for the compliment! I think it's really important to try to focus on other non-problem areas, as hard as that can be! I have to force myself to try to see past my acne and so sometimes I feel like that's all other people see too, so your comment really means a lot to me!

But it's so true, a lot of people struggling with skin issues have been able to achieve clear skin, our time will come! :)

What part of Italy, if you don't mind me asking? My parents lived in Sicily for a couple of years. I've never been but I want to some day! (I'm from the United States.)

I am from the south, Naples. But I live in Northern italy for my studies..

Southern italy is wonderful you should come to visit!

Actually i am depressed for my skin, that's true, I don't go out since days, but at the same time i feel that's the good thing to do now, I mean, I want to do what I feel and what i know its the best for me.

I had to go out for 3 months every day cause of my stage and sometimes it was so hard, sometimes it helped........but now I feel that its better to do what I feel that's good for me and not what others say to be good (like "you HAVE TO go out, you CAN'T stay home because it's worst! you are TOO STRESSED, you think TOO MUCH") I mean i know all of this, but i still see myself in the mirror and I don't like it!

in my eperience it's worst to force ourself to do what we don't want to.

Also, I need time to realize what's happening to my body, heal me, cook for me, and not be angry with the world and envy other's life. It's hard, you keep on thinking "why me?", even if you know there's people with more serious illness, isnt it?

I just think we have to chill a bit, even stay alone. I took my bike at night yesterday and went to a park to ride, look at stars, listen to my ipad and think about the wonderful memories I have of my life. there was almost no one in the park, it was nice.

I suggest you to do something like this. Do what makes you comfortable.

Huge hugs !!
