Wed Oct 19, 05

I have been taking Bactrim for the past week, one pill every 12 hours.

In the morning:

1. wash with Chlorhexidine gluconate

2. apply Dan's BP gel (which I find very good)

3. Neutrogena spf 15 moisturiser

In the evening before sleep

1. wash with Chlorhexidine gluconate

2. apply stievamycin

During the past month I've been laying low in social settings. I've been using my down time to read and improve myself. It's been difficult as my confidence disappeared. But over the weekend it appeared again.

I got a hair cut, dressed up and went to downtown with some buddies. And something happened. I interacted with others as though I never had acne at all. Then I noticed that others enjoyed me as though I never had acne either... a conversation here, a laugh there and I ended up flirting and making out with a blonde lawyer babe!! I won't get into the details except that she was much older than me... I seem to have a knack for older women.

Later on my way home I saw two girls crossing the street laughing, sharing stories. I looked at them directly in the eyes and felt the light hearted atmosphere they carried. I sense their energy, glowing with excitement, infectious enthusiasm -- it made me feel alive. I smiled at them. To that, one of them responded, "You're hot!"

These events made me realise that I've been letting Acne effect me more than it should. We who have it severe are hard on ourselves. There is hope, and hope is a good thing. And no good thing ever dies.

On a side note, I got a message:

Hi Kone


This Ebay seller in the UK is using your photo from the gallery to sell his product. Do you have anything to do with it?

Only he stole someone eles ID from the gallery (a man called matt) who had nothing to do with it. It was only when he was browsing eBay he recognised himself! There is link about it on acne.org

When I went and had a look, I noticed the seller had changed the photo as Matt complained. So I went to the gallery to match it and it was yours!


Here is the link to the forum.


Much thanks for the heads up
