To everyone on this board,

Acne is a blow to the self esteem. It takes time for things to get better.

It may hold you back in your social life BUT don't let it hold you back from inner growth.

I know it's painful looking in the mirror. You become quiet and shy. It’s ok… these occurances are bound to happen.

Take your down time and do your hobbies. Learn a skill, study computers, dance, read, dream and DREAM BIG. These things will pass and when they do, it’s your time to shine. There's a wonderful world out there, keep your head up.

Esp to those posting in the gallery. It's such a brave thing to do. I admire all of you who post showing the rawest of the raw. It takes a lot to show the world what acne looks like.

I wish all of you the best. We are all in this together, we all hurt. These things only make us stronger. I believe this fully.

Take care over the holidays.

And stay away from those chocolates!

    Kone, hey we have the same kind of acne. I am into my fourth month on accutane and I am having breakouts on my chin that look just like your pic. It almost seems to me to be like poison ivy. It itches and spreads, going to see doc tomarrow. i am so embarrassed. Thanks for your truth. I am questioning accutane but have come this far!
