Acne....Why is there such a thing? Where did it come from? All I know is that it has destroyed my self-esteem and a large amount of my ambition, something that I once had an abundance of. I can't even bare to look people in the eyes most days. I was totally clear through high school and had NO issue with not wearing make-up. Oh how I miss those days. Now at ae 22yrs. my face looks like a pepperoni pizza. I often dream of being able to wake up, toss on some clothes and head out the door for a early morning jog or trip to the gym. BUT now....In order to leave my house I must wash my face, apply a considerable amount of make-up in order to hide the remnants of disgust that will not wash down the sink a*k*a ACNE. The only explaination I can think of as to why I was punished by acne is because GOD wanted me to understand how it feels to be ugly and embarrassed to test my ability to overcome obstacles. After 4 years of wondering, searching for the remedy to end this curse, and believe me I tried EVERYTHING.....At last, I found myself at a new dermatologist inquiring about a medication called Accutane. Something I have only heard about...but thirsty for more information about it because it may just give me hope. Well, I liked what I heard... I have been on Accutane for approx. 3 weeks. I am experiencing the dreaded "initial breakout" and have serious thoughts of doubt. But everything I read says that it is expected for 6-8 weeks, so I must ride this thing out. Even though it has made my problem worse...what have a got to lose? Come on, Accutane. Have Mercy!
