I am a 20 year old girl how have suffered from acne since the age of 12.I always knew that something was seriously wrong with my skin and that it would only get worse and worse.Well, here I am 8 years later and oh boy was I right!!
I have cystetic acne and scarring.Lately I have noticed that my pores are getting lagerer and the spots are attacking my forehead (this have never been a problem area - my cheeks and jawline are the battlefields)Well, I have tried everything (creams from the derm, antibiotics, birth-control, dermalogica, mdformulations, diets) without any results ( No I am fed up and want to kick acne-butt!!!One year ago I had a derm-appointment and he offered my accutane.I didnt want it because of the sideeffects, but now I see that I really dont have a choice.Acne has controlled my life for to long and I want to get rid of it before my whole youth has gone to waste.
I am constantly worring about my skin and how I look.I dont go out drinking and having fun because I feel like a freak.Noone has seen me without makeup the last two years and walking outside is exhausting because of my constant worrying.
Next week I have a derm-appointment and will beg him for accutane!I understand that there will be a blood and pregnancytest.Does anyone know how long it will take to get the results?Its gotten so bad that I cant sleep at night (plus I think that the birthcontrol-pills are making me depressed)Have anyone experienced that on Diane?
