starting a blog as a release of my frustration with acne

Acne log 2 2011 Nov

I started the last blog last night before I fell asleep, today I woke up at about 9 30 . As usual i woke to my face feeling tight and gross, most likely it is because I didn't wash or use moisturizer or my medicine. I was just at my wits end and felt like it wasn't going to help any way. As I peered in to the mirror I noticed my face was still red and swollen with white heads in groups all over my face. I decided to hop in the shower and I don't know if this is the best way to go about it but I wash my face there with cerave wash.(of course recommended by my derm) I hate touching my face just the feel of the bumps do something to my sole. After that I pat dry wit a towel, my favorite part of the whole ordeal just because when I pat I see all the old skin and even goopey whiteheads and also blood. Then I wait for my face to dry and apply my cetaphil moisturizer. I was useibg cerave pm but that fel. t too heavy. Yup that's what I look forward too every morning and night. Tonight I will use my atralin again and hopefully see some I'm provement.

Try not to look at your self sadly it helps.


Acne log 2011 Nov

I have started this blog because I am fed up with acne. I have had acne since I was 16 and im 21 now,tho it has never been this severe. I would post pics but too embarrassed. I just started atralin and minocicline

2 weeks ago. And this medication sucks so far I don't know if its gunna work or keep turning my skin into the mongaloid I see in the mirror. They say I need to wait 4 to 8 weeks before I see improvment I dunno if I can last that long the way its going now.cuz its so bad to night im going to not use it. Everyday I wakeup hopeing to see improvement but when I slowly look up to see I only get more depressed. Tho there's still a voice in my head that says don't worry it'll get better. So I guess there's still some hope. I'm going to keep up with this to tell and maybe if I get confident ill post some pics of my journey back to clear skin. I and you have to belive its achieveable. Right now I could say the score is acne 1 me zero. Hopefully if any body reads this we can help each other through tips advice and even support. Cause right now if your feeling ugly, depressed, alone, frustrated, Angry. Just know your not alone.

If your going through hell, keep going .
