  1. I'm the same, I did show my mum this post Oh I so understand, my parents dont give a shit - they dont realise Im using every bit of strength I have to cope with this and so basically have no power to cope with anything else. I mean I didnt used to let it get me down, I did school, I did Uni but like I still have it and it's like Ive done my time now, I spose they want me to move out & get a job but I cant face the world like this. But when I get upset, they just punish me for it. It's
  2. I feel the exact same way. Being a freshman in high school a lot of the other girls haven't broken out yet which leads me to feel well un-pretty. Recently my skin has gotten better but the moment I start to break out my life falls apart. I feel like I stress out my family and friends. I also have a very low self-esteem because of acne and constantly hate myself. I think what gets me through is the fact that my friends don't care. I may notice every little thing about my skin but they don't and i
  3. I once had acne, basically my whole life. And for the past couple weeks I've been completely clear (thanks accutane). I was on accutane for 5months, but anyway lets not talk about that haha. How has going through acne changed me? From having acne and feeling hopeless, no motivation, no energy. To having clear skin and feeling alive again, motivated, and energetic. It wasn't easy and at many times i wanted to give up and end my life, but I'm here to say I've made it and you can too. I just wan
  4. Reading back on this i laugh, cuz i've made it. I never thought i could. Those sleepless nights, pretending all day - i was at rock bottom. Im here to say I've made it :) I'm finally happy and satisfied. yay
  5. lmao dont tell him to grow up, obviously people have it much worse, but just because his skin isnt as bad doesnt mean it doesnt affect him just as bad. i think his skin is really good basically perfect but i have no idea how he feels about it, so im not gonna write a rude comment telling him to "grow up and get out", your acting extremely judge-mental. how about you support him orrrr go f*ck yourself weedman. oops lmaoooo hahaha
  6. I'm the same, I did show my mum this post aw what did she say, did she understand? i didnt show my mom i will when im ready. its kinda cool to find people that relate and are just as open with their feelings. "You can't waste time over your skin problems. Life changes, you grow up and grow stronger with time and patience, and you accept that. Yet you still can't stop thinking of how good it once was, afraid you'd never experience it again, afraid you've already lived it and already lost
  7. wow that is EXACTLY how i feel its like you took the words out of my mouth. And i do as well have a therapist and idk might try anti-depressants next week. Im having much better days lately hope it stays like this im jsut living every moment up that i do have a good day.
  8. lmaoooo hahaha i like that "get busy living, or get busy dying" im gonna see the movie i didnt go to school today cuz of my skin.. oops.
  9. 1- from 1-10 how would u rate how bad is your: acne ----- 1 blackheads ---- 0 redmarks ---- 2 redness/discoloration overall ----- 3 scars ----- 0 (rate each one separately plz) 2- how emotional u are? (also rate 1-10) ----- very 10 3- are u bipolar (mood swings from one to total opposite in short time) ----- 10 4- do u get depressed oftenly? ---- all the time 5- are u depressed right now? ---- always am 6- at most of time how bad your depression is? (rateit!) --- 10 7- are u stressed oftenly?
  10. thanks that makes me feel better... just trying to surround myself with positive people.. no stress. i pushed away all of my closest friends this past year so im slowly trying to reconnect with themmm :)
  11. So i have been using no shower cleanser for 2 months now... I only use warm water to wash my fash... I dont use purpose cleanser anymore. I stopped because i felt the purpose cleanser was drying me out and may be making my face more red. Once i stopped i didnt notice much of a difference with the dryness and redness. And i have stopped for about 2 months now. I had a random breakout this month and i figured maybe i should start using the cleanser again. Once i started to use it for a couple days
  12. Mariacne - I feel the same exact way as you do.."i've been acting for so long i dont even know who i am" When i experienced clear skin for about a month i was happy but at the same time i was kinda awkward with friends because i just forgot how to act or behave infront of them it was weird. I feel like i wouldve gotten use to it eventually but i started breaking out again a month later so the cycle began once again. And i also have been looking at pictures of myself when i was younger and scan
  13. You ask what pepole would think to themselves if they saw a guy like you. To be honest i would hardly notice you... i wouldn't take a second look. I would go on about my day. However, if you said something.. anything.. like whats up or have a good day... i would remember you and keep in mind you might be a cool or nice kid. My point is.. if you want to be noticed.. then put yourself out there and push yourself make an effort even in the smallest ways mean a lot to some people.
  14. Thanks --- Today the past two days and today I've been good :) I hope it stays this way. I'm done with being in terrible moods because of my skin. But i know if i break out i'll be back in that terrible mood... i'm trying to not think about possible breaking out in a couple days and cherishhh the moment haha sounds corny but its true... we all need to do this. When ya look good ya feel good
  15. I agree with you Gulia. have you finished the accutane course... how did you do? I'm on month 5. And i agree if i still have depression, paranoia and stuff after the course then ill take the pills. I feel a lot of pressure from family and doctors and therapist to take these anti-depressants.... which makes me not want to take them even more.
  16. i started clearing in month 3 probably around day 90. I had completely clear skin for that month.. then i started breaking out in month 4. My dose was also lowered in month 4 but i was breaking out before it was lowered. Accutane has definently helped a lot and i can see a significant difference from each month. The red skin you have lasted for me through every month until month 4. In month 4 it got sooooo much better its hardly red at all. I recommend using 1 lotion for the entire course, o
  17. I use purpose cleanser. Its the same as cetaphil but i find it cleans much better. Its known to be effective. Although the bottle is annoying as shit i find it to be worth it.
  18. As the other person said, if differin isnt working for you then try and switch to something else. However, just because reviews say that the natural lotion you posted says its non-drying doesnt necessarily mean thats true or necessarily mean the lotion is effective. You shuld really consult a doctor, or even just a friend to see what they use and what works for them and go from there. There is no easy fix, all these lotions take a lot of time from weeks for certain people to a month or two for o
  19. Alcohol doesnt cause acne. But it can slow down the process of your skin healing. For example, im on accutane and doctors have told me that instead of accutane working 100% alcohol seems to reduce it down to 50% or lower. Same for you if you are on any medicine for your skin. if your not then i dont think it should be affecting your skin, but if you find you break out everytime you drink obviously try not to drink so much. But there are no studys that show that alcohol causes break outs.
  20. exercising actually can help skin. at first you may break out but once your skin adjusts to working out and sweating i think you'll be fine. in my case exercising releases stress and overall makes me feel better about myself.. dont quit!
  21. Hey just wondering has anyone gone on anti-depressates while taking accutane? I have really bad anxiety, paranoia, and depression caused by my skin. Acne controls my mood and behavior, simply if my skin looks good i am happy, if my skin doesn't look good I'm upset. Doctors and therapists understand this and have told me to take celexa and abilify. I realize these medicines balance the chemicals in the brian... but can they really help with my problem? I want to know if anyone has experienced t
  22. I dont understand why nobody on this forum helps people with this problem there retarded. I had the same exact problem.. im on month 4 now. The problem for me lasted until this month. There was not anything i could do about the redness i had to tough it out... i thought i had rosacea also at one point but its def not. I recommend you find a good lotion to wear during night and day so your face adjusts to it and after a couple weeks / months the redness will die down. Also in the mornings i wou
  23. although this was said 20 years ago.. i completly agree!! i have broken up with my past two girlfriends because i havent felt comfortable with myself. most recently i met a girl i could see spending the rest of my life with.. im 18 but still. and i ended it told her im not ready for someone like her and need time.
