  1. Being a virgin is nothing to be ashamed of. I was a virgin until I was 18. It's honestly not even a sliver of the deal everyone makes it out to be. I didn't feel any different; it didn't change me at all. I know you are feeling badly about this, but you are not weird, and it's a lot more common to be a virgin at 19 than you think! Any girl who would care you are a virgin is honestly not a very good person, and she is not worthy of being with you. I know no matter how old a man was, it would not
  2. I'm glad to hear that veganism is working out so well for your acne! Would you mind sharing what you eat on a typical day? I also like the nutritional yeast idea! I'm actually surprised I'm disciplined enough to do this. A year ago I was feeling sorry for myself because I couldn't eat like everyone else, but now as I see improvements it becomes easier. I still have clogged pores and a bit of oily skin, and I'm willing to manipulate my diet as much as possible to see if I can get rid of those th
  3. Go for it! Seriously! After being vegan for 3 or so months (I've been vegan for over a year now), I never had acne again. This after taking Accutane, and then Spironolactone! I don't take any meds anymore; I just use retin-a for my pores, which look a million times better now. I think most arguments against veganism are plain silly. I don't have to eat all day, I eat as often and as fast as my family, and they eat meat and dairy and eggs. I eat 2000+ calories a day. My labs are perfect. My weig
  4. I've read some studies done on acne and suicide. People with acne are more prone to depression, bdd, and suicidal ideation (surprise surprise). I'm not sure about the rate of suicides/ attempted suicides in acne sufferers, but I wouldn't be surprised if the rates were relatively high. Wow, I just started reading through the replies on this thread. A lot of insensitivity. There's always more to the story than what appears when someone takes their life. No one just decides to kill themselves fo
  5. Oh my gosh darlin', you are so beautiful I could cry! And guess what? You don't have bad skin! You are like me- we feel badly about the smallest little marks on our skin! I know this is probably no consolation- but I know how this feels. I've felt it for years- sometimes I still do. I did absolute horrible things to myself because I felt so horrible about myself. I'm so sorry you are going through this. About the guy- I truly, honestly believe because you feel so down on yourself you are reading
  6. I have a consultation at a med spa to discuss treatment options for my skin. I have some red marks and slightly indented scars on my chin and an ice pick scar between my right cheek and jawline. But mostly I want to treat the large pores on my cheeks, nose, forehead, around my nose, and above my lip. I initially set up the appointment to discuss the restore, but I'm wondering if the repair would be better as it is more aggressive? Any advice/ experience? I might post some pics.
  7. Wow, your skin looks amazing! That is such a dramatic difference. I wish retin-a made my skin look good like that.
  8. I took 100 mgs and was fine. It wasn't until I got up to 150 that it started messing with my blood pressure.
  9. Oh Savy - I'm so sorry to hear of the rough time you're going through right now! You're such a lovely girl and have been a great help to many people here in the past (myself included) so I hate to hear you're feeling this way and really hope you're doing better soon. Hang in there Thank you, that's really nice to hear! You are so supportive. I'm trying to hold on, it's so hard sometimes though. :/ Sorry to hear about your grandma AND your dog. That sux. Your post resonated w/ me. Jus
  10. Rough time right now, and it's definitely showing in my skin. My dog and my grandmother just died weeks apart, I had a cutting relapse (after being "clean" for around 9 months), I'm back in therapy for depression, I was diagnosed with BDD and I'm being "treated" for what my doctors and therapists think is an eating disorder, so now I feel like a fat bloated pig. I've been eating bad, breaking out, and the size of my pores is making me crazy. You know it's bad when you're laying in bed awake at o
  11. I don't think I can add anything else to what people have already said except that I agree with them. I think your skin really does look great!! And that's not going easy on you or just being nice or anything. That's honestly what I see. Maybe that can ease your anxiety a little? Through this post you've physically brought peoples attention to your skin, and we all think your skin looks great! Compare that to 'real life' situations where people aren't necessarily focused on your skin - they'
  12. Thank you! I will definitely look into that. It's always good to know your stuff when talking to doctors... Thank you... Luckily i also have really supportive/invasive parents that are pushing me to get help. I know its annoying right now, but hopefully all their pushing will help me in the long run. I am definitely sticking to my medication regimen because this anxiety will be the death of me otherwise. It's always such a tricky game finding the right meds and I hope I'll find the right cock
  13. I had a really high dosage for my weight at 80 mgs a day. I really don't think I needed it to be that high. I think it's smart that you are going a low dose, especially if oily skin is your main concern. Accutane works wonders for that. I know how exhausting and self conscious and gross you feel when your skin is super oily; not fun. And with lower doses there is less risk of severe side effects. I really hope it works for you!
  14. First off, kudos to you for getting treatment. A lot of people with BDD don't ask for help due to shame, anxiety, etc. I have to completely agree with your psychiatrist. You said you are taking Seroquel instead of Lithium, which only has a 2% chance of causing acne, right? So that means there is a 98% chance that you won't develop any acne while taking it. Those are some pretty good odds. Just keep on taking your meds, and hopefully your anxiety will decrease so that you can make all of your the
  15. I did take accutane, and it's been almost a year since I've been off it. Honestly, I don't regret it one bit. I can't even imagine how I would be now had I not taken it. Clearing up my skin, and what was an even bigger issue for me, getting rid of my extreme oliness, relieved me of so much stress. My self esteem was so much higher and I just felt better physically and emotionally. The only downer for me was I set myslef up to think I would have perfect skin by the end of the treatment, and boy w
