  1. For me nothing worked except accutane. I suffered acne for about 20 years and I have tried all there was to try. If you do decide to go for accutane you should read though positive and negative accutane experiences on this site to get an idea about this drug:) Your skin does not look too bad:) Best of luck to you!
  2. OK, that is interesting. In the case when I no longer have control to delete my own posts I'd rather delete all of them. SO, how do I go about it? Do I copy all my messages to you and you then delete them? That would be a lot but I'd rather do it.
  3. Your face dose not define who you are. Courage and hope and willingness to fight with this disease are the ones that will mold into what one is at the end:) Even if you go for accutane do keep eating healthy. Keep positive, there is nothing wrong with feeling the way you do. No matter how dark it gets, it will be brighter and sunnier one day. I wish you all the best in 2013!!!
  4. Wish you the best in 2013! Hope you find a solution for yourself. Stay happy!
  5. as long as you know that some of the side effects of accutane can be far from moderate... there is a whole list of side effects that one might have aside from dry skin and lips.... It works though and I am happy I tried it.
  6. Your plan might do more damage than good.
  7. I am not too surprised with the side effect but I thought I would share my plan of tackling it:) Before I begin I must admit that my skin is as good as it never has been and it feels unreal. My oil returned, although not at all as bad as before, 2 weeks after I stopped accutane. At the moment I have to deal with some hair loss(nothing dramatic, had much worse in the past). I have 3 doctors in my family and they advised me to do liver tests and get several things checked. I will be doing a bloo
  8. No, it actually made no difference whatsoever. But I had severe acne so maybe if yours is not that bad it can help:)
  9. As far as I know there are enough acne sufferers in Russia and Central Asia. I have lived most of my life in both regions. Treatments offered are very similar to those, for example, offered in UK. Up until the age of 12 I ate organic home grown food (we had big and proper russian county house 'dacha') with lots of vegetables, fruits and herbs grown by my korean grandmother (it did not stop me from developing acne). Some of my relatives had acne too regardless of good diet. But I did get my type
  10. I was on a low dose but for 7,5 months. My skin cleared more or less after 4 months. I was on 20mg for the most of the course except 2 months on 40 and 1 month on 30. My weight is 65kg. It does work, some people see results at the very end of their course, months 5 or 6.
  11. You have no right to tell anybody that they need more substantial evidence to support the fact that accutane is dangerous and shouldn't be prescribed. All my evidence is from experience. All the others that I have managed to talk to have shared nothing positive about accutane. If you don't agree with this thread then you don't have to post. Please don't troll this thread when it was created out of good intentions to help people. What evidence is that?? I have evidence to prove it was a safe c

  13. I use face wash by "Nude", "gorgeous" face cream by Lush, sometimes, "dermol" wash for face and body, epaderm cream for lips. I use revlon foundation. Good luck with your treatment!
  14. I was vegetarian for 6 years, did not eat dairy and avoided anything with gluten. And even so...my acne was still there and it was bad, so what gives?! The only thing which made a difference was accutane.
  15. I took accutane and it worked great for me. 3 members of my family took accutane in 80s they are still alive, free of acne, have children and none of them suffered scary side effects. After 20 years of fighting acne with topicals, antibiotics, vegetarian diet etc the only thing that made my skin look good was accutane. I guess writing about it just made me sale representative and a liar, hahaha
  16. you have to find a way to make lemon juice with this lemons.....
  17. Hi, when I was taking accutane I had exactly the same on my face and chest area for about a month. They did go away though. I do not know what it was but I thought it might have been a reaction to accutane of some sort (it was nothing like acne I was trying to get rid of taking accutane).
  18. Tell that to Buddha, monks, and enlightened masters, they'll agree . Nah jk, but I have no interest in writing another post to explain what it is. You may find it yourself simply by googling the keywords I've used in my previous posts. It's a very deep concept, getting into emotion and realizing how our mind works. It's not how we are taught to think it is suppose to be. you do not feel or know you googling....that is another way to get conditioned by society, no?! When you can not relate you s
  19. I would call it spirituality. That's the most simplest and meaningful name. I see it as truth, a truth in every existence but again it simply is a label of name. It wouldn't matter, see it and experience it yourself. There is NOT a one name I can easily describe all of this as, I could call it hindiusm? Buddhism? perhaps part of christianity (considering it isn't edited), taoism, and lot more. I do not know one true name, but they all share a very common belief. So I call it the truth, like Bud
  20. Not sure which part you are referring to as metaphysics, string theory, observer effect, and the unified theory are part of quantum mechanics. True that, unified field theory isn't completely established, but it has been reworked by scientists. It still is a theory, an incomplete one, and again all those are theories. We are not capable of doing actual experiments or precisely measure each at the moment. My point wasn't in the copy past of the studies, it's just to give an insight that conscious
  21. Restful awareness would not help clinically depressed nor would meditation!!!! I do both yoga and meditation but it was not these that stopped me from committing suicide. You do not know what depression is maybe....we are not talking here just being sad....
  22. I agree with inndem ask for a second opinion and a very clear reasoning why (if not) you can not take accutane.
  23. Well I was not breast fed and I was never told my brain was smaller than anyone else's and I had less brain power function. I did finish a law school and later an art school with distinctions....hmmm less brain power, I do not think so.....
