  1. Whoa, what a coincidence! My religion teacher just played that for my Sacraments class about a month ago.
  2. Zitro, although I don't know you I certainly feel for you. I've seen how great your skin has been looking and to start falling back into the past must be tough. Hope you get through it!

    You can just barely notice it... It doesn't look bad at all.
  4. Just curious, how do you manage to keep it on overnight? Does it harden? Otherwise I can see a huge mess on one's pillow when they awake.
  5. Funny you should mention that. Back in 8th grade, most of my acne was on my forehead. A lot of acne, too. I had short hair, and so none of my forehead was covered by hair. I used Differin, Retina Micro, Benzyclin - everything, and it presisted, even got worse at some points. I stressed majorly about this. At the same time, I was growing my hair out and some of the hair began to cover my forehead. Eventually it was completely covering it. I stopped putting any creams on it because the hai
  6. I highly doubt they'd give out a drug that would forbid you from having surgery. What if your appendix burst? Would they just wait for you to die from the spreading infection because you're taking accutane? Heh, not likely.
  7. Nope, I wouldn't. But he doesn't exist, so it's not a problem.
  8. I remember 7th grade as being the worst. At that time I was just beginning to get moderate acne. I had very mild acne in 5th and 6th grade. I don't think one person has ever said anything to me about my acne in high school - it's been a pretty smooth ride as far as bullying and name calling go. I guess people grow up.
  9. I never wanted a "normal" life. I don't want kids and I don't want to be married.
  10. I wouldn't have such horribly low self-esteem, and I probably wouldn't be nearly as depressed as I am now.
  11. I've had an obsessive compulsive personality since I was 5th grade. Around that time I was obsessed with diseases and dying. I would make a big list of every disease I knew, and every day (probably 10 times a day) I would approach my mom and ask her if she was sure I could never get those diseases. Nowadays I mostly have irrational fears focused mainly around fear of death, but not limited to disease and cancer. Although my psychologist calls it "generalized anxiety disorder". I also suffer
  12. I usually tend to avoid all mirrors. However, when I'm in the privacy of my own home I can easily spend 5 minutes in front of one.
  13. 1. What is your current age/grade? 18, 12th grade 2. What kind of student are you? Underachiever, I'm pretty lazy. 3. What is your fav. class? English or AP Computer Science. 4. Which subject do you hate? Algebra II 5. Which is your best subject? AP Computer Science 6. What after school activities are you involved in? Newspaper, Ed. in Chief. 7. What is your biggest accomplishment so far? Can't think of anything special. 8. What classes are you currently enrolled in now? Currently in sev
  14. I heard you shouldn't drink while on accutane. I can't confirm this, but I've read of somebody who drank two beers while on accutane and winding up having to get his stomach pumped at the hospital.
  15. Age: 18 Sex: Male School/College: Senior in high school Acne status: I'm not sure how to classify my acne. I'd say moderate with a fair amount of red marks. Favorite thing about yourself: I like my hair, and my height (I'm 6'1"). What would you change about yourself (other than acne): I have extremely low self-esteem (most likely due to acne), I'd like to change that. Favorite movie: Hmm, that's a tough one. Easy Rider (1969), The Princess Bride (1987), Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1
  16. That's terrible. I feel your pain. People can be so damn tactless sometimes.
  17. Never have. I probably could have one, I have a lot of female friends, but my insecurities far outweigh the need for a relationship.
  18. The character names Franny and Zooey must come from J.D. Salinger's book "Franny & Zooey". One of my favorites, actually.
  19. I don't believe in god. I've tried to - I really have, but I can't seriously commit myself to a religion without having serious doubts.
  20. I'd say three days. Usually the first warning sign comes when I see a red spot that suddenly appeared on my skin that I don't remember seeing earlier. It then takes about a day to form into a bump and by the next day it fully resembles a blemish. Although I'm heard a pimple-to-be starts forming under your skin a couple weeks in advance and doesn't come to the surface immediately.
  21. Seems like it might. Every time the family goes on vacation at the beach my skin clears up almost dramatically - within one week.
  22. I'm pretty sure this is a "No", but I've heard otherwise from a few people. Does the pus/blood/whatever is released from a pimple cause more acne if it is spread? I always thought so when I was younger, but as I got older I realized pus was just dead white blood cells, right? And that shouldn't cause acne.
