  2. Hi, I'm looking to see if anyone can help me identify what is causing this. I'm 23 years old.

I have been to my d

  5. Hi i just was wondering if i was the only one who felt like this happens to them...

She prescribes something not that strong that never works for me, but the moment i leave the office, my skin goes back to its normal shittiness and she cant see it how it is

Hey, just wanted to know what you guys listen to or watch when you're feeling down or want to cheer up or anything... right now ive been really into Damien Rice and i can relate to the lyrics in a way... His song "Rootless Tree" is one of my favourites right now, and this live version I saw on youtube is really emotional and an amazing performance... also at 3:20 in the song its the most emotional and heartbreaking part for me The song is about a relationship, but I relate it to my acne s
  9. recently ive been getting into this song by Damien Rice called "Rootless Tree"... i know its about a relationship, but i kinda relate it to my acne struggles... its a bit vulgar, but it really illustrates the anger and frustration: Damien Rice - Rootless Tree (Live From Abbey Road) - This live version is amazing, you can see the intensity in his face at 3:20... its like hes given all he can and nothings worked (exactly how i feel with my acne) anwayss herre are the lyrics What i want from y
