    There's a world without acne?

  1. I just wanted to say that I'm 33, have had acne since 12 (ruined my adolescence) and only now found out that any form of dairy will cause my acne. Since eliminating all milk products, my skin looks fantastic.
  2. Just curious to see if other Quebecers have made their way to this forum.
  3. Here's a picture of me, taken today at the International women's tennis finals in Montreal. I'm on the right. I just started my third month of Accutane. http://www.fiberpimp.net/~s4m/tennis/100_0683.JPG
  4. I've never had a nosebleed in my life so I can't say I got one myself, but it is reported that a lot of people get nosebleeds as a result of taking Accutane. I have to say that my nose is extremely sensitive now and the slightest touch will hurt (mostly because of the dry snot in my nose).
  5. Well, accutane makes your skin very sensitive. Depending on how your skin was beforehand, you can see the effects faster. Like in my case, the first time I was on it, my skin was exceptionally oily and I don't recall feeling chapped lips until the second week, and the sensitivity to the sun never occurred. This second time around, my skin is not as oily and I had the effects within 2 days. Dry lips, dry nose (watch out for this one, this one sucks), prolonged healing and of course, hurting joint
  6. The worst thing you can do is accept your fate as 'subhuman' and give in to what acne does. The right side of my face has bad acne. Even if I was to get rid of the acne there, there are tons of scars to remind me of when I DID have acne. Despite that, I've had two long relationships. I'm single now and I'm back on accutane and while, just like you, I feel like shit a lot, I know that in time I'll meet someboy nice once more.
  7. For Christ's sake I didn't say ALL PISCES HAVE BAD SKIN, I was saying that a lot of the acne sufferers are Pisces. Geez.
  8. From what I'm reading, you're only reaching month 2. I just went back on Accutane myself and I'm reaching month 2 and I still have acne as well. In fact, I have a few new breakouts since I started. The first time I was on it, I saw a difference after 2 weeks cause I had a lot of acne. Now it's taking longer because I don't have as much. A lot of people say that after 2 months, they only BEGIN to see changes. After 3 it's already pretty sweet and by the 4th month all is well. Just be patient.
  9. I've honestly never met another Pisces person I didn't like. Some of the coolest people in the world are Pisces too. Ric Flair (whoo!), Steve Jobs (creator of Apple Computer) and Drew Barrymore.
  10. Actually, just about everything I read about Pisces, physically, is pretty bad. We're supposed to be frail, pale and weak. Too emotional, sensitive... but artistic and poetic. If art was still a way to make money, we'd all be happy but it's not. We're supposed to make great teachers and lawyers, but when your skin is prone to terrible acne like ours is, being in public like a teacher or a lawyer doesn't seem like a wise career choice. Essentially, we're screwed.
  11. So as I can see, a lot of Pisces ended up having bad skin, just as I had suspected. It really IS weird but it's remarkable how many similar physical traits people have based on their sign. I've noticed, for one, that air signs (Libra, Gemini, Aquarius) usually have very magnetic eyes for instance. Aries girl often end up with light frekles near their nose as they get older and that Cancer girls, more often than not, have weight problems and have generously-sized breasts (never a bad thing). But
  12. Well I remember reading on a site a long time ago, about Pisces, that we're supposed to have skin problems. It doesn't specify what kind though. I found that interesting because a lot of Pisces people I meet have acne, whether mild or terrible, whereas people like Aries don't. To this day I don't think I've honestly ever met an Aries that had ANY acne. Anyways, I believe in astrology either way.
