  1. Wow, that's a long read. Sorry for a late answer, I'm not VERY active on here any longer :). I've now been off accutane for half a year, so this will probably be my last update unless something unexpected happens. Accutane did get rid of my body acne, but now it's almost as bad as it was pre-tane. Personally it doesn't bother me at all because I live in a god damn cold country and have my shirt off for less than a week a year, but I can see how it would frustrate other people. All I cared abou
  2. DAY 292 - 150 DAYS POST ACCUTANE Nothing new to report. I was lazy and didn't bother washing my sheets for a while. This aggravated my backne, but I don't really give a shit about how I look without a t-shirt. My face is pretty much clean as long as I stay away from milk.
  3. I can't even stand the thought of being in the same room as people this self-concious, self-destructive and with this much hate towards themselves due to imperfections about their appearance.
  4. So.. there are people out there who get shivers by the thought of people using ONE towel after showering? Wow.
  5. Just want to add this. "I would have a girlfriend if it wasn't for acne" is just wrong. Sorry. I bet 90% of guys whoi struggle with acne in their teenage years have that thought, and I bet that most of them get disappointed when they clear up. I also bet that your chances of getting a girlfriend now is just as big as your chances with clear skin. Your problem is your mindset, not your acne.
  6. Re-read pogo's post until it's stuck in your head. I'll also like to add that it helps being more aware in social situations. Stories don't have to be about how you went to New Zealand to skydive, they can be about a weird person on the bus or how you messed up you dinner last night. It's not about what you say, it's about how you say it. Two people can tell the exact same joke and the response will be completely different. Siouxsie's point about body language is also extremely important. It's h
  7. DAY 267 - 125 DAYS POST ACCUTANE Things are under control. I'm not 100% clear, but that doesn't bother me the least. When I drink a lot of milk I get more, when I stay away I get less. Simple. My backne has gotten a bit worse the last month, though.
  8. DAY 239 - 98 DAYS POST ACCUTANE Weird. My skin got worse and worse every day until last week, it was getting really bad. Suddenly, within a couple of days, my cheeks pretty much cleared up. There are of course some actives left, but it's much better than it was only 1-2 weeks ago. My forehead is not doing well, though. Milk has definitely something to do with all of this, which I knew already. The problem is that I love milk, but I'm trying to keep my daily intake to a maximum of 0,5L.
  9. Should probably put things in perspective for some people on here. Your experience is definitely my worst nightmare. I get tears in my eyes only by the thought of it, and I can't really express how sorry I feel for you right now. I really hope things will turn around for her.
  10. DAY 223 - 82 DAYS POST ACCUTANE It's getting worse every day. I don't want to do another round of this, but it seems inevitable right now.
  11. This is what I've been babbling about on this forum for a very long time. Acne will only trigger bad emotions which are rooted in other problems you have, like lack of personality, a social life or success with the opposite sex. Clearing up won't miraculously make you a happy person again, you're still the same person with less red dots on your face. This is why it's so important to not let acne get to you, and work on your "inner self" whether you're acne free or not.
  12. For once, I actually believe that acne is what makes you afraid of social interaction. Accutane will clear you up, but it's possible to overcome your fears before it does so. There's just one way to stop caring about what other people think of you - and that is to convince yourself that it doesn't. Say fuck it. Loud and clear. Brush it off with a smile when you avoid eye contact with someone, it's a mindgame you play with yourself. This sounds stupid, but I know for a fact that it's possible to
  13. DAY 214 - 73 DAYS POST ACCUTANE Not that fun anymore. It's all going to hell right now, I'm waking up with shitloads of actives every day. Probably 20+ right now. Fuck.
