  1. We all go through hard-times in our lives, whether it's acne, relationships, family, job, etc. What are some of YOUR favorite quotes that have helped you through those rough patches in life? Here are mine: "When one door closes, another one opens." "Life's a bitch then you get over it." "You miss 100% of the shots you don't take."
  2. Damn man, I can feel your pain. I wish I could give you accutane right now haha. I really hope you get it soon and feel better about yourself. Goodluck man...
  3. Ah man...that's cruel. What kind of dosage were you on and how long were each of your cycles?
  4. I'm sure she really was being nice since acne was a big deal for you. I wouldn't think too much about it.
  5. Well, I took accutane for six months and cleared up nicely. I still get the occassional blemish here and there but nothing too bad. There's a big chance your red-marks will not fade while you're on but don't get discouraged. Just remember, the important factor is the end result. Stay the course all the way through and you'll see great results. Goodluck!
  6. I bet you won't curse God when you're clear again.
  7. Good job and keep it up. Acne will be dead and done soon.
  8. I give you props man. 12 hours a day can be taxing on your mind and body - I wouldn't be able to do it. I know you're tired all the time but try to exercise as much as possible. Not to insult your intelligence, but it will help your body conserve more energy, making it more efficient. In turn, you may start to feel more energetic during the day.
  9. Hang in there man. Let accutane do it's job.
  10. I already understand acne and have seen a dermatologist. This is why I don't understand why I continue to get more acne. It doesn't add up. I do everything I am supposed to do and it still keeps coming back. That is my issue with it. It doesn't make sense to me. I have conquered many seemingly impossible things in my life. I pulled myself out of poverty by working my way through school, I even ran the Boston marathon. I should be able to conquer this. I understand your pain. Acne can
  11. Please, do not let acne defeat you. I know it's difficult but truthfully, most of it is in your head. Adult onset acne has the potential to destroy a person's confidence, especially if you've been clear all your life. It can be traumatizing because it comes on so fast and severe. Just hang in there and keep fighting because you'll find something that works and everything will be back to the way it was. And of course make sure you've exhausted all of your options before you even consider giving u
  12. Perhaps you should see a dermatologist. I'm sure they can explain acne to you in text-book terms.
  13. You're probably over-irritating your skin which is causing those unexplained breakouts. Just wash with something gentle, like J&J general purpose, once or twice a day. You have to be really gentle.
  14. I'm really sorry to hear this. You ran accutane twice? That's harsh man. I don't really know what to tell you except give tane another go. I've heard some people had to do 4 - 5 accutane cycles before they stayed clear. Just don't ever give up man.
