  1. Thanks everyone, for being so responsive and supportive... I knew that if anyone would understand, it woudl be the people on this forum... sometimes I just get sooooo down, it's more than I can stand. It's getting to the point where if thinking about it at all, I'll have to fight back tears e ven while I'm somewhere public, like on a bus. I just need some kind of relief, but I don't know how to get it. People tell me it starts with feeling beautiful, but no matter how hard I try, I just feel
  2. I've been battling acne since I was 11, and each year since it's been wearing on my sanity and self-confidence... Now I'm 20, I've done antibiotics, vitamins, accutane, diets... My face is not as bad as it used to be, but I still get breakouts that aren't pretty and really hurt... I know for a fact now that I'm always going to have to deal with this... BP helps keep it more under control, but I'm n ever going to be clear and free of red spots. But I just can't handle it... So I thought if I co
  3. Uh.. anyway, getting back to the main topic, I'm twenty years old, and I am still a virgin. I would say that is by choice though, because I'm one of those weirdos who want to wait until they get married before having sex. Admittedly, I've never been in a serious relationship before, but I'm not sure how much that has to do with my acne... Maybe it is involved indirectly because I have such low self confidence because of my face. It's slowly getting better though, both my face and my confidenc
  4. "I always wished that I could find Someone as beautiful as you But in the process I forgot that I was special too" I really like that quotation. Thanks for posting this.
  5. I guess I'm on my sixth week or so of the regimen, but I'm not using as much as Dan recommends, because I simply can't use that much without my face flaking off. I thought I was finally seeing some success, because I didn't have any breakouts on my cheeks or anywhere else for quite some time, and all I had to deal with for a time were a couple scars and red marks... however, I got this giant pimple right by my eyebrow, and it's made me quite depressed... I don't see how a pimple that large coul
  6. I guess technically I've been on the bp regimen for almost a month, but I don't think it fully counts because I haven't been following the rules to the letter... I bought some FlaxSeed Oil today and am going to take 1 capsule three times a day. I'm also taking a multivitamin (which includes pantothenic Acid) and Zinc. My face is doing 'alright' but I'm still having troubles getting the breakouts to stop on my left cheek. Only few and very small pimples present on my right cheek and forehea
  7. Well, I'm back on the regimen again (I never really quit, I just used really small amounts for a while) and every part of my face seems to be clearing up nicely except for that one stupid spot on my left cheek... I'm convinced it's getting better, at least, it's less sore... But quite itchy. I'm also currently taking Zinc, a multivitamin, and plan to take flaxseed oil as soon as I can buy some. Between the vitamins and the regimen, my face *should* start becoming more submisive.
  8. harris03, I have this problem as well. My forehead, chin, and right cheek are doing pretty well, but my left cheek is a disaster! I have five medium to large active pimples on just one area of my cheek, and I can't figure out why... I take extra care at night not to let my face smoosh into the pillow too much... but if anything it's just getting worse... If it weren't for the right side of my face, I wouldn't be despairing right now. Did your 'bad side' ever clear up on the bp?
  9. My dad just found this link and doesn't want me to take b5... after reading the report, I'm inclined to agree. http://natural-acne-treatments.com/b5-acne.html After crying for a few hours, I'm back online looking for new treatments. Back to the drawing board, as they say.
  10. ungj85, that is so much how I feel and act about everything that I could have been the one to write that very post... I'm right there with you, it's horrible... It effects your social life so bad, because people think you're not listening when you don't make eye contact, and think its' rude when you turn away from them so they don't see your face.. But I just can't look at anyone in the face like that, its' too hard. I feel your pain.
  11. Yeah, she thinks she's nearing menopause though... That doesn't really make me feel any better though, because I don't want to have acne until I'm old, because by then more than half my life is over... Anyway, I know that for many people they grow out of it earlier than that. I just wish I was one of those people, because I have a loooong way to go before I 'grow out of it' (30+ years)
  12. That makes me mad, and I don't even know you or your dad, lol. I mean, why would your dad stop you? Does he even have a reason? Anyway, if you're paying for everything with your own money, then there isn't a damn thing he can do to stop you. My parent's aren't much help either sometimes... Not because they don't help with meds and stuff, but because they try to make my acne seem like a trivial thing, and God help me if they ever catch me crying because of it, because that's 'weak' and they'r
  13. Me too... I used to be fairly outgoing, and now in public I am very withdrawn... I only truly become 'myself' when I'm with close friends in dim-lighted environment.
