  1. I'm feeling rather awful about mine. It is funny too, because i'm actually having one of my "good" periods where I don't have much new development. My face is still an utter mess though, racked with scars and hyper-pigmentation.
  2. I was going to say, "if I ever get clear", instead I will say "when I get clear". I'm trying to be more of an optimist. (Frame of mind is important!) So, WHEN I get clear, the first thing I do will be to smile the widest damned smile in the history of mankind. After that, well... the world will be my oyster.
  3. Decided to add some AHA into an order I just placed. I'm very interested in seeing how well it works.
  4. Wow, quite the miraculous turnaround. Your results further cement my recent thoughts about the correlation between my acne and my diet. I've come to believe that my acne is either a direct byproduct of my diet, or at least intensified by it. Thank you so much for sharing.
  5. Like the majority that voted, i'm in the 21-30 range (24 to be exact).
  6. I really want to try Accutane, by the side effects/complications terrify me. Perhaps someday as a last resort, but i'd like to try a lot of other things first.
  7. I've decided to give fish oil a try. I'm not expecting a miracle or anything, but hopefully it will be one more piece of the acne puzzle.
  8. I'm 24 as well (i'll 25 later this year, which I find all too terrifying). I've dealt with this acne issue for what seems an eternity. I've tried all kinds of things over the years, but I wonder if i've ever given them enough time to work. I've been using Dan's regimen on and off for years, and i've experienced some success with it but it never seems to get me 100% clear. Accutane will probably be the next step, but i'm awfully hesitant as I have heard quite a few horror stories.
  9. Definitely not. Acne has served only to frustrate, depress and shatter my confidence. Of course, there is always the possibility that someday when I am past this, I will reflect on this "journey" and find some good in it. Probably not, though.
  10. About 10 years, starting when I was about 14. It wasn't too bad in the first few years, but it got really bad once I got to college. To this day I am still plagued by it, but it has gotten somewhat better. Sadly, i've got a lot of scarring/hyperpigmentation too. It'd be nice if the acne would just stop, so that way i could really concentrate on the scars and red marks, but it doesn't seem like that will ever happen.
  11. I'm not quite sure I have anyone that does really. I don't have any friends with the same predicament, so it'd be hard for any of them to empathize. Plus, I don't really like talking to anyone about it - though I probably should. Keeping all of these emotions bottled-up all the time probably isn't too healthy.
  12. dude that's awesome. I'm like the most chill dude in the world, I don't get angry at anything, but if some bitch said that to me, I would have flipped too.
  13. I'm going to begin incorporating the toner into my regime this week. I'll let you guys know how its going.
  14. I also started this week, it was my new year's resolution.
  15. I turned 20 last month and I am still a virgin. The opportunity never really arose. I wasn't exactly a socialite during high school and though I am a bit more so nowadays my very pale skin coupled with my mild-moderate acne is a total confidence killer with the ladies.
