  1. I am in my 50s. Most would not consider the skin condition on my face that severe. However, looking at me you would know I have had a history with acne. But the slightest imperfection I see with my skin (in a photo, mirror ect...), sets me off on an emotion roller coster. I just get so upset! I wonder what I can do about it. I wonder if I can make my skin look great again. I hate the emotional hell I go through.
  2. Short acne story: I started getting it at 9, obviously very early, and it was what would be for a teenager moderate acne, gradually getting worse until about age 12. It was so bad they started me on accutane, despite me not having cystic acne it was bad enough to make the cut. It worked wonders for me, and I went off it two or so months ago. Recently, I've been slowly getting acne back, much like it began, and it's got me terrified. Now I'm in high school and now it truly bothers me, and th
  3. I was being upset this morning cause my skin has been acting up again. I was in my room crying, feeling too ugly to leave the house, then my mom got sad and cried too. (Every time I get sad/upset, she gets irritated and says it's cause she cares about me so her mood follows mine. Don't know if all moms are like this or it's cause she's bipolar.) Then she left the room, and after a few minutes she came back looking pissed, and told me to stop TORTURING her. I've heard many rude comments about
  4. I had severe body acne in my teens and up till my 40s. It was severe! I had it on my face too but not as severe. Antibiotics helped clear that up. As of yesterday I saw how severe the scars are on my back. Now, all of a sudden I realize how severe the deep emotional and physical trauma has affected me and I know I am still not over it. What do I do about the feelings? What do I do about the scars? I don't know if there is much help for the scars on my back, perhaps there is some. I did

    Day 71 - shmooooodd

    I realized that I didn't post nearly as often last round of accutane (lol I just told my computer to add this word to dictionary bc its such a huge part of my vocab that I have to use so often now). I posted maybe 7 times up until day 40 then the day of my last pill. Am I handling this round differently? Different schedule? I think I feel the need to document this round as best as possible just in case I end up taking acc a third facking time and need to remember what side effects are normal, no
  6. I was the only one in my whole school who ever had acne... It was embarrassing. I had trouble looking at people when I talked to them, had a low self-esteem, and always envied the popular kids who were rich and had clear skin. I used to go to church, but seeing that I was the only one that had acne there too, I lost faith. I don't believe in god, if he were real why should we have to suffer this much with flawed skin? Creator of all good? Hm. Then who created acne to bring people to suicidal tho
  7. I like many of you have suffered from acne for a number of years. In fact, at just the tender age of eleven, my high school photos revealed the beginning of my ongoing battle against the disorder. Ten years on, aged 21, I am a young woman whose life has been greatly impacted by the disease; I began treatment for acne aged fifteen and only now have I plucked the courage to begin a course of Accutane (two weeks in) as no other treatment offered lasting improvements. I often wonder who I'd be witho
