I'm currently 21 and have had acne for about 8 years now (1st pimple was 10 years ago). I'm not going to go into the specifics of the impact it's had on my life, but generally, it's ruined my life up until this point. And there is no end in sight.

It's not the most severe acne, but I think I do have the most persistant case of acne of everyone. I've tried everything. I've even been on Accutane 5 times. 5 times! And I'm 21. And I still have acne! My acne used to go away while I was on Accutane then come back a few months later. This used to be the trend; so I would just go on Accutane so I could be somewhat happy for those months. However, during the last 2 courses of Accutane, my acne isn't even going away anymore. Accutane used to give me hope, but now it's not even working anymore. So, I have no faith that my acne is going to clear up anytime soon; if anything it's probably going to get worse. My brother (2 courses of Accutane) is 25 and still has acne, so I have no hope that I'm going to grow out of it soon. I'm not really a suicidal person, but after some thought.. I really am considering it. I can't take it anymore, and having it for 4+ more years is too much suffering to take...
