Feeling pretty low
May 24, 2008
Ive been suffering from servere acne for about 5 years now and i have tried everything.
I have huge lumps on my chest, back, arms, face and lower back.
I have been on every kind of antibiotics from my doctor and tried many creams which seem to have no affect.
I feel like im going to suffer from them forever and i hate this time of year as all my friends want me to go swimming and i just cant bear the idea of me in any type of swimming costume. I have to wear long sleeved t-shirts in summer and jackets and its all taking its tole.
Im starting to feel extremly depressed and feel i have no-one to talk to that understands how i feel.

Is there anyone else out there that needs to talk that has the same problem?

I know acne is a difficult thing to deal with. I suffered for 12 years (until 4 years ago) when my derm offered me accutane. The point I was at in my life, the benefits far outweighed whatever risks were associated. It was pretty much my last resort and I felt at age 25 it was time to do something about it. Best decision....the huge painful bumps on my face slowly started to go away and new ones were not developing. After 6 months when I was done I was so afraid that everything would come back and I am happy to say that my skin has been perfect ever since.

When you don't have anyone to talk to about it, I know it makes you feel alone. People who don't have this problem cannot possibly understand. But things can and do get better. :)
