[QUOTE=Iwantniceskin;3848766]Hey Arelias, sorry to hear you have the same problem as me. I feel for you. I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy. It's horrible because you can't help how low and lacking in self esteem as you do but it obviously worries loved ones and friends and you end up feeling like you are a burden to the people who care about you. I had all last week off work. I've been on antibiotics. They are working a bit but not fast enough. Green stuff has been coming out of my cheeks. It makes me feel sick when I squeeze it- I know you shouldn't squeeze but the swelling makes me look like I'm deformed. I've been back in work this week and only one of the kids has said something so far, it hurt but I brushed it off. Have you been referred to a dermatologist? My sister used to have worse skin than me but hers cleared up after going to a dermotologist. I asked the doctor to refer me but I'm moving to another part of London at the end of the month and the doctor said I would need to register with another doctor and get referred from there as it is a different borough. Keep your chin up- please don't let acne ruin your life. There have been times when I have felt suicidal because of how I look (like last night for example) but I had a reality check when I thought about how much it would hurt my family and the kids at school who rely on me for their education. Write down your fears and worries in a journal- sometimes I find that helps when I'm feeling down. I really hope things work out for you and thank you for replying to my post x[/QUOTE]

I totally agree with you. I feel really badly for anyone who has bad acne. I feel like i've been pushing my family away because I can't bear them seeing how ugly my face is and have them make comments that are going to make me even more sad. Yes, i've been to a dermatologist and an acne clinic. I've taken doxycycline and retin a for about a year and it did clear me 100% (face and body), only for that year. My face started getting worse and it seemed as if my body was building immunity against the medication. Then, I tried the acne clinic and in the beginning it was working well and then my face began to get worse and that's when I realized that my acne was hormonal. I'm trying my best to not let my acne get to me and focus on what I need to accomplish. Yes, I've felt suicidal at times myself and even told my close friends that if my acne gotten really bad I'd end my misery. I'm just waiting for my hormones to balance (through YAZ) so I can actually come out of hiding and show my true potential that I am a fun and adventurous person.
