In Reply to: losing my hope... posted by olin on November 14, 2000 at 05:10:46:
I know how you feel, I'm 33 and still battling, this has been going on for years. I'm on spiro which is somewhat similar to Diane - its helping, but I'm still not where I want to be. Accutane helped me quite a bit, I was perfectly clear at the end of the treatment - depending on your situation it may completely stop the problem, or at least lessen it - I realize it will never 100% solve my problem, but I'm willing to do it again in the future if necessary. Its something to think about. I hope things work out for you.
: I really don't know what to do..and nothing is working..I've been on Diane 35 for 4 months..everything is just getting worse.I am losing my hope..All the women in my family have acne.My mom is 46 years old and still getting pimples.I guess i will never get rid of this disease.No matter what i do.I've been on everything except Accutane.I consider taking Accutane and i will visit my derm on Friday and ask for Accutane.
: The hardest part is dealing with the rude comments of the other people.I don't know how to live like that..I get mad but i cannot say anything.I feel so hopeless..Well..just venting..(i really needed that..Thanks for reading)
