Hey girl, I just wanted to check in with you to see how you were doing. I read your post from Aug. about you being upset and all. I used to go through it bad until I finally convinced myself that this was no way to live. I wouldn't feel like eating or doing anything b/c I'd constantly be reminded of how nice everyone else's skin was. I was pregnant in March and having a really hard time w/ the acne .. I miscarried after that. I think it was due to the stress and all. How foolish of me. After I stopped dwelling on it and touching it etc... things got better. They really did. The stressin' does not help. I'd go for walks and exercise, watch TV if you can and read. The important thing we have to remember is that life can be a hell of alot worse. I survived 9/11 (I worked in 2 WTC on the 99th floor) and I swore after that, that I'd never let things bother me the way they did. I use that as sort of an inspiration. There are people out there who have cancer, aids, people in wheel chairs b/c they're paralized etc... we have to be happy for the other things that we have and stop worrying about the acne. It is hard, I know that b/c I deal with it too. Eventually, even if it takes months or years, the acne will go away. I pray everyday and will continue b/c I don't have anything to lose. I stopped all the antibiotics both oral and topical. Right now I am trying to use as little as possible.
