So How was everyone's summer?

Well its getting to be that time again..end of summer, begining of school <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/frown.gif">. My summer was horid...the begining was fun because I partied a lot and my face was pretty clear..but the last two months have just sucked. My face has been on a continuing breakout and I have been hiding from my friends all summer! Arg I hate doing it but I feel like i have to? Weird huh. Well Im back off to college in a week and I am really glad because the best thing about it is I dont have much privacy. I find that when I have to much privacy I mess with my skin a lot more and make it worse. When I know I have to go to class..see girls and ehat not I dont tend to mess with my face as much. This summer was bad cause I worked form my dad and didnt have to leave the house area that much. UGH I wanna kick myself for how bad I treated my skin this summer. Well its getting better now. Anyways How was your guy's summer?

Re: So How was everyone's summer?

this has been the worst summer and worst year of my life. i broke out really bad during january and february, used accutane and i am now left with a lot of scars... i want to die, i feel really bad, depressed, im a depressive guy and now im worse than ever. i just wish time passes away and that the microdermabrasions that my derm recommended work. im planning on getting the cooltouch next summer, or maybe the saline inyections.. i dont know, i dont want to mess further with my skin, but sometimes i go crazy.

Re: So How was everyone's summer?

I can pretty much sum up my summer in two words: IT SUCKED!!! The worst summer of my life so far and looking forward to the worst school year of my life. I started getting acne about 5 years ago, but not until this year did I realize how bearable it was. I mean it was like only a couple zits and black heads on my nose. Now I have a ZILLION pimples all around my mouth area and forehead. These things are BIG. On top of it I've gotten extremely oily skin this year too. Oh and how could I forget the chest and back acne. What's next is what I'd like to know? I completely hid myself as much as possible from friends and when I was around them I stay way away from the guys this summer. It stinks. Acne is controlling my life. I thought these high school years were suppose to be the best years of my life not the ones from hell. UGGGH!!!!!!!!
Well, I'll stop venting and end with 3 words: I HATE ACNE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: So How was everyone's summer?

Ok, well yes, my skin broke out horribly, but on the other hand, I had a great summer. I went to the beach, clubs, movies, hung out with friends, pimped out my car(as in ground fx, etc....), lol,went to some theme parks, met my boyfriend, went to bass lake with friends...and now I have to go back to school....DAMN IT!!!!!

I guess I'm an optimist......

Re: So How was everyone's summer?

I had such high expectations for this summmer...road trips with friends, partying, landing a cool internship, etc. and it turned out to be one of the worst in my life. I was experimenting with new meds so I broke out like never before for the first 2 months, and on top of that my cousin stays with us for the entire summer, leeching off of us and rendering me with no privacy whatsoever. The past few weeks have been better since my skin calmed down after stopping the retin-a and I am definitely looking forward to starting my junior year of college! All in all, this is one summer I would like to forget.
