I've been having trouble with depression for years now (I think largely due to my skin, but not entirely). I've never looked to get help for it however, and I'm wondering if I should. However, I'm afraid medication might cause me to break out, or I'd be forced to stop taking Yasmin and Spiro (even though I know that isn't the cause), and that would only serve to make me more depressed. I guess I'm just looking for opinions. Thanks.

Re: depression

Hi Aliasjanedoe,

I think you should get help, and you definitely should'nt feel weird about doing so either. Acne really screws with people's lives and there is no shame in saying you need help. Speak to a psychologist/psychiatrist and remember you don't have to take any medication if you don't want to. Use the board to vent - we've all done it somewhere along the line

Re: depression

definitely see a dermatologist or your physician about acne. as for the depression, make sure you eat healthy, get exercise, and get adequate sleep (sleep is of utter importance). I was once clinically depressed and i know it's not a fun time. also try not to worry about your face all the time, dwelling on your acne only makes it worse and will make you feel bad.
