staying in

It's Friday night and I'm staying in even though I had plans to go out. Made an excuse that I have to much homework to do, at least I'll get some work done I guess.

Anyone else staying in cause there skin isn't looking to good tonight?

Re: staying in

Me too guys, I feel your pain. I really wanted to go out tonight too, my friends are going to LA to this cool cafe place where bands play and Im stuck here feeling sorry for myself. Has anyone here tried that fish oil stuff? Im thinking of trying it cause it seems to get some raving reviews! Hopefully this madness of staying home Friday nights will end soon!

Re: staying in

despite my receant "change of outlook on life" I am staying in too. Only because I am going through the worst breakout ever....and I guess I am just to self-conscious...I feel really bad too because one of my freinds(girl) called me up asked me to the movies...she had set up a date for me with another girl...ugh I made up a excuse...wich I am sure she picked up on..sounded nervous. O well I know I can make up for it. HAs not helped that I have had insmonia all days are like dream like and it really sucks....trying to deal with this breakout on no sleep. I am making a vow tonight to stop over picking my skin....because it is my main reason for my breakouts looking so bad. Well good luck to you guys...maybe tommorow night well be better.

Re: staying in

i was debating on whether i should go out and have fun or sit at home like you guys but good thing i chose to go out cuz i had loads of fun. hadn't gone out in awhile due to school and my stupid insecurities about my face. i went to a restaurant tonight and this one stupid beer light was shining right on my face and it was soo bright, i couldn't even eat because i was afraid my friends would look at my face so i even suggested to move tables. but anyways, this one guy told me i was cute and stuff...and how i look like i only date good looking i suppose that just means that we care too much about our face and sometimes people can't even see it existed. dang, it's 2 something am and i'm still up, maybe tha'ts why i'm breaking out..hehe..goodnight

Re: staying in

oh i feel you on this topic. I was on accutane for 5 months with a breakout of tons of painful pimples 3 months straight. I did nothing but stay home and feel sorry for myself. My boyfriend thought i didnt like him anymore becuase i made up excuses and couldnt bear for him to see me like that. I lost alot of my friends becuase since i always refused thier offer of hanging out they just never really called me anymore. I almost lost my boyfriend which i thank god he loved me so much he never gave up on me. Im not going to tell u that u guys are lame for letting acne come between your life because i know exactly how u feel and i did it myself. IT SUX! but ya know as long as your doing something for it you know everything is going to get better. I know how embarassing it is to go out like that and i would never want anyone to look at my skin so usually i just stayed quiet and never talked. One thing ill tell ya is im sure ur friends have already seen your skin and it wouldnt change anything between u all. Sometimes people dont notice things as much as u may think they do. My best friend was seeing me like that everyday and when i would ask her if it looked better she said she couldnt tell me because she really doesnt even notice it anymore. Hang in there it will eventually get better! HuGs 2 EvErYoNe!

Re: staying in

Actually some friends end up turning evil because they use your skin problem to feel better about themselves. When I had a few months filled with breaking out I noticed they would treat me differently...I still to this day see some of those people and they are the ones now who are having troubles in their what goes around comes around.
Sometimes I stay in because of ONE pimple, I'd rather have 5 small ones than one that is right by your mouth and is picked and pink raw skin.

Re: staying in


I stay in and hide out EVERYNIGHT, EVERYDAY, ALL DAY, ALL NIGHT.... Except school which is HELL everyday..

I leave at 6:40am...

Even though by around 9:00am I start to get more comfortable...

But by 11:00am I just wana go home..

Then finally at 1:43 I get to go home!!!!! <IMG SRC=""> <IMG SRC="">

I LOVE MY HOUSE... Then I just HIDE out and eat healthy until I have to sleep and then do it all over again the next day and so ON.......

Been doing it for 1 month it's like routine now....

This ACCUTANE initial breakout is HELL, Literally..... My face looks plain sick....

I dont even want to describe it for my mental sake...


MY face has NEVER looked like this in my life...

The scariest thing is being at school EVERYDAY trying to act NORMAL... And just Hoping & PRAYING that NOBODY says ANYTHING about your face in front of EVERYONE YOU KNOW.

It has happend a couple times this school year since the accutane initial breakout for the past 1 month is making my face look like it never looked b4..

People have never seen me like this.... But lucky for me NO-ONE was there when this dude made a comment..only like 1 other dude....But it still sucked.. all it did was REMIND me that my face infact DOES look like plain dog $!&t !

The only was I BARELY GET BY EACH DAY... Is that I NEVER look in mirrors, NEVER touch it cuz it reminds me, and TRY to forget about it...

It's so hard though.. I can feel it, I know it's there....

I tru to keep in mind it's just red things on my face.. It only changes my facial appearancee and my BACK & Shoulders....

It's like REALLY it's JUST bumps... I try to get it in my head. Besides that it doesnt look too appealing.. It's really JUST "something"... I'm still me.. I still have my same friends.... I still talk o the same people...

I just dont try to get with girls.. LOL.. Why make a fool of myself to her and myself....

I know i a girl looked like me I wouldnt want to chill with her..

BUT...........Now my outlook on life is totally diff. I will be way more considerate with things that are wrong with people physically.... I will be a way better person.. Infact I alreay am... i cant stand when people talk about other people..


Damn,, I DID IT AGAIN!!!! Went all CRAZY and typed a LONG A$$ post..

It's these damn ACCUTANE mood swings.. I HAVE to speak my mind but theres TOO MUCH TO SPEAK... I CAN GO ON FOREVER...

I G2G!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: staying in

16 you remind me of how I felt when minocycline f*cked up my face (to me). My friends noticed, my family noticed, but the only ones that made remarks were (besides them) just the typical people I knew personally who feed off of others' misery. What's strange now is an adult who said to me strangely 'you have so many zits now, what happened' isn't even alive anymore...from cancer...just made me believe how trivial it was for a few pimples to be talked about like it was a big deal. That only lasted a few months but you never forget. I'm telling you it is a big deal right now but when it is over you will only be left with a few annoying memories. High School is temporary, believe me........believe me......believe me......

Re: staying in

If anyone goes back and reads my Jan 01 posts I probably talked about the person who made the remark because thats when it was said. Now that I think back (that she is dead now) it seems so lame. It's just how she was, I got over it. It was only once and it was just how she talked with people. But anyway in my old posts I probably talked about my suffering and my updates and such. Almost 2 years later I am much better.
