All my attempts to get perfect skin have B]FAILED[/B]. Now I am left with the one thing that brought me here in the first place. THE ONE THING THAT DESTROYED MY NW1 AND YOUTH BEFORE I HAD A CHANGE TO SAY NO. Accutane.
Life sucks. Badly.
Do I go on Accutane again? Do I risk taking it and losing more hair!? Will the Finasteride stop futher hair loss!??!?
What is more important, perfect skin or good hair? WHY DO I EVEN NEED TO MAKE THIS CHOICE!?? LIFE IS SO UNFAIR!
DEAR GOD, IF YOU'RE LISTENING, PLEASE MAKE IT END!!
I'm so afraid of taking Accutane again and going NW3 or having diffuse thinning. Will tapering on work? I'll only be taking 20-30mg a day.
I feel so depressed now. I'm going to keep fighting this for a few more years, but if it all fails then there's no point in going. Right now I feel defeated.
All of this has confirmed one thing: My genes are defective. I have moderately bad skin that is resistent to topical treatments. I will never have children. I refuse to pass on these genes. The world will keep on turning without me.
Couple tips I would recommend for acne:
1. Try a vegetarian diet, low in sugar, dairy, and saturated fats(If you can eliminate these three, that is even better, but I know it's hard to). Omega 3's are important though.
2. Drink plenty of clean water.
3. Switch from heavy weight lifting to cardio instead. For some reason, when I did just cardio, my skin felt great.
4. Try to lower stress.
5. Research Dr. Mercola and his website, to learn how he cured his acne with all natural approach.
*Be careful of accutane, and please research the side effects of this potent drug beforehand. I heard of a lot of serious side-effects it has.
Best of luck,
