    I eatchoo cheese!...
    Pat likes cheese, eh? Pack it in his lunches!

    I love cheese so much. I know you are missing it.
    I am proud of you for vlogging through the uncomfortableness of it all.. I would miss you terribly if you weren't missing.

    A lot of times, you keep me moving forward, and I don't even think you realize.
    Thanks for your friendship, and caring. :)

    Jackie--the redness you are experience reminds me of a friend's skin problem she had when she was in her early 30s, which was actually not regular acne it was called rosacea (I think pronounced ro-zay-shuh). I believe she had meds for it but I can't remember what they were called but they helped her quite a bit, so if you can, I would for sure suggest going to your doc.
    You aren't a negative Nellie, btw, we understand your frustration! Good luck on this and keep us posted!

    I know you don't want to go to the dr because of insurance junk, but I seriously think you need a round of antibotics. You need a round of Tetracycline.

    Sometimes it takes a few days for things to "work out" of your skin...it could be that you are having a reaction to the Proactive and it is working it's way out.

    It might be time to visit that dr :o(

    I think you are right that it is some kind of allergic reaction. In all of the time I have been watching your vlogs your skin has never been like this. If it is itching then I think that there is something allergic happening. As usual skin breakouts would be sore not itchy.
    I have never had a major problem so I cannot say I know exactly how you feel but I understand that you feel upset and that you are dissapointed that your skin is like this for your birthday but it will get better and your will sort it out.
    I hope you are feeling better sooner than later.

    I remember I once read this blog from this author who is vegan. She said when she stopped eating dairy her skin started to clear up some, but not totally. It wasn't until she cut out sugar totally that it really cleared up. I cannot make any claims to that since I've done neither of those things for long enough to notice a difference, but I think it makes some sense. When I was in high school, I had acne but not very bad. And in high school, I ate so much better than I have in the last few years.

    My acne tends to be hormonal. It's always worse 2 weeks before my cycles...and it always looks worse because I can't stop picking at it! Ugh!!

    Anyway, Did you ever see that documentary called a new face for Marley? Every time I get down about my acne I think of that, and then it all seems not so bad. That's not to say you can't be frustrated about it sometimes, but it just helps, I think, to put things in perspective.

    Chin up, face forward and don't forget to SMILE! That's one of your most beautiful features! :)
