Consider yourself warned that this will be the post where a grown adult bitches about zits…
Really. How is it even possible that continue to get zits when you’re damn near pushing forty? Isn’t it bad enough that I blessed with horrible skin through most of my adult life. Isn’t the fact that I have to pay a pretty penny to see a dermatologist (not covered by my basic co-pay) on a regular basis painful enough? What about the $60+ prescriptions that bleach my clothes and my bedding?
While I don’t mind the occasional, monthly, PMSy blemish from time to time. But really, the painful ones? The ones that take nearly a week to surface at which time you’ve dried up half your chin with the prescriptions, yet it’s still there? Come on, give a gal a break. Let me have some clear, blemish (and crater) -free skin for longer than a month please. Shouldn’t I at least be rewarded in some way for getting older and getting even closer to 40? When is it going to stop?!?!?!
