Adult Acne

My skin has been and still is the bane of my existence sometimes. I thought teenagers got acne, and then it packed its bags and left, never to return, but NO! My face, my body… I now get spots in places I didn’t even know I had skin capable of producing spots. Having tried every…

Living with someone with a chronic illness

My Three most memorable Halloween experiences!
