  • From this study (5 days ago):

  • Acne isn't severe in that it is vast, but what I do get is large spots that resemble whiteheads, but deep beneath the surface. They stick around for months without ever changing or coming to a head. Sometimes they itch.

    My idea of severe weight gain: 25lbs in 6 weeks.
