    I was thinking that you were thinking it was a funky spelling of "Demon" -- you know Demin

    but yeah, on the accutane stuff, pretty sure her doctor warned her of the risks so either she ignored them, or she really is so unlucky that she got pregnant despite the fact that you're supposed to be on the pill and use condoms if you're on it. and given that this is a woman who has gone bankrupt twice because of her out of control spending habits, i'm gonna wager that responsible behaviour isn't something she does well.
    I can't wrap my head around anyone thinking any child is a punishment. I understand that it can be tremendously difficult to raise a child with profound special needs. But a punishment? It's a child.

    ^^ It's a version of guilt. It's not much different than a woman with a disabled child beating herself up over the one glass of wine or the sushi she ate or the vaccinations she let her child have. I think it's pretty standard to blame ourselves. And when we do that aren't we implying the result is our punishment? Her guilt just has a deity in it.

    Shame and guilt are really powerful emotions and many times, nothing rational about them.

    I guess I would have a hard time viewing my child as punishment for something I did in my past. I'm not a believer in anything, but I would question believing in a god that punished an innocent child because of something the parents did. That's all kinds of fucked up.

    I had very bad, cystic acne for a long time, and I found that Aveeno Positively Radiant Brightening Cleanser combined with not popping/picking at my acne (and keeping touching it to a minimum) has worked wonders. I don't know if your acne is cystic or not, and I don't know whether the cleanser works as well on non-cystic acne, but it's certainly something I'd suggest trying. Learning not to touch, pop, or pick at my acne also helped a lot, because all that does is spread the infection. Both accutane and a daily antibiotic sound like really bad ideas to me, healthwise.

    I currently have another prescribed regimen that is working okay. It seems to be the way of things that I will find something that works for six months or so...and then it will no longer work and sometimes even make things worse. I had a lot of stress last year, too, which left me vulnerable to infection (thus acne outbreaks) and had some terrible cystic acne along my cheekbones on both sides of my face. It stopped, but then I tried a regimen made by Rodan + Fields to help me with the scarring left from that and that just tore my skin up. I am good about not picking at it, but that only seems to help so much. My friend who sells it kept insisting I needed to just use it longer, but it wound up sending my face on a terrible cycle

    My skin is very oily which is nice in some ways because it stays very young looking. The acne was never this bad when I was a teen, though. I had some, but my adult acne has been a pretty constant battle

    But anyways, back to Toni Braxton: she manages to sound both demented and insulting at the same time with this. I hope someone who's judgement she values tore her a new one after this.

    Isn't it fun to buy acne meds and anti-wrinkle cream on the same shopping trip?

    She doesn't see her son as punishment. She sees his condition as something she caused because she displeased God. Nutso for sure, but I see guilt, too.

    Well, God gave me hemorrhoids, since I'm a pain in everyone else's ass.

    My issue with this isn't that she has these feelings, but that she published them in a book for her son to read or hear about one day.
