At 9 I got my first training bra, at 11 I got my first period, by 13 I was an awkwardly smelling ball of oil and body odor wondering why on Earth anyone would ever look forward to becoming a teen. While I was an early bloomer, as Momma so delicately put it, this only seemed to mean that I endured the toughest of teenage trials at an early and amplified rate. Because Momma had endured torturous chiding and bullying over her complexion and advanced acne in high school, she was proactive about the first signs of trouble on my face. I recall thinking it was one of the least of my problems when a blackhead appeared- but I was much more on the nerdy side of the playground schematics than the image absorbed.
Regardless, I was promptly put on a strong dosage of Tetracycline, an antibiotic that was, more often then, prescribed by dermatologists and general physicians for moderate to severe acne control. Despite sounding similar to fish food, this antibiotic is quite powerful- in fact, it was so powerful my oral surgeon could deduce I had taken it in moderation some 15 years prior, during a recent tooth extraction. I'll spare you the details but we'll say my jaw was not looking its whitest as a result.
