Can't believe it's over, but I'm finished with Accutane!

(only because I was ter...

Day..? Month 6!

Posted by whatthekell, 21 February 2013 · 624 views

I lost count of the days. I could check my last bog and count but I don't want to. I just started my 6th month on Monday. Those of you who have been following me know that I was supposed to be finished at month 5. Although, my derm did say "hopefully 5 months will do it". Well like I said in my last post, I do still get a small breakout before/after my pe...

Things are still going good! I am still getting pimples. Can't wait for that to stop. I just started my 4th month staying on 60mg/day.

hey everyone

not a whole lot to update this week, so this will be short.

i do have a new side effect i got probably friday? i have a rash all over both arms and the tops of my hands. i've never had eczema before, but i'm assuming this is what this is? it doesn't hurt or itch, it's just red and gross looking and you can feel it when you...

meaning, i broke out a few times. last weekend for whatever reason, i went on a picking spree. hadn't done that in so long that i felt so ashamed. luckily i had the weekend to let it calm down. everything dried up and peeled off. we had dinner at a friend's on sunday and i remember sitting at the table under the...
