Day 61 - Dry Mouth And Vocal Strain

Posted by inndem, 20 December 2012 · 316 views

Everyone who uses their voice professionally knows that certain things like coffee, smoking, and air conditioning can make you lose your voice a lot faster. What it all boils down to is that a dry mouth is bad for your voice. Recently, I've been really struggling with this. I drink tons of water throughout the day, so that's not the problem. And...


Day 48/49 - New Prescription, Blood Test Results

Posted by inndem, 07 December 2012 · 383 views

I went to see my derm today. I really like talking to her. When she saw me she said, "Oh, I see you've been taking your medication!" She wrote me a prescription for 40 mg daily. Right now I'm on 30 mg, but she said that sometimes even an extra 10 mg can cause a lot of discomfort and that it would be better to take it slow. She said she...


Day 42 - Time, Rashes

Posted by inndem, 30 November 2012 · 358 views

Time flies. Even when you're not really having fun. I always wanted a quick fix for acne. No, that's what I expected to find. When my derm told me I might be on Accutane for 5 - 10 months, I had some serious doubts. Ten whole months? Or even five? That seemed like forever. I couldn't possibly wait that long! But you know what? It's...


Day 32 - Family

Posted by inndem, 21 November 2012 · 476 views

Flamingplatypus's latest blog entry got me thinking, why is it that it's usually our families that make us feel really bad about our skin and acne when they're the ones that are supposed to make us feel good/better about ourselves?

For example, almost every...


Day 27 - Blackheads, Sleep, And Pics!

Posted by inndem, 16 November 2012 · 434 views

I've been kind of tired the last couple days. Sleepy all day long. Yeah, I haven't been getting enough Zs, and I feel like sleep deprivation is a lot more noticeable on Accutane. But I do feel okay when I get at least 8 hours of sleep.

I was kind of surprised when I looked in the mirror today. I rarely pay any attention to my nose, but today I...


Day 25 - Dry Throat, Smoking, And Popping

Posted by inndem, 14 November 2012 · 520 views

I used to smoke. I started when I was thirteen. Crazy, I know. And it's not like I grew up in a broken home. I quit last year when I realized I'd been smoking way too much. It had kind of gotten out of control.

Now, I was buying some lottery tickets earlier today and I don't really know why, but I got myself a pack of coconut cigarillos. Later...


Day 22 - Weight, Spreadsheet, And Back Acne + Spreadsheet How-To

Posted by inndem, 11 November 2012 · 520 views

More peeling around the lips. The right corner cracked something fierce, but I brought it back to normal with my lip balm and some vaseline. My scalp's kind of dry and I haven't shampooed in 3 days, but that's as far as I'll take it. I've put on some weight. Now, I don't think you could tell just by looking at me, which is weird, but...


Day 20 - Flakiness, Sweating

Posted by inndem, 09 November 2012 · 278 views

Since my last entry I've gone from having two to three whiteheads/pustules most of the time to one or none at all Posted Image which is awesome. And I don't have anything on my scalp, either.

I haven't really noticed any new side effects. There was some flaking on my chin...


Day 13 - Weird Skin, Sex Drive, And Anti-Inflammatory Foods

Posted by inndem, 02 November 2012 · 538 views

My skin is so weird right now, I can't even... It looks really dry and micro-flaky after I take a shower, but then when I put on some moisturizer, it looks really oily. It doesn't matter what kind of moisturizer I use. And it was perfect 3 days ago : ( I also got a couple whiteheads today. Nothing serious, though.

No new side effects. But there is...


Day 12 - Shampooing, Micro-Flakiness

Posted by inndem, 01 November 2012 · 352 views

Don't need to shampoo every day now Posted Image but I do use conditioner every time I take a shower. My acne's pretty much the same as it was 3 days ago... that is, I'm almost clear, but not quite. My eyes were a little dry today. And my face looks really dry and...
