Month 1 Recap

Posted by missjoens, 26 August 2013 · 413 views

I had my blood drawn today and am going to the doctor tomorrow to take my pregnancy test to get my next months prescription. The things I noticed the first month: during my first week, nothing really happened.  Rolling into the second week I was extremely dry and if I did not have chap stick, I would probably go insane.  My scalp start...


Day 26-And So The Acne Begins

Posted by missjoens, 25 August 2013 · 418 views

Well...I think I am finally in full on breakout mode.  It started a couple of days ago where I really started to see the white stuff coming out of my pores and the pimples are all over now....started on chin, left side of face and just about an hour ago, I noticed my forehead is starting to break out.  I don't know if it is just me, but it comes...


Day 20

I feel like things may finally be working.  I wanted to see some acne pop up so I am glad my face has a few new pimples.  The main thing is still dryness and everybody asks if I was out in the sun because my face and ears are very red.  I will post pictures in the next few days but I feel like my face is looking the same.


Day 10

Whoa....I am dry.  I woke up this morning and my whole chin pretty much peeled off.  I have these intense itches that are insane and last for minutes at a time.  I was ready to itch my scalp and forehead off yesterday.  I have been putting stuff on my lips non stop and am to the point I may have to do the same on my face.  My make...

Day 5

I am on day five and all I have noticed is dry lips, my eyes were dried out one day and one new pimple on my left cheek.  All of my other cysts are still here, nothing has really healed.  I am sure it is just too early for that.  Does anybody know when I should be expecting the "big break out"?


Got My Prescription

I uploaded pictures of the current condition of my face as of today.  I got my prescription and am just waiting for the doctor to update the website so I can go online and fill out the questions and get the prescription filled. Ready to do this!!!  No better birthday present than starting Accutane http://www.acne.org/...d//public/st...


My First Visit To The Derm

Posted by missjoens, 29 June 2013 · 344 views

I have been struggling with cystic and nodule acne for many years now and have tried everything.  I asked for Accutane about a year back, but no go.  I was a little worried when I went to the Dermatologist and they said I would be placed on Accutane.  Now that it is a go, all of the side effects and thought of the initial breakout seems a l...
