Accutane... F**k Month 2!

Posted by musicvisuals, 24 March 2014 · 337 views

Im on like day 43 and I keep getting like 1-2 new spots at least each day for the last 10 or 15 days!!!! And now the red spots/acne are adding up...I've been here before...but this time at least I can blame the tane. Im a professional cinematographer/editor and people pay "alot" for me to show up as a professional and I just feel so unprofessional with acne. When I have clear skin I even dress nicer and make sure im looking sharp but with acne im so unmotivated and feel unconfident and I HATE when that even effects my creativeness behind the camera...its ironic because I've been afraid of HD cameras in my face yet my job is shooting people with the highest quality cameras available..they always have clear skin to and I just think to my self maybe one day this will be me. I know in the back of my mind i could stop getting acne any day but i also know this could carry on for sometime or even get worse..
 
Has anyone else had a rough month 2?




Hey there. I just started month two and I am breaking out as well! I've pretty much been following your pattern. I was clear the first 5 days on accutane but since then it been a pretty steady breakout. I hope this clears up for both of us pretty soon bc I can not take it anymore! I'm so ready to be clear and I know you are too!! I'm going to say a prayer for you that you begin to clear rapidly!! I know how frustrating and depressing acne can be! Just keep imagining clear beautiful skin. Stay positive my friend!!!

You know what I think makes it even harder? We got to taste the pure water that is clear skin for a week...and then right after we're hammered with what we hate the most. I wanted to stay clear so bad, I was sooo close to feeling normal...going out on a whim..making plans for next week without thinking about canceling...wanting to go out and explore whatever comes my way, having conversations with strangers, talking to them eye to eye without flinching. For just a moment in the beginning there I thought it really was going to be that easy. But now the red spots are adding up and arent going away like normal and new ones continue to come...its a sick joke lol. Thank you for reaching out and saying a prayer, I will say one for you to. I'm going to try and stay positive; I know theres a sunny field over this mountain of shit that we must climb. 

I'm with you on this :(

The last time I was on accutane (for 3 months) the first few weeks were the worst, and then it really got better after month 2. Don't let it get you down. Just think that you're already 2 months down and closer to the end goal. I've heard from many people that month 3 is where things really turn around!

thanks for the encouragement, its definitely alot worse than normal but it def feels good to be closer!! Hope your doing good!
