When Freedom Seems So Far

I'm Gon' Die!

Posted by iCanDream, 13 September 2014 · 212 views

Not really, but I felt like it last night (more details later).

1 Month Survived!  
I'm about 2 days from my 1 month anniversary of starting Accutane, and it's a good time to summarize my progress up to now.
Overall, my experience with the pill has been amazing.  None of its side effects are anything more than a nuisance, and if they don't get any w...

Aquaphor, My Savior!

I'm officially one week into Myorisan (Accutane)!  
And... I'm SO VERY DRY.  I've been dry since about day 3, actually.  My lips, my nose, and the general area near those two are flaking out.  I'm not sure if becoming dry so quickly is a good sign that I react well to Accutane or a fair warning of serious consequences ahead.  I'll cont...

Today Is The Day!

Alright, ladies and gentleman!
I finally, FINALLY, picked up my box of Isotretinoin 40mg (Myorisan) pills!
I have not taken the pill yet, but I will very very soon.

I've already bought the Cetaphil, the Clerave, the Aquaphor, the foundation, the sunscreen, everything.  I am so ready to jump on this journey.
I probably won't tell you how the first da...

Losing My Mind

Posted by iCanDream, 07 August 2014 · 210 views

My 21st birthday is in 4 days.  
For a college student, this is supposed to be the most exciting birthday of my school career.  
It's the day I'm supposed to invite everyone I know over and celebrate passage into "adulthood".  
Instead of being excited, I'm terrified.  

Half a year ago, I would have planned for this to be the perfect...

The Waiting Game

Posted by iCanDream, 26 July 2014 · 212 views

Hello Guys!  (and Gals who don't like being called Guys)  
Thought I'd entertain you with a picture (or pictures) I drew this morning related to how I feel about my own acne.
This last week has been nothing but a waiting game for me... 
I wake up in the morning, eat my breakfast, go to school (research), and come home with a new pimple.  
The e...

One Battle Won, The War Continues

accutane, advice, dermatologist
I'm so sorry!  
I haven't written in over a month, and it was intentional.  I don't want to write every day or every week when there is nothing interesting 
to write about.  What I've basically been doing this entire month is calling any dermatologist in my area I could find, and asking how soon I can be seen. 

A quick reminder, th...

This. Is. War.

I have a dream...
And that dream is to live.
I have a goal...
And that goal is to give...  
To give the world the best of me...
To rid it all so they can see...
The person that I am inside...
The face that I so often hide...  

My goal...  
is to be rid of my acne by the time senior year (of college) starts.  It's a need, no...

Is It Acne? Or Is It Me?

confidence, priorities, insight and 1 more...
Still no call from a dermatologist.  I'm beginning to feel like my summer will be over before I am able to see one, and that makes me very, very upset.  My goal is to be acne free by the time my senior year starts, and that would require me to be a few months into accutane... Time is running short!

My little obsession with my...

How Long Has It Been?

How Long Has It Been? Acne...    
There is nothing good I can say about it.  I hate it, I abhor it, I wish it never existed.
But, who here on this site doesn't feel the same?  I'm pretty sure there isn't a single person registered here who worships it.  If I find a blog about how amazing acne is, I'll make sure I comment, "haha, very funny. troll."
