Try me once and I might let you go.
Accutane felt like that, it was a gamble, a gamble that some win at and some lose at. Some walk away scotch free and others paid a toll. I was one of the unfortunate ones that did have to pay a price but I don't regret taking Accutane one bit. It was a miracle drug for me at the time.
That's all I wanted to say about Accutane.
I been wanting to do an update on here for a while now. So here I am! It's kinda sad how people will come on here when they are first starting any sort of acne treatment, blog throughout it and then at the ending of the course may even leave one last blog about how they're so clear and life is so great and- .....
They are gone, lol. Then sometimes like some people I know (ahem making a blog right now) might pop back up and be like HEYYY guess who has acne again? Guys... guys
Lol I've seen others do the same thing though. It's funny cause that's just how most of us are. We get caught up in our life when things are going great again. Although I did quickly check out the blogs and seen the drop of viewers go WAY down.
To start off, I know in my last blog before I went M.I.A I mentioned I was losing a lot of hair. I've lost about 50% of hair due to Accutane and maybe even more than that. Who knows. I did start off with a ton of hair though so I don't have any bald patches or anything like that. My hair type when I started was thick Indian hair and now it's more towards thin hair. I guess I have more normal looking hair now as to before I had way more than an average amount of hair. I want to say it's because I'm Mexican and Indian. Lol Hopefully those genes will come back into play for me again. Edit: I want to say the hair falling as slowed down but just the other day I witnessed it again. My hair falling hasn't stopped yet. I'm not sure about the new baby hairs in the back. Looks like Ive gained some hair but still experiencing hair fall out.
My acne did come back, I'm not disappointed and am far from surprised. I expected my acne to come back that's why as soon as I got off of Accutane I started Retin-A as a prevention tool. However at one point I couldn't afford Retin-A at the percentage I was taking it so I had to go down quite a bit to only 0.05%.
I'm not exactly sure what it was that made my acne come back whether it was because my time of post Accutane was up, the fact that I lowered my dosage on Retin-A or my excessive intake of multi vitamins due to my hair loss.
I do want to say that my acne did not come back the way it was or used to be, god no but it did come back. I'm about 95% clear right now thanks to Dan's Regimen. You don't even know how much I've tried not to go on Dan's regimen, Lol. No offense Dan! I respect it! Lol
My problem was I just didn't want to go through the treatment process of it. Ughhh all the shedding and dry skin. I didn't want to! You couldn't make me!!! But my acne made me -_- Haha
I really hate using Neutrogena's BP not only is it EXPENSIVE but it's such tiny tubes! I've prob used up like 5 or 6 of those things! Then it usually clumps up with my moisturizer. I'm probably going to buy Dan's BP next paycheck since his seems really...logical.
It's been going pretty well. I chemically burned myself once cause I used too much like an idiot I don't know what I was thinking or what I was doing I just did it. I squeezed so much on my hand and just rubbed it all over my face and the next day my skin was like swollen but in a weird way. My skin wasn't red or anything it was just fat, Lol. My whole face was fat, shedding of course and it was tender haha I put too much on and it did suck for a few days but it actually helped my acne a ton when that happened. In result it cleared the left side of my face tremendously and completely cleared my jawline that had been breaking out for a while.
I hope to get 100 percent clear real soon. =)
