Just wanted to say I know exactly how you feel. Acne is seriously the worst disease ever. I think accutane will do wonders for your skin. I see that your going to start taking fish oil? I would recommend not doing this. Fish oil caused my skin to become extremely oily and I broke out with small zits then big cysts just a few days after using it.
Instead I would recommend that you check out my regimen that has kept me clear for the past 6 months. Obviously you can't use a multivitamin since your taking accutane but you can surely take the other 2 supplements. It has worked wonders for my skin and i actually have confidence. http://www.acne.org/...__fromsearch__1
All the best!

DAY 4 - it doesnt seem like it should be almost a week yet but it is!! No headaches, dry skin or lips, backaches, crankyness ... nothing of a side effect (yet)!! I do however have 3 new bumps, the under the skin kind that hurt, on my forehead ... I RARELY get more than 1 or 2 at a time on my forehead so I'm trying to tell myself this is my IB and my skn is purging itself "/ FUN!! I will post pictures tonight AHHHHHH!! Hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend

DAY 5 --- Well today begins the dry spell I guess ... I have some dry patches randomly throughout my face!! Im scared silly to go over board on lotion (Cetaphil which is also my wash) bc I dont want to break out worse!! Other than that I'm good No dry lips,headaches, sad feelings, backaches, gotta keep reminding myself of the positives!!

DAY 11 --- UGH lesson learned!! Be careful what you wish for ... I woke up today and my lips are PEELING they are so dry the weather here has gotten in colder and windy so I think that could have aided in it but AHH they hurt!! If they are like this the whole 6 months my lips will peel off my face!! Other than that nothing new to report ... face is still oily and breaking out, no headaches, my intestines are still working, and I don't has to desire to cause any homicide scenes!!

Fingers crossed everything goes your way and that you get the skin you'd like by the end of the course.
Regarding what that poor excuse for a human being said on Facebook, there's none of that here and you can rest assured that this is a safe place for you to post pictures if you wish to do so. The general consensus around the logs is that it's a great way to track progress every couple of weeks or so. Plus, I'd imagine it's nice to look back and compare the pictures at the start to the impressive results a lot of people posting here get at the end.

Well I guess I can find some good, right?! I still have had no headaches, intestinal issues, body aches, or mood swings other than ^ post but my face and body have been bothering me for over a year now so nothing new there.
Thanks Paul, I hope to have a “new” face also and it’s refreshing to not feel judged by how my face looks!! Is there a way to post pictures that are on your iphone? When I log on from my phone I cant seem to find a way to do it!

If you're on your laptop, you should be able to attach pictures using the 'Attach Files' section just below the reply box when you click 'More reply options'. I'm on my laptop now and that's working fine for me so. Give it a go and see what happens.
The other way of doing it is the 'Image' button. That comes up with all the other icons at the top of the reply box when you click, 'More reply options'. I'm assuming that's the one you tried? Can't see why that wouldn't display, it should bring up a pop-up box where you can enter a link to your image if you've got it stored online somewhere. I often do it that way and upload my pictures to a site like tinypic.com and then paste the link into the pop-up box.

Thanks Paul for all your help, or I don't think I ever would have figured it out
Here goes nothing ...
