.......still staying away from mirrors.... Everytime i look at my reflection i die a little, i sigh, pout, make a rude gesture to myself....and then i feel like pounding the mirror to dust..... Aarrrggghhh.... So i won't look, try not to worry and stress too much about it, and try to live a little........

Yaaaaahhhh.... And watch a lot of adventure time..... I'm gonna go nuts like there's bugs in my butt....haha

I think your skin is clearing up great! You just have redmarks that will fade with time. You really have to be patient and give it some time. Accutane isn't a quick fix. I'm in the same boat as you...and I completely understand it is very hard. But there is light at the end of the tunnel! Good luck!

....been diagnosed with bipolar for almost two months now...... Still have bouts of depression.......crying crying, then feeling okay,feeling great like i can take on the world, and then the next thing i know, i'm crying again.....

Before i was diagnosed with bipolar, i was isolating myself, depressed, and didn't want to go out of the house...and that went on for more than a year.. Thats why i'm spending time with my relatives here in sg to take my mind off of things.... They've been really helpful. I'm currently on mood stabilizers, still have two more months of accutane... Im just hoping and praying that i can get through this....... That we all will get through this!!!

Thank you........ Yeah..... Those red marks.... Looks like freckles.....hahha... Looks worse when i'm under the sun, when its too hot...so i'm staying indoors lately coz it's hella hot here where i am now!

......whatever though hahaha damn these zits (post period breakout...... Aaarrggghh).............

......so...... I'm extending my vacation here in SG for a month, and the thing is i didn't bring my 5th dose of accutane... I messaged my derm and asked if whether i could skip this month then just continue as soon as i fly back home, or to find accutane here...... I was already freaking' out, coz idk what would happen if i missed my dose and fortunately my doctor said it's ok..... As long as i completed my over all dosage...he agreed with my the former option, and then i'm just gonna have to extend another month since i would be skipping my 5th.....

Whew.......just hoping my face won't go crazy s&@: this month...

....sooo back here in manila and consulted my derm...... coz i skipped a month of accutane...... back on the pill...... he said that hopefully it's still in my system and that i can keep up with it since it can leave my system as soon as a month's time and also that i may not have to take it from scratch....hopefully.....

.....still have zits popping out from nowhere....

.....question though (for people who have tried it...) what's better... a chemical peel or a simple baking soda scrub??????

soo i guess this is an update...

i've switched from using bitter gourd tea to the Moringa oleifera plant (since we have like three trees of it in our garden)...

has a lot of antioxidants and vitamins and really good for you......

i just brew the fresh leaves, then i add a little salt, vit c , and clindamycin and that's basically my toner which i use 2x a day.

i also try to cleanse with with the brewed tea at least 3-4x a week.

it's been soo helpful..... and i don't have to pay for it!!! i just pluck out leaves from our garden whenever i need it.....

hope you guys are all doing great!

...peace out!

Margox, what dosage of accutane are you on? I'm not sure you should be doing anything beyond, washing, toning and moisturizing, even if your course is modified. What made you decide to do a modified course versus a regular course? How long will you have to take the modified course?


It's a rocky road but like everything else in life, there is always a beginning and an end. Here's to finding my end.

God is good to me..........more than I deserve.

that modified course is prescribed by my doctor.... modified course meaning that i am only to take a prescribed dosage of medication every month.

i took 40mg accutane for 7days every month.... so that's 280mg a month

total of 1680 mg for the whole 6 months.

depending on the outcome, i may or may not take a 2nd course...that i still have to find out when i go back to my derm...

several months back, i've ditched some of the topicals from my derm and started using the mildest...

i just use cetaphil as my cleanser and moisturizer, and i make my own organic toner..... since i've cut the chemicals that i'm putting on my face, i've noticed changes in my skin that i didn't see when i was using all the prescribed topicals by my derm...

hoping it would continue for the better........

still have breakout at this point...it's the time of the month....slam bam in a can..... it's like this one zit in my cheek threw a party and invited a couple more of it's zit-friends!!!!

aarrrgghhh... just made my day...

i feel like punching someone....... sooo i'll stay out of people's way...and avoid mirrors..........

jump and run around the house...maybe that ought to take my fist from someone's face....

Keep strong girl! You are beautiful no matter what. i agree that chemicals can do more harm than good but sometimes they are a necessary evil.
