Oh my God you weigh 7 stone 2? i bet you're one of those lovely petite people that I envy, you lucky thing! I hate being tall! Anywayy, I'd like to say I've been off Accutane for four months now, but I remember when the oil crept back I was like NOOOOOOOOOOOO, but it did stop. I think it was my body just getting used to being off the drug. I also use a mattifying moisturiser and a toner, and translucent powder to set my makeup. Don't lose heart, just try and keep a routine with your skin; I like to use peeling facemasks each week which really help. If it gets worse and youre really upset I suggest seeing your derm and perhaps asking to go on accutane again, as sometimes it takes people a couple of courses to get really clear. Good luck with whatever you decide
Haha, Idk people tell me im skinny, im 5'4 so its a good weight i guess. YEAH IT SUCKS! I used to love never worrying about mattifying products. What makeup do you use? Yeah my derm said she might want me on Spiro because she thinks mines hormonal since its all in the "mans beard area" (chin, jawline, right around the mouth) those are the only places I get acne.

If the depression continues, go see someone.....trust me. Chronic depression is not normal and you will not just snap out of it.
Take care of yourself and be well and remember that acne is not who you are!
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.
Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

how did you get your iron and b12 if not from meat?
these are trick questions, because the above are the only real ways to get those vitamins, if you are tired, it could be partially related to iron and b12 deficits.
the type of iron the is only in meat, is used to deliver oxygen via red blood cells to your body for energy purposes, plant based sources wont cut it. there is a possibility your energy has little to do with accutane, but accutane may be related. you will only truly know this when you test all of the above hypothesis and see which one helps.
the optimal functioning of your body will never come down to one substance alone, it takes many substances all at the same time, and this applys to accutane, dont expect too much from it, especially if your deficient in certain viitamins.

#2 Fats- monounsaturated should dominate(olives), followed by polyunsaturated plant sources(nuts) but not if you have acne. the health benefits of fish oil and fish are controversial and i dont consume them due to mercury contamination and immune supression avoid processed fats if possible.
#3 Protein/amino acids- dairy and eggs best sources for tryptophan and methionine which convert to powerful antioxidants melatonin and glutathione.
#4 Carotenoids- alpha- beta carotene, beta cryptoxanthin, lutein zeaxanthin, astaxanthin. these are vital to human nutrition, carrots, butternut squash, pumpkin, chili pepper and cayenne pepper are the best sources.
#5 Regularity-BM at least once a day, Moist, large stools, 1 piece ideal, no maldigestion, no floating stools indicative of maldigested fat. HOW- insoluble fiber- wheat and cooked vegetables. soluble fiber-oats/ good bacteria ferment soluble fiber making short chain fatty acids that inhibit pathogens.
#6 Circadian cycles-Light, get up with the sun, and expose your entire body to it. darkness-melatonin is released upon the sensing of absolute darkness. sleep in a pitch black room, try to ensure 10 hours total darkness, wear sunglasses before bed. do not eat too late at night.
#7 Desirable physiological states(positive moods/emotions) do precisely what you like and what feels good to you, but not regardless of consequences, just from a perspective that, you own your life, and can determine precisely what you do with it and need not answer or ask of permission from anyone,achieving maximum autonomy and self government.
