Relationship Issuesacne relationship accutane
Posted 23 April 2012 - 02:53 PM
Basically I'm in a relationship with someone, just started seeing them recently. At the same time, I've also just started a course of accutane. I'm not too far into it but I'm stressing out about the side effects already, I know it'll all be worth it in the end and I can't wait for the clear skin but I'm worried mostly about the initial breakout that most people seem to get on this drug. Basically what I'm worried about is that my skin's going to get a lot worse before it gets better, and this is something I can putup with because I know it's going to get better, but I'm worried about what others will think, particularly this woman I'm with.
I'm not sure if that makes sense, but for I'm not comfortable (I dont know why) with telling people I'm on this drug, ( I suppose I dont want people to think acne affects me or bring attention to it) but I dont want my friends and girlfriend to think that my skin will never get better...

- Tell everyone that you are taking some medicine and that will make your skin look a little weird but then don't say anything else. Make them believe that is not something that worries you.
- Don't tell them and pretend that your skin is weird because you "may" be allergic to something or wathever.
I don't think your girlfriend will care, i mean I'm a woman and that won't make think bad about a guy. She will be ok with that, and she will also see the results so... take it easy

Just tell her that you are taking a course of accutane and its going to make your skin really bad for a while, and say that you hope it doesn't bother her too much and that a couple weeks later your skin should start improving and become completely clear. I'm 99% sure that she will understand and probably say something sweet about how your skin doesn't matter to her, even if it does.

My situation is a little difference because my boyfriend of almost two years is from this website and he had some of the worst acne I've ever seen in pictures. He used Accutane and it cleared him up but he has scars, and he isn't ashamed of them. And neither am I! They are part of what makes him...him. They are beautiful in that respect.
I guarantee she'll be supportive of you if she cares about you. =)

When it comes to your girlfriend you could maybe just tell her something similar if you really are that uncomfortable telling her the full story. The really bad outbreak I had was only for about the first week and after that my skin was just pretty red. People will see the improvement in you after a while though so hang on in there. It does get better.
