Day 337 ( Day 7 Month 12)
 
Helloo! How are you?
 
It's almost 1 year since i've started this journey and i don't know how i feel. I am not clear yet, but i'm thinking about giving up. I mean i have 44-45 kg and i reached my max. dose ( min is 120mg/kg and max 150/kg, isn't it?). I'm pretty sure that it's not ok to take more than my organism can lead.
The next tuesday i'll go at my derm and we'll talk about this. A few weeks ago he said to me about BC pills. I've never taken these pills. He said that maybe these will help my face. don't know what to do.. to take or not to take?

 

now i have mostly scars and ~3 places where i feel some nodules that do not want to get out.
 the redness kills me :'(

Hello!! Maybe ur derm suggested bc pilla becus he most thinks its hormonal since maybe he feela the acne keepa coming back, have u kept track when mosty like around after or before ur period. I think if u starr noticing a pattern of ur breakouts around ur cycle then u may def. Figure ur acne keepa reoccuring becus its hormonal maybe thats y i wuld feel maybe accuatne hasnt been working as much cus active acne keepa appearing.

^^ sorry for many mispelling . Lol

DAY 410 ( DAY 46 AFTER LAST PILL)

 

Hello guys! smile.png

 

so i finished the journey 1 month and 15 days ago, i was 1 year without a day on accutane (something happened to one pill and the other one i gave to my cousin), 20mg/day everyday so i took 7280 mg.

 

my min dose should have been 5520mg (120mg/kg) and my max 6900mg (150mg/kg) so i took it a few days more smile.png)

 i still have scars how you can see and the redness :(

i went at sea at the end of august but for my face i used 50SPF and i did not get tan hahaha

people said that there is an improvement but again i'm not sure i can see it hahah.

this week i will go to see my derm. again because the last time i've gone there was at the end of june.

i'll see what he will say and if i have to take BC or not :/

hey! How are you? smile.png
It's the 81th day without accutane and i don't have clear face yet:(
 
i went to see another dermatologist and i said to her that i was on accutane and i asked her what i'm supposed to do now hahaha. She gave me a topical cream, "Cicalfate Restorative Skin Cream"
 

A technologically advanced restorative skin cream that helps speed the recovery process by maintaining an optimal healing environment for the skin.

 

  • • Helps speed the skin recovery process 
  • • Provides a healthy skin environment to minimize a potential infection 
  • • Prevents signs of scarring 
  • • Fragrance-free, preservative-free, colorant-free 
  • • Avène Thermal Spring Water to soothe and soften the skin 
  • • Hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic

 
On november i'll go to see her again and she said that i should do a dermabrasion because maybe it can help to reduce my scars and redness. she said that it should be the first thing i should try, before chemical peeling or laser. i agree with her hahaha.
a few minutes ago i saw again my old photos, from when i was on accutane and i'm in shock! 
i have not realised only now -what an improvement-. i mean i see my face every day on the mirror and i say that it looks so bad and things like this but when i saw those pictures i thought -if i feel in this way now, how i felt then? -
 
it is said that if you take accutane you can become depressed and now i can say that i was depressed too. not so depressed that i would cut my veins but i did not feel comfortable with myself, i haven't gone out and everytime i found a reason for this. i did not realise then sad.png i knew how your face can look if you take accutane, because i read so many blogs but when it happens to you it's not enough.
 
take care if you're on accutane too!
