Sorry for the delay. Got a little bit disheartened and didnt keep up to date with the log. But i have still be taking pictures every week!
Only other updates is that for some reason the accutane side effects have become a ton worse. Super dry/red skin which is burning every second i expose it to the sun! Its ridiculous! Oh and the fact that i've started sweating a TON, i was always a sweaty person to begin with but this is ridiculous. Any form of physical exercise and i am streaming. Oh well not long now.
Next dermatology appointment 7th May! Final 2 months hopefully.
Oh and i had a britney moment and shaved my head. Stupid idea. So much regret.

Wow, your skin is looking amazing! You're really coming along. Have you increased your dosage or stayed the same? I'm on week eight and this week has been really rough in terms of side effects so I feel your pain. Hang in there, it's hard to see the progress in ourselves sometimes but I can see a big improvement.
Thanks! It seems to have really come through just all of a sudden. Was at the end of my tether with it all for those first few months. I think because i had put up with rubbish skin for so long when i started the treatment i really didnt have much patience and did want an overnight fix. I started on 40mg each day for 2 months then got put up to 60mg each day for 2 months. When i go back this time it should go to 80mg each day for two months.
That will average 80mg per day for 4 months. Which is the required dose for my bodyweight. Just spread out over 6 to make it more manageable.
Even though my skin is now clear and i am more confident in general. I do think that the years of it have damaged me emotionally to some degree. My derm has referred me to some department to sort out my anxiety issues. Apparently social anxiety is a thing, a medical thing.

Im quite far in now! Think its been just over 5 months now. I am now on 80mg per day til the end of my course which is only 1 month away! Now i am back in the office my skin isnt being as battered by the elements as it was previously so i think its looking good. Still moisturising and applying blistex 20 times a day. Trying my best to stay out of the sun as i burn like a champion now.
