It's hard to stay positive. My cheeks are a red, pimply, inflamed mess.  My face is much worse than it ever was pre-acutane.  But, hopefully, my skin will be

clear by prom in mid May.  I just feel like everyone is staring at me and wondering why I don't do something about my skin.

I know exactly how you feel, I feel in the same way bro.. But hey.. Go take a look at some other logs, and you will see how bad they felt etc. etc. and now they're great without any acne! I know it's hard to think positive while having acne, but try as much as u can. In the end you will probably just think "Why didn't I just feel happy all the time?.. Clear skin in a matter of time! :)

DAY 85

 

Feeling happy. Improvements and only like 1 pimplet under my skin left. Life is great, enjoying waking up every morning to see new positive results. Skin has become more dry upping my dosage, as well as my lips have. It's ok - if just I remember to mousturize. Hugs everyone and GL to everyone on accutane :)

Day 101

 

Sorry for haven't been updating in a while. Breakouts are calming down. Getting a lot pimplets on my throat ( have never got any pimplets on my throat ). Very dry skin, really need to remember to mousturize. Lips has become more dry, but it's ok with lip balm with me. Birthday soon, hope to have no breakouts more... 

Still a lot red marks... Appointment in 1½ month :)

 

Hugs to everyone

I am about half way through my treatment- taking 40 mg 2X a day and now the pharmacy tells me Claravis in on backorder.  I have been trying to get it for 2 weeks, and they just told me that today.  I have 2 pills left.  I am ticket that I am going to have to go without for who knows how long.  My skin isn't really breakout, but it is covered with red marks and looks like crap.  This is my 2nd month on 80mg total a day and I other than dry lips, I don't really have side effects.

Hello everyone..

 

I'm so sorry that I haven't been updating my blog for like forever..

 

It's like 3½ months since I finished Accutane. I had a great result! I have no active acne, but still struggling with some red marks, but they are getting better!

 

I will wait and see how I look like 6 months post - accutane, and then I might start using AHA+ from acne.org

 

I hope you all have a great time, thanks for your attention :)

Hello everyone :)

 

A few people have been asking about an update, so here it comes:

 

Six months have now passed since I stopped taking accutane. I still have some red marks, but I hope they will fade in time :) I will not start using anything to my face beside daily mousturizer, and sometimes I use facewash. I dont feel acne is affecting me anymore, which is great and lovely. I'm sitting here reflecting about how bad my life was back when I had acne. I felt so terrible, so lonely, so useless - it was a nightmare.. It's hard not to be moved to tears when I think of all this, because it accutane has really changed my life in an unbelievable way - it really has. I remember when I didn't wanted to look in the mirror in the morning, because I feared that I had got another 10 pimplets over night :( . I'm not getting anymore active acne, and it's so calming for me knowing what I look like every morning hehe.. 

 

To all of you that are currently taking accutane - please be patient. Don't think a lot about your acne, please.. Think about all the positive things in your life! Isn't it amazing you can walk without feeling pain? Think of elderly! I know it's so very hard not to think of your acne, but one day it will go away, it's just a matter of time. I really have learned that patient is so important.

 

I would also like to thank a lot of users here from acne.org for the amazing support, you've have really been helpful - and I have got answers to all my questions that I had. It's amazing. A special thanks to a special user; EatsRainbows. She has been helping and supporting me through-out the journey, and we still keep contact, we really have built a strong friendship, and I'm so pleased knowing this girl. The days I were crying she was there for me in a moment. This girl has so many characteristics that make her on of the most empathic, helpful and kind girl that I have ever met in my life. This girl has not just helped me regarding to my acne, but also with my life in general. I can never thank this girl to much, I really love her.

 

If anyone have any questions please leave me a message or comment in this topic. I wish everyone a very lovely day

 

Oh .... and here is some pictures taken just 10 minutes ago literally. Accutane makes wonders. Hugs wub.png
