DAY 17

My lips are so dry they are bleeding and looking purple, my nose is COVERED in blackheads that I didnt have before... new to that size effect. The headaches cause blurred vision. I am exhausted and withdrawn. Really avoiding social situations.

Wow, are those your real eyelashes? Pretty awesome.

And why do accutane zits HURT so much more? Sheesh. I totally noticed that too. Did you get a hand rash? I have an awful one.

 

Avoiding people here, too. I only leave the house with my camouflage makeup. That is what it is literally called. Unless it's work, I stay home to avoid having to wear it. I don't think it's making anything worse, but it can't possibly be helping.

I want my tiny bit o' foundation mixed in with my moisturizer days back.

 

I actually think it might be getting a bit better because so much has 'come up' in the past week, but hope is risky because it (so far) always leads to disappointment. And it LOOKS TERRIBLE - so that's enough to crush my hope.

Alas. A couple more months and then maybe some real hope. That's what I'm hoping for, anyway!

 

p.s. I changed my display name because I use the other one for a bunch of things, and I didn't want anyone I know who doesn't know about what I am going through to know, even though there is such a small chance of that. Sad but true. I don't know how y'all that put your real name and pictures out there have the balls. I do not have those balls, but I sure wish I did.

The IB started right away for me and is still going! So far the worst was a week ago, but I can tell it is not over so maybe I will have the thrill of it getting even worse! I have a derm appt tomorrow, so hoping she will say something that at least makes me feel better about how blah I am right now. Even before the Accutane everything on my face likes to get angry and turn into a cyst. I still have quite a lot of crap under the surface, and I am NOT looking forward to all of it coming out.

Hope you are having a better day than I!

Day 25

well skin is very sensitive, used a biore strip and now I am missing a layer of skin on my nose! blacking out often so bruised up from the falls. Very sick to my stomach all the time, lashes and hair are thinning out, and the break outs are non-stop.

Day 60

My joint pain is nearly unbearable at this point, I have a hard time walking when I first wake up because my ankles are so swollen. My knuckles are also very swollen and painful. Headaches are a daily and my skin looks awful.

"what happened to your skin" was the nice comment of the day today. keeping my head up and reminding myself it gets worse before it gets better.
