Day 129. About.
Anyway. Went to my derm, got some advice, some repeat-cautionary tips and tricks, some stuff I'm supposed to put on my face when and where it makes a wound. What with the War of "What the heck is this" and "What happened now" going on there. Got a new prescription, (that, I swear, I almost had to fight the ******* apothecary-person-lady to get because she couldn't get that there was such a thing as varying doses or that sometimes, when you take more than one pill a day, 30 DOESN'T COVER A MONTH! Maybe, JUST MAYBE, the doctor who prescribed the amount of pills knows this better, and HAD a REASON?), which was a lovely way to add some stress to my day.
Then I fled the country for a couple of days, which was nice. Though sooo warm. Don't get me wrong, I like the warm weather, it is just the fact that I have to act like a ninja. A shady person in the shadows...
My bmi is dipping to 15, and I know, I know. But eating when you are not hungry is hard. Anyway, the derm said the pains I have been having probably is because I am too slim, because of the percentage of what things are to one another in my body - I don't know what I'm saying. So, it might be that a lower dose actually is my full dose. Therefore, averaging on 30 mg a day, and taking it slow. Probably will keep going till the end of summer.
Eyes are still sore, and very dry in the morning. (Meaning, they generally are, but wow, waking up in the Sahara desert.)
Joint/muscle/bone pain, been reduced after going way down on doses for a while.
Rashes, dry skin, cracking, becoming used to it, it is my skin now.
Lips, getting a freakishly long smile due to my lips cracking open on each side every time I wake up and yawn in the morning. Peeling, bloody scabs.
Acne, creeping up on my shoulder. One, it is disconcerting.
Mood, it won't tell me. It is possibly inventing a new one. "Accumood; available as a complimentary offer when buying accutane of any and all kinds. Don't wait, get yours today."
Other commercials: "Want a tan this summer? Get the 'tane instead! Nice and pink, aaall summer," and "That moisturizer getting too rich for you? Try accutane!" Aaaah, it's a good thing I'm not in PR.
Also, I have a hat. And it is cool.
