Not sure if it's the Accutane or something else, but I feel so empty emotionally right now. Just gotta climb out of this slump, I guess.

Still feeling quite sad, but there's a reason behind it that isn't Accutane! Girls, man. :-(

Also, school's starting tomorrow so I looked through pictures from the summer. Bad freaking idea. How the frick does THIS happen in a two month period?

Neosporin did something weird (but insanely wonderful). I slathered it on bad spots two days ago and watched a movie, when the movie was over I checked my face... Almost all gunk had been pushed out of the places I put it at, and I wiped my face gently with a washcloth... All dried chunks of pus that were there before were gone. :o Is this normal?!

I've had a few small whiteheads pop up (5-6 tiny ones a day), a monster on my nose that popped up 2 days ago but is fine now. I'm still very dry but working to combat it! A ton of my swelling has gone down, and my friends/family have reassured that by pointing it out!

Alas, I've been asked what happened to my face 4 times today at school but that phase will be over before I know it! Things are definitely looking up. :)

I feel ya when it comes to girls! I felt the same (and still do). However my "sadnesses" is almost gone. Luckily I start school in a month and am beginning to clear now.

remember, it gets worse before it gets to its best.



My first and some of my second month on accutane were during the end of the school year. Every said "my face got way worse". Can't wait to go back in a month and hear "your face is almost clear"! And I promise you'll be able to experience the same soon!

I looked in the mirror today and there was noticeably less swelling in my cheek, it was awesome! Haha things seem to be looking up already!

I wonder if a higher dose brings out the IB quicker/stronger? Or maybe this has just been a good past week!

Today marks a month on Accutane!

I get whiteheads still but not as often (or big). PUT NEOSPORIN ON WHITEHEADS, it helps! I get headaches every once and a while but not very often. Dandruff and itchy scalp is thankfully gone! Skin still gets drier than the Sahara, but lotion helps it out. I drink so much water...

Anyways, here's a pic taken two minutes ago.image.jpg

Thanks! The way I see it, being upset about how sucky my skin will only piss
me off, so it's better to try not to worry.

And it helps me personally to joke around about it, I've convinced one person I had leprosy... Maybe I can get someone to think I have Ebola.

Hope your course goes well too. :-)

Where did you buy the shirt you're wearing on the very first picture on page 1? It's pretty cool.

My sister actually made it! :)

Skin is doing well, but I went to the doctor's office today and they're having me tested for cancer. A little scared but I think I'll be fine!

I hope you don't mind me asking, but why do they think you have cancer?

A lymph node on my neck has been swollen for 3-4 months, the doctor was worried because swelling is supposed to go down within a couple weeks. It's about the size of a grape, too! I think it'll end up being nothing, but the doctors are having me tested for it either way.

 Oh I see. I'm sure you will be fine, my lymph nodes get swollen all the time too, but I don't think they ever lasted 3-4 months and they weren't huge either, more like the size of a pea. But still I'm sure once in a while they can get as swollen as yours and last for a long time too. Anyway good luck!

I think you are just adorable!  I can tell your personality is a positive and hilarious one!  It will serve you well in life when things just don't go right.  Your optimism is definitely an inspiration to me as i struggle with my worsening acne.

 

Here's to hoping everything goes well with your tests.

Tests results came back, and I do NOT have cancer! I'll have to get my swollen lymph node surgically removed, but it's not cancer so YAAA!

About halfway through month 2 now, and it appears a miracle has happened. LOOK AT MY SKIN. It's not swollen, I've had maybe 2-3 pimples come up in the past 5 days. Nothing hurts, and I feel as smooth as a baby's bottom! The biggest problem is redness, but as always that takes time. :)

Here's a pic, I FEEL SO GREAT

That's awesome dude! And your skin looks great, I don't see any actives and it looks very smooth. The only thing that's left is the redness and that will go away eventually.
