First month with pictures

Week 1 No significant changes I kept waiting for the dreaded dry lips and dry skin but nothing I was so ready to see the changes I read about like I was waiting to be miserable and was excited about it lol   Week 2 Throat was kinda a sore when I woke up a couple of times and my skin felt tight along with my lips but no peeling and my face had improved a bit  Week 3 Holy crap! My skin tingled and my lips peeled and burned but my pores had shrunk and If a bump popped up it was gone within a couple days and the nodular acne on my neck that were not visible to the eye were shrinking because they felt huge before! weird thing I got so bumps behind my ears kinda cystic but they were gone by end of week.. Week 4  Vaseline saved my lips thank gawd! And my Hair doesn't need to be washed my skin has been a little flakey but can still wear makeup even though I try not too... my next appointment is February 14th ha go figure  I will make a seperate blog on products I have been using maybe that's thed reason my skin has not dryer out as bad as other stories I read worst part was week 3 with my lips being dry and it doesn't help that I pick at things

First visit along with first week...

So I had my first visit in December where we decided I should take the isotretinoin train! But obviously you don't get your meds right away which I didn't know at the time. So I had to give a urine sample and did blood work urine test came back negative so yay not pregnant..but I did have an abortion ( no judging here to help everyone ) back in October so I got a call a couple days later saying the blood test came back positive and my heart dropped! But I knew there was no way so we waited a couple of weeks and I went back in for another blood test which came back negative ( so I had lingering hormones in my system) after that I went back in to get my prescription on January 14th AGAIN Isotretinoin was so hard for me to get because after I had the pregnancy scare ( because you will NOT be prescribed it if you are ) I went to Sam's Club to pick up my script ( wayyy cheaper then other pharmacies) and forgot I had to do register with Ipledge!! I was about to cry because I didn't know how to log in I had no instructions from anyone I was so ready to start and another rock in my way *sigh* so anyway I called the Ipledge number to register went online did the questions and FINALLY was able to get my prescription BTW you have to answer the form of contraception questions the same everytime because you will be doing this everytime before you pick up your meds.....

Intro!

I am 28 years old caucasian female from Georgia! Suffered with acne on and off since I was 24!!  I started getting nodular painful cystic bumps on my neck and no matter what I tried nothing worked I would do all types of facials treatments natrual remedies and nothing I would think my face was clearing up and BAM! I would wake up and be flared up I have combination skin and was terrified of sunscreen and moisturizer because on top of combo skin I have sensitive skin so everything would burn or break me out so I finally decided to see a dermatologist  paying out of pocket because hey after the 1000's i have spent on everything else that hasn't worked what do i have to lose! So I have started Isotretinoin ( accutane )
