Somewhere in Month Two...

I'm officiallly off the prednisone now, which is a good thing since that drug can cause a myriad of problems too. I got a couple of cysts within the last week. One right at the base of my chin and one at the corner of my mouth. They seem to be healing/reducing in size much quicker than before-maybe since the prednisone is still in my system... overall, my skin looks fabulous. I honestly can say it has been years since I could apply such little makeup. Still trying to be realistic but this sure

Clear!!

Today felt so good that I have to write about it-though I am certain it will not last. The predisone did a number on my face and made it beautifully clear! The redness is G.O.N.E. I still have a small area on the left of my chin. I wore very little make-up this morning to church and it felt SO good. I know that it will all come back after I stop the prednisone but just for a day it felt great. On the down side, my hair is falling out like gangbusters. If this continues, I will be bald and I a

1 month update

Well, its time for an entry. I came back from PA so exhausted and had so much to do to catch. On top of that my mother-in-law was here visiting another week... I made it to the one-month mark. I have had no excessive dryness and my lips are not even remotely chapped. Though I use Aquaphor many times a day to prevent it. My face looks more smooth than it has in years! Except where I have active/healing cysts, of course. My husband mentions to me often that he cannot believe how smooth my

STRESSSS

Well, it has been a few days since I have written. My mom got really ill (bacterial infection in her blood) and I flew to Pittsburgh and back in 5 days. As per the accutane experience, I'm feeling a little tired but perhaps that could be the stress of my mom being so sick... But my face, OH MY WORD!!! It is awful! I get new cysts everyday. Mostly around my mouth and chin. Many look like they are several that have joined together. I canNOT even pretend to try to cover them with make-u
