Sad Day

K bad news guys. Ah... k well here is what happened. I went t the dermatologist but had to go to a different person because the girl I normally go to was sick. I took the urine test and everything and then when he looked at my face he said he didn't think I should go on accutane. I admit, my skin looks pretty good today but this isn't how it usually looks! It was just one of those random good days you know? And it made me kind of mad because he hasn't seen what my face usually looks like (lik

Blood Test, Fasting?

I have my appointment to get accutane tommorow so I'm going to also have my blood test. Do I need to not eat for 12 hours or something? She never told me anything so I'm not sure. My appointment is at 1:20 tommorow (if that is helpful haha) So.... Yup!

Please Answer!

2 more days until my appointment!!! I got all my ipledge info in the mail today. (Like the username and password and stuff) Anyway, my question is do you get your accutane prescription on the same day as your appointment? Or do you have to wait until the pregnancy and blood tests come back? I heard the blood tests only take half an hour to process. I'm hoping I can get it the same day. Does anyone know? Like what was your experience? P.S. I have another question relating to birth control.

I bought everything. I'm ready. 3 more days....

I just got back from Target. The things I ended up getting were Purpose gentle cleanser, cetaphil moisturizing cream (I'm going to only use it at night and the regular cetaphil in the morning), aquaphor, softlips and a deep conditioning treatment for when my hair starts getting really dry. 3 more days guys!!! I am so ecstatic. I'm also really excited to stop using all the topicals creams and gels and crap! I have been using prescription topicals EVERY DAY for 3 years. I can NOT wait to get off

Okay to stop topicals?

I've noticed the past couple days that the two topicals I have been using have really been irritating my skin. I've used both Acanya, and tazorac for about a year but the past couple of days they have been causing some weird blotches on my face. Since I am starting accutane on Monday, would it be okay to stop them for the 3 days until I get the accutane? Or do you think my face would totally erupt in zits? Thanks!

Pics? Products?

So would you guys like pictures to show my progress? I'm still thinking about it. Also, I am going out to buy all the products I need in a couple days, so if someone can reply to my previous entry about which moisturizers and face washes I should use that would be great! --hAlEy(:

Is 28 days enough...?

K well good news I'm pretty sure I am starting accutane next Monday!!!! Also that scab on my face went away and now there is a tiny little red mark but I'm pretty sure it will go completely away in time. Sooo yay! haha. Anyway, I need to know if this work. So, I was reading through the ipledge booklet and it said you only have to be on birth control for 1 month before accutane not two. So my mom is going to call my derm. today and try to get an appointmemt for next Monday. Cause Monday will mar

CUT! eeeeek!

Hello my friends! I am just going to give a brief update on how things are going. I have experienced no side effects with Yaz whatsoever. Which has been great. My skin condition is about the same although Yaz has decreased my oil production a little bit. I am just ready to start accutane!! I hate that I have to be on BC for 2 months first. urgh... anyway, yesterday my sister was running past me and she cut my face with her fingernail and now I have a red cut on the side of my face that is scab

And so the journey begins...

Hey everyone! I'm brand new here. (I just joined today) I'm 15 years old, have strawberry blonde hair and blue eyes and love to hang out with friends, watch scary movies, dance and laugh. I have been suffering with acne since I was 9 years old and I have been seeing a dermatologist since age 10. I have tried so many products I lost count. I'll just go through what I have been on within the last two and 1/2 years. Okay here it goes... Benzaclin, Differin, Solydin, Doxycyclin, Aczone, Acanya, Min
