lit's been a while!

hey friends! sorry it has been so long since my last entry, not that you all have missed this pathetic blog so terribly much, but for the one or two ppl who like to read...i apologize. i was visiting the smoky mountains with my fiance and his family...it was less than spectacular! the transmission went out the last day of our stay...so we coasted down a mountain, then reversed up another. we were stranded (in my personal hell) for another 4 days!!! we rented a 1992, 15 passenger van (with no a

ugh

i feel gross today. ive got a total of 6 active zits and this nasty bumpy texture to my face...im just covered in itty bitty zits, yuck! i put lotion on to help my makeup go on better but it just makes my face appear greasy. my hair is dry but i just hate skipping a day of washing it. its hard because my scalp is itchy so i want to use head and shoulders but i know by washing it im drying it further... but i just never feel clean unless my hair is freshly washed. last night i got ext

update

hey hey! so i just got back from the lake and NO SUNBURN!!! i was so worried that i would fry and be miserable, dry, flaky and peeling...but i have none of that!! i put on 85spf twice a day for the first two days and 30spf on the third. i got a tan but im not nearly as dark as i usually am after a long weekend at the lake. surprising! in the zit department: overall my skin is better. my pores are not as enlarged and my skin isnt oily. i have maybe 3 new pimples but these are the first

is this the IB???

hello all! this is day 11 of my accutane (clavaris) regimen. things are going as well as can be expected i suppose...my skin is definately not worse but definately different from the way to was before i started isotretinoin. my face has sort of an overall bumpy texture; there are just little tiny pimples all over my cheeks and jawline. i am thankful that these little friends arent cysts but its still not very pretty. the pores on my faec are enlarged, even on my forehead where im usually fi

update!

Day 8: ok soooo its been a while...SRY! im afraid of posting this report...i dont want to jinx myself and wakeup covered in cysts! but, so far, sooooooo good! i dont know if its because ive been on my period this last week or if the accutane is really working this quickly and this effectively. the only real downer to this drug is the headaches. i have one everyday without fail. it just feels like there is so much pressure in my brain, behind my eyes and in my ears; the headaches really scare m

accutane taking affect...

first off...thanks for the happy comments!!!! im so excited and anxious to tell anyone who will listen! im still walking on air and flaunting a relentless smile! in the skin department: the acne i had before starting accutane seems to have tried up! ive had probably 3 new zits but they come and go within a day! im definately not as oily which is also a plus and makes my makeup look tons better! the only negative side-effects so far are the headaches! they come daily; theyre not the worst in the

breaking out and p.m.s.ing!

the last two days my skin has been oily, bumpy and i got a few new cysts on my jawline...ugh!! i am attributing this breakout to my starting my period in two days. my skin always gets its worst about a week about before my cycle starts. this go around tho i have had the worst mood swings; ive been so irritable and my poor boyfiend has definately gotten the brunt of it. i actually cant wait until i start my period; everytime i do my mood evens out and my skin calms down. i messed with this
