Day 44

Hellooo! Okay, so I promise I will start doing better on blogging more often! Right now I'm at day 44, yay! I caught an AWFUL flu and was super-sick for about a week. I haven't felt that terrible in literally YEARS. I went home to my parents' house so my mom could take care of me even! You better believe I stayed on track with my Spiro though! Just got my perscription filled a few days ago...and I'm trekking along towards month #2! Sooo, skinwise, I'm just not sure! I continue to break out on th

Day 33

Yooo! I've made it to the one month mark! Haven't written in more than a week, bad blogger! I've just been working, doing fun things, and enjoying life! On to the skin situation..things are pretty good! I think (though not positive exactly when; Spiro messed up my cycle SO bad) I'm about to get my period within the next two days and right now, my skin is WAY better than it would normally be at this time of the month. Normally my chin area would be covered with at least 5 or 6 zits, right now the

Day 23

Hey world! I'm now at day 23. Haven't written in almost a week; had friends visiting for the last 5 or 6 days. I had SO much fun with them. Skin's really clear for the most part! I have still been getting some pimples, but they are very small and heal quickly. Right now all I have is one tiny one under my lip, which you literally can't see but is a little bit sore, and a healing red spot on my lower cheek, also barely noticible. Random blackheads sometimes too, but those are easy to deal with. S

Day 17

Hey guys! Not too too much to report, skin still being a little weird. I'm still breaking out a tiny bit, but not bad at all. I got a few tiny little bumps around my eyebrow, where I had another zit that I, of course, picked at. I think they will wash away with a little exfoliation though. My new goal is to not pick AT ALL, unless there's something really horrifying looking that I can't go out in public with. Washing my face at night is the most tempting time for me, so I decided I won't even lo

Day 15..time's a-flyin!

Oh hey. It's day 15 already! It seems like the days are flyyying by, probably because I've been working a ton. Skinwise, things are pretty good, comparatively. Skin is still doing MUCH better, right now I have one zit on my forehead, one little guy on the side of my nose, and one on the side of my chin, which I think will be gone by the morning. My skin is pretty fricken dry though! It won't look it when I first wake up, but then I get out of the shower and there's some parts like look like alli

Day 13..still truckin'.

Good morning, lovers. This post won't be very long, as there's not much to update, but I'm bored so I'm still going to write. Things are getting better since I upped my dose to 100 mg. Each morning I wake up with clearer skin! I haven't had a NEW pimple since about 2 days ago. The ones that I did have are very quickly drying up and the marks are fading. yay! Skin looks the best today since I started the meds and I think things are only going to get better from here. I'm a little worried about an

Day 12/dose-increase to 100mg

Hey people! Day 12 here. I doubled my dose of Spiro, so it's now at 100 mg. I was going to go from 50 to 75 to 100, but last night when I was about to take only 50 (I took the full 100 the night before) I thought, "Don't you want to clear up as quick as possible? Don't be a wuss!" So I just took the 100. Oh well, I'll just live through the side effects if they get bad! Skin-wise, nothing too major has changed. I have about 3 or 4 almost-healed, sexy little scabby things, a weird cyst-like thing

Day 11

Good morning people!! It is nowww...day 11. Things are going well! I continue to clear up; right now I have about 6 healed zits that are about to fall off completely once I shower. I woke up with 3 whiteheads, but I picked a little last night and the zits I picked stuck around because of it, I think. But, they are pretty minor. I'd say I only have 2 noticible spots, one cheek and one chin...not too bad compared to the 20 I had about 3 days ago. Yay! I'm going to see some friends' AWESOME band

Day 9..thank god!

Good morning! It's day 9 currently, and all I can say is...thank GOD! I made it through my IB! Truthfully though, that was awwwful. From day 6-8 I had THE WORST skin I've had since before I went on Accutane! It was like, new zits every hour. At one point, my forehead was completely bumpy, I had about 7 or 8 on my left cheek, about 5 or 6 on my other cheek, and about 6 on my chin. Talk about gross. Zits of all sorts too! I felt like total crap the last couple days, but thankfully if I part my hai

IB??

Yoooo! Day 7 has arrived...one week. woohoo! Not too much to report here...besides the fact that my skin SUCKS right now. Most definitely entering the IB zone, how terrible. My skin is, what I can call, weird. I'm really broken out on the right side of my face, especially my chin and lower cheek. They're sort of healing but there's new ones forming. It's just basically gross and scaly with a few tiny whiteheads that are too deep to mess with thrown in the mix. FOUL. I'm also getting little clogg

Day 6

Hellllo all! (assuming someone is even reading this) Today is day number 6...I think? I thought I posted yesterday but now I can't seem to find the entry. Not sure if I'm just confused or if I have no idea how to work this site yet..whatever. Day 6 it is! Not much new to discuss...right now my forehead and cheeks are clear, save for the 2 tiny whiteheads I woke up with. Fortunately, they were the kind that just go away when you wash your face. My chin, on the other hand, is another story. I ha

excited to try something new...spiro!

Hello all! Like many of you, I have spent a lot of time on these boards trying to figure out just what the heck to do when it comes to acne. I feel like I've learned a ton from this site over the years, so I decided to start my own blog to try to help others too! I'll start by introducing myself and my skin. I am a 24 year old woman who has been suffering from varying levels of acne since I was about 13. I can remember getting my first acne in 8th grade; I don't think it really had much
