Happy Easter! No new zits. Tons of red spots... so nothing has changed. Just wanted to say happy Easter to everyone.

Day 44

Hey guys! I'll bet you thought I vanished from the Earth... nope, still here and doing well. I feel so good after I started the 60mg (30 mg x2/day) I haven't had any headaches, no muscle aches, no joint aches, really no side effects at all. My face is basically clear. It feels so smooth. The huge cyst (I think I spoke of in the last blog, however I can't be completely positive) has died.... in the worst fashon ever. I won't go into details, but it was pretty gross. Glad it's go

Day 32

I am a HORRIBLE blogger. LOL The last time I checked in was day 26, and since then I have had my second blood draw, seen the derm, AND picked up my second month prescription. Second visit to the derm: It went really great. She said that my blood work looked okay. My cholesterol did go up 10 points, but that I was still in the healthy zone. She told me to start eating foods with a lot of fiber like cheerios and oatmeal and also to make sure that I am eating a lot of veggies. I was takin

Day 26

So I'm going in for my second blood draw tomorrow. Cannot wait to be done with my first month’s supply! It's so exciting! I'll tell ya; at the beginning of this month I had I believe it was 21 zits, now I have 2! It's amazing. I feel so much better about myself. I have my confidence back, which is fantastic! Now for my complaints, minor as they may be: I am dry. My face is ALWAYS dry and in need of lotion. My eye lids are dry. The inside of my elbows is forever itchy. My calves are

Day 23

Hey all! So I woke up this morning with dry flaky skin around my nostrils and an active zit on my right nostril. It's dead sexy. Other than that, no new active pimples. No headaches today, either. Yay!

Day 21

So this marks 3 weeks of accutane. My skin looks a ton better than day 1. I still feel really good. Headaches every so often, but that's pretty typical for me. I wish I could take tylenol, but whatever. Today I feel a little down. Not depressed, just down. I stay at home, which is totally new to me. I have ALWAYS either had 2 jobs or been in school full time. My husband got a great job and we moved, so I'm staying home, attempting to make an easy transition for our son. That being said

Day 20

Wow, I haven't been here in awhile. So, my skin is looking better than it has in a long time. All the cysts are basically gone! I have a few regular pimple. A lot of red spots, but hopefully those will go away too. No side effects to speak of. I actually feel great. I have been exercising a total of 2 hours a day. Usually 1.5 in the AM and .5 in the evening. After the morning workout I take a shower with soap and shampoo. After the PM w/o I take another shower but I just

Day 16

Hey there! So today has been really good aside from only having slept 5 hours last night. Oh well. I got up at 5:30. Thankfully the dry/sore throat is a thing of the past. The only thing that is persistantly dry are my lips. I have already gone through one tube and one stick of carmex, and half a tube of aquaphor (before I lost it), and I have started my second tube of carmex. As long as I keep them lubed real good, I don't have a problem... but I have bitten into an apple and tore bo

Day 15

Today has been pretty uneventful in the face front. No new enemies to speak of. I'm going to make this short because I'm exhausted from a lack of sleep last night... I'll be more thorough tomorrow.

Day 14

Hey all! I feel pretty decent today. No headaches yet. A couple small ones yesterday, but definitely bearable. I have been working out for about 1.5 hrs everyday. It's been really positive. I figure that once the accutane kicks in, my face will look good and so will my body, and I'll feel really healthy again! I was saying something like that to my husband, and he said something like I already AM pretty healthy, but it's hard to explain to someone who's never had acne how even if you

Day 13

Today has been the first morning that I don't have any new active pimples. Yay accutane! The two remaining cysts have (gross) leaked out, and when I washed my face the scabs came off. They look 10 billion times better. Yesterday I had a constant headache/migraine. If I went longer than 4 hours without ibuprofen I was in a world of hurt. As soon as I got up this morning I took Ibuprofen just in case. No headaches yet! I also haven't worked out this morning yet. I don't know if that has anyt

Day 12

Hello! Today I woke up with another active zit on my chin and the two remaining cysts came to the surface on my cheek. I got up and went for a run/bike and when I came back in the one on my chin had already dried up here's to hoping the cysts will follow suit! After being woken up two nights ago to pee, & not being able to go back to sleep, I decided that I needed to make a change in my water drinking routine. Yesterday I probably consumed about 3 liters of water before supper which w

DAy 11

Nothing new to report today on the face front except for the death of lead cyst on the right cheek. My face is definitely a lot more dry. I have a horrible taste in my mouth. I cannot even explain what it's like. Hopefully it goes away soon. Last night, I woke up at 2am to pee (because I drink a tank of water everyday so I pee constantly) and I could NOT go back to sleep. I was having a little anxiety or something. I hope that's not a side effect, because I'm super bitchy when I

Day 10

SO the first thing I have to say is I had a pretty good size pimple sprout up on my chest two days ago, well I was just washing my face/chest this evening before bed and it exploded... leaving behind a good little hole I've never had "ch-acne" before, but I guess it's from the accutane?... Now on to my face. There was a little area of blackheads on the upper end of my cheek bones that I have had for a year or so... I had grown quite used to them. Well, I woke up this morning and they're

Day 7

Okay, so my face is not lookin so hot today Right cheek: the cyst that I though was shrinking is still there, along with two other ones Left cheek: basically clear, no new zits, knock on wood! Chin: two huge zits on the left but they're drying up. Forehead: clear. My lips are pretty starved for moisture. I have to constantly apply lip crap. My eye lids are super itchy. IDK what the heck that's about. Trying everything from cortizone eo eucerine, to vaseline. Hopefull it'l

Day 6 - things change so quickly I think I may write everday!

So I literally just swallowed my 6th Clarvis pill. Yahoo!! I still don't feel a whole lot different, but I've begun noticing differences in my skin. The cyst that was on my right cheek is all but dried up! I'd say that it was the size of a quarter, but now when I touch it it feels about the size of an eraser. The left side of my face feels pretty amazing... aside from a huge pimple that spouted up yesterday and dried sometime between last night and this morning My chin, well, the right s

Day 3!!

Hey all! So I got the 30 days of accutane!! I'm currently on day 3! I haven't noticed any significant changes. My lips are a little starved for moisture, but I am a lipgloss junkie, so I dont know if it's just adjusting to changing of products. I have been a little tired, but perhaps I'm always tired? I have also been a little cranky, but my husband said I can't blame the meds for that :/ bummer! I still have the cyst on my right cheek, but it has definitely shrunk. A couple new

I was supposed to start today...

but I didn't! That's life, I suppose. It sucks... especially life with zits. My second blood draw was on Monday, my second derm appointment was this morning. I'm not pregnant and my labs are awesome, but since my derm mis-calculated the 30 day wait, I actually have to sit on my prescription until Friday when iPledge will let me answer my questions. Stupid! My face looks horrible. Not the WORST it has ever looked, but I have a cyst on my left cheek that is thinking about surfaci
