Well to start things off, today is the 6th day I have been taking amnesteem 40mg twice a day.
Growing up I always had blackheads, but when I started college is when I developed the cystic acne. I think because of it I automatically felt bad for myself and found myself unattractive. Now finally after going to different dermatologists I finally had one that told me this was my only choice, to get it rid of it all for good.
It absolutely terrified me, and I didn't want anything to happen to me. My derm assured me that I would be okay, and that her and her nurses would go above and beyond to make me feel comfortable. And so far they have just that! I don't feel ugly and they have been so great at increasing my confidence! (I also owe this to my fiance, family, and sorority sisters <3)
Finishing this first week, the biggest thing I've noticed are the SUPER dry lips and hands. It's going to be fine though. I recently gave up facebook for Lent, and I realized that it came at the right time for me. I have replaced the time I spent on facebook with spending my quiet time with God, and with this treatment I'm so happy that I have realized how much I have to cling onto him to get through. 2 Timothy 2:1-10 will be the scripture that gets me through this process. I suggest everyone to read this, I promise it will encourage you to ENDURE everything going on in your life. It is serving as my daily prayer with this process!!!!!
I'm looking forward to finishing this week and preparing for next now. I'm just happy I made it through the first 6 days!!!!!!!!
PS. On a funny note I was soooo nervous about this medicine I actually had nightmares about it before I went on it. My nightmare consisted of someone stealing my eyesight and I couldn't see my Lily Paper lantern in my bedroom anymore. People I'm a little silly.
