Day 110

Sunday July 10th, Day 110. Skin has cleared up nicely. Seems there is no more active acne appearing, and this is a great feeling as I really feel that i'm slowly gaining my confidence back. Going to Ulta tomorrow to find a good tinted moisturizer that can even up my complexion, provide sunblock and cover up any red marks.

Day 89

Monday, June 20th. Day 89 of course 2. Skin has significantly cleared up, only a couple bumps appearing here and there, but I know it's the accutane "pushing out" whatever's remaining. Just redness (hyper pigmentation) to deal with, trying to find some type of tinting lotion that can even out my complex. Classes start in a week! Excited. I really pray I'm confident and have clear skin by the time I move to Atlanta to attend college.. Life's hard, but you gotta keep your head up and push through it! I Still miss her, and wish that I could be there and be with her, but there's been too many obstacles that have landed in my path of life that I've chosen to deal with now. 17 & 18 were real difficult ages for me, my skin playing a big part of it, I can only hope 19 is amazing for me. And I pray that I won't ever have to worry about my skin every minute of the day like I do now. Tomorrow morning im going to the pharmacy to re-up on accutane. Starting month 4. I'll update in a week or 2 but for now, got work to do!

Day 34

Day 34 on my Second Course. Im Dealing ok with the side effects because i'm used to them from my first course. still at 80mg a day, and it makes me nervous cause I really have no idea what 2 years of this medicine could possibly be doing to me health wise. I pray that this is the final time I have to take Accutane, and pray it does the job. If it doesn't, I don't know whats going to happen with my life. I don't know how I continue day to day living in this constant depression and fear with this "disease" called acne. I've cut myself off from friends for months, and have wasted so much time of my young life just laying around pumping myself with this med hoping this will all go away for good. Still staying strong with any faith I have left in myself. Happy Easter.
