RECAP! I HAVE FINISHED AND I'M CLEAR. I know I haven't posted on here in a while but it's because I've been extremely busy on my holidays. sorry!

Dosage throughout treatment: Month 1 - 30mg Month 2 - 30mg Month 3 - 30mg Month 4 - 30mg Month 5 - 30mg Month 6 - 40mg Originally, I was only supposed to be on treatment for 4 months, but Unfortunately I was n

Week 15

DON'T READ THIS IF YOU'RE A SENSITIVE HUMAN. SWEARING AND SHIT. Week 15 Sorry for not really being on here too much, I think you'll understand when I say that I've been feeling like fucking utter shit. Right... where do I start... First of all, let me tell you about the current acne presence on my body: BADBOY MOTHERFUCKING CYSTS OR BOILS EVERYWHERE (slight overexaggeration) !! You must be thinking, "Roaccutane has sent this guy crazy", in all trueness, it probably has

Week 13

Week 13 So it's my 13th week and I think I might be rid of my dreadful acne, but what's left is far worse. I no longer get 10 pimples every morning which is heaven for me, I can now go to college without worrying about that massive cyst on my cheek... although I do have a few pimples here and there around my body, it is NOTHING like how it used to be, I can live like this but before, It was horrible and I honestly do feel sorry for everyone who has or been through severe acne like me

Week 9

Week 9 It's late and I'm tired, This will not be long. A lot has happened since the last time I posted, I've been to my derm and he just told me that It's looking good and prescribed me with 10 weeks of Roaccutane at 30mg, I was pretty pissed off leaving the hospital because he didn't listen to me at all, I wanted to vent and talk to him about what was going on but I was literally in his room for about 5 minutes, then to top it all off, the nurse who took my blood was a f**king arse.

2 Months

2 Months I can't even believe it's been a whole 8 weeks since I started this drug. I still have those cysts on the back of my neck, they are so persistent, it's unreal! They have gone up and down in swelling and soreness for about a week now and they're getting pretty boring, my neck is so sore that I've been finding it hard to sleep, although today it feels so much better, think I might actually get a good nights sleep. :/ Anyway my face is pretty much clear, full of all sorts of

Week 7

Week 7 Ok so it's week 7 and things are just constantly improving, I want to post pictures up so I can show you just how much progress I have made but I really am afraid incase anybody I know sees, silly I know... But it's how I feel Breaking out Ok so I went swimming last week with my friends, and I know that chlorine can not be the best thing for your skin while on Roaccutane, infact it may be on of the worst. the pool I went to has a reputation of having a large am

Week 6

Week 6 Ugh.... I hate skin. I'm back again for all who missed me.... Not many changes to post this week, so I'm going to keep it short and sweet. My overall skin condition has improved but I do feel as though this is constant, My back feels really smooth though... so I hope this will happen to my face because it feels extremely soft and smooth. My face is getting better, at the minute I have no cysts which is really something for me, Going from a face full of them to literally zero.

Week 5

Week 5 *Some kind of witty introduction here* Well it's week 5 and time is just flying by... I thought the time would've dragged being on Roaccutane but it really has went quite quick. My skin.... well... I think i must be undergoing the "purging" process because wow... my skin looks horrendous right now, although my larger acne has pretty much cleared away (as in cysts and other larger acne, yeah.), blackheads are coming out just about every pore in my body... seriously though; my sk

1 Month

1 Month So it's been a month... well near enough for me and I'm feeling good, apart from a few annoying cysts on the back of my neck. My face is looking pretty clear except for some redness and scarring, two cysts appeared on the back of my neck though.. I am constantly checking my face for any new activity, Roaccutane makes me really paranoid because it gives me doubts if a single pimple pops up, I don't know why. I'm not even sure anyone reads this but hopefully future R

Week 3

Week 3 So it's week three and i have some GREAT news... I'm practically 80% clear..... I can't even believe it myself, but i will not be posting pictures of myself until the end of my treatment, I'll throw a video up of my face day to day (if it's possible ) My face is looking great, I've had plenty of compliments thrown at me, my family and friends say I'm brimming with confidence, i went for a meal with 30 of my family and there was a discussion about my skin, even though it was m

Week 2

Week 2 So it's week 2 and if anyone has actually been reading my blogs then welcome back, and if you're new.. hi! I was actually supposed to be updating my blog on Tuesday but when i got in from college i went straight to bed, I woke up after about 2 hours and BAM i was throwing up everywhere, hah! It had nothing to do with Roaccutane by the way, There was a bug going round my house and everyone in my home was either asleep or in the bathroom vomiting. I had to skip taking my dose fo

Week 1

Week one It's been a week already... wow, time is flying by, must be another side effect then. Ha. I've been alright though, I'm not even sure what to say because i don't feel as though i've had any "bad enough to report and cry to you about it side effects" But.... i have been experiencing some joint and muscle pain, it's like a stretchy relaxy feeling though... feels nice to stretch it out... lol? I have noticed that my entire body isn't producing as much oil as it was, it's becoming

Day 1 + Introduction

Introducing me Before I get started on documenting my journey with Roaccutane, I just wanted to take a bit of time to talk about myself. I've suffered with acne for about 5 years now and it has progressively got worse and worse, I've been to see my GP multiple times about my condition. I've been on just about every treatment at my GP's disposal and eventually a month ago, I ticked all the boxes to be referred to a dermatologist. Thank God! On my visit to my GP, he just told me to choose fro
