Dianette :/

Hi, i havent posted in a while but i am on month 7 day 4 of dianette and well i have some doubts now. I'm going to be switching to Yasmin next three months and well I don't know. I feel a bit confused. I mean I dont get many spots but I got a spot under my skin on my chin that feels like a lump! It has gone down considerably but it doesn't feel it should be happening at this point. Then I got a spot on my forehead that is not going down but looks red. Anyway! I got a positive though.

It's Been A While...

Okay it's definitely been a couple of weeks since I have been on here but I have finally hit month 6 third day!!!!!! Changes, you ask? Hmmm, well, my face is now smooth. i get the odd little spot and i mean ridiculously little and the scarring is slowly beginning to lighten. I can wear make up, go out and feel pretty again but i wish that the scarring would disappear. i'm still on the vitamins, i am very careful with make up but i am beginning to feel happier in my skin. I can han

On The Pull...i Mean Pill :(

I am finally on month 5 - day 12? anyway my point is i had a pus spot on my chin two days ago and i did not take this for a good sign. why am i getting chin spots again?! little pus ones and just the one big one. I dont like it. i have stopped doing my herbal face mask but i do take my vitamins regularly and occasionally pop on my cream. i don't know why that happened but it bummed me out. on the other hand it's supposed to be clearing up but my scarring still upse

On A Break From Everything

i've finished month four and i'm three days away from month five. dianette is beginning to kick in more but i'm also aware that i'm getting the odd little spot. i am surprised i made it to month five and survived! i was reflecting over how crap i used to feel and how now when i look in the mirror i feel more confident, more accepting. it's so difficult to do when you're at that stage but i feel like it's made me appreciate more than just looks. the scarring is slowly going down t

Maybe There's A Miracle In Dianette?!

so it's been a while. i have some progress... tomorrow is my last day on the pill for month four! it's been so quick! anyway - what i wanted to say was those little spots died down eventually and my face is slowly beginning to clear up! i am happier than i have been - a bit more confident and my birthday is less than two weeks and i dont think i'll be that paranoid about the pictures! hallelujah! aside from the chin spot i got which i'm scared about because i think i feel another

Taken A Step Back?

So i'm not sure what to write - i still have those spots one on my cheek that has died down, the other on the side which has gone down but the other one on the other cheek hurts ! it's going down don't get me wrong but i really am annoyed. i guess i was having a fugly day. i was trying hard not to feel it but i wasnt getting any new spots and suddenly i am. hurting ones. i'm back at work in a day and i dont really want to go in with new scars. anyway i started putting on my sulphur soa

Damn You Dalacin T Lotion.

So I made it to Month 4 Week 2 Day 2 of the Dianette - so i think i might have taken two steps back with getting the lotion. I used it and i felt like it was producing more oil for my skin and i broke out in some spots that were red lumps that HURT. i was so annoyed and upset because until then my skin had a smooth skin look and the only issue was the stupid scarring. THIS MADE ME MAD. I stopped using it went back to my normal routine and my skin has calmed down now but i feel like i w

Hmmm....normal Or Not Normal...

So i have finally started month 4 of dianette. it puts me at month 4 day 5 ! i was happier with my skin it beginning to calm down and give me smoother skin. i can see the flaws beginning to calm down. my problem began when i was prescribed Dalacin T Lotion - or Clendamycin lotion whichever it's called. now i did read that it could make skin slightly red as skin adjusts but how long is that supposed to last? i got mini spots that hurt where i never had any before and it is slightly

The Doctor Is Not In The House!

So i have a bone to pick with my doctor!!!! OH MY GOD! So i went to speak to him and he was like you can be on dianette for up to two years! the other doctor had only said six months then he said that he would give me a cream to help with the scaring and since that it was only majority scarring i was not in the last stages of acne..wicked news. so i got re prescribed dianette - i got a new cream it was time to double tackle and kick butt on the acne front ! errrr....nooo.

Just A Little Bit Stressed

okay so it's my second day on the break of month 3 on dianette and i am a little bit worried about getting any more soaps. i mean touch wood so far i am okay but i began to panic when two days ago suddenly i had two spots pop up on my NECK! Neck! why there of all places? I hadn't had a spot there and now i had two! one was little but the other was massive! i am hoping it goes down soon! anyway on my hunt to help my blemishes go down i have now found out about Black Sea Sulpher Soap ! i a

Could It Be...?!?!?!?!?

So i have two days left before i go on the break for month 3. Three months of dianette. hmmm.... so i need to book a doctors appointment and make sure i get the next set but what about so far? it has been a roller coaster ride of emotions and disasters! From month one where i was breaking out like i had massive pustules on my face and giant cyst like acne that was getting so bad i thought it would never get better to month two where the spots began to calm down and

Trying To Still Keep The Faith !

so it is officially month 3 which makes it week 10 and 5 days so almost two weeks into month 3. i'm having good days and really bad days in the way i perceive myself. i am beginning to have a calmer looking face but the scars are too much for me - they are dark and they stand out and i hate that they are there. i want it to be clear - i want it to be gone but i know it cant just disappear overnight. so i am stuck waiting for time to be the greatest healer when all i want to do is

Keeping The Faith

Okay so i finally made it to Month 3 of Dianette which i feel is about bloody time! I started it four days ago so that makes it Week 9 Day 4! What have i noticed? my face is looking smoother. It doesnt have massive bumps on it all over ! i did however, for the better part of week have a huge lump on the corner of my chin and one on my cheek. it was ridiculously inflamed and it hurt but i held on and it's finally gone down leaving me with dry skin and a dark scar. whoo... anyway, i try

Feeling Like Crap

so the last couple of days have not been good. I mean I thought they were but I am not happy. I'm making myself unhappy by looking at pictures of when i was truly clear skinned and so much more confident! What a difference a whole load of scarring and acne does...happy days!!! anyway, I look at these photos and i get jealous of myself! How bizarre is that?!?! I long for the days when I was that person who didnt have to worry about make up or anything to do with my face. I could wake up

Dianette End Of Second Month

i have finally finished my second packet of dianette and am on the seven day break. It's day one of the break - not sure what to expect but i do not want to break out There has been a slight improvement in my acne. Slight i say and i mean. one side of my cheek is shrinking - i did have a massive bump on it two days ago but it is now going down and disappearing and there is a circular area of dark marking and then on my other cheek it was calm but it has become slightly bumpy and red. N

Nostalgia - A Double Edged Sword.

I'm in the middle of looking through my old photos when clearly i had more confidence with my clear skin. Even though I know my skin is slowly getting better I am not impressed with it at all. I think, at times, I am harsh on myself but also mainly impatient. It's nearly the end of my second packet of dianette. I've got two days left and then i got the seven day break. I have smaller spots but on my cheek there is a massive lump growing! Not good at all! I was kind of hoping they would star

Back To Work Blues

I am not going to lie - i woke up today thinking oh yeah lets wear all this make up i bought for my first day back to work and then half way through i took it all off and decided i didnt need all of that. i stuck to a hint of it with my moisturizer and left it at that! i can't risk clogging my skin up when it's finally making a bit of progress. I mean yeah,i can't wait for the day the dianette gives me back my smooth skin and i can wear whatever i want (within reason of course) but in the meanwh

Comme Ci Comme Ca

I'm in a really in between mood about my acne today. i know i'm seeing slight differences everyday and that my skin is slowly but surely beginning to make a minute bit of change everyday for the better but sometimes i still think urgh! then again it's progress so i'm not letting myself feel down. as of today i have about two or three spots, two by my cheek and one on my chin - i hate chin ones - like it's not scarred enough already. anyway i have also nearly come to the end of week 6

A Little Bit Of Positive Thinking

I'm going into town today - a surprise outing for myself that I had to convinced self to do but I am out and guess what - it's a no make up on face outing ! Really ! I put my eye makeup on and I put on my la Roche posay effaclar creme and that's it ! I am a little aware of it but I think I'm doing my skin a favour rather than clogging it with make up - which I am sure is the reason for my mini break out ! Also I am going to look into getting more or this effaclar range ! I've quit putting a

Hanging Under The Clouds Today

So I'm finding that my mood is really fluctuating these days. I'm not happy. I literally have to pull myself out of my bad mood but I think some of it has to do with the fact that I'm starting work in a couple of days and I have to go back in with this face. The funny thing is, when I was at work it was way worse than it is now! I mean now I have only little bumps and redness but then there is the scarring. That's what it is. The scarring. Which yeah, is my fault but it doe

Tentatively Joining The World Again

So as I am on holidays I have refrained from going out anywhere ! I put off meeting many of my friends cancelled any thing that I wanted to do and I have focused on trying to work on my skin and hiding in the meanwhile ... Today however I am forcing myself to leave the house ! I am going out to eat with friends and the main thing I know why I am going is because they have seen me with my newly procured acne. Im not sure why that helps but it does! Anyway ! I dressed up a bit and then came f

The Good, The Bad And The Damn Right Ugly

I started taking Dianette exactly five weeks ago. I went to the doctor two months ago and told him of my lack of self esteem and borderline depression over my skin suddenly turning into the most hideous and unsightly look that was destroying my self confidence. I had been on oxytetracycline for two years previously and it had been a year but suddenly after having clear skin for so long I was breaking out with those cystic type acne that was so huge and always by my chin that it seemed
