Life Turning Decisions

Day 52

Healing blemishes but nothing active. I’m getting to the point where I don’t have a fear of waking up and seeing a new atrocity on my face. I’m also not as red as past days, probably because of cut a large amount of vitamin A from my diet.

I took a training class today about decision making. While I didn’t bring up my skin, deciding to take harsh medication which led to breakouts, which led to nothing working, which led me taking Accutane was a major decision. The facilitator spoke about the need to balance toughness, control, hesitation, social, optimizing, and intuition.

While I did balance these factors when choosing Accutane I didn’t consider the consequences of my actions before I took the harsh medication my doctor recommended. All I was interested in was having clear skin that I didn’t think about consequences of that decision. I also didn’t consult my love ones before making the decision or listen to my intuition. The lack of these factors leads me to believe that my skin issues are result of bad decision making. If I had gone through an appropriate and adequate process I might have been able to avoid the hell that is acne.

Side effects: Chapped lips and slightly itchy skin
