My name is Jori, I am 23-years-old, and I have suffered from acne since the tender age of eight. The confidence level I have and the level I should have are on two completely different levels because of my blemishes.
Here pretty soon, I will be starting Accutane. I tried taking this when I was eighteen, but because I saw signs of depression, I discontinued treatment. I decided I wanted to start this again because it's the only thing that remotely worked for my cystic acne. This time, I am taking an anti-depressant along side the Accutane, in hopes of counter-acting those signs.
I have been seeing my doctor as well as the derm to get everything lined out the passed couple months, and I believe @ my next appointment on the 19th, I will be able to get started.
All I have ever wanted for myself was clear, beautiful skin, much like everyone else I come across. I just hope I don't have discontinue again. If that happens, I'll be crushed.
Stay tuned for the upcoming entries!
