I wish I had started charting my progress in a blog to begin with, but oh well. I'll be writing in here to chart progress, though lately there hasn't been much to report at all - hence the relatively empty log, which will hereby be abandoned.
Not much to say, except that I have about 2 weeks left on Accutane, probably less. I'm going through pills pretty quickly and the end is looming very, very near. Of course I'm intimidated by this, as I've said, but I haven't gotten around to calling my dermatologist about extending my course yet.
I am not 100% clear at this point. I do still get random pimples, and I still have those ever-present lurkers. Hopefully I'm allowed to stay on Accutane for an extra month to ensure that the acne doesn't return... or that if it does, it's 'normal' acne that can be treated topically, instead of these deeply embedded things I've now been getting for years.
Oh, and I'm still not on birth control (again) yet, oops. Nor am I doing anything notable with my skincare regimen; just cleansing. Which is silly, because I've gotten a bunch of good quality samples in the mail lately, including Mario Badescu.
Truth be told, it must be a damn good feeling not to 'need' this forum anymore. I'd love to get to the place where my skin's just another part of my body and not something to worry about excessively.
