I have hope! (3rd day)




I am OFFICIALLY on accutane! Just about 35 days ago I got the best news ever. . .I can start accutane :shhh:

Today is actually my 3rd day and I'm already getting impatient.

I have had acne for over 2 years and i can honestly say its ruined my life. It's taken away so much of my confidence and has made me the photographer instead of being in pictures. I have no desire to show my huge red face to all of facebook. I hate acne so much! it's like frikken targets on your face! it sucks, sucks, sucks! Anyway, like the title says, i have hope!

I am so excited for the end result!:shhh:

i have tried: tazorac, retin-a, benzaclin, tetracycline, yada yada yada..all to no prevail.

fortunately, i can say that tazorac helped a lot but still wasn't enough. It did clear the monsters on my cheeks but did nothing for my forehead and some more pimples have invited themselves back on to my cheeks. i can't tell you how frustrating it is to go through every topical for 5 or whatever weeks and expect greatness to only get hurt red skin.

Anyway, i am very hopeful in accutane and ridding my face of the ugliness.

I'm about to take my 3rd pill tonight! Im only on 40 g for the start and then i should be bumped up to more later.

Does anyone know when i should expect dryness? Any success stories? Any help would be nice!

Thank you! ♥ Lu
