It's almost summer and it looks like along with the beauty of no school and sunshine, I'm going back on accutane for the second time. In a way I feel kind of elated because accutane is the only thing I've ever used that actually worked and gave satisfaction. I mean there's this point of rock bottom where you just want to get over this stupid battle. Acne should just be a minuscule bump in my teenage life, not something I think about and dwell on everyday. So yes I'm excited for accutane, I'm ready to be confident.
My dermatologist has me still using epiduo for the time being, because I'm not going on accutane until the first week of June, you know blood and pregnancy tests have to be done first. I'm going on a really low dose for only 3 months which I'm really excited about, hopefully this time around won't be quite as brutal. I'm interested to see if I have the same side affects, and also I'm glad I know what to expect. My doc said to up the water everyday and of course LOTION and chapstick are freakin life savers when it comes to accutane. I look forward to going on accutane again and chronicling my 2nd journey. I'll see you there.
