Day 17.

40mg Claravis.

So my mom threatened to take me off accutane today. why? because i had a BAD anxiety attack today. i'm thinking it's nerves because i have my first day of college tomorrow & the AC went out in our house.. and if you know Nebraska you know how HUMID it is! :( so i'm thinking the heat def had a big role. but i seriously cried for like an hour straight.. over anything. so idk if it's the accutane i don't think that would effect me this soon?? but idk everyones different. so she's gonna watch me the next few days.. she said if it happens again we're gonna take to my Dermatologist. So i'm hoping it's just nerves about tomorrow.

I've also been getting bloody noses! :) Gah! With dryness just around my nose. very dry at night. but i put some ceptaphil ultra hydrating lotion and it's gone. BLACKHEADS EVERYWHERE ON MY NOSE! omgosh! yuck. never had so many. lips are starting to get like idk how to describe it like a thin layer that comes off after i wash it. but they don't feel like chapped. now if i don't put chapstick on for like two hours.. i regret it. i am very very thirsty. and have been getting a headache at least once a day. very sensitive to the sun. oh and my skin is starting to clear up! :( i have no actives on my forehead. a few on my cheeks but they're flat. except for this monster on my left cheek that just doesn't want to go away. it's HUGE! reminds me of that mole that guy has on Austin Powers Gold Member! haha; oh and the honey for spot treatement! def think it's working. or.. maybe it's the accutane. lol. but anywho i'm gonna keep doing it cuz it doesn't dry me out! and things seem to be going well with it. also bought fish oil tonight! My hair is dryyyyy! i feel bad for straightening it!

Hello! I am starting accutane on Monday August 30 and I am also keeping a log! We should keep in touch for support! I am trying to keep up with your log so I know what to expect. I am quite sorry to hear about your anxiety attack.

They haven't told me yet.. I know it goes off of how much you weigh and I weigh 115lbs. But I'll be finding out Monday! I'm so excited and nervous at the same time. I am excited to have clear skin but I'm nervous for the blood work (I hate needles), initial breakout, and side effects.

Oh believe me i am soooo scared for the IB! i hope it's not toooo bad! and yeah with the bloodwork i look at it this way. i'd rather get poked every month to make sure i'm ok :- then to find out 3 months later that i have like major internal damage. just what i tell myself so i don't freak out. lol. & hmm.. i weight about 118 - 122 i'm up & down all the time. lol. i started on 40mg. but it all just depends on the dermatologist. i've read people on there who weigh more than i do and start on like 20 mg?
