Monday can't come soon enough...

Monday is my follow up appt. with my dermatologist. I'll know if all my blood work checks out and hopefully I will walk out of there with my prescription. My skin seems to be getting worse everyday. It doesn't help when my boss makes me feel super lousy for it. I understand his frustration, being that I'm an esthetician and can't seem to get my skin under control. But it's not my fault! I'm frustrated, too! I've had this problem for years and years. I've used so many medications, my skin and body have become very resistant to antibiotics and BP, even topical tretinoin doesn't do much. He asks me almost everyday when I'm gonna start my treatment, and everyday I give him the same answer. i don't think he realizes that my skin is going to get much worse before it gets better. Needless to say, my day at work sucked. I just keep telling myself that it'll be better soon. I posted a couple of pictures in the 'Accutane Gallery', but apparently they'll be approved in about 24hrs. If you're interested in seeing my progress, check 'em out.. Thanks to anyone that's reading and it feels pretty damn good to be able to share with people who actually know how I'm feeling. I'm trying to not let it get me down, but that's a bit tough... :rolleyes:

Hello! I'll find out on Monday what my doseage is gonna be. I'm assuming she'll probably start me at 40. When I first took it, my skin was, if you can believe it, was waaaaay worse that it looks now, my derm then started me at 80. I took one 40 in the am and another in the pm. Then it got lower and lower during the course of tx, which was about 2 years. I know doseage has a lot to do with your size and, I think, severity. I'm fairly tall and at an average weight for my height but my acne is a bit severe. I will definitley post after my appt. Thanks for reading, and good luck to you on your treatment!
