Day 20 (?)



Once again, I'm at home with my puppy because I didn't want to go out with my friends when I have two red cysts on my chin that HURTS. At least my puppy is happy.

It feels like everything I do is to make my skin clear (eating right, researching constantly, taking vitamins all day) and nothing is working. Is it my pill? I've been on Alesse for over a year now and it's made me break out off and on, but not to this extent. My forehead is covered in bumps, I have one big zit just above my lip, and two huge ones on my chin. I even have on on my cheek and I never get zits there. I switched from Diane to Alesse hoping to 'taper off" bcp all together, because Alesse was one of the lower estrogin pills.

This week is my week off the active pills. If I break out this crazy after 3 days, whats it gonna be like when i'm off the pill for a month, 2 months, a year?!!

If it gets any worse I am ready to go to the doctor next weekend.....I don't know if I want to swtich BCP...the whole reason I've been staying on Alesse was to get ready to go off BCP all together. Now that I have a wedding to look pretty for I don't know what to do.

I bought the Tanda light therapy treatment today. SO expensive....but if I think about going to a spa to get this treatment, I guess this is cheap. There may not be much scientific evidence behind this, but I've heard good things. It's charging right now - can't wait to test it out!!

I may have to quit taking Vitamin B5....my stomach has been so upset and I feel like I've been losing way too much weight because of this. I do feel that my face was getting way less oiler though...what a shame I can't keep taking it.
