Day 14

Hey all!

I feel pretty decent today. No headaches yet. A couple small ones yesterday, but definitely bearable. I have been working out for about 1.5 hrs everyday. It's been really positive. I figure that once the accutane kicks in, my face will look good and so will my body, and I'll feel really healthy again!

I was saying something like that to my husband, and he said something like I already AM pretty healthy, but it's hard to explain to someone who's never had acne how even if you're in tip top shape, it's hard to feel "healthy" without clear skin. Maybe it's more emotional health. IDK.

Anyway, my face: I woke up with what appears to be a small cyst, but it already has a head forming, on my left cheek. A small pimple above that, which is almost dead. AND one rather large active pimple on my right cheek... hopefully it will dry out by tonight. The trio of cysts that were on my left cheek are almost gone. Other than that, nothing too serious. I'm amazed at seedy blackheads that just fall out of my face when I'm washing it. It's really weird.

Ditto. I feel the same way about working out now. It's like I have extra motivation to workout b/c I know (wish and wish and wish) that once the 5 months are through, I'll be healthy, in shape AND for the first time have clear skin, for good. Total health. It's a great motivator to work out. I never realized it, but you're right - I've never felt completely healthy b/c of my skin. I may be the only one, but I've noticed that I have more confidence in my skin since starting Accutane, just knowing that soon I may have clear skin for good. It's so weird. It's like there's a hope now that I never knew I was without (or something). Sounds so serious, but it really is for people who have suffered far too long from a condition that others have no clue how much it effects the individual's confidence. Sorry to jam up your comments section:) - and I hope you don't mind but I've blogged about your post. Just let me know if you'd rather I not, and I'll take it down. Katy

No, it's so nice to know that other people feel like me... Someone actually understands! Thanks, girl!
