I've decided. I'm taking accutane. Why the title of my blog is acne scar on tip of nose/accutane is because the acne scar on the tip of my nose was a turning point. Everyone has something in their life that represents a turning point for them. The acne scar on my nose symbolizes everything wrong with my life and my longing to turn it all around. It represents the lowest point in my life too. I know there is no better chance at getting this acne problem under control than accutane and I'm willing to take the risk. This afternoon I'll be taking my first dose and to be honest, instead of feeling anxious about it I just feel a sense of relief.
