Setbacks

Ahhh...setbacks... :doubt: I ran out of Proactiv cleanser almost a week ago, and I've been dilluting the last little bit left in the bottle to wash my face with. I noticed immedietly that the breakouts I still had seemed to stop healing/clearing up. To make matters worse, last night I went to bed bare faced, without applying Differin. When I woke up, I had a few teeny-tiny pustules, and one of the red spots that had been healing swelled back up into a cyst. So I picked up a Clean and Clear 2-in-1 Acne and Mark Eraser Kit. I got it just to use the cleanser, at least until my Proactiv gets here. The cleanser is hard core 10% Benzoyl Peroxide, so hopefully it (with the Differin) does the trick. Seems crazy to be treating topically with Proactiv and Differin, but My face is still super oily, it needs it. I think I'd have better luck switching to Retin A, I just don't want to deal with another 3 month initial breakout.

As for as the Yasmin- I am still hopeful, however I have to be honest, the past two days I've been in a real funk, I'm talking bad (ie- suicidal thoughts). This is not typical for me, and there's nothing going on in my life to give any reason for it. At the moment, I feel fine, but I'm definitely monitering this possible side effect carefully.

On a more positive note, I guess the one good thing to come from this week is that my boobs are still getting bigger :( Haha- sorry, but for someone who is soooo small normally, getting this effect w/o surgery is pretty awesome.

Ok, so maybe in my next entry I'll have more positive things to post about!
