Day 25 - Gross Skin

monopoly

252 views

Hello,

My skin is gross. It's flakier and those painful bumps I had before aren't painful anymore, they're just bumps that sort of seem undecided on what to do with themselves. Then I think I've got some whiteheads. Overall same old, aside from the new breakouts.

I don't know if I may have jumped the gun on thinking it's my IB. I am not on birth control this week as to induce a period, so maybe the breakouts were related to that somehow, I don't know.

This post is lifeless, I am beyond exhausted!

I am fasting right now because tomorrow morning I'm getting blood work done. The results will rule out how my body's holding up with Accutane, as well to see if there are any improvements with my B12 levels. I'm really really curious about all this! I miss exercising and sitting in the steam room afterwards. Well, I don't know if exercising will be that good of an idea considering the sciatic nerve pain I've had lately.

And completely unrelated, but the Invisalign braces I've started wearing just annoy me to no end. Nothing but constant pressure on all my teeth, which is necessary to align them and fill in the gaps.

Why am I being an emo! Despite feeling and not looking my best, I would have to say I am at my peak in terms of my thinking which has made for some great conversations and thoughts lately.

I should just hang on and be grateful instead for my opportunity to have free Accutane and the chance at changing my life. I'm fasting for another 11 hours but at least I know I get to eat unlike a lot of people in the world.

Peace
