When I have a bad skin day (you know, just like a bad hair day but with skin) my mom would always say: "wow honey, your skin looks really bad. You have alot of acne today. What happened?" So my reaction is:"wtf? I can't help it. Fuck off"
Every freakin day she would mention it (preferabbly at the table with my whole family when we have family diners with my grandparents and my aunts and uncles). And when she didn't mention it she would give me "the look". You know, looking up and down your face and then sighing. That start to weigh you down and shatters your confidence.
Today, however, she gave me a compliment. The accutane must really be working if it has made my mom give me a compliment. This of course happened, again, at the diner table with my whole family. So she said "are you taking those pills again to get rid of your bad acne?"
My family had no idea I was taking "dangerous" pills for a vain reason so I got a shower of questions and saying that it probably wasn't smart of men to take those pills in light of all the side-effects.
A good thing never comes alone....
anywho, seems like things are slowly clearing up. I still have a lot of zits on the right side of my face, the side I sleep on. Maybe that's connected.
I have zits in my neck as well, never had that before accutane.
Itchyness is less and flakyness as well, though not gone.
Just hope it's only getting better from here on.
