So I haven't posted in a while but, well, nothing has really happened...apart from developing the watery moustache.
The watery moustache is the name for the phenomena where my upper lip sweats non-stop all day. That, along with my watery eyes and dry, crusted lips, gives me that 'nervous sexual predator' look every self-conscious, desperate-to-fit-in teenager wants. I don't understand why I'm all of a sudden getting this though. I did get it a little when I over-exerted myself or became too hot but now there seems to be no trigger and I can't think what I could be doing/using that is making it happen all of a sudden.
Emotionally I'm very sensitive, where I'm literally reduced to tears over things I'd just brush off before Accutane. I don't think it's serious or anything but the up-and-downness is irritating because half the time I don't know how I'm feeling so I might push myself to do some work and end up over-stressing myself and crying. It's like 24/7 PMS. I think it's impacting on my work at 6th form and I have exams in January...
Not much else to say seeing as my skin is improving so slowly now. One thing I have noticed is that the spots I am getting now are large lumps without a head, just filled with a strange watery liquid. I like to think this is the infection in my pores being purged out; cheers me up to think that maybe I'm in the last stages of killing the acne. Also, those two, hard pebble-like spots that i had under my skin have shrunk a lot-one is pretty much gone-so I'm glad of that seeing as my Derm said they might be long-term/permanent calcium or keratin deposits. Still want them to up my dose and I'd love to be off it for Christmas because if I'm not I'm going to be conscious of what I'm eating (for blood fats) and I won't be able to drink any alcohol (well, technically I could have a little, but I'd rather not when my liver will already be under stress). It's a good thing I'm not really a big fan of alcohol, otherwise I'd be dreading the temptation coming my way.
