I made through the first month!!!! I just went to see my doctor and he said that apparently I'm one of the rare cases that starts clearing up in the first month I hope that means I won't have to go the full 5-6 months taking the isotretinoin. Ahh I'm so happy!
Side effect wise, they haven't really been too bad. My lips are definitely driving me nuts..I have chapstick stationed in about every room throughout my house haha my nose has been bleeding a little and I've had some pain/aching in my back and ribs. I've been using aquaphor every night on my face, moisturizer every morning, and dandruff shampoo to control the dryness. So far its been working great!!
However...I have noticed that I've been kind of emotional lately. I was at home by myself watching the Disney movie Tangled and I almost started crying. THREE TIMES. I'm not an emotional person at all and I hardly ever cry. I've also been extremely irritable which could just be stress since I'm studying for finals for college but my family probably things I'm a huge brat right now
On another note, it's almost time for Christmas!! I've been busy making Christmas cards for my family since I love to draw. My mom and I are going to have a baking day soon and make tons of Christmas cookies and cakes!
Well I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas and good luck to everyone else suffering from acne. Maybe by New Years we'll wake up with beautiful clear skin
