Well, things have been going pretty ok! I think I have entered the initial breakout phase. I was hoping I would be that percentage that didnt!
I have numerous large lesions on my cheek and they are all clustered together. I think that this was something waiting to come out though because I remember having small bumps there before accutane. My forehead also has several large nodules where previous small bumps were. I had a few blackheads that were impossible to get rid of without ruining my face but they have purged themselves out on their own! So I guess that is one positive! I don't have to really squeeze pimples anymore to get stuff out. It is kinda coming out on its own!
I have had dry lips and face. My face is a lot drier than it was a few days ago but it is bearable! No aches, pains, dry eyes or the infamous 'seeing or hearing things that aren't real'. Thank god! I had a slight headache the other day but I can assure you it was because I did not drink enough water. Does anyone know if it is true that Accutane dehydrates your whole body, and if so, why? Oh I also went for a 30 min jog the other day with spf 30 on along with bare minerals and I came back RED! I am guilty of being a tanaholic in my previous days and I do not burn easily due to my complexion so this was a shocker!
I started feeling a little 'out of it' the other day BUT it may be due to a recent move, other stresses in life, and me thinking about it wayyy too much. I think the best way to deal with this process is to not think about it too much! Is anyone else going through this?
Thanks for reading!
