i've finished month four and i'm three days away from month five.
dianette is beginning to kick in more but i'm also aware that i'm getting the odd little spot.
i am surprised i made it to month five and survived! i was reflecting over how crap i used to feel and how now when i look in the mirror i feel more confident, more accepting. it's so difficult to do when you're at that stage but i feel like it's made me appreciate more than just looks.
the scarring is slowly going down to give way to clearer skin. i find the cheek is the hardest place for it to clear up. i know i'm not 100% clear but i'm about 70% and that's well and truly on the way so i dont mind so much.
i hate being off the pill though because i'm not sure if its a trigger for why i got my chin spot. i can feel a little one underneath my last one and i hope this does not trigger it again.
in any sense those who are finding it a struggle with Dianette, just know that patience, even when you're impatiently waiting to be patient, is necessary. being calm is the trick - i still remember hiding in bed because i didnt want to go out but now i feel like i can at least look at people in the eye - i guess i feel braver.
anyhow i start month 5 on tuesday - and then by the time i start university i will have reached clear skin target. well at least that's what i hope.
over and out.
