Hey, lovely people!
My name is Alex and I decided that to keep up my spirits/track my progress/meet other people with acne I should start a blog! So ... here I go! For the past four years I have been following Accutane blogs on this site and trying to deal with my persistent moderate/severe acne by going on countless topicals/prespcription meds/antibiotics etc. Needless to say, they haven't worked and so when my skin began scarring I switched dermatologists. My new derm has prescribed me 40mg of Accutane per day and I could not be happier. I know it will be a rough journey but I am ready to do whatever it takes to regain my self esteem and get rid of all the physical and psychological pain that comes with suffering from acne.
Wishing you all the best. xx
