Week 2: I got my intitial breakout :'( It was terrible for me because I was clearing up so well. I woke up Monday with it and by Wednesday I was clearing up! I was pretty upset because I've been so moody since I started this medication. The silliest things can make me so mad. The week before last, I was LIVID that my mom wouldn't get me Chic-Fil-A. The back aches got intense and it is now pretty much all of my joints that hurt. I got the Clinique Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturizer, but I haven't used it because my face has been so flaky. I just keep getting drier and drier.
Week 3: I've started to go extreme-o moisturizing at night and I wake up with NO FLAKES! At about lunch time, I have a few, but that's bearable. Tomorrow, if I have time, I will try the new makeup. I haven't worn makeup in like 2 months! My body is starting to adjust to the dryness and I don't have to run for the aquaphor when I wake up. I also can go my whole school day without putting in more gel eyedrops. My hips, knees, back, and toes kill me after PE when all I do is walk the track for like 40 minutes I can't think of anything else for now, but I'll update next Tuesday!
Picture 1 is from week 2 and picture 2 is from week 3!
Update 11/8:I forgot to mention that my nose dried out and I've started getting nosebleeds. I was expecting actual flowing nosebleeds, but it's just a bit of blood here and there atm. Since it's cold, I'm sure that's not helping so on cold days I put Aquaphor in my nostrils with a q-tip (gross I know)
