I started the dreaded accutane again on January 12. I say dreaded because I remember the dryness I got as a teen. I never wanted to take it again. It did, however, work wonders. For some reason, I get my Karma in the form of acne and painful, ill-timed periods. But WAHHHHH! I am going to be 30 on December 27 and I do NOT want to have acne anymore. I have a village of puss filled idiots hanging out on my face all the time. Contrary to what my face believes, this is not the cutest thing. I have a list of 30 things I would like to do before I turn thirty. One of them is to take accutane and fix my face....hopefully forever!!!!!
Today I am on day 4. I have had no side effects other than my knees being pretty darn achy. (I know, it could be from my old age or my lack of exercising recently). I have been drinking loads of water and moisturinzing. Being dry is almost as embarressing to me as having acne. Almost. I took some pictures on the night I started. The lighting is bad. I think they are awful but it is actually worse in different lighting. At the end of week 1, I will take pictures in different lighting.
I want to hear all about y'alls journey, too! Who is starting at the same time as me? How is it going?
