Day 148---Negu

NEGU -- Google it. Stands for Never Ever Give Up.

I was about to cry when I ran out of Accutane about a month ago. I didn't know when I would be able to refill my prescription. I was off of it for around 2 weeks. Surprisingly, my skin did not get any worse over those two weeks. My dry lips did go away after about a week sans Accutane.

When I finally got back on the stuff, I had a little IB, which surprised me. It lasted around a week. At this point, I'm actually feeling like I'm improving. But why is it taking me so much longer than everyone else?? I've recently increased fat in my diet, which I've read is crucial for Accutance results since the drug is fat-soluble. That could explain why it seems to be working better recently. At this point, because of my setback, I'm looking at completing treatment around the middle of May. I don't want to be on this stuff forever, and I know that eventually I will have to come off of it even if I haven't achieved clear skin. I'm getting married in the Fall and I don't want to walk down the aisle looking like a pimply faced teenager. Those days are supposed to be behind me!

You look great! I read your profile and noted that you are a feminist. That is fantastic. I am too. I have a law degree and I used to stand up for women's rights when I was practicing. My mother is a feminist too. she started the Chrysalis Center for Women in Minneapolis, MN.

Just wanted to let you know that I'm on Day 127 & getting frustrated that it is taking so long too. The derm wants me to stay on the accutane until I have a breakout free month. Hope things continue to get better for you!

I'm sorry you're also feeling frustrated, but I'm glad I'm not the only one. I just feel like for everyone elsey they started being clear after 3 months at the most.. It has now been over 5 months for me and I'm still not clear, or even close to clear. What gives? I'm dry and I've been dry since month 2.. I thought that the dryness meant that the oil was gone and isn't the oil supposedly what causes the blemishes? I DON'T EVEN HAVE ANY OIL!! (End rant.. )
