Accutane-Week 9 (Progress?)



I remember a quote that has stuck with me for as long as I can remember. "in order to get to the rainbow you have to put up with the rain". Well ain't that the truth.

I went to the dermatologist on Monday for a check up. He told me that I'm past the worst of it now. Then the next day my left side broke out. Ah the irony. However, I cannot complain. He gave me benzaclin to spot treat. I've had it before. It ruins your towel, sheets & clothes. I remember it all too well. He also told me to be patient :)

The wretched right side is finally, slowly drying out. It's looking much better than it has been I have to admit. It's not as red and not as infected & bumpy. It's slow but it's progress. I'll take it.

I still get upset I won't lie. I hid in the bedroom closet and cried the other night. When my left side broke out I felt defeated. You just end up staring at yourself wondering when it will just end. I got up, brushed away my tears and reminded myself to keep going as I've been doing.

So on I go into another week.

No new symptoms. My nose is super dry on the inside and constantly bloody. Dry lips, dry eyes.

Stay positive :)
