It's Day 129 (still in the middle of week 19).
Things are finally starting to heal. THANK GOODNESS. Seriously. After like 7 days of absolutely terrible skin, it's so, so nice to just be covering up some red marks and be able to go out in public and feel somewhat decent.
I still have 1 small red mark on my left cheek that's healing (from a deep clogged pore that purged there), 1 small one on my left jawline, 2 on my right jawline, and 1 small one on my chin.
I'm still taking my meds as I should, drinking a ton of water, eating healthy food, taking a multi-vitamin, and hoping that things continue to improve. I am in the midst of my cycle, and I need to find out before my next one how to deal with the hormones and acne.
I am taking Ortho Tri-Cyclen regularly, but I'm still getting my period a week early every time--around 3 weeks instead of 4 :/
I really want to just take 2 packs and go 2 months without a period, but my body never lets me do that.
Here's hoping that things continue to heal and improve, and that I can feel happy and confident at work this week and next weekend!
Thank you if you said a quick prayer for me--it really means a lot!
