After waiting 2 months from my first appointment with my dermatologist telling me I will be starting Isotretinoin I can't wait for Monday to roll around. Having to wait one month to have my birth control fitted; the implant because was not feeling the return to the doctors every 3 months for an injection, and then one further month before I could start.

I am absolutely terrified and don't know what to expect.

As well as having persistent mild/moderate acne on my cheeks, chin, chest and back I also have Guttate Psoriasis and am terrified that it will 'flare up' while on this drug though my dermatologist did inform me that that wasn't likely "nothing to worry about".

After spending the past 2 months researching side effects, risks and the appropriate this that and the other to do while on Isotretinoin I still can not wait to begin this journey.

I can't wait for children not to ask me what is wrong with my face or ask what is on my face or if I can't eat properly while at work. I can't wait for my face to not be sore when I wake up or my back to hurt when I lie down. I can not wait to start seeing results after so many years of acne.
