Day 171 - Week 24



Well, it's been a month since I've talked to you guys and not much has changed. At all. There just hasn't been enough happenings to report on to you guys. But, I figured since I'm almost done with my course that I should check in. 

I am 5 days away from being finished. Well... 5.5, I have tonight's pill and then 5 more days worth. I'm so stoked to be finished but a little disappointed that I might have to do another one. I have decided that, if the medication really didn't work and I'm still covered by my insurance, that I will continue with a second course. I don't know if I've told you guys but I have not paid a dime out of pocket for any of my meds. I have awesome poor people insurance that enabled me to get it for free so as long as I still have access to no co-pay on the medication, I might as well do a second course. 

So, just to let you know: I plan to do this post, a post the day after getting off the medication, 15 days after, and 30 days after just to give a baseline and a timeline. Also, I took some pictures of my back and my face at the start so we'll do some side by sides to show the difference. There definitely has been some improvement (and maybe I just say that because of how bad this medication made my acne in the beginning) and I'm just hoping that it stays this way, if not better. We'll see but fingers crossed. 

Things I am looking forward to: not having to put on 80 lbs of moisturizer every day, not owning 900-something chapsticks because I might die without one, being able to wear lipstick without my lips falling off, my lips NOT FALLING OFF, makeup without the hard lines, no more accutane rash, no more constant facial redness! I'm sure there's more but I'm running out of free time to finish up this post. 

So! Until next time!
