I'm gonna try my best to stay positive throughout this post but these last few weeks have been a bit rough. So I'll try not to focus on the bad, as many of us know this is a JOURNEY and no quick fix. It gets worse before it gets better is a VERY true statement.
Side effects: dry arms (some white patches are forming on them so I keep them moisturized), body aches (REALLY bad after working out for a day), eye dryness (very slight, I can still sleep in my contacts most nights), and increased appetite (I don't know if this is from the meds but its happening to me!)
Acne: these past few weeks I've gotten a lot of spots. They all go away pretty quick, but they are more frequent than I am used to. Nothing cystic; the largest ones have been inflamed whiteheads. I have a small eczema spot (or so it seems) on my forehead that clearing up but bugging me, other than that I have about 2 small spots and 1 healing mark. I stopped picking completely and my face looks a lot calmer just from that. Positive note: all of my closed comedones I got from my hormonal hell from Spiro have purged. Also spots come and go way faster than before. Pretty much ZERO BODY ACNE. Love that.
Doctors Appt: My triglycerides were HIIGH so I am getting them rechecked and then probably going to be put on a cholesterol-reducing med. That is stressing me. We are going through with upping my dosage to 25 mgs twice a day (from 40 to 50).
As of now I am breaking out a little bit everyday. Nothing horrendous, just enough to annoy me and make me feel bummed.
Any wors of encouragement would be very much appreciated. Thank you guys.
