It's been a few days since I updated you guys, I'm sorry. It's been a rough week really. I had two new cystic bumps pop up under my jaw/neck area and a weird breakout of tiny bumps all over my face. I think it was the Evening Primrose I tried to incorporate into my daily regimen...at least I hope so. I also tried to start taking a probiotic to help with the antibiotic, but I stopped that just in case it was the cause. Guess I'll never know if EPO works or not. My skin was healing so well and then it just exploded and not it's all red and angry and the texture is just blah. The crazy thing is my left side was mainly unaffected except for a few weird patches of rough bumps, the right side got the brunt of it really.

It's super depressing and to top it all off, it's started to really affect my relationship. He's the most understanding person in the world, but it's hard to make someone understand that your skin is so important...especially when they have nice skin themselves. I only hope that this weird set back is only temporary. I'll keep you guys updated, much love!

I do take the eveming primrose and I found it helpful for my problem  (breast nodules) and I am really happy with the probiotics effect on my body-mostly digestive sistem. I suffer from acne as well and no treatment ever treat me complrtly.  I am going to start accutane treatment soon and I am a bit nervous about it.  If you had just a few breakouts during this treatment why Don t you give it more time? Sometimes it is normal to have them in the begging of some treatment. Good luck!

I'm honestly terrified to go back on either of them and I am most likely going to be put on Accutane myself. I really just don't want any more scarring and I'm tired of trying everything.

I wish you all the luck with your Accutane journey, please feel free to let me know how it's going! (I would actually love to know.)
