Month 3 - Week 3 Doctor's Appt. Update



Hey. I went to the doctor and she checked out the acne on my back. I'm pretty sad. Looks like a lot of what is left are hypertrophic scars on my back :( and I'm still breaking out like EVERYDAY on my face. I have a new pimple on my forehead literally everyday. I don't get it. When does this stop, my skin has only gotten worse, it has barely gotten better. This is the most frustrated I have been. I only feel like i'm damaging my skin here rather than healing it. When I look at videos of people who have gone through accutane their skin may have gotten worse but like I feel like this is just damaging my skin. I'm so frustrated. Also, with the scars, I won't even be able to start treatment for my scars 3 months after accutane. That makes me feel even worse. I really want to just beat this and let it out of my life. I feel haunted by my acne and now it seems further and further away that ill ever beat it. :(

The first few months on accutane are the hardest both physically and emotionally.  Many people don't begin to clear till later in their course and a few won't clear up will after.

Keep positive and stay strong
