WOW, 3 years off Roaccutane.
I don't even know how I thought of this blog today but it just popped into my head and I said I'd come on and have a look and give an update!
It's actually crazy reading back over my posts. This was where I felt I could express exactly how I was feeling about my skin with likeminded people. Its very obvious that as my skin got clearer and clearer, I felt I didn't need to blog about it! It wasn't on my mind as much.
It makes me quite sad reading back over the posts, because I was broken. I was so so so so so low at that time in my life and it was because of my skin. I have since learned that we are and our lives are much much much more than our skin, than what we see on the outside! But it's easy to say that, especially now that my skin is clear! At that time of my life, I was so so so so unhappy, and I dreamt of the day where I would wake up and be able to just walk out of the house and not have to paint my face and spend the day worrying if I needed to top it up or if a new yellow head was appearing for the world to see.
Going on Roaccutane was the best decision of my life. I did so much research on it before meeting a dermatologist and I knew it was the only thing that was going to work considering I had tried EVERYTHING!
Since I came off the course, my skin has been SUPER CLEAR. The marks from the acne even healed!
I get the very veeery odd spot now and again which doesn't bother me in the slightest
In the last couple of months, a close friend of mine, her skin has gotten very bad and she too has become so so so down in herself over it.
I have told her that her skin does not define her and she is beautiful inside and out, but I have also told her that I know these words mean fuck all when you get that low about your skin because I have been there myself. No amount of sweet words or compliments make you feel better. And even though you yourself would never judge another human because of their skin, you feel so insecure.
If you are considering going on Roaccutane, I would highly recommend it.
But DEFINITELY do your research and understand the side effects etc before jumping into it.
I hope my previous posts gave you some insight.
