Glad you're getting the tane and good luck!! Your acne doesnt look bad at all so hopefully tane will work for you relatively quickly!

Oh and I vote for the short hair :)

French Canadian, woo, George St. Pierre is French Canadian and he is yum, okay back to the subject at hand good luck with your course, your skin is not bad at all so I am sure you will clear up quickly. I vote for the longer hair but then again I usually like longer hair on guys. Either way you are an attractive guy, short or long hair, acne or not.

Thx a lot u guys! you really are a self-confidence booster, waiting for my pills right now so nothing really new to report. face isnt too bad. Got a new haircut also :P so maybe it will help since my hair were always in my face. i like the new look its better when im training and doing sports cuz im not sweating on my hair (forehead). so thats pretty much it for now!

I believe you can drink water, just make sure it is NOT flavored or anything like that, has to be pure water with nothing added to it.

Also, I started yesterday- we're in it together man. Good luck.

I played with my friend from new york cuz we just bought mercenaries 2 form pc and we had some fun hehe. Now ill proly go in a bar tonight and eat nachos or something mmmm i know the best place lol. last time i went to a bar was like months ago ... gay acne its ruining my life. At least i have accutane now. I dont see a lot of results for now but no new pimples at least and no IB for now so thats pretty cool. Thats pretty much it for today.

Cheers!

Day 4

Hey guys, still feeling good today.

I still dont have any side effects and results, maybe 40 mg is not enough for me? im at 185 pounds, maybe u guys can tell me. Ill probably just ask my derm to give me a higher dose when ill see him in about 1 month.

So for now my lips are not dry at all, same for the face and whole body so I dont even have to use the things that I bought to moisturize lol.

Acne is still there with some blackheads on my nose. I hate those and I wish accutane will make them dissapear for good!

I just hope really that my acne will be gone in a few months before I start school again so I can ask this really cool girl out .

The rest of my day was ok.

Damn, I hope my skin is as good as yours when my course is over!

PS, when you take pics try holding your camera's button down half way for a few seconds first then push it fully. That way it'll focus properly ;)

tane sucks arse but it does wonders. Get a good moisturizer and be prepared to just feel tired sometimes. I used to take 2 hours naps all the time in between college classes. Oh! use lots of chapstick! LOTS!!!

Time to change ur age below ur sinature. Still says u r 21
