Day 22,

Well, I feel as if my face has gotten a bit better so far. It looks ok today, I see the 3 cysts on my right side subsiding, they're hardly noticable.. this is amazing! then the blemishes on my chin/around my mouth area are still there. My lips didn't dry too bad today, feeling very week. I've noticed the accutane has taken a toll on my joints. I weight lift quite a bit, and pain is starting to show up.

Day 23,

Nothing new to really report. My lips aren't that bad today, I'm very sick though. I feel so tired.. I've had this cold that hasn't gone away in a week and my head hurts so bad. I'm too tired to even care to see if my face has gotten any better.. whatever sad.gif

Day 25,

I think I see a future cyst forming or something who knows. I feel like it's starting to get worse now sad.gifsad.gif. I hear it works in cycles though when people are on the treatment. Ah man, hopefully i'll be totally clear after the whole 6 months..

No sides to really report, lips aren't too bad today
