Day 35 (not good)

im sad

Hang in there buddy...A couple more months and you'll have clear skin and be lookin awesome! I actually envy you doing this at 17 years old ... I wish I would've done it at that age and not waited til I was 30.... I can't believe I put myself through an extra 10+ years of grief when I should have gotten on Accutane a LOOOONG time ago.

Just tough it out... It'll be a rough couple of months, but there is a bright shiny light at the end of the tunnel!

I use 80 mg a day, its rough, and I hate the dry lips side effect, (I am on month 4 of acutane). The back pain is annoying, I am a dancer and its greatly affected my back flexibility. The Burnt Marks on your forehead are probably Exeema, try some hydrocoritzone cream or extreme moisturizer, (Cerave cream tubs) My acne is just now starting to turn around and get better, it takes time, but it is all worth it! :) Also drink lots of water, and dont drink any coffee or soda, and dont take any vitamins with Vitamin A in it. As for the being sad, it just gets you sometimes, some days I can be on top of the world, other days I just wanna hide. BUT when ever this happens. I just tell myself it will get better, throw on some happy tunes and dance around my room like a goof!:) If you have any questions feel free to ask

I like your style of log - listing the various symptoms and their level of severity on that given day.

Hope the treatment works out for you!

Good luck with the course. It sounds like you are starting to turn a corner with this! Don't let the ance get you down your going to look awesome in the end of this. I'm 25 and just started 6 days ago. I wish I would have done it 3 years ago when it was first offered to me. It will all be over soon!
