I haven't been back here since my first post a little over a month ago.
I just want to say a big thank you to everyone who suggested I give accutane a try. I had been thinking about it for a while but too frightened by all the side effects to take the plunge....well I'm finally taking the plunge...YES! I'm still scared but at this point I'm so ready for a change that I can definitely say that the possible benefits are well worth the potential risks. I hope this works. It's been too long. It's funny because when I think about the possibilty of having clear skin it actually brings tears to my eyes. I've had awful skin for so long that I'd pretty much given up on ever finding the right remedy. So, the fact that this might be it is BIG!
Anyway, I took my first 40mg tablet today after lunch and so far so good . I've included a couple of pictures as well.
