I popped my last little yellow pill last night. No more difficult blister pill packs, no more pregnancy tests, and soon no more digging through purses and drawers and pockets in a desperate search for Chapstick. Hopefully. Strangely, I'm not concerned about breaking out again. I figure there's no point in worrying about it until it happens, if/when it does. I will, however, miss seeing Dr. L. each month. Pretty sure I have a crush on my dermatologist.
I have absolutely no big complaints about Accutane beyond dryness. Sure, it took a long time to get to the point, but now my skin is looking good, so it was worth the wait. I'm still contending with those red marks, which I hope will keep fading. But a few red marks are much better than giant, white, pulsating bumps. Okay, so maybe they didn't pulsate per say, but you get my drift. Come to think of it, it's been quite some time since I had a blemish; I think I just stopped noticing that I don't have any.
It'll be interesting to see how long it takes the moisture to come back to my face. I've enjoyed not having to wash my hair daily, so I will miss that. But I won't miss the dandruff that Accutane caused for me, so I guess it all evens out. And now I can have a few drinks when I go out! I'm by no means a big drinker, but it'll be fun to get just a bit tipsy again. I think that above everything else, I'm just looking forward to having normal lips again. It took a good two weeks for my lips to get weird when I started, so I'm hoping it'll take two weeks for them to get back to normal. Fingers crossed!
