It's been awhile since I've been here! So I should be entering my sixth month by now (I think). My skin looks a lot better. Much, MUCH smoother. I do get one or two small pimples around my period...which still pissed me off to no end! These past few months I've been really frustrated with the slow progress. I asked my derm if this was normal and he told me I am one of those people whose body metabolizes accutane differently. Basically he was saying that the drug goes through my liver, up about and around...until it finally takes an effect on my skin. Therefore, he said, the first three months of treatment were the equivalent of one month of treatment (GREAT). I began this journey with mild acne, it became kinda moderate I would say, and now I'm left with gross red marks (and maybe some shallow scarring). I can't really tell...they might just be enlarged pores. aye. who knows. I have no active acne at the moment. One on my chin is finally healing up. I use the aspirin mask mixed with my moisturizer. LOVE IT. I swear it is helping so much. I just really want to finally feel pretty, and it's a slow process but I think im going to get there. Side effects suck. Dry hair (maybe thinning? I have so much I can't tell), dry dry skin (with many many bruises and cuts), joints so sore, and fatigue like nothing else. Oh forgot to mention, got upped to 100MG! I Know, a lot, my lips hate me right now. anyway, hope all is well with everyone!
