First day

So hello everyone. I am new on this site but it seems as if it everyone understands exactly what I am going through. I've suffered from acne for 7 years now, and I feel so at a loss of hope and happiness, however today I started my first dose of Amnesteem. Im taking 2 doses of 40mg, and my dermatologist also put me on prognistone pills to help with some of the Amnesteem side effects, such as swelling, and redness, pretty much telling me that it's going to get worse before it gets any better :doh: It's not really what I wanted to hear, but I guess there's no really good news when it comes to acne. I would really like to hear any stories from any one else out there that has gone through this or is in the process. I'm a little scared and dont really know what to expect, except a lot of dryness and a summer spent indoors :) I hope this makes my journey a little easier.... Love Liz
