IB?

Today is day 4 on accutane. I think I experiencing a horrible IB but I am not 100% sure if this can be attributed to accutane. The reason is that I was breaking out badly and in a plethora even before I started accutane. Every morning I wake up I would see a ton of new pimples on my face and this has not changed much. It subsided for a while within last week but now it is back with full force. I have so many pimples and whiteheads and I feel like if it's only going to get worse. I don't see or can't even imagine how the breakouts could possibly stop anytime soon. I look so horrible and disgusting. I am plagued by my skin everywhere I go walk by a store and happen to see a reflection of myself and it makes me flinches. I hate my appearance right now and the worst part is I don't have much faith that things will improve anytime soon in fact I am pretty sure it's going to get worse before it even starts to get better. I am so anxious to just get over this it's seriously ruining my life and taking away my chance to live a normal life. I at my wits end. I feel like if my face is going to be completely covered in breakouts!...HELP! I might have to stay in doors for a while and not go to work or anywhere until it gets better because I don't want be in public looking like this. I am so tired of this crap..I just want to have normal skin why is that so much to ask for?

So after a long roller coaster ride with my acne I am finally turning to accutane. I really hope it works and the side effects are minimal and nothing too bad. I was suppose to start on it last week but due to the whole Ipledge thing I am now starting a week late. I am scared yet hopeful. I am so tired of living with acne. It has ruined my social life, took away my confidence and plunged my self esteem to all time lows. I am tired of going to bed crying and waking up horribly depressed by my appearance. I want to have clear skin again and I am willing to do whatever it takes to get it. I can't live like this anymore because it's taking a huge toll on me emotionally, mentally and socially. I don't even go on job interviews because of how bad my skin looks..no one should have to live like this. If accutane can truly take it away it will be worth the dry skin, chapped lips, sore muscles, nose bleeds (hopefully nothing more serious than this will happen). Bring it on...I am willing to go to hell and back if it means clear skin that's how desperate and insane I have become. Usually I mange to keep the breakouts under control but recently it has exploded violently on my face. And it's spreading I have whiteheads everywhere and when they go away more come out! It's like there is no end. I am worried about stopping the breakouts and the scarring issue as well.
