Recap Georgia Florida

Georgia sucks, Tim Tebow is a deusche apart from that. This weekend was unreal. I left for Sea Island on wednesday night. The weather was flawless, plus I was staying with a friend and his mom hooked it up with her homemade specialties. The weather was so warm I swam every day.

When I got to Jacksonville my friends family had their yacht(rough life) parked outside the stadium. I sold my ticket and balled out on the boat. Pretty good time.

As for my face, dry as hell, being outside all this time I really didnt get that sunburnt. I was surprised being on the tane and all. Oh well I aint complaining. No real new actives, hoping things are looking up. This is my last week of my second month, thats encouraging, plus I'm banking on the notion that third month is when things legit clear up. Lifes pretty good right now, holla at ya hoy.



Damn it feels good to

be a gansta.

Well of

course I picked at a deep one and I'm paying the price. Other

than that. Things are looking good. Skin is slowly

clearing up.

I have a question though. Is keeping a close shave beneficial? Or

does it matter. I

seem to break out with more

facial hair than not. Anyone

got something.



My bloodwork came back, it was just as I had figured...perfect. Ok so here are some pictures. I tried to do this the other day but I assume it didn't work.

I was worried about the lifestyle I had carried out my first month. I think the rule I followed worked out well. Go hard one night and simply don't drink the rest of the week. Sortve blows but so worth it in the end.

This was last thursday



So this weekend was a blast besides the uga loss, I have basically given up all hope.

I had my blood work done on thursday of last week, and I have my derm appt. tomorrow morning. I am slightly worried my tests will be off due to two nights of drinking this past month. Hopefully not though.

As far as my face goes I think I have seen some improvements. Only two actives and they are small. Last week was really bad, but life goes on. I decided to attach some pictures to profile my progress.

I apologize for the rediculous pictures, however they were all I could find and fit within the time period of my treatment.

pic one was probably August 1

pic two was the weekend before I started tane

pic three is thursday of last week


It just doesnt end

I really feel like it just doesn't end. Why oh why has my ib lasted the entire first month. I turn a corner and feel like I'm on the up swing and then bam. Fml. Tomorrow is my bloodwork and Monday is my month two derm app. I have had a few drinks over my first month. I admit I have been drunk twice this first month. Hopefully things will be ok. Other than that life has been ok I just don't lookin mirrors and going out. I try to make the best of it but sometimes it's so so hard. I know I'm about to turn the corner I just know it.

Holla at your boy



UGA lost

Great weekend turned sour. Friday night was amazing, had a great time. I did have 5 or so beers, they were spaced out don't really think its a big deal. Gameday I didn't have anything to drink and actually really enjoyed myself more than usual, except we lost total bullshit too. Oh well thats life.

i really haven't had any breakouts, I'll get one a week or so. It still blows but at least I can finally say this medicine is actually working? don't want to jinx it though. I get my bloodwork done this week. Hopefully nothing will be off. I'm feeling great and am getting into the best shape I have been in in a long time.

Oh I do have one big zit on my chin that hurts like shit every time I move my mouth. You can't tell its really there though which is very strange?

Have a dandy week world.



Yea so I suppose I was correct in saying the tane moves from top to bottom. My forehaed9which never was an issue, and cheeks are clearing up. however my chin has broken out in like 4 postules. I have found they clear up quickly though, and still leave red marks even though they are inactive. Should I start taking vitamin E? I also am a little concerned, I have gotten drunk twice and by drunk i mean hammered. Don't mean to sound like a deusche but its a real concern for me. I have gotten so many mixed signals. Almost all of my friends who have taken it recently have said they drank on it and had no problem. Browsing this site I have found otherwise. Clearly I was warned by the doc NO ALCOHOL, I took that to mean limit your consumption or at least that was teh vibe I got. I live a very healthy lifestyle, I run everyday and keep myself tone while eating a balanced diet. Anyone got any tips?



First Post

Ok so i'm 19 and go to the University of Georgia, acne has never seriously been a part of my life up untill about a year ago. I would get a few spots a week. Nothing over the top just really annoying. At the start of this year my face for whatever reason wen haywire. Or in my standards at least. It was so bad I just would laugh. Anyway, I finally decided i was going to start acutane and be done with the issue once and for all. I started my course Sept 17, 2009. I have been taking 60 mg(one 40 mg pill one day and two 40 mg the next). My doc said if I am really serious about the whole tane thing then were going balls to the wall. I believe I am just coming through my initial breakout, which sucked/sucks. I have been encouraged by everyone else's progress on this site. Short term pain for a long term gain. That's about it for my first post. I'll keep this as updated as possible.
