So sick of acne

I so can't wait to start accutane- I saw an old picture of my BF & I right after my first round and I would kill to have that skin again. I have a handful of dead pimples on my right cheekbone and a pair on each temple that are seriously bothering me. My chin mila's calmed down for the moment but my period's about to start so I'm sure they'll come up soon. It's just really depressing that in the midst of finals, PMS, and some personal drama I have to be breaking out too.

Woot Woot!!

Thundercats are goooo!!! (not in the Juno kind of way though, that's not allowed while on accutane :redface:) I love this new dermatologist, although I think I should be a little worried about how chill he was about the whole thing. I never knew that if you're a virgin you can use abstinance as your only form of birth control- so no sick 1st saturday of the 3rd month like I've had the last two times on birth control! Also I only need to get blood drawn once, which I already did right after the appointment. The rest of the monthly tests are the pee-on-a-stick kind, which I'm very pleased about. The only not so great thing is because of the insurance my family's going on the first of the year I'm going to have to drive an hour out of my way to get my perscription filled until we spend $2500. Not the most thrilling prospect but hey, no one said clear skin was easy!

I have a lump on my left cheekbone that's bugging me and one above my right eyebrow. Most of the other issues are little bumps that I never used to get so I have no clue how to get rid of them.

So I'm due to leave for my appointment in a few minutes, and I'm very nervous. I'm on paxil and it never occured to me until yesterday that it would raise a red flag for the dermatologist. It's really more of an anti-anxiety medication then an anti-depressant, and I hope he'll take that into consideration and give me accutane anyways. Wish me luck! :redface:

T minus 14 days

My dermatologist appointment is exactly two weeks from today and I'm so excited! My skin's flipping out right now- I have new whiteheads every morning and the last two days my face looked sunburned and hurt soo bad. This morning I had three new pimples, less redness & my whole face is flaking off.
