I forgot about this blog...Bassis, thanks for reminding me and for your thoughtfulness.
I sort of only started this thing because I anticipated being in dire need of support while on Accutane, and I certainly wasn't going to solicit comfort from classmates. Honestly, though, there's never really much to report.
My hands and arms are very, very dry, and there's some sort of rash on them that I'm sure stems from the dryness. My face isn't terribly dry, though. My skin STILL isn't clear, but I'm pretty confident that I will be by June, and that's fine by me.
I'm on 60 mg now...because I told my dermatologist that I didn't want to have to drive back up here from home over the summer for 2 monthly appointments. I've been put on a higher dose to finish my course sooner. Now I'll probably only have one appointment over the summer, and I was told that I could do it over the phone/through the mail. My current dermatologist is so much more relaxed than my old one, who avoided Accutane like the plague.
I'm bummed that I won't be able to go to the pool during the day for the first half of the summer, as my skin will be sensitive. Oh well...
I hope everyone's had a good month since my last post!
