Day 55

I have to admit, I am very pleased. 11 days on my diet and 5 days on 75 mg Spiro. My skin is still 'purging' so there are a lot of little pimples--almost rash like. But as far as cysts and pain? My skin is doing surprisingly well. It feels smooth and there is no tossing and turning at night, trying to find a way of sleeping that doesn't put pressure on certain spots on my face.

I do wish I had less hyper-pigmentation though. Luckily, my actual scarring is minimal.....but the hyper-pigmentation in my skin is really bad. My dermatologist says that because of the tone of my skin, my body hangs onto the pigment longer....might also have something to do with my genetic condition. Eventually, he says I can get some type of laser treatment.

At any rate, it's irritating cause it makes it really hard to gauge how well/badly my skin is actually doing. Some days I just stare in the mirror and wonder what's acne and what's a fading mark of a long-gone pimple. Oh well.
