  1. I ask myself the same questions. It is frightening to think about what will happen within the year after taking accutane. Congrats on having a little over a month to go. I am on my last month too. It is exciting to think about and nervewracking at the same time.
  2. Hey one littleone. How are you liking the 80mg dosage so far? Sounds like you just had a little breakout then things are subsiding. I hope so at least. How much longer are you on 'tane for?
  3. I know I am a little late but Congratulations on the new job. That must be very exciting Glad to hear that things are going so well. Happy Hundreds!
  4. Hurrah for one month left! Hopefully it jets on by. Glad to hear that your eyes are doing a lot better!
  5. Quick Update on Day 156 Beginning of Month 6 Iffy News. My doctor was really happy with how the treatment was going, however, he said that one more month would be in my best interest to reduce the rate of relapsing. I guess deep down I know that this is the best but I am kind of bumming. hah! I really wanted to be done but alas I am still on this crazy 'tane train. Angela - Thanks! One more month to go, but at least I know that this is a confirmed date now. How are things going with y
  6. Day 146 Get `er done! Haven't updated in a while but I am still alive and kickin'. Good news is that I am potentially done in a little over a week. I go to see my doctor on October 18th and from there we will make a decision. I can tell you one thing. I am definitely hoping it is time to be finished. Acnewise, my face is doing well. I get the occasional break out. I don't think that I need to be too worried that I am still having little breakouts as it is a HUGE improvement from where I be
  7. Angela I guess what I meant to say it that every scar seems so noticeable right now. I do believe it is just cause the accutane is causing the skin to thin out. I think once I am done and the skin gets back to normal, it will not be as noticeable. I hope! I hope I did not freak you out with what I said. Yes, Gaga was amazing. Semi Precious Weapons = pretty crazy and interesting, haha! Tamara Thanks for the words of support and widsom. I think I am going to make an appointment with the opt
  8. Hey Good to hear from you. Also glad to hear you are doing well, aside from the pain caused from getting your appendix removed. I hope that subsides for you soon. You are almost halfway done, that is something to look forward to. It sounds like it is working really well for you. A few little breakouts are nothing compared to the type of acne we used to have to deal with. Keep us updated!
  9. haha, so I am not the only one? I even have had someone ask me at work once ( as a joke). I just laughed and politely said no. Glad to hear about the compliments! It is always nice to hear. I think it may even be better to hear it from a cosmetician because they work with makeup and skin all day.
  10. Hey Tamara! Glad to hear everything is well on the 'tane front aside from some of the not so friendly side effects. Let us know how your eyes feel after a few days of treatments and if the blepharitis lets up any. I am also very happy that it has not effected your eysight at all. I have been having lots of trouble with my eyes through this process, perhaps going to an optometrist would be a smart idea.
  11. Thank you all for the wonderful comments! I have not been on here as much as I have wanted to lately but when I come back it is great to see everyone's well wishes and to catch on on your logs. Day 117 So to be honest, I am feeling a little off this week so excuse me if this is an abnormally negative post. Feel free to end reading right here if you were looking for a positive, upbeat read. Sorry fellow 'taners. My face is kind of "iffy" right now. I am not getting too many breakouts,
  12. Amazing! Is month 5 going to be your last month? I am starting month 5 pretty shortly as well, and I am pretty sure it will be my last. I hope. Glad to hear you got your confidence back!
  13. I have noticed the same thing. My foundation is not setting into my skin the way it used to. It actully almost looks like a layer above my skin and is noticeable, it will not blend properly. It is an annoyance but I just put it down to the medsication thinning out the skin. I have no clue what to do either. I tried a new foundation but it does not seem to make a difference. Let me know if you find something that works.
  14. I am glad to hear the topicals are working for you. Keep us update on the results of your blood work and what your final decision is! A trip to Florida sounds exciting! Are you going for an end of summer vacation?
  15. Your skin looks amazing! How are you enjoying month 3 so far?
