    Day 79

    ahh that's a low percentage. but i will hope for the best. i weigh between 120-125. i haven't weighed myself in a while. i'm unfamiliar with kg's, so is this a good thing?

    Day 79

    hey guys I haven't updated in 2 weeks because there wasn't a whole lot to report. I'm halfway through my third month now. Remember how my right side was always bad and my left was always good? pshh. well flip them around now. =( Just when I thought I was finally seeing the light, my left side breaks out. 6 on my left cheek over the course of one week. one on the left side of my chin, and one on my upper lip, that prolly wouldn't even be noticeable if I hadn't picked it...but made that loo
  3. it really depends on your type of acne. if you only get a pimple here or there occasionally, then you might be able to get away with spot treating. but if you break out randomly everywhere, anytime, you're better off applying all over. that way you prevent them as well as treat existing ones.
  4. hey! yes, $700 a month sounds right. i am on 60mg/day and pay $758.20 a month =( =( sucks, but totally worth it. i didn't have a lot of blackheads when i started, mainly just some on my nose. those pushed out on their own probably a month in? it was weird, one day i just got out of the shower and leaned into the mirror to do my inspection and all these little plugs were sticking out. so i took my towel and just rubbed off what i could, and tweezed the rest out. i had one little blackhead on my

    Day 66

    thank you! bluh yea! but it was funny cuz I was just saying "hmm maybe I should find an interest free credit card to pay my last 2 months" and one came in the mail the next day. So I just applied for that. Now I don't have to dump all my money out all at once.

    Day 66

    Hey! So Monday I went to the derm for the start of my 3rd month! Time is really flying He upped my dose to 60mg where I will stay. Oh, and guess how much that cost? ........ $758.20 Fuck! So far I don't see any difference in the way I feel. Someone told me I'm going to feel lazier. Not looking forward to that! My back pain has calmed down a lot. I think I mentioned in the last blog that I got a new bed. It's pretty amazing. An Icomfort memory foam with infused cooling gel? It's h

    Thank you! =) Glad I have another follower. I actually didn't take a pic last week for that reason. I think I can start taking them every other week now. I am about to post another blog since I didn't do one yesterday. Are you keeping a blog with pics? I will have to look for you! Good luck to you too =)
  8. aww you are so welcome! i'm glad to hear someone is actually following me =P i know before i started, i read as many accutane blogs as i could. i also started at the same time as a bunch of people on here, and that definitely helps because we can all talk about what we're going through. but even still, this site is wonderful for us who have emotional problems because of it. we can all relate to how it makes us feel. i think making your own blog or log is a great idea. make sure you take pict

  10. do your night time regimen a few hours before bed, that way everything is completely dry and you don't have to worry about it coming off on your pillow. also, it is fine to sleep how you normally lay, just make sure you have a CLEAN pillowcase. you can use a towel like he suggested above, but i would think that'd be uncomfortable.

    hey everyone not a whole lot to update this week, so this will be short. i do have a new side effect i got probably friday? i have a rash all over both arms and the tops of my hands. i've never had eczema before, but i'm assuming this is what this is? it doesn't hurt or itch, it's just red and gross looking and you can feel it when you rub your hands over it. i've been putting hydro-cortisone on it at night. during the day i can't do anything about it because i wash my arms & hands a

    Day 68!

    wow thanks for all the info =) i have another question maybe you can answer... i'm gonna run out of my pills too. 30 days from my last derm appt would be this saturday, so instead of making my appt on fri, they moved it to mon. so i will miss 2 days of pills. i'm very concerned. i'm gonna call the office tomorrow and ask if i can bump the appt up, but does this happen often? and is it a big deal to miss 2 days?

    oo i wanna use something for my PIH but i thought i'd have to wait til i was done. when do you put this on? and do you put it on before or after moisturizer?
  16. omg.. i know exactly what you're going through. you have it worse than i did though. first let me say that your family will love you no matter what, and they definitely will not judge you. i am sure from watching you hide inside all the time, they have to know that you're insecure about this. what helps is to talk to them about it. let them know what it's doing to you emotionally if they don't already know. and don't start out by just going bare faced all of a sudden. take it slow and maybe inst
  17. halfway through month 2! time is really flying. my next derm appt is nov 12th. i have a feeling my dose will be increased to 60mg. should i be worried? does your skin freak out when the dose goes up? i hope not =( once again i got lots of compliments from my family this weekend. it made me feel really good. but like always it jinxes me and i break out! ah! so i have a few on my chin today and one on the apple of my cheek. wah. i took pics today and comparing them to last week's, there
  18. depression is a side effect, but you should definitely report it to your derm. maybe you should call them and ask if you should come in sooner. i do get those days, but i am on an antidepressant, so it never gets to the point that i am actually depressed or crying. i just get bummed out sometimes. so if it's just mild sadness, you should be fine and can wait til your derm appt. but if it's so bad you actually are crying or you feel like you want to stay inside all the time.. definitely call
