    6 Month Accutane Journey Complete

    Hey Everyone, So its been some time since I posted last, been too busy sorry. Lots has happened. Not sure where to begin but here it goes. I found out by my new family doctor I have poly cystic ovaries, which is a contributing factor and probably the main cause to my acne. I was worried when I saw her because it was the middle of month 5 and I was still breaking out with a few pimples and also my menstrual cycle was all crazy. She told me I should be on birth control as treatment for the poly

    Accutane Journey - Week 17(Day 119)

    Thanks! Just saw your comment. Havent been on in a while. But things are looking good. I will post a blog shortly with pics! And defininately, I felt soo nervous starting and wasn't sure about going on it. seeing everyone's blogs really made me think it can happen. Now that its my turn, I feel great! Hope your journey on accutane is near the end & going good!!

    Finished Roaccutane...

    Yay! So glad to hear. I am finishing my last 3 pills and I am"cured" in a sense. Everything you stated here, I completely 100% agree with. I feel like a million bucks compared to before 6months ago. Do I think I will have pimples here and there, sure its normal. Do I want and expect to have the massive cysts I once had, hopefully and absolutely not! Overall, I was scared, nervous, very impatient and I'm glad its over!!

    I Would Love Your Opinion

    heyyy! how is everything? In a few days I will be starting my LAST month, and I cannot wait. It has come and gone so quickly now that I look back. And I couldnt be happier at how my face looks. It is acne free. Though scars remain and I hope in the next month that too will go a little bit. I can wear make up even though im generally dry, its not flakey looking or texture wise its soft. I havent been this happy about it in ohhh i cant remember.
  6. I am currently on accutane middle of month 5. And I havent really changed my diet either. My diet to begin with is not ideal but not bad. I eat meat, dairy and all sorts of things in moderation, so I have just been watching myself that im not eating fast foods or chips and sweets all the time to increase my cholesterol. I would say though that my stomache has become upset with even the slightest bit of dairy consumption( mostly milk ), and I do enjoy milk in my coffee and other beverages. So I h

    Accutane Journey - Week 17(Day 119)

    day 119 , woooooow! i cant believe i am here. I jut want to share with all of you embarking on this journey with me everything thats been going on. It hasn't been easy, let me tell you. I had days where i felt like complete and utter shit. Acne has taken over my life, to the point where I have lost friends dont keep in touch, my social life is crap, im not social at all, i say very little and go out only as far as down the street. I hated going to school, i felt so embarassed. But I stuck throug

    Still No Signs Of Clearing Up! Why!?

    Not to sound like a debbie downer, but it is a rollercoaster ride full of emotions. I am at the beginning of month 4 and still getting some active cysts especially on the cheeks and jawline. So dont be hard on your self they will come and go every so often... but everyone is different, so it may take a little bit for it to give.

    Day 91 - Week 13

    So it's been quite some time since I last posted and thats because not alot has happened for me to be updating. I'll fill you in anyway. Same old buldging cysts, and when I feel like my face is semi decent and they're starting to disappear, another comes along. I can most definately say I have come along way from where I was before I started accutane. There was not a single spot on my face that was not covered with acne/cyst and how red it was. I've noticed that the pimples are limited to my fac

    Week 15

    well Donnie Darko, I hope you and I both get rid of those effing horrible cysts that just wont seem to be going away. Every time I think my face seems to be getting better, I give it a few hours till a new peanut like nodule cyst appears and im back to feeling like you've just expressed yourself. Cheers to hopefully a clear, acne and cyst free face once and for all!

    Week 15

    I found this post to be hilarious to read. not because of what your going through as funny but so true in how you've expressed yourself and how probably most people on this site feel while taking accutane especially those with the cyststhatfeellikefuckingfrozenpeanutsundermyskin!
