    Nightmares About Acne

    I just talked briefly about my nightmares in my own post. I have no pimples but I do have several hyperpigmentations. I have nightmares that I get out of bed and look in the mirror and lots of pimples are there. But I also think about this for 100% of the time I am awake. I cannot stop looking at and thinking about my face skin. I am aware i should seek help. My doctor suggested I do yoga. That may be helpful for you. I run 7 miles a day and it's the only thing that keeps me remotely sane.

  4. Hello friends, Today is I think the 4th day of 120 mg and I felt like I was going to vom for much of the day and had no appetite. Also most importantly, I have a bunch of spots on my chin today!!! And I just got asked out on a date for a couple days from now. Do I agree to the date and just pray my skin will be okay or postpone? Or do I agree and cancel that morning if my skin looks bad? Thoughts?? Thanks for any input!
  5. Hi, so I deleted my previous post because it was a really long rant with TMI in it. It was from about 25 days ago I think. At that time my skin was still pretty bad. Long story short, my stats are that I am in my late 20s, I am 5'7", I weigh 120 lb., and I went on accutane for post-birth control acne. My accutane course has been: First month - 40 mg Second month - 80 mg Third month - 80 mg Fourth month - 120 mg Right now, I have 3 very very tiny white heads. I do, however, have lo
