    Kim's Log

    Hey he Kim how's it going; did you make it to book club?! I have just read your comments on the 4th month being the golden month ..I think am on (roughly) day 45 and have just had my dose pushed up to 40mg.. I too am going to aim for day 100 and *hopefully* wake up some day in month 4 and be seeing improvements! Hope you're not too cold X
  2. Hi all, hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and New Year. I was off work for a couple of weeks ..it was nice to have a break (I work in a school) ..and even better ..I had time to let my face that I had pulled and picked to pieces, to heal. It is SO sad that that is the first thing I think about when I have any form of time off, is the amount time my face has to heal! EVERY single weekend I get home on a Friday and my first thought is that I have 3 nights sleep before I next have to go to work
  3. Hiii guys! How is everyone doing? I have officially been on the Roaccutane for just under 2 months. I was back to work this week after 2 weeks off over Christmas ..I swear I dream every night these days about stroking my hands down smooth beautiful cheeks and over a smooth flat chin ...then I wake up and reality hits and I realise ..the acne, the spots, the flat, open red sores are still there. Roaccutane is definitely working. I saw my derm on Monday and she said if looks good and I've been
  4. Hi guys, apologies for my lack of blogness lately, I broke up forms school (I work in one) on the 20th, and have been so busy with Xmas and family stuff, I've hardly been on! My journey seems to be going okay ..only had one serious acne spot to worry about, but obviously being the way I am ..I ripped it off my face as quickly as I could and dug and dug and I'm left with an almighty beauty of a scab to keep me company this holiday! Ciara keep going. The grease WILL go and I've found with the R
  5. Hey Ciara! So sorry for delayed reply - broke up from school on the 20th and it's just been non stop family/XMas stuff since! Slowing down now though. Didn't sort things out with the WBC, unfortunately it looks like they're going to stay low but if they get any lower, I'll have to come off the Roaccutane as it makes me prone to picking up pretty much everything going round! Especially working in a school, my immune system doesn't need the extra stress. Not seeing the derm again till the 6th Ja
  6. Thanks everyone for sharing your experiences. It is really refreshing to read other people's experiences and realise i'm not alone in feeling like this. I work in a school and I walk round every day with massive red open sores on my face that I have picked and it literally seems that everyone around me has the most purest, clearest skin i've ever seen! Until I discovered various blogs etc, I thought I was a massive freak for feeling the way I did. In Sept Nov 2011 I was signed off worth wit
  7. Hiya Ciara, Your log has made me laugh! I guess you must be super excited to be on the Roaccutane! I've been on it now for 4 weeks and am in the UK, and I think i've noticed a difference in my skin. I had quite mild acne to begin with but I had tried literally everything under the sun - antibiotics, topical creams, chemical peels, red and blue light therapy - the lot. I think it was because of this that my GP referred me to a dermatologist (NHS) but the waiting list was something like 2
  8. Hi all! Day 16 if Roaccutane ..I thought that in the last few days my acne has definitely been better and I don't think I've had any sever acne spots for a couple of weeks but now I have a massive bruiser on the left side of my chin/mouth ..I'm so annoyed, it's so painful and I keep squeezing and scratching away at it. Also have some news I could potentially be gutted about ..both the private and NHS doctors ordered for me to have full bloods done at the GP and I went yesterday to have them
  9. Hi all! Day 9 of Roaccutane and I'm not sure I've noticed any difference yet whatsoever. I'm still breaking out exactly the same as I was, I'm having no side effects at all and I'm beginning to get super paranoid it's not going to work!!! I know it seems to be dependent on the individual as to what results you have and how quick but I'm sure I should have had results by now surely?? I'm getting so anxious that it's not going to work, I'm getting back into my old habits of picking and bein
  10. HI all! Apologies if a bit of my post is repeated from my previous one, I wanted to start a Roaccutane log and put it in the correct subtopic. I have tried everything there pretty much is when it comes to combating acne. My skin is still crazy bad. My acne is bright red, under the skin lumps, with no head and my picking ..whilst it's better ..when I have something to pick at, i'll pick at it. I end up with open red sores all over my face. My anxiety is pretty much under control and
  11. Hi all, It's been a while since I posted on here but thought i'd not only update on my situation but I also have a few questions and would love some other's perspectives or experiences. In October 2012, I was signed off form my job in recruitment for a few weeks with anxiety and depression and it was around this time that my acne got particularly bad, and has been bad ever since. I ended up handing in my notice and giving up the job altogether. I moved home for a bit and left my flat in

  13. Hi guys, This is a very hard topic for me to reach out about but I could really do with some coping strategies, words of wisdom, encouragement, anything. I have had sever anxiety problems for the past year and gave up my job in recruitment last November - it was around this time that I developed moderate acne. My anxiety was so bad in February I stayed in my flat for 3 weeks straight. I have repeatedly tried to start 3 jobs and haven't even been able to go in on the first day. They were all
