  1. Sorry. Just figured how to post the photo's. Haven't figured out the comment section yet. I'm on day 3 of accutane. I'm taking 40mgs once a day.
  2. YUCK!! This is me day 3. (I take my 3rd pill with dinner tonight)
  3. I tried that and couldn't figure out how to do it. LOL
  4. I've been scouring the site looking for an answer and wasn't able to find one. I'm hoping someone can help me. I have a technical question regarding photos. I understand that photos can not exceed 50kb 150x150 pixs if I want to post them. When i upload them from my camera to my laptop they are saved at 504 kb 2304x1728 pixs. I don't know how to reduce their size. I'm not able to upload them to my gallery at their current setting. How do I reduce their size or is there something else that I'
  5. Thanks for the info. Maybe I'll only take 1 a day. LOL We only get the occasionaly tornado here in Connecticut (1 every couple years.) When I lived in Colorado I freaked the first time the tornado siren went off. I was calling friends back East wiggin out. :D It was a new experience to say the least. I'd rather deal with a hurricane, at least you know it's coming. Of course the ones we deal with in the NorthEast are nothing compared to the ones that hit down South. Day 3 As f
  6. Amberlynn / Thanks. Yeah, I'll have to remember that my back will take longer to clear. As long as it eventually clears I'll be happy. Trenem / I'll keep posting. Thanks for stopping by. MTG / What can I say. Your log was one of the reasons I kept coming back to this site. LOL Julz / I'll try to get some pics posted tonite, not sure if I'll have time though. I agree with you in that I think acne is much more emotionally troubling than physically. It's much more of an issue for me in th
  7. Hey Charchar. Just wanted to stop and see how you were doing and let you know I finally started my accutane today. Hope all is well
  8. Hey Taren. Hope you feel better soon. I've noticed a lot of posters here complain about getting sick (colds) and they have trouble shaking them. I'm not looking forward to getting sick. Well, that and all of the other potential side effects LOL. Hope you don't have another delay in getting your meds. Thanks for posting in my log, I'll keep it up to date.
  9. Hi Julian. Just wanted to leave a post and say I also took my first pill today so i'll be there with you for the ups and downs. I'm 35 and have been going rounds with acne since I was about 12 years old. Feel free to ask anything. Good Luck.
  10. Hey Amber. Thanks for being the first to post on my log. YEH!! I took my first pill today and will do my best to keep up on my posts. Hope all is going well for ya.
  11. Hey Matt!! Thanks for your help. I got it to work. Sorry to hear about the hand rash. Hope things are going better. Glad the band is going so well.
  12. Thanks for letting me vent. Just wanted to say that I picked my script up today and took my first pill. YEH!! Looks like it worked out for this month. LOL
  13. DAY 1 I'm so excited!!! I finally started my accutane journey today. YEH!!! Well, I'm actually taking Sotret (Isotretinoin generic) starting at 40mgs once a day. I took my first pill with dinner tonight. For those interested I'm a 35/f. I've been afflicted with acne since about 12 years old. Over the years my face has pretty much cleared up (still have blackheads on nose and chin area) but I have moderate acne/cystic acne on my back. After all this time I've gotten used to not bei
  14. Hey Trenem. Hope everything is going well.
  15. I'm sorry to hear you are having so many problems with iPledge. I know what you mean about being on the other side of things. I've been looking forward to starting my accutane journey and it keeps getting put off by the iPledge disaster. Went to the derm on Friday and thought I was going to get my script but I have to have to preg test done thru blood work and the lab was closed by the time I left the appointment. I'm going tomorrow am but that's day 4 of my 7 to get the script filled. If t
  16. Glad to hear things are going so well for you. I'm 35 and have been wagin a war with acne since I was around 11 years old as well. Over the years my face has kind of cleared but my back is bad. I'm supposed to be starting accutane but have been having trouble coordinating the new iPledge system to my derms schedule. LOL.. Yeah! I've done a lot of reading on this site and have seemed to notice alot of people complaining about lingering colds so it sounds like you're not alone. Again, I'm g
  17. It's geared towards females who take accutane. The drug causes serious birth defects if you get pregnant so this is the FDA's way of avoiding lawsuits. "iPledge" not to get pregnant. As a female I had to sign waivers stating I understood the effects of the drug and promised to use 2 forms of birth control during my course of treatment.
  18. Bear with me. I just need to vent my frustion with people who will understand. I went to my derm about 2 months ago because of persistant acne / cystic acne (moderate) on my back. I've been dealing with it for about 14 years. We decided to go with accutane. YEH!!!!! Well not really. Gotta have your blood work done first. Okay, I do that. Cholesterol is a little high go see your regular Doc first, Okay, he says not to worry about it, accutane is a short term drug, the effect it has
  19. Oh My God.... You Freakin Cutie!! Love the hair cut. Have an appt with my derm tomorrow. Should be getting my very own script for accutane (or some generic version). I'll let you know how it goes.
  20. Shunts??? I enjoy reading your log.. Where did you go????
  21. Henry, you look fantastic. WOW If only I was a few years younger and lived a few miles further south. LOL.
