    Livi's Hope

    DAY 58 Some improvement. Face still bumpy. Very dry skin. Does anyone else have a strange texture? All my pores are large. Whatever. I'm just trusting that everything will get better with time. I wish I could fast forward six months. I have taken on a couple creative projects. Redecorating my room is on the top of my list. I just finished painting the walls a beautiful sage green. Its time to be the artist that I know I am. Peace and love.

    DAY 42 The meaning of life day! My face still seems like a mess. Its so nice to be home. My brothers make me laugh constantly. I'm not going back to school next semester. I'm going to stay home for a semester, get a job, redecorate my room, do all those things that I never made time for like art and nature. Sage green walls. Looking forward to it.

    scar treatments...does anything really work?

    I'm guessing your scarring is not mild, considering the time and money you've put into treatments. Have you considered being more gentle and just using something like Silkia Camellia oil and maybe a retinoid such as retin a? I'd recommend doing a search for Camellia oil.

    DAY 31 Through a month of Accutane! I definitely had an initial breakout. My skin is starting to look less clogged and some of the IB is fading. I'm still breaking out though. Just give it time. I'm sad that I have high cholesterol. Especially because its around the holidays. Darn. I think I'll do my own baking. I want to make heart healthy gingerbread people. I bet there are a lot of good recipes for healthier holiday treats online. Hint: Substitute honey for sugar, some studies

    MEMORY LOSS AND ACCUTANE AND TIREDNESS

    I haven't noticed any memory loss but I have been more tired than usual. I would think that if you are tired you might not think as well. My advice: water and sleep. All the best.

    DAY 28 Things are going so well! Skin texture is getting better. The purging must be ending. Still exhausted. During my nap today I had a dream that I was 007 James Bond. That was fun. Finals are looming on the horizon. Whatever. I'll survive. Peace.

    I WANT IT!!

    Ok here's what I did. I have seen 4 derms. Finally after the third on I was sick of not getting what I knew I needed and deserved. I wrote down all the reasons that I had for Tane and was prepared to list them off. -many years of dealing with persistant acne -no meds have worked -family history -frustrated, exhausted -difficult to study She gave it to me! I think it helps that I had a female derm. If she refused I was prepared to say that I was going to see as many different derms as it

    DAY 25 My face texture is slightly better. Still breaking out though. I have been using Camellia oil on a couple places on my face. It doesn't make me break out and seems like a good moisturizer. Once all the acne is gone I'll use it all over. I wish this IB would chill out. My face is such a mess. A friend told me that my face looks better. I don't see it but that was nice of her. If anyone has some advice to help with the IB that would be great. I'm skipping a pill here and ther

    Popping Spots On Accutane...

    You don't need to pop a pimple for it to heal. Not a good idea, especially on Accutane. Could cause a scar. As for the cuts that are there maybe a little neosporin would help them heal.

    Wierd healing

    I'm worried about the way that pimples are healing. A couple look like red, wierd, slightly raised scars instead of flat red marks. Has this happened to anyone else? I'm on Accutane. Does this happen with Tane?

    DAY 22 Oh my god! I had a such a fright yesterday. My derm called and left a message on my phone saying that she needed to talk to me about the results from one of my bloodtests. I freaked out. I couldn't call her back because it was after business hours. I was so scared that I would have to stop taking tane for one reason or another. Luckily my friend (who just finished his Accutane treatment and looks great!) calmed me down and told me that his cholesterol went way up when he started co

    Am I a canidate for Accutane?

    I would do it in a heartbeat. Years of constantly worrying about your face is ridiculous. I should know. I started Accutane 20 days ago. Its not an easy road but it will be worth it in the end.

    DAY 20 I noticed today that my makeup looks better. Usually I put it on in the morning and have to brush powder over the top several times throughout the day to reduce the shine. I haven't done that once today. Less oil equals less shine. That's encouraging. My appointment to renew my prescription is scheduled for four days after my current prescription will run out. That's a little inconvenient but I'm not worried. I finally got up the motivation to really start my project in sculptur
