  1. I hope it goes well for you! I was reading your posts and we seem to be going through similar changes. It will be nice to have someone going through the process at the same time as me!
  2. As of tomorrow I will have completed one month of my Accutane course. So far it's really hard to say if I've seen much improvement. About the third week in, I got an initial breakout on my cheeks/jawline, chin, and around my mouth. I've never had an issue with blackheads before but in the past couple weeks the pores in my t-zone have been filled with them. i'm assuming it's just the medicine clearing out all the gunk in my pores.

I read your blog and saw what you eat with it, but I don't know if I'm willing to change my diet to have that much fat
  6. Hey everyone! This post is really long, but it's my first, so bear with me! So, I'm finally starting Accutane after literally years of putting it off (which I will get into later). I decided to start this blog because I personally was very skeptical of the drug and struggled with the idea of taking for a long time, and I know there are many others out there that feel the same way. I figured if I shared my journey then it may put others at ease, and I also want something to be able to track my p
