  1. Wow, talk about a leave of absence... Anyways, I'm still completely acne free. I've been off Accutane for about a month now, and it feels great! Atleast 5 people a week tell me how good my skin looks, which feels great as well. My life is super hectic with the job I have at a local arcade and school, so sorry I haven't updated in a very long while (not that anyone noticed). Next time I remember to get on the computer, I will upload my AFTER pictures.
  2. Your scars are even starting to go away! That's awesome!
  3. Sorry I haven't updated in so long. Summer has brought on many distractions. My face is completely clear!!!! This is my last month of Accutane, and I should be done October 1st! I will have pictures as soon as I can get my camera some batteries.
  4. My dermatologist said that as long as my face doesn't attack me between now and August 6th, I will just finish up the pills I have, and then I will be done with Accutane! YAY! I accidentally left my accutane at home for 2 days when I was gone, so I missed five pills. I have a pimple on my chin, but that's it. I hope I can get off it soon. Then, all I will have left is my braces to get off and WHAM! I am a brand new woman. haha
  5. To anyone who is interested/anyone who cares, Zack is now officially my "boyfriend". We don't really like that word, so we are each other's "beloved". It's kind of one of those things where everything has fit together so well that we know God has something amazing in store for the two of us. I won't try to explain any further, but just thought I would update. I have about 6 puss producing pimples on my face. I didn't have any, and then BAM I had 6. I hope they go away within the next couple of
  6. I can't wait to see new pictures. I don't know what day you are on, but now that I am past 100 days, my face is really starting to clear up. Maybe it will be the same for you? But I am thinking it might take longer since you are on a lower dosage. Stay strong Bob.
  7. DAY 110 Wow, it's crazy that it has been that long. Here is my camp horror story...DUN DUN DUN I was sitting at a picnic table playing cards with a friend, and the side of my eyebrow started to burn. I thought I maybe had a bug bite, so I went in and asked my friend Emily if she saw one. She said she didn't see anything, but to put some cold water on my face to try and cool it off. I did what she said, and then as I was walking out of our cabin, my entire face started to burn from the inside th
  8. I am back from camp! I have some really weird experiences with my face to tell you all about...tomorrow. Not to mention a picture update! Thank God for the past two weeks.
  9. Seriously every time you put up new pictures your skin looks loads better. Keep your head up, it will all be gone before you know it.
  10. Wow, I love bumping my own log....not really. My skin currently has little bumps of pimples all over my face. It's not really that bad, it's just that lately it has been relatively clear, but all of a sudden my body decided to play cruel games on me. Only two more days of school left! But then I get to do summer assignments...that's no fun. This is the last summer assignment I EVER have to do (I think) and so I just try to look at it that way. I am starting to excersize more. We inherited a
  11. I started breaking out after about a week or two. I really started to notice the pores on my nose pushing stuff out within a week. Mid-June I will be approaching my 3 month mark. I am excited to see what my face will look like after I go to camp. I will be at camp June 7th-June 21st. I hoping that little amounts of sun will help my skin (I am already planning to stay in the shade on beach days). I have some big scabs under my chin, kind of on my neck. They are what used to be pimples, but now
  12. I went camping Wednesday and Thursday. I got some sun on my face, but I think that it helps my acne clear up. My face feels a lot better other than the fact that it's a little burnt. I wish someone would say something so I didn't have to keep bumping my own log...
  13. Wow, 16? I thought you were a lot older than that. Of course, people always used to (and still do) say that I look and act older than I am. I pass for a college student most of the time. I told someone I was a junior, and they were like "at UNR???".... not exactly. haha. I'm almost 18 and I still don't have my license...I would recommend you get it as soon as you can. Depending on others to get you places sucks.
  14. How many milligrams a day were you taking of Accutane? I'm sure you told us already somewhere, but I'm not really in the mood of looking through 21 pages of posts
  15. I'm on 80mg a day, and it's kicking my butt. I am always tired, and my lips are permanently dry. About twenty minutes after I put on Aquaphor they are back to peeling again. Just push through and don't let anyone see you sweat. haha. Looking at your first pictures and your most recent, you look so much better! I hope you are noticing the major improvements, because if you do, it will definitely keep your spirits up. So when are you supposed to be done with the Accutane?
  16. My acne is doing so much better this past week. The only huge problem I am facing is that I have spots of my face that peel, and then they leave a big red raw circle. I feel like a Twister game board with only red spots on it. My thrush (the stupid sore on the side of my lip) is back FULL FORCE. When I wake up in the morning, it feels like my mouth is sewn together because it drys. Hopefully it will go away relatively soon. My non-boyfriend Zack left today for 3 months (haha, my mom calls hi
  17. Wait until you are completely done with Accutane. You will break out more, I can almost guarantee it. Plus, I don't think that your dermatologist would allow it.
  18. I figure I might as well not expect to get my braces off until I'm 35. haha. I went to the dermo today. My vein was hard to find (again!) so now I have a wonderful bump on my arm that will more than likely turn into a nasty disgusting bruise. 3 cystic nodules today. YUCK. I haven't gotten any of those since before I started taking Accutane...one day at a time I suppose. So now I am off to take a short nap and then go play backround music for my school's artshow. THEN, I am going to see Cinde
  19. I didn't get my braces off today. To make a long story short, we haven't paid them off yet, and even if we had I wouldn't have gotten them off because they keep over correcting my teeth. One day...
  20. Today I figured out that I can't do my flouride treatment on my teeth because the accutane mixed with the flouride makes me gums bleed like crazy. No bueno. Oh screw it. I want to post pictures today AND tomorrow. I'll post acne progress pictures now, and tomorrow I will show you my new pearly whites DAY 53 Left Side (aka my good side) Right Side The Full Face Shot It looks the same to me except for less big red pimples...but as I am going past the third month, I am hoping for some dras
  21. Accutane has been pushing up the dirt that is in my pores on my nose...so I think it will get rid of them over time.
  22. I'm just saving them in case I don't get my new prescription in a timely matter so I don't have to go a day without taking it.
