  1. Here's a picture of me from the weekend!! Still totally clear and happy http://img.makeupalley.com/0/0/1/2/1089470.JPG
  2. So clearly I stopped writing in here. My skin is completely clear and I got my life back. Honestly, I've never been so happy. I broke up with my old boyfriend, had a wild single summer, and now am dating someone new & much better. I have my friends back because I finally go out again. Two days ago I took my last pill - I was on Accutane for 6 months. I can't lie, I'm terrified to be off of it, but honestly, if the acne comes back I will just go on it again. Besides dry lips, I suffered NO s
  3. Day 74 I am completely clear (crossing my fingers so I don't jinx myself). I have scars, but I do not have one active pimple right now. Eczema is pretty bad, and lips are dry as hell, but whatev. My skin is beautiful. Yay! This is the WORST summer ever. Here is my schedule: Mon/Weds: Organic Chem 8a-11a, Work 6p-10p Tues/Thurs: Organic Chem 8a-11a, Organic Lab 11:30a-2:30p Fri: Work 8-5 Sat: Work 8-1 Sun: Off But remember when summer used to be about sleeping in til noon, laying out all day,
  4. Day 60 So, tomorrow is my last exam. Junior year of college is almost over. I'm not very happy about it. I have had so much fun this semester! I am going to miss my roomates so much. Tomorrow my exam is chemistry. It covers 2 semesters worth of material aka 25 chapters. I am no where near ready... but it's not til 3pm tmrw, and it's only 9:30pm. I need to just bust my balls for the next like 17 hours (and sleep just a little bit). I have become a picture slut now that I have good ski
  5. Day 58 Picture update (makeup pics, still can't find my own camera): Me with my gay friend: http://img137.imageshack.us/img137/1029/genimage1ld0.jpg Me with my roomates (I'm on right): http://img505.imageshack.us/img505/8806/genimage2nd4.jpg Me with friends (I'm on right): http://img89.imageshack.us/img89/7948/genimagehp3.jpg Skin update: Skin was AWESOME for 2 wks (as you can see in pics). Now not looking so good... 2nd IB? Frustrating as helll! I haven't been taking good care of mysel
  6. Day 46 I have never been happier in my life. Honestly. Here's a pic from the weekend that shows how glowy/wonderful my skin looks. Once my camera is back in my hands I will post close ups but this kinda gives an idea. It's a little blurry and small, sorry. The other pics from the weekend were inappropriate to post on the internet I'm on the right! http://img518.imageshack.us/img518/4886/mecs8jw0.jpg Anyway - I <3 accutane! I am really bad at taking it at the same time, and sometimes
  7. Day 38 I am too busy lately to update consistently, and I miss reading everyone's updates... I just have NO time lately. Skin is looking awesome. Really. I have 2 tiny actives now. Lots of redmarks. My social life is out of control. I had become so used to being antisocial. Now I am making plans and doing things all the time. It's amazing how acne really did strongly effect my social life. Now it's great... I am actually able to make more girlfriends because I don't want to hide all
  8. Day 32 Yesterday I had my derm appt - she said my bloodwork looked great, and is keeping me on 60 mg! Woohoo! She said she probably wants to do 5 months rather than 6 since it seems to be going well, and I'm ok with that, but I'd still rather be on 6 just b/c I want to be on it as long as possible. I'd be on it forever if that was something people did! I mean, I can't because I will want to have a baby within the next 7 yrs, but.. if I could I would. The side effects are so minimal for me
  9. Day 28 My skin is greatt right now!! 2 active pimples (one on left temple, one on right jawline) - but they are really really tiny! Lots of redmarks but makeup covers those SO easily! I don't have my camera so I can't post pics but I will soon. Weds I went for my bloodwork. Oh please oh please let all of the things that they are measuring be good! Monday I will have my derm appt for my new prescription. I hope I stay on the 60mg bc it is working very well! I am going to have to 1 day w/o
  10. Day 24 I have some good news today. My skin... Looks... Good? Four days ago I was crying about it, and today it looks better than it has in a long time? This just goes to prove, everyone, that Accutane is a bumpy bumpy road. But, the cool thing is, even though you can really quickly break out and have a few bad days, you can also really quickly clear up and feel great! I know the breakouts aren't over. I'm trying not to get my hopes too high. And I really hope I don't jinx myself by bo
  11. Thanks for all the nice comments Brentkid, Lottielou, TylerEvans. Xoxo. Day 21 Still looking/feeling crappy but oh well. I need to get over myself. It's been 3 wks, so not enough to be better, but I just hope I start seeing results by end of April/beginning of May. Now that I know how to post pics I might post them everyday. So here we go... Another pic. This time: My Accutane Arsenal: http://img228.imageshack.us/img228/1516/ewewskinsk2.jpg Cortizone Cream (for my eczema that has returned
  12. Thanks for helping me with the pics!! You look really really great in your pics! Woo hoo!!
  13. Ok - PICS! Thanks to Tyler! Guys I'm warning you. They are bad. I truly went into a huge depression after seeing them. I didn't realize it was so bad. After showing you the ugliness I am going to post some ones of me with makeup and then me before the acne came to murder my spirit. Note to self - never again take acne photos after scrubbing and moisturizing...

  14. Um can you be my best friend? But seriously, I LOVE your log. You're awesome! I need to stop being so depressed about this acne all the time. I look in the mirror and I want to barf. My log is so negative, and I know that is just a cycle that makes me feel even worse. You're an inspiration to me!
