    Hey, I'm Laura but my friends call me Mo. It's a weird nickname, I know. =] I'm 23, and I'm originally from Atlanta, but moved to California about 3 months ago with my Sailor Husband. I have had Acne for 7 years. I'm about to graduate Beauty School for make up artistry. I'll definetly be posting updates! Thanks for stopping by!
  1. Hope everything gets better for you! I started a little more than 2 weeks ago and my derm started me on 20mg a day to minimize the IB. It sounds like the high dose is shocking your system!

  2. So, I was havin seriously issues with the accutane, after a week. i called my derm and he told me to go off of it. That was 3 days ago, and I see him tommorow. I am so nervous/scared. I hate the accutane because of the side effects, but I want to be clear. It's very confusing!!!! Just wanted to vent.
  3. Thatks for your encouragement! I needed it. =]

  4. LOL. I totally agree. Everything is teen acne except adult acne. AND I'm 20, so Im neither. 21+ adult 18- teen.. would the make a 19 & 20 section ROFL.
  5. Thanks for the advice on my blog! I really want to stick it out. Stupid Derm wasn't open today either!! I will definetly try those supplements.

  6. The side effects really aren't hyped. I am having side effects such as depression, chapped lips, dry skin, achey, bad sleep cycle. I didn't have any of these symptoms before I started, granted I think maybe I'm just not reacting as well as most. Just an FYI.
  7. I didnt take my 40mg this morning, and I am feeling SO much better. No migraine, no crying spells, not so achey either. I took 40mg last night, and I will take 40 tonight. I am going to call my derm tommorow. Thanks for the advice! I have never felt so crappy in my life, and it really dcared me. I wonder if it's like an adverse or allergic reaction. I don't want to stop completely because I really want this acne gone! Thanks again!!!!!
  8. Im 5 days in, really started to notice today. Don't lick your lips. It makes it worse.
  9. SO I started Amnesteem (sp?) exactally 5 days ago. I really don't think I can do this. I am on 80mg a day (40mg 2xday). The side effects are killing me. I have a permanent migraine, and I hate light. I wear my sunglasses during everything. I keep crying randomly, and I'm military spouse so I don't know if anyone understands how hard it is for me to get an appointment with my dermatologist. Can I lower my doseage to 40 a day. I just started, and I don't want to sound like I know better than my De
  10. Thanks, good luck with the Tane to you too! It's nerve racking but, I hope it's worth it!

  11. Best of Luck to you Mo! I just started 2 weeks ago and am going though my first initial breakout. It suck but it will get better! Keep positive and don't give up!

    Before Treatment

    These are pictures of me before starting Accutane. They're a little embarassing, especially the one with the ridiculous bed head. =]
