  1. they started me out on 20 mg a day and I was suppose to go to 40 mgs for month 2. But I told by doctor that I had a couple of headaches, so she kept me at 20mgs for month 2. Then for month 3 they transferred me to another doctor and he asked about my headaches and kinda freaked out. but he still up'd my dosage to 40. I started 40 mgs on Saturday- Got a headache sunday night.. so I didn't take my medicine that night, then I took it this morning and now my headache is back. I am so bummed because
  2. I am starting in a month! And I am SO EXICTED! You look great! Congrats!!
  3. Considering I've wasted all my money on things that never worked, and my skin hasn't looked it's best in 6 months, and I have a pageant in five months, I think it was a Godsend, thank you very much.
  4. They are going to give me the aquaphor for free, and they gave me a lot of cetaphil samples. How is the treatment going? Did you have a bad initial breakout?
  5. Well, I went to the derm yesterday and she is starting me on accutane in 1 month! I didn't have to even bring it up! I was so worried that she would want me to try everything else that I had tried in the past all over again, I was sooo wooried. Now I am stress free. She gave me all the Info and the IPlege book. I just can't wait to get this all done and over with and finally have clear skin! Any advice from the accutane veterans? I would appreciate it! Thanks!
  6. Actaully Yaz is a birth control that clears the skin, it blocks testosterone (I think) or it doesn't have much testosterone in it. I can't remember which of the 2. I've been on Otho Cycline and it cleared me up for 3 years, then yesterday I was prescribed Yazmine and Accutane. She said it would help with the acne. So it could be your breakout from Accutane, but who knows everyones body reacts differently. Good Luck!
  7. Wow, I am starting accutane in a month! Skin looks wonderful! I hope I have the same results! Goodluck!
  8. When I had mild acne, that stuff never worked, in fact it made it worse. I used a product called Acne Free, it's like proactive but for some reason it really worked! It really helped clear my skin when I had mild to moderate acne. It is a little drying so I would use a moisturizer. I used Hope in a Jar from Sephora. It really made my skin look and feel great! I would also recommend Cetaphils moisturizer. Good luck!!
  9. Corrections for the above: -I'm 24 -I've done more than most people that have lived to 100 -If you knew about the Clark Kent/Superman analogy, you would understand the last quote you quoted starting with "Overall, people..." But you are just 15 though haha. -When you grow up you will realize how much time you wasted worrying about how you look Obviously if you weren't worried about the way you look, you probably wouldn't look so pumped up. What are the muscles for... just for looks right,

  11. Generally, I think this is good advice, albeit delivered in a high-and-mighty way. Not just in the way of getting a bf/gf, but just in being a healthy, happy human being. However, anyone (man or woman) should be careful, for there's a thin line between confidence and arrogance. If you can manage all of the above without turning into a pompous ass, I'd say you're good to go.
  12. Okay, I've had acne since I was a teenager. My family physician would prescribe antibiotics and different creams and gels for me. None of them worked... at all. She then put me on birth control to see how that would do. It worked quickly! I have been on birth control for 3 years now. But for the past 6 months my skin has started to get bad and then worse. I am starting to get acne really bad again. Huge cysts that hurt so bad. They are along my chin and my forehead. Also I am going to be in a st
