  1. Not sure if this was posted somewhere else already, but Cetaphil is on sale this week at Walgreens July 20th-26th 2008 (at least in TN it's on sale). It's like 6.99, which is really good. Just thought I would share the good news. Thanks! (If I've posted this in the wrong place please feel free to move it.)
  2. Day 18: My eyes are dry, My eyes are dry, My eyes are dry. I was miserable yesterday. I just wanted to cry, not because I was sad, but because I wanted my eyes to feel better. I think my eyes feel better when they have contacts in them. My eyes have this continuous bloodshot look. Fe said they look yellow. What? Yellow? Isn’t that a bad sign or something? So far my vision has been okay, but there have been a few times when I have felt like I had to tell my brain to focus my eyes
  3. Hey Brian, First of all thank you for stopping by my log/journal. I just finished reading about your journey thus far, and I think it's unfortunate that your length of time on Accutane has been extended. Try to think of it this way... It might suck to not be able to drink for like 2 months while you are in School, however it would suck even more if you had to spend the entire semester concerned about your acne. (Although I guess alcohol could wash away that concern from time to time...lol)
  4. Day 17: I’m praying that things continue to go as well as they are currently going. My complexion has really started to clear up. I’m pleasantly surprised and thrilled. I have my 2nd pregnancy test next week, well actually I guess it’s my 3rd since they make you take one when you sign up for the program and then again when the Dermatologist actually writes out your prescription. I really hope my Derm doesn’t change my prescription. I’m not sure I’m even going to see her whe
  5. Just to follow up on the questions left by the other Acne.org family members that have posted in my journal, yes I said family members (although I’m pretty sure I’m not related to anyone else on Acne.org). I figure we are all suffering from very similar conditions, so it makes us all kind of like 2nd or 3rd cousins or something…. HEY! Just go with it okay. I am following Sid99’s advice and dodging depression “like a bullet†. Honestly I haven’t had any sad days. I feel ext
  6. Day 15- Has anyone missed me? I guess not, well anyway. It’s been a few days since I’ve been able to write. Life at work has been hectic and I recently started working out with a personal trainer, so I’m pooped when I get home in the evenings. Needless to say I haven’t had time to write. I’ve had lots on my mind, though…. First I am pretty sure I’m allergic to Visine. That really sucks, b/c when I first wake up my eyes are EXTREMELY dry. Oh they hurt. Has anyone else notic
  7. Hey! I don't know if anyone is paying attention, but on day 8 I mentioned one new bump on my eye lid and one beside my bottom eye lid. Well I think it's a rash. I looked a little closer and it appears to be several little bumps. Oh DEAR. I'm not sure what's causing it. It could be any number of things. My first guess would have to be the Visine. So I guess I'm going to stop using it for a few days. The odd thing is the rash is only on my right side. I'll keep you posted. Let's pray it goes awa
  8. Day 10- One Hundred and Forty One Pills on the wall One Hundred and Forty One Pills, take one down…. swallow it now….. One Hundred and Forty Pills on the Wall. Yep and that is exactly where I am, 140 pills left to go. The great news is I finished my very first 10 pack of Amnesteen pills!!! Let’s take a trip back down memory lane… to the day I finally went to pick up my prescription…… Okay it’s not really far down memory lane, but indulge me. I put off getting m
  9. Hold up, wait a minute.... I truly appreciate those people who post in my journal/log. Tons of hugs for even reading my random thoughts. I just want those who stop by to know that 9 times out of 10 I will respond to you on your own log. If you don't have one then I'll respond here. Responding on your log gives me an excuse to read about your journey. I'm a procrastinator and I know if I respond to you on my own log the chance of me ever making it over to your page is minimal. So posting in you
  10. Day 9- Life is expensive!!!! So in the short term my decision to take The Pill is costing me more money then I thought. My monthly Dr’s visits plus the medicine plus the moisturizing stuff and vitamins really add up. However over the long run, if this Pill really works then it should minimize my long term cost. Yep, the bumps just keep on coming I have two new small bumps in places I’ve never noticed bumps before. One on my upper eye lid and the other one is right below my l
  11. Hi stellar88, Thank you for stopping by my journal/log or whatever you want to call it. I am so thankful I am not the only one concerned about the hair side effects. I felt so vain writting that.... So far my hair has done okay (but it's only been 9 days), all I can do is to continue to moisturize it daily, drink plenty of water (which so difficult to do) and take my Biotin vitamin. Have you studied or heard if Biotin truly helps hair/nails? I will definitely check out the website you recomm
  12. Day 8- I have like 18 million different topics to write about since it’s been 5 days since my last entry. But I will spare you the incessant rambling and stick with the high points. I have a small confession to make. I’m still using my Tazzy. Not everyday but most days. It’s hard for me to give it up. I mean come on, it’s not easy to give up a BFF. Especially when you have five brand new bumps on your face. Tazzy helps minimize scarring and speeds up the whole pimple cycle.
  13. Day 3- OMG! Fe and I went to Wallyworld, which is what I call Wal-mart b/c it is truly a world all by its self, yesterday to stock up on the essential moisturizing products for my body, lips and eyes and spent almost $50. I only purchased 5 products. Who knew keeping your body moisturized was going to cost so much . I’m not a big fan of Wallyworld, but I saved about $15 buy purchasing my stuff from there instead of at Walgreens . I spent forever in Wallyworld. I asked Fe for her opi
  14. Hi Sid99, Thanks for stopping by my regimen log and showing me support! I will definitely be ducking and dodging anything that looks like depression! I hope things continue to go well on your journey. I’m not sure about the tiny bumps you are experiencing around your nose, but I attribute every weird thing to That Pill, even if I shouldn’t. I’m sure things will clear up soon, so don’t be concerned. Worry only makes things worse. CrimsonandCreamDiva
  15. Day 1 & 2- Yeah I know… I just posted Day 0 yesterday but there’s a story…. See I typed Day 0 two days ago and I just didn’t have time to actually post it. Sooo I posted it yesterday and decided today I would post 1 and 2 together so I can catch up with where I actually am. I did it. I took The Pill. I’m proud of myself. (I only postponed it like everyday last week) Huh? You ask why I postponed it. Well it’s only b/c I’m a big scaredy cat! Yep! I admit it.
