I haven't posted in so long! School and getting ready for college has consumed my life just a bit.
So, I've been taking pictures at the end of each month to record my progress since when you see your own face everyday, you don't notice the changes as much. I was really, really surprised when I put all the pictures together. I took the first two pictures with my webcam which I wish I hadn't done since the quality isn't nearly as good as my phone.
I'm not wearing any make-up in these pictures. They are not retouched. Kinda refreshing from all the ads where the models are so obviously wearing make-up or are retouched, no?
You may notice that it's actually been five months since I first started Accutane. This is because when I went in for my November appointment, I was sick and it showed up as a high white count on my blood tests, so they took me off the medicine to make sure it wasn't Accutane causing it. All the tests they made me take (more blood-tests, x-rays, other tests that would qualify as TMI) ended up dragging out pretty much the entire month so I started back up again in December.
So what do you think? I think there's been some pretty good progress. I have two more months to go, and a lot of the time most of the clearing up takes place after you get off the medication. Perhaps I'll finally have truly clear skin? Can't wait!
