This is honestly one of the hardest blog posts I’ll probably ever write. I’ve tried starting this post with about 6 different introductions, but I can’t seem to find anything that satisfies me. Maybe I’m just overthinking it (as usual). Kind of ironic since ‘overthinking’ everything kind of ties into this topic. So I’ve come to the conclusion, that I’m just going to type away my thoughts and hope for the best, that at the end, it kind of makes sense. The problem is that, I know what I want…

Today’s the 10th of May, which means April is obviously over, which also means I’ve been on the medication Isotretinoin for 3 full months. One, I seriously can’t believe it’s already MAY 2017, and two I seriously can’t believe I’ve been taking this medication for three months. I feel like I was just celebrating New Years a week ago?

21 Accutane acne pills down.. and about 161 more pills to go, before I’ve finished my acne treatment. Hopefully my first and only round of this treatment. I haven’t seen any drastic changes from last week to this week, almost not enough to even write about, but I’m going to share what’s changed and the side effects as usual. If you’re new to these updates, you should go check out Week 1, 2 and 3 to get caught up before reading this one! The Acne Changes and Updates Once you…

So, week 3 (technically week 2 of the Accutane acne treatment because I’ve only taken 14 pills so far, I accidentally counted the day before I started as week 1) has rolled around and I’m extremely happy to say that improvements have been made! After being on the treatment for 2 weeks, I’m surprised to see that my face is getting better. Lots of people on this treatment don’t see any improvement until the third or fourth month, so I’m very lucky that my changes have already started. No major…
