Thoughts of Accutane

Well I’ve been thinking for some time about Accutane, but I always wrote it off because of all the bad things I’ve heard about it. One of the biggest reasons why I didn’t want to take it was because I heard it weakens your joints, and that’s not good for someone who does hard weightlifting like me. Although after I researched it enough I was able to find some people in the same boat as me (Like to work out) that took or were taking Accutane and they didn’t notice anything wrong with their joints while they were weightlifting. So after holding it off for so long and realizing that I could’ve even been well on my way to clear skin from the time a started this blog (2 months ago) till now, I’ve decided to give Accutane a try and pray that it works.

I have had a couple of friends who had taken Accutane, and let me tell you it was a brutal process for them. I remember they had to put moisturizer on their faces every 10 minutes because their skin was so dry. Their faces were always super and unbelievably flakey to, it was disgusting, but I’ve thought about it and I’m ready! I had a physical and my blood work done and everything is fine my Doc says! So I have an appointment with my Derm tomorrow, and I’m anxious to see what he’ll say and what strength of The Tane (Accutane) he’ll give me!

Well I know I said this day would never come, but I am just finally fed up with my acne; it hurts physically, it hurts mentally, it sucks waking up in the morning to a face full of acne, and I’m ready for it to be gone once and for all!

So I’ll be sure to keep you updated on everything, and if there is any advice or recommendations for good moisturizers from your experience with Accutane I’d be happy to hear them!
