Day 70 Picture My skin has never looked worse!

I’ve heard that Accutane ~gets real~ around 60 mg. I wasn’t prepared to wake up with open sores and extra large cystic acne today. If you have a weak stomach stop reading now. I have also been experiencing extremely dry hands and feet.

Month 3 of Accutane 60mg

So I finally picked up this months rx. I hear things start getting real at about 60 mg. So far my previous side effects went away so I say bring it!

I am grateful for the coupon that I have from my dermatologist.

There is no way I would have been able to pay full price times two. My last update of the year is coming up and I am excited to see what 60 mgs can do.

Cute Natural 4B and 4C hairstyles done by me

The relationship is over. I need a haircut.

At the end of every real break up I feel the overwhelming urge to cut my hair, completely change my energy and have a brand new fresh start. The conclusion of my most recent relationship is no exception. Even though he has moved out and we have never discussed getting back together or anything like that, I think that I will not come to full acceptance that it is over until I get my haircut.

My ex-boyfriend loved my natural hair, and I used to lay in his lap and let him “do my hair”, which basically consisted of a nice scalp massage and twirling my tightly coiled hair around his fingers. In fact, I cut my hair off into a very low hair cut a few months into my relationship with my ex boyfriend and at that time we both agreed that it was over. I needed a new start. I cut off all my hair, but that was more like a temporary break- up and even though we had a unique set of circumstances (that I don’t want to discuss in this forum) we decided that our desire to be together was more powerful than the circumstances that prevented us from being together at that time. Here is the cut. I am confident in who I am. I have no attachment to my hair. I felt fierce with this style.

Somewhere down the line, we agreed that the desire to be apart was stronger than the desire to be together and that’s when we had to make the choice to go our separate ways. At any rate the relationship is over. I need a haircut… My apt is Saturday morning. I don’t know if I am returning to my relaxer, cut and color or if I am returning to the previous haircut. Decisions, decisions. My hair this morning.

Day 60 picture

image

I am taking 40 mgs of Absorbica isotretinoin. Month 1 I started with 30 mgs. Month 2, I took 40mgs. I am heading into month 3 and I will be on 60 mgs. I almost forgot to post these so I had to take the pictures in my car before work. I am not wearing makeup, just a ton of Chapstick. Have you identified the subliminal message in my acne update pictures? If not here it is put all together.
