Accutane and all that comes along with being on it.

I started taking Accutane on July 20th and my skin has not been the same since. Ive had acne for going on 15 years not and it hasn't gotten any easier over the years. I reached the end of my rope back in June and decided it was time to try one last treatment. Accutane was a medication I had heard about but not done much research about. After making an appointment with my dermatologist to go on the medication I started to look into all the side effects of the medicine. There is a long list of possible side effect that each person may experience. I had literally scared myself out of starting the medicine at one point because I didn't feel like it was going to be worth it all.

It wasn't until I went on YouTube to watch other women's videos of their Accutane Journey that I decided it was something I did in fact was to do. I found it so helpful to watch the testimonials of other women who had gone through the same skin issues I had it real life. Now that I am on the medication it really isn't as bad as I thought it might be. Yes, I experience a number of side effects however I feel like in the long run it will all be worth it. My journey to clear skin started a month and a half ago and I'm ready to see what the future holds.

Since starting the medication I too also decided to start making videos on YouTube about my journey. All I hope is that other people out there find my videos as helpful as the ones I had watched. My goal is to provide as much useful information that might help people along their Accutane journey. This whole process hasn't been easy but I'm glad that I'm doing it. I feel like I'm part of a community of people who all share one common thing: bad skin. We are all sharing our healing stories and struggles with one another so that we can provide support.

Today I figured that as long as I am getting into Vlogging my Accutane story that I would also try giving blogging a go too. I'm very excited to reach out to and talk to everyone that wants to be part of my journey. Because in the end we are all in this together. I will help you through the rough days and I would hope someone might be there for me when I'm not feeling 100%. Thank you for taking the time to read this blurb and I look forward to writing more in the future. Have a good day!
