I have been seeing a dermatologist for 2 years now, and when I first went to him, he gave me a prescription that cleared my acne up like a blue sky day. One day, I was reading the pharmacists little love note that they always give you when you fill up and all I saw was
WARNING: Do not take if you are trying to get pregnant or if you are pregnant.
Well, the medicine came to a screeching halt and I went off. Goodbye my friend.
And so here we are 18 months later, NO BABY and acne that makes me cry every day.
I don't understand, I faithfully wash my face day and night, yet the hormones produce the deep, painful cysts under my skin, neck, shoulder, back and chest.
ENOUGH! I cried out yesterday morning and so I went back on the acne medication and was informed that if I do get pregnant again, I just go back off. Easy as that! So I am hoping that this nightmare of acne/zits will come to a screeching halt.
I was laughing the other night with a friend as we looked at picture before and after. Before Calling: smooth skin, no zits and no wrinkles. During Calling: zits, wrinkles and sleepy eyes. It made me think of the Ugly Mantle picture.
Have you seen the ugly mantle hit you in any part of your life?
