sorry that things aren't looking so bright right now (i know exactly how you feel)..i am taking 1/2 of a cc of estrogen right now. my normal dose should be 1 which is 10ml of the estrogen but the doc. wants to see how my body responds to it first (precaution) so i have to have blood drawn next friday to see how much my body is taking. then i go back the following friday to get my 2nd shot. I am taking 100mg or spiro (1 pill) a day with lunch. Oh my god, my face is like a tomato today with big bumps because of the 7% BP, i am scary looking (not that i wasn't already). My best friend came over yesterday for 20 minutes (because i had to get my shot) and she just gasped because she hasn't seen me in 6 months (no one has) and it was just awful...i know she still loves me as her best friend but it is just horrible to see your friends gasp in horror at the sight of you
Anyway, those spots that the derm. poked are big cysts now and i am getting all these little clogged pores for some reason all over now. i don't know why.. i use the tazorac every night and that just isn't cutting it i guess. I know the BP will be good for me but i just need a lower strength and i called my derm but he hasn't returned my call yet (that was yesterday) so i am praying i don't break out like a freak of nature even more this weekend because during the day i am medicine free as my face is a burning cranberry. I am so upset to, my birthday (21st) is next month and it is just going to be a sad day filled with tears...last year my dad had planned to take me to vegas to celebrate but there is no way i am going, and in august we were going on a cruise to alaska (my whole family) to celebrate my dad's b-day and my parent's anniversary, but i am not going and the rest of the family is. I am so bummed at how this has ruined my life. As for you and your daughter going to the carnival..good luck and i do what i do..keep your eyes always open and if you see someone you know just turn around a walk away before they see you...but i am sure you will have fun with your daughter regardless!!! keep me posted as i love to hear how you are..you are in my prayers!!
how much spiro are you taking? how long before you noticed a difference in your complexion or the oil? Could you give me some info. to help ease my mind about this pill, i am scared right now about what might happen.. thank you,
