I have been doing yoga, as well. And, again, your situation sounds very similiar to mine. I not only eat well to stay lean, I eat well, more importantly, to be healthy. :bouncing: I, too, cheat and may order my french fries and chicken fingers. Although, I stay away from McDonald's. I am sure what I eat is no better, at times. What kind of yoga do you do? I, generally, do Bikram yoga (the hot yoga), but my Dr. said it may be aggravating my acne. heat causes more inflammation. I have not been doing Bikram since I started accutane, but , this week, I am testing it out. I really want to get back in it. I love the way I feel and how my body looks when I do it. On the other hand, my ND, said she didnt think the acne was aggravating it. She said it would be beneficial to do the Bikram to you said... rid the toxins. I dont know which stand point to take.
I can see both sides as well on this one, and because it takes two weeks for acne to form it might be that long before you know wether or not it would aggravate your acne. I guess it just depends on how worried you are about being broken out if it does, you know it will go away and you will be able to pretty much link to the two to realize it is aggrevating your acne so it can be eliminated. My acne when it was still mild was always worse in the heat and that is when and the only time I suffered with bacne. So its a roll of the dice on this one. Take a chance if you want or just stick with another kind of yoga. I do a ashtanga combined with a few other practices mixed in, basically what you might learn in a general yoga class with some more advance moves and combinations. Let me know how it goes!
Oh jeez.. I'm so sorry, Deltoro!!!!!!!

That is just an awful feeling. I always feel like people think that of me, too. I wanted to smack my mom a few weekends ago. There are these 2 guys who go to my church, and they both used to have acne really, really severely. Well, we saw the one brother recently, and his skin looked great. She was like, " What do you think he did?" And I said, "Probably Accutane" and she replies with the ignorant statement of "I always thought it was because they were on drugs" And I was so offended. I mean, I don't have the same kind of acne as they had (it was quite severe), but regardless- I have a problem right now. And my mom even had a problem with acne after pregnancy. So......Does that mean I am on drugs too? Why are people so ignorant?!?

Oh well, screw them! For real..let them think what they want..they are total a$$hat idiots with no life. Start a rumor about them, or something- or say it face to face to them.. Just be like "I love the fact that you deem it necessary to talk behind my back... For your information, My skin is broken out because Im taking medication...Not drugs. And as far as STDs go, I would think you'd know the difference between them and acne. Seeing as how you are a walking Viral infection. Now, talk about anyone in this office you feel you need to- but if I ever hear my name again, you will eat a filing cabinet through your ***, you giant fifth grader. Grow Up."
LOL least that's what I would do in this situation.
hey del, you sound great! what an attitude you have girl, i'm so jealous. but i'm so happy for you, sounds like you're treating yourself well. i gotta get some of that jergens!! i couldn't find it at the grocery, they had every other kind of jergens tho. and some coppertone thing that claimed to be the same, but i'm not taking any chances. i'll have to try target today. when i go shopping for new shoes for vegas-w/out-my-husband-- eeeee!!!

have you been washing your hair every day, or more every other? i've been going every other or so and rinsing and conditioning in between, but it's still getting pretty dry. and it seems to be totally falling out, it's all over everywhere, but i still seem to have plenty left, as i too have always had really thick hair. i don't know what the heck is going on. i'll tellya tho', i am so ready to be done with this medication! i catch every cold, and of course it's spring now so there are allergies to deal with too. not to mention the sun. the sun! used to be my friend, now it just burns me. that never, ever used to happen. ever! whaaaa? argh!

hey supasta, i have a ?? for you, (congratulation, btw! now i guess i'll have to go to the movies!) i'm thinking about auditioning for a film that's going to be shot here, but am pretty nervous about the "freckles" that are still all over my cheeks and jaw. i'd be interested in your opinion. due to the acne, i've been on about three auditions over the last five years, and i'm pretty sure my nervousness has prevented me from booking a single job. all the other girls seem tohave such nice creamy skin, ya know? what do you think? you don't seem to be slowed down too much by this. i try, but keep chickening out. just a teeeeensy bit of confidence i lack utterly. i have just enough to go to the grocery store, know what i'm saying here? okay, enough of that!

hey juici! still thinking about the tane? i don't know that i would recommend it, necessarily, if you can find something else that works, i would totally go for that. how long have you been taking the doxy? i took that for years and it really worked, but taking antibiotics for long periods of time, imo, not good for the health. i read somewhere online that there is a type of acne that results, primarily in women, from long term antibiotic use. Gram-Negative Folliculitis. might be what i have, but i don't really know. my derm just calls it acne, then we talk about vacations (one of my fave subjects!) and home improvements and stuff like that. i can be kinda scatterbrained sometimes. imo, the tane, truly a last resort, but it has been really working for me. not pleasant, i'm itchy a lot now, weird, hair kinda dry, sick all the time (but i have a kindergartener at home so some of that is to be expected), and am getting sunburns for the first time in my life, but my skin is looking so much better. everytime i see someone i haven't in awhile they comment on it. slightly obnoxious, but so much better than when i was looking bad and they wouldn't say anything, just stare or look away, you know how it goes. they either can't not look or can't look at all, but they can't seem to just look ya in the eyes. i hated that.

anyhoo, enough of my blather, i know i go on and on. realsad, you really should see a derm asap. best of luck to you! ali
