    Great news Pilar, you've come a long way. It was a rocky road, but it's great to read you're doing so well and sounding so positive!

    Accutane does have anti-inflammatory properties.

    You will be required to be on birth control pills prior to taking accutane so your acne may just clear up from those, since it does sound hormonal, before you make a decision. Good luck.

    Yeah... I will put a hold on the Accutane for bit.

    MaryAnn: I got your PM, did you get my reply?

    Ed: That was fun... still is!
    Thanks for your support through it all!
    And I don't think I can ride a motorbike for like forever... I think that and skydiving and bungee (sp?) jumping are a life restriction... at least in Dr. Pashman's list. Too bad because my boyfriend loves and has a motorcycle. Oh well...

    Pilar, your reply didn't come through. . .I think you're wise to spend this time getting strong again (and then go for the Accutane later, if you decide to) . . .your body's taken a tremendous couple of hits.
