On Friday Open Thread

Very nervous. Guy I like is leaving the country and hoping to squeeze in a "talk" before the departure...

What would you do? Talk or just wait and see?

On My Case With Accutane

@Sarah H. I was looking for a spironolactone crowd! I've been on the medication for about three months and am loving the results. The side effects are a bit iffy; I sometimes become very lightheaded after sitting on the couch and have to constantly pee. On the plus, though, peeing in the middle of the night means slamming more water, therefore, fewer hangovers!

The reason I am on spironolactone is because of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) which explains so much about my skin. I have had awful skin since my teenage years (I'm now 26) and refused to go on Accutane. I finally received the PCOS diagnosis this summer and the spironolactone plus birth control plus two topicals equals great skin.

So ladies, I would highly recommend looking more into PCOS if you're out of teen years and have bad skin. Yes, I'm practicing without a license, but I had never heard of PCOS before this summer and having the diagnosis has changed my life for the better.
