On My Case With Accutane

@gidgetjones Me too! I was 14 when I went on it, and I don't think my poor neurochemistry has ever recovered. My mom says I underwent a pretty dramatic transformation when I started taking it. (So why didn't you take me off it, I want to say, but no sense blaming now.) 15 years of antidepressants, therapy, psych inpatient, and a failed suicide attempt later, I have GREAT skin.

(Insert discourse on how mental illness has actually made me stronger, I have no regrets, I'm a survivor, etc. Still, up yours, Roche.)
