I met with an old friend today, we haven’t talked in about 8 months so I invited him over for a few drinks tonight. I knew he’d been on accutane himself but didn’t want to mention my side effects as they’re very negative so I just said did you notice anything while on it yourself?
What he told me completely shocked me, he said this.
“Yeah I noticed some extremely weird stuff, my legs
went numb for a few weeks along with my cock, i couldn’t feel it properly, my emotions also went numb, my nan died and I couldn’t feel a thing.”
I then showed him my stretchy skin and he said oh yeah it did that to me too and he pulled his skin away like I can do, his hair also thinned slightly like mine as well. I’m completely shocked that a guy up the road from me, a friend has almost identical symthoms, he’s very lucky, his penis is returning to normal unlike mine but at least the past few days I’ve come to terms with myself enough to appreciate myself a little more for who I am. Maybe this syndrome is a lot more common than we think? What’s the odds of that guys, im still shocked.
I will add I can get an erection to porn and I got horny a little today, even if the penis is a bit dodgey looking and lumpy and thin skinned, not that horny though and my skin and penis still burn, very sore at times but I don’t feel as bad even though these things are effecting my life, I know @Scotsman tries not to think of what makes him sad and i completely understand that now, I disabled my Facebook and cleared 1 years of pictures from my phone, I’m trying to start fresh and forget the past as seeing myself just upsets me, I hope one day I can be who i always wanted to me, a nice and caring guy not plagued by PFS, OCD and other mental health issues, things where hard before, PFS so im used to that, but i just thought I’d share as of now regardless if i get better or worse, in this moment i feel a little better about the future.
*Edit - in regards to numbness/loss of sensation of other parts of the body, skin, smell, hearing etc, what would be the effect of AR on that? Just curious how it’d cause loss or reduced input to body wide area’s.
