Does anyone who has made a big move alone have any useful coping strategies? I'd also be interested in any books that come to mind as being relevant or helpful (fiction or non-fiction) in such a situation. [more inside]

I've been pretty happy with my gains, but I'm seeking any advice. I'm 5'8, early 30s, male, 135 lbs. [more inside]

YANMD. I was planning to start on Accutane this week but before I could do this I had to take a blood test showing my liver enzymes and triglycerides were at normal levels.
