Mind, Body and Spirit... and oh yeah Myeloma- Skin Segment

Here's the first of my health segment I spoke about starting. I've noticed for myself being on the cocktail of drugs I spoke of, my skin tends to be super dry... more than usual. There was a point it was so cracked I thought it would bleed, and that's not cute! I had a regimen years ago when I had this dry patch of psoriasis or something on my *back that I wiped away and it never returned, I'm not sure what happened, but I went and did some research and looked to old school remedies.

Anywho... The good news I suppose is my cancer and the recent yet current meds has brought me to 90% remission . I started treatment in October of 2014 and here it is March 2015, and in these short months my IGA level has dropped from 7000 (Not Good) to 400 (Very Good). I can't say I'm totally ecstatic because we all know how this cancer works... or do we?
