I am indeed doing much better these last few days. The meds DO seem to be kicking in as far as the upper part of my body goes anyway. My feet are still horrid but I think that will sort it's self out in time. Plus the side effects seem to be lessening so I'm sleeping, eating, and not puking 12 times a day now (bonus!). I had a weird experience last week. All the nasty scaling on my scalp just fell off! I spent 2 days combing and washing it out of my hair. Here's the weird part. Washing and brushing my hair now feels very odd. See I've had hard scaly stuff up there for 14 years, it's so weird to be able to feel my hands or a brush on my scalp. So I celebrated and went and got a trendy new haircut and that really made me feel good for once.



Great news! I'm so glad you were able to find a doctor that actually cares about what he is doing.

Mark had to give me an injection once. When he tried to stick me in the bum, the needle bent. Apparently I am truly a hard ass. The whole thing was very comical, but it was only once. I wouldn't want to go through it often.

(something weird is happening and I can't delete anything - hence the strange letters at the end!) aanai si


That is SO cool! I'm so glad something is working for him and that the side effects are lessening.


I just heard about that med from a patient of mine. Martin, you have a lot more healing to look forward to. I read up on it because I was curious, and that patient told me it only gets better with time. Awesome. I love it when medicine works!


I'm excited about the progress I have made I must admit. Just getting my hair cut last week was a big thing for me. After a decade of living with this, starting to get better is really a big thing to me.

Try using a mixture of Borage Oil and Avocado Oil on the skin. I can actually make a batch for you and send it to you if you would like.


Hey Martin,

I'm glad the medicine is working. I tan, and it helps the little spots that I have, but it's good to know that if they get worse, even if tanning, that there is something out there that will work.

Take care Pam and family


It is really making a difference. I'm only on week 6 (out of 6 months of treatment) but the difference is very noticeable already. Cross your fingers folks.

  • John Grisham: The Innocent Man
    I can only quote from the jacket blurb: "If you believe that in America you are innocent until proven guilty, this book will shock you. If you believe in the death penalty, this book will disturb you. If you believe the criminal justice system is fair, this book will infuriate you." A must read. (*****)

    Fascinating look at women journalists at the front during WWII. (****)
  • Jack Olsen: Charmer
    Riveting true crime by a master. (****)
