Five month update, shamless self promotion, and a question?

Well yesterday marked the five month date of my first Campath infusion. I wish I had more to report about how I feel, but it changes from day to day. I definitely feel the long term effects of the treatment. My hair has not recovered from the infusion. It used to be very healthy and shiny where as now it is dry and dull.

Hiring a maid

I am thinking about hiring a maid to come in every two weeks or so.

My husband does most of the day-to-day stuff like laundry, dishes and cat litter, but I'm ashamed to say things such as vacuuming, floor washing, the bathtub and the fridge will often go uncleaned for weeks or even months. I can't keep up anymore and looking at the mess just makes me feel depressed, embarrassed and inadequate. I can't even ...

Anyone in AUS want some N-Acetyl Cysteine?


I have 6 bottles (60 capsules in each) of 600mg N-Acetyl Cysteine that I bought from "Puritans Pride" approximately 1 year ago. I no longer need them and am happy to give them to someone who does, rather than just throw them out.

If you would like them please message me.

Best of luck and good health!
