I find that my self-portraits each week have a positive effect on my well-being by helping me remain creative and happy. Today I wandered by the hospital and found a quiet spot to relax. I enjoy calm moments when I can be alone with my thoughts.
To recap: On Sunday, December 13th, I completed Cycle 11 Week 4. I have Multiple Myeloma and anemia, a rare blood cancer. It is incurable, but treatable. From February to November 2013, I received Velcade chemo through weekly in-hospital injections as an outpatient. Since February 9th 2015, I have been on Pomalyst and dexamethasone chemo treatment (Pom/dex).
Weekly chemo-inspired self-portraits can be viewed in my flickr album.
