Since 2006, I've had multiple myeloma and my most recent treatment period was Aug 2008-Dec 2009 when I was on Revlimid. Unfortunately I was diagnosed with TTP and had a stroke so I was taken off of it. Since then I have had no cancer drug treatment and my igG (cancer levels) have slowly risen from the teens up to a high of 40.1 last Feb.
When I went in today for my quarterly specialist appointment, I didn't know what my igG number would be. I was worried it would be high 40s or even above 50. Thankfully it has actually dropped without any cancer treatment. My specialist was pretty amazed, but I know the reason - SuperBetter.
This is Day 89 of me participating in the SuperBetter project. I created a goal of taking a self-portrait a day on campus and after a couple of weeks I decided to do this 365 project as well. I have benefited from SuperBetter by setting an obtainable goal of taking a creative photograph a day on campus and creating a doable obstacle as it had to be done by midnight. It has helped improve my creativity and make me feel better about my photography and more confident about wandering around my campus with my camera and tripod looking for a photoshoot spot.
I feel awesome and I truly believe that my SuperBetter participation has contributed towards my cancer levels reversing.
Remaining positive, happy and focused as I continue to fight cancer through photography.
