I just finished 23 out of 33 with either 5 or 8 boosts. It hasnt been bad so far, getting a little red with some itching, they gave me lotion to use it does help.
I haven't felt any fatigue, if anything, I feel like I have more energy now. Sure do hope that it stays this way.
 
Oh, for deoderant I was told to use the baby corn starch, its okay but nothing like deoderant
 
Good Luck to all...

Hi!! I went today for simulation--had my mold made and some x-rays and a CT scan and have some temporary marks that I'm not suppose to remove but not as bad as I thought. Again It's just the fear of the unknown.

bump.....

 A person's greatness is the power to stand alone;to be able to make her own choice; in action,to write anew her own law; to choose her own sacrifices; run her own dangers; win her own freedom; venture her own destruction; to choose her own happiness
