Updates on me

Sleeping still isn't going well (I'm lucky if I get five hours a night) but the itching is much better. I'm on Diprobase ointment now which is basically just melted paraffin wax and really greasy which I generally hate but is already making my skin feel sooo much better! Odd, because Vaseline is just disgusting and Auqaphor by Eucerin is a little better but doesn't moisturize. Diprobase might actually be moisturizing. So hopefully that's one thing that will be getting better for me!
I have my second radiation treatment tomorrow at 4:30. Five rounds of it this time. Only had one the first time to see how my body and skin would handle the side-effects. Dermatologist says my skin is more of a reaction of something in the air/something I ate or touched than the radiation and I'm hoping she's right. It has gotten better since I've cut out all caffeine after 6pm and avoided soy as much as I possibly can. I'm also eating somewhat healthier but that's more of a lack of interest in eating than any other reason. Many foods just don't appeal to me anymore and I'm snacking on fruity things more. By fruity I don't just mean fruits. I'm including gummy worms, Lifesaver gummy snacks, and Target's store brand of cherry flavor Fruit by the Foot. Many days I'm sort of living on sugar-free applesauce as sometimes that's the only thing that is appealing.
Anyway I guess the only other thing to update on is my writing! For anyone who cares I've finished Some Like it Rough which I'd started in August. Finished yesterday afternoon. I also ended up changing what I'm writing for NaNoWriMo. Put aside Gift of Bliss as I just didn't like how it was going. It's far too serious and bland for me so I'll be reworking it as soon as I figure out how. I'll keep that plot the same but I'll turn it into a much more dramatic and edgy story. I'm instead writing something for now titled Do you Dare? which is basically about a game of truth or dare that brings computer software CEO Jason Scott and new-to-town shy girl Anya Finn a whole lot more than they bargained for. This story may end up being an edgy romance but not sure yet. I have the plot figured out but I'm just not sure if it's going to be a purely fun story or more of a romance.
And I guess that's about it!
