  1. I don’t remember when I actually started dropping things around the house. As my PRP progressed, however, the skin on my hands thinned, my finger nails started to disappear and my fingertips became sensitive.

    Have you ever boiled cranberries to make cranberry sauce? The cranberries actually pop open and the explosion leaves an “X”. I had 10 finger tips with what felt like 10 paper cuts.

    Eventually, I bought a pair of gloves — not the nitrile gloves I wore at night, but a $10 pair of gloves from Home Depot. These weren’t the heavy work gloves used in yard projects. They were, in fact, leather and padded with Spandex stretch panels.

    Today, three years after remission, my hands are back to normal (pre-onset). However, I still wear my PRP gloves.
