My finger nails.

The last chemo drug that I was on, Docetaxel, did a number on quite a few things. My eyelashes, my eyebrows, my skin and finally my finger nails. They started peeling from the bottom up, much like if you got your nails done and needed a fill. Shortly after that started, they were peeling from the top down. My nails are a mess right now and a lot of the soft nail bed is exposed making them very sensitive and quite painful depending on what I have them come in contact with.

I can't have them in the water too long or it makes the entire nail too soft and then more and more of it flakes off, exposing the soft bed underneath.
