In November 2008, I had another exacerbation of Multiple Sclerosis. While in the hospital receiving the Solu-Medrol (sp) they asked WHY I HAD STOPPED TAKING THE COPAXONE. Um... I Lost the injector? I broke my leg and was getting enough shots? I'm a big baby and they hurt afterward? Because I don't like doing it every day? How does one remember where they last injected? How do I reach my arm or Butt? With Copaxone shots you need to rotate daily where you inject.
Well, I agreed I needed to go back to Copaxone. The side effects of Avonex, Beta Seron & Rebif are like having the flu and they never got better. Quality of life issues here.
So this week my brand new shiny Auto Injector came and I started back on the shots. Paul gives me the shots and they only hurt afterward for a few minutes... So there ya go; all grown up..
Then yesterday, The Nurse from my insurance company called to discuss my Congestive Heart Failure issues.. Damn That's too much REALITY for this old broad in one week!
I find it easier to live in Denial and try not to worry about what may come. I'd much rather live there. Way too much reality this week. I'm tired, I don't feel good and I'm grumpy about being home alone tonight while Paul works.
I will say... GO CARDINALS!!!
