Rebif sucks. 

Now that I've been on Rebif for a few weeks I can safely say that my increased fatigue is directly related to it and not due to decreased sunlight. I feel like crap. Also, my body aches. My hands, back, arms, legs everything hurts. This has been going on for a couple days straight. It feels like the flu but without the nausea. I hope it gets better soon.

The injections aren't too difficult to tolerate however the bruises aren't going away, especially the ones on my legs. I have thin sensitive skin so I doubt this will ever change. God I'm glad it's winter. At least I won't be wearing shorts in public for a while. My only consolation is that I know someday they will come out with a digestible drug.

Rebif Update (and more whining about being tired) 

I'm happy to report that this time around it's a hell of a lot easier to take the Rebif injections. The shots hurt less because of it's improved viscosity and smaller needle. The shots in my ass still hurt like a m*%$#!f*&%@r but still nowhere near as painful as it used to be. The shots in my stomach and legs are *almost* a cake walk.

Ok, here's the whining part - I have noticed an increase in fatigue. I'm unsure if there's a connection though. It's quite possible that my body is just going into hibernation mode, it happens every year. I keep thinking about all those migratory birds flying over our homes every night (birds migrate at night and rest during the day, did you know that?) I think I should migrate. Florida is sounding very appealing right now. Who's with me? Anyone? Anyone?

Pardon me your MS is showing 

So that guy I was dating, I told him I had MS. He doesn't want to date me anymore. (This was a guy who was willing to drive all the way from Wisconsin just to have dinner with me and I hadn't even slept with him!) Now he wasn't clear why and I'm quite certain it could be any number of reasons, for example, it could be that he's just not that into me or that he would rather jerk off to internet porn than spend real face time with a hot, nubile blonde (I'm talking about me people! jeez) But it does make me wonder if my telling him about the MS influenced his decision. Regardless of his reasons, this experience has helped make up my mind about divulging that information too soon. I'm staying in the MS closet where it's safe and warm and I'm not coming out until I'm certain the guy is hopelessly smitten cuz baby, it's cold outside.

And switching gears for a moment - I gave myself a Rebif shot in the stomach the other day. You heard me, I stuck a needle - in my stomach. You should try it! It's not as bad as it sounds. Hurts less than the one in my ass did.
