So Wednesday I started on Copaxone. It is an immunomodulating (changes the immune system) drug used to try and slow down new lesions and flareups of Multiple Sclerosis. I was kinda nervous at the thought of giving myself a shot everyday. I have an autoject (contraption that holds the needle and injects it when u push the button). You have to rotate injection sites because this medication has a notorious side effect of injection site reactions and deterioration of tissue at injection sites. So today was belly day. I was especially nervous about this. But it was the easiest site so far in a way.....I have enough padding (fat) there so it didnt sting as bad as the other ones. But being the only flexible spot it is a little wierd feeling now. So yea I know most of this blog has been medical shit. It is the biggest thing happening right now. Oh and I want a tattoo so bad it is driving me crazy. I shoulda been born rich.
