I'm taking Avonex. It's a disease modifying drug. I didn't want to take any meds. I wanted to just feel ok and be one of those people that didn't take meds. But some really smart people, including my doctor and a MS nurse said I should definitly take them.
It's meant to get easier, giving yourself a shot. For me, it seems to just keep getting harder. I read a news article this week that said 60% of people on these meds quit. I wanted to be one of them.
I skipped the med Friday night. I quit quitting and did it Saturday night. Despite the fact that I've felt awful today, I know its good for me. The overwhelming feeling of sadness is the worst. And I'm not sure if I feel that way because I physically feel bad, or if I physically feel bad because emotionally I feel bad. Either way, today has been awful. I'm going to bed with the knowledge that tomorrow will be better.
