I was diagnosed with relapsing-remitting MS in February/07. It was recommended to me by my doctor to start on Betaseron right away. I don't have any reason not to start other then a complete and total fear of needles. I know that sounds completely juvenile, but I can't help it. Just the thought of it brings on unbelievable, uncontrollable anxiety (The week I was on intravenous steriods was not fun - for me or the nurse!). It took me 3 months to get the prescription, 2 weeks to even take it to the pharmacy, days to actually go pick it up and a few hours of it sitting on my kitchen counter to even open the box. I honestly don't know how I'm going to do this.... Any suggestions, tips, words of advice???

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
