I just did the daily injection, my goodness I don't like it.  It is just something I am getting used to.  I have always been a t-shirt and jeans kind-of guy, I have to be ready to check your oil, or change your oil, or play down by the river, or launch my truck up in the air off of some dirt hill.  Those days are gone now.  My lifestyle has changed, so my life will to gradually.  I have so many things to get used to.  At least I was that rip roaren guy that lived like there was no tomorrow.  There are many things that I can't do, but there are many things that I can do.

Ouch, I have read about Avonex and that one inch needle. Talk to you doc about Copaxone how it is a tiny needle. It is a subcutaneous injection very much like the diabetes needle, so he might not like that because that would be more injections in the same places. Maybe something to ask the doctor about.

I am so sorry your life changed. I know mine did too. I do not know if I will ever get used to the idea of the change and it has been almost three years. Good luck to you. I guess we have to accept it, but I cannot.

Not accepting might be the right atitude, you should never give yourself limitations. So many things are going to be harder now, but I am not going to let it stop me. It is all a state of mind. I do find myself getting a little more angry lately. I need to ask myself, am I angry with the world, or at myself. I think that one of the things that I have been angry about with ms is the fact that my immune system in your brain is attacking me.. I get angry at myself for that. I think that I am having less patience because I am acting differently towards other people doing something that I may consider wrong. Every year, its more and more meditation. Breath in, breath out.
