Yesterday and Today, Hoping for School!


Yesterday sucked. I inject Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays and yesterday I forgot to do something. I forgot to take ibuprofen. By the way, I wrote yesterday’s post Sunday night haha, hence my talking of yesterday. SO, you are supposed to take Ibuprofen with your Rebif injections to prevent flu-like symptoms which so far I have not had too much of an issue with except for some occasional body aches and skin sensitivity. Since I did not take any ibuprofen yesterday I had both these thing, probably the worst I have ever had them. When I finally realized what was going on I took 600mg of Ibuprofen and 2X Norcos (20/650) because it was just miserable. About an hour later it began to subside and since I have not taken Norcos in a while I began to grow very… Sleepy… I did not fall asleep but I could barely keep my eyes open.

On top of all that I had some itching yesterday which I hate with a passion. Most the time it is just on the top/back of my head but every once in a while it attacks my face, this was one of those times… It hit my nose hard! I hate when this happens! No matter how much you itch it just does not go away and sometimes I feel like I am itching to the point of bleeding.

Anyways, I spent most of yesterday and today laying down and watching TV, fun. I did continue my stretching which I started Sunday night. Just working on leg stretches for now to try and loosen up my hamstrings so that maybe I can improve my walking and, at the least, prevent permanent damage to my legs over the coarse of dealing with this spasticity… Mostly doing the whole sit up strait (with your legs fully extended) and reach for the toes kind of thing. I remember in high school being able to touch my toes… Now… Can barely touch my shins…

I thought my neurology appointment was tomorrow but it’s not, it is Thursday, the 16th, not Wednesday the 15th. Oh well. Really hoping I can get some actual help and at the same time, hoping I can get into school. I am going insane just sitting here all day everyday, put me in a chemically induced coma if I do not get into school this semester yeah? What it boils down to is wether or not I can get a ride for the first 2 weeks, then I should be able to start driving, but those first few days are the issue… If I have to keep this up till January because of a few days, I will loose my mind. I NEED to get back to school for so many reasons

Cross your fingers for me and maybe check out my fundraising page for the stem cell treatment I would like, share THIS on Facebook, the more likes the better, thanks!

  1. I stopped taking the Rebif. I broke out with shingles when I increased to 44mcg's. I had flu like symptoms even with the ibuprofen so I can't imagine forgetting it all together! Praying you are able to get back to school. I can't stand seeing a "kid" with MS. Starting kale smoothies today. I'll let you know how that goes. lol

    Yeah I don't typically have issues but since it has no long term effect I want something new…

    I am so hoping as well, thanks, and yeah let me know. I made one last week but it was like a $20 drink lol so….. Might not happen for a while… Need to grow my own stuff haha!

  3. I forget the ibuprofen sometimes too…with Avonex. The itching of my head makes me think I have lice or something…I think it will drive me crazy:)
    I hope you get to school
