Interesting news from across the Atlantic.

Research Proving Link Between Virus And MS Could Point The Way To Treatment And Prevention.

Seems I blew by injection 500, 86 nights ago! Should be 587 but, I’m trying to stretch the last few injections of Copaxone seeing as how they are the last for a while. I’ve got my application out to AssistRX and hopefully I qualify. I don’t know what options i have other than that. I don’t make enough on my disability check to cover my rent, phone, electric, food for myself and a three year-old, a monthly “High-Risk” insurance policy, and the inevitable co-pay. Our esteemed governor has decided that if you make more than $900 monthly on disability, you no longer require medicaid. Does he not know that the median rent in New Jersey is around $1000 a month, unless you live in a subsidized project, which has a 2 year plus waiting list.

I guess he’s too busy embarrassing our state with his Tony Soprano antics, campaigning for Mitt Romney. Funny, Gov.Christie comes out against “The Jersey Shore”, and then acts like a member of the cast every chance he gets. Enough…

Day 597-Back of right arm
Had to ask mom for help tonight with my injection, as I tried my best to keep the shots 2 inches from the previous weeks. I’ve been having issues with body temperature lately. Last night and tonight where 37* outdoors, my thermostat set to 65* with drafty windows and a huge draft from the A/C still in my bedroom window, and I had to place a cold towel on my head and my T-shirt collar was/is moist from sweating. I don’t know wat else to do…open a window? Oh the joys of MS.

Be well!

Today started out INSANE, Had to drop off the hospital prescription at the pharmacy, called the hospital, my neurologist, my insurance, my 8th grade teacher, and the priest who baptized me, trying to get approval. It seems 1,000mg of prednisone over 2 days and 500mg the next 4 is an excessive amount…normally. Long story short at the end of the day I shelled out $40 bucks from my pocket for the ability to walk. Seems like a fair deal, no?

Other than the clean up from yesterdays hospital extravaganza, the injection went well. I picked up Shea today and really at the end of the day when you get that big hug and kiss from your child before he lays down to sleep and you get to see their peaceful little faces…THAT’S REALLY ALL THAT MATTERS.

Be well, stay well, no regrets.
