24 Days Down! Praise Report!
It has been just over 3 weeks since I've starting taking Copaxone. That means I've had 24 shots! Through much prayer and encouragement from my husband, I've yet to miss a day! Praise The Lord! I've been pleasantly surprised that the injections have been pretty painless. However, I'm still experiencing crazy stinging sensations for about 10 minutes after in that spot with some places worse than others. (It seems like my stomach has been the worst.) I've had a lot of people ask me if the medicine is working and the answer is, I'm not sure yet. So far, I've been relapse free since December 2012! I would definitely say that Tysabri totally changed me, and so far Copaxone is helping me sustain that. The real answer will come with the results of my MRI in 2 weeks, as well as the one I will have at the end of the year. This will tell us if any damage is being done internally. Meanwhile, I'm holding onto my Father, ultimate physician, my Creator to make it through each day. The Lord is my strength!
I will bless you as long as I live; in your name I will lift up my hands. Psalm 63:4
