digging my scene

Two weeks in exactly, 6 injections so far, another onecoming tonight.

Here's a weird thing: I'm kind of getting a little bit addicted to the whole needle-thing...

The strange thing is that I've never been interested in tattoos or piercings or all of that body-art stuff. Plus, when I was at university, I ended up living with a bunch of blokes who slowly mutated into the cast of Trainspotting... at least as far as their "recreational pursuits" were concerned.

So, with all of that, I've never been all that keen on needles.

Until now, that is. As I only have to inject 3-times a week, I find that I miss it on the nights when I don't need do it. Today being Monday, I'm quite looking forward to getting home - is that weird?

Anyhoo, Rebif seems to be working wonders for me so far. I've more energy than I've had in AGES, I've been at work full-time for the last two weeks (the first time since the start of September last year) and I feel so much sharper generally.

I know, this may all be in my head. Or it might be a coincidence that I started this medication at the same time as I would have started to recover anyway. Or it could just be the buzz of using some funky technical kit to improve my health - it's almost like living in THE FUTURE!

And I know that MS is a disease that can kick yr ass RIGHT WHEN YOU LEAST EXPECT IT. So I'm very conscious that I don't want to jinx it.

But... so far so good.

So...I'm 2 weeks into my methotrexate shots...and i feel the same look forward to it. Its totally screwed it. Considering 2 years ago the anxiety and fear I had about betaseron, which lead me to stop taking it.

I'm glad I'm not nuts.
