The first injection was awful. The poke wasn’t that bad if you call being stapled on with a staple gun and numerous tiny staple pins not bad… But it was only after the injection, the real pain began.
Now keep in mind that knowing I was starting a new injection, which guaranteed painful side effects; you’d assume I’d schedule a quieter week. If you did assume that, you know mw not at all! Monday’s injection was followed by a hectic work week, a family dinner, meeting Magic’s prospective mate, Pawlentines Day (Valentines day for puppies), Valentines weekend game night with friends, another puppy meet with thee prospective, walks , exercises and we were still not even at the weekend!
So but obviously by my own Valentines Day I was too sick to move and too much in pain to even try! But this didn’t stop me from trying to plan the upcoming week choc full of activities!
That’s the thing, we all have our pain, our stresses and our drama. We can either let it consume us fully or we can celebrate the day- every day with people, with love, with laughter and with friends.
I choose to not let this injection consume my life, to not let MS take over and instead am happy on most days to be surrounded by everything amazing to even care about it! Luckily for me I have an indulgent, loving family and and the most lovely husband who allow me to do way too much and then pick up the pieces as I collapse without doing the ‘I told you that you should have rested …’ routine!
We have a week’s break now before injection 2 and a higher dose. Naturally I have Bablu to keep me company in case I ever need to vent or all at someone… he is the prefect foil. He won’t take away the injection pain, but it’s fun assuming that maybe I could one day stab him with it!
The husband is romantically trying to redo Valentines Day…and my mom determined that at least some of the pain is caused by a wrongly directioned (vaastu/ feng shui…something) has been busy trying to redo the rest of the house that Bablu doesn’t inhabit.
I, am however enjoying the few days before the injection and trying not to cause myself more pain by tripping over my newly reassigned furniture (love you Amma🤗😘)
