Rebi is Collecting Dust

I would love to be able to share my first Rebismart experience with you...right now.

But I can't, because I haven't had it yet.

There is only one nurse in this province who is trained with the Rebismart device, and she happens to be the nurse that I requested NOT to come and train me. I don't have a problem with her as a person, my problem is with her past "training" in which she read from the book, and I knew more than her.

*apparently, there is a home injection nurse shortage in this province

My phone nurse has not given in to my pleas to let me handle my first injection by myself. She is not susceptible to my charm and positivity. Today, I stressed that I am smart, and not afraid of Rebi...I have already set the comfort settings. But I don't have a choice.

I'm left waiting for the nurse...again.

I say take the Nike challenge and "Just Do It". So what's the worst that can happen and what will they do if you do? Take your MS away. ;). I'm just being sarcastic of course but I do have to wonder sometimes why there has to be so much process around some things.

Oh, how bloody frustemerating.

One nurse and you're calling that a shortage? What? ;-)

We are trying to deal with some health-care issues in the family right now and it amazes me how there is so little sense of urgency in “the system”…and a lack of willingness to acknowledge our urgency. It makes me want to scream. Or, maybe I place too high a value on things like pain-management and breathing. That could be it.

Yep. I think you hit the nail on the head zenbecca.Emily, given that you are THE ONLY PERSON IN YOUR PROVINCE WITH THE DEVICE I am betting that said nurse has NEVER SEEN it herself and also doesn't even have the BOOK to read about it.May even be avoiding you because of this fact?
