Hot hot hot. It's 15 degrees (and overcast) today, and I am HOT. My internal thermostat is whacked. Broken. Misfiring. Screwing with my happiness and comfort.

My face is covered in beads of perspiration. I radiate heat.

And to top it off, I think that the 44mcg of Rebif is creating more/greater nausea on my P.I.D days. And more headaches.

And my left leg is uncomfortable: it feels like a stretched elastic - and every once in awhile (okay, every five minutes) it releases, somewhere in my leg.

Did I mention that I'm still dealing with a rough run of fatigue?

These are tough times.

Last week, and I think even for a couple of days the week before, I napped every day. But I still pushed through - trying to be "productive" everyday. So far, since Sunday, I have done pretty much NOTHING. I don't even have the desire to be "productive".

For a change, I'm not fighting with myself to "do" something.


Oh yes, and here is a Rebismart update. I can no longer handle the pain associated with injecting the Rebif in my thigh. I've tried an icepack prior to the injection, and maybe in a couple of weeks I'll try heat. But for now, I have dropped my thighs. I'm in no frame of mind or physical space to put myself through any more pain than necessary.

Hey Emily, Ive been recently diagnosed in March, and found your Blog through looking online on how to inject in your arms.. Thank you for keeping notes.. I don't feel so alone.. and I check up on you all the time.. I myself have been having a hard time with my thigh injections and called the ms line... they helped me change my settings and I found out that i was not injecting on my thighs properly, Im suppose to do it on the sides, where the crease on your pants are... Hmm go figure, So in 3 more injection sites it will be time for my tighs again and we will see how the pain is.. if its still there I will do just like you and skip..
Anyways take care of yourself, and keep your chin up high..:) HUGS
