I am happy to say that I have had a fantastic long weekend, I hope y’all have as well! Yesterday, I finally was able to go to my favorite restaurant with my husband for dinner. We had a great time, eating dinner outside in the fresh air. The temperature was perfect as well! It is always nice to get out of the house and have a nice dinner together, where we can chat about various things in a different environment. I think it is important to be able to have sweet quality time with your significant other, plus it is so relaxing to just be together!
Today, was another nice day that I spent going to lunch and shopping a little with my mother. Over lunch we were able to catch up with each others lives and have some mother daughter time that we have not had in a little while. As I get older, I realize how important it is to make time for family. We all have busy lives and get so caught up in what we have to do we sometimes forget what else is important in our lives, which is make time for family. So, I am making a promise to myself and my family to start making more time to spend with them.
On another note, this is probably the week I am going to be starting the Tecfidera. I am a little nervous about a new medication, but I know the risks and what to watch for. I am going tomorrow afternoon for blood work to make sure my counts have balanced out from being off of the Gilenya for close to two months. Hopefully, my blood count will come back normal and I can start my new adventure with Tecfidera. Again, I am going into this new treatment with a positive attitude that it will work and I won’t have any issues. I just want to ask my fellow bloggers, have any of you been on Tecfidera before and if so, what was your experience with this? I honestly hate having to take medication everyday, but I also know that it helps slow the progression of this disease so I can remain as healthy as possible for as long as possible. I really hate side effects because sometimes I swear they are worse than the alternative, but hopefully I won’t have any horrible side effects.
I truly appreciate you coming back or just starting to read my posts. I love being able to connect with all of you and have found it so incredibly helpful. I do put my heart and soul into writing these posts, as it was hard for me in the past to be so vocal about my MS. Even though I battle through life with MS, I am still and always will be me, not just MS! I really appreciate and value all of your comments and I do always respond to you as soon as I am able to! Thank you again for all of your support! I hope you have a great week!!
