How did we get back to Monday so fast? It really is amazing how fast the weekend goes by. Sometimes, I feel like I didn’t get much accomplished in the two days off work. Well, I guess I did do something, I started my new medicine.
As so many of you know, rain causes pain to act up even more than normal! Today, it is so chilly and rainy, that I am in a lot of pain. I did manage to take the Tecfidera for the sixth time now. Thankfully, I am not really all that itchy and my stomach isn’t as bad as it was, but is still a little uneasy. I do not feel 100%, but maybe it has something to do with the weather making me hurt! All I really want to do today is stay curled up with my blanket and my cats on the couch nice and cozy, I might add a book to the mix as well!
Unfortunately, I know tomorrows weather is going to be just like it is today! We are supposed to have another windy and rainy day. Trying to stay motivated when you are in pain is a difficult task, but I am not going to give into the pain. I know that many of you really understand what I am going through right now, and all of you have been so encouraging! We all have a certain battle in life to deal with, but we are all strong enough to get through it. We all have a power hidden inside of us to make it through the worst of times, sometimes even with a smile on our face! It is truly amazing how hard we fight our battles and how sometimes, we do not even show are scars from the hard times!
My thoughts and prayers are still with all those who were effected by Hurricane Irma. I wish them strength and comfort as they struggle through this horrible event. I can’t even begin to imagine what they are feeling right now, but I sincerely hope that everyone can pull together and support each other during this time.
I once again want to thank all of you that have read and made comments on my posts. This blog has truly been an amazing experience for me. I have connected with people all over the world and I have learned so much from everyone. For those who have helped me through starting a new medication, that I was terrified to start, I would have been so much more uncomfortable without your help. Also, for some whose condition may have worsen, my thoughts and prayers are with you always and I am here for you, if you should need anything. I have a special connection with so many wonderful people, and I appreciate all you have done for me. I am thankful for my husband as well, who listened to be patiently while I went back and forth a million times about starting Tecidera. The man has patience made of steel, as it couldn’t have been easy to listen to me for so long about the same thing!
I hope you all have a nice and safe Monday!
