One Month Later

so it’s been a month since i’ve been on Tecfidera and i haven’t had any issues.  no flushing, no stomach problems, nothing – GREAT NEWS!!!  its always unnerving to start something new because u never know how u might react to it.  Beverly (at the MSCA) mentioned that it takes a number of weeks to actually get into ur system and start working, so who knows what benefits i may eventually see.  i go back there in August, so more to come on that for sure.

i talked about my telephone woes in my last post (the only issue i actually had) and everything worked out so i got the new pack yesterday.  as it turns out, i had missed a dose (of course) last month, so i had an extra pill that i took Monday morning so i only missed 1 dose (monday nite).

after my rough month last month, i’d said that i was back to normal.  i thought i was just based on how i was moving about a few times…the truth is, i’m not.  Doing things that i’m used to doing (out and about) are not as easy for me anymore.  i am still hopeful that there might be an explanation other than “the MS is progressing (ugh)” – maybe i’ll write about that later.

for now, i’m hanging in there…
