MS & I

Whats up Doc?...

Went to the MS doctor last Thursday and got all my testing done for this new drug called Tysabri. Thankfully this is just a once a month deal and not a once a day shot! This is as good as it gets MS medication wise. I do have to say the good attitude at the doctors kinda went out the window when I was taken on a little tour of the infusion facilities. I was walking past the four small infusion rooms that seemed pack with people and old people if you don't mind me saying. Its as if they looked at me and were saying "join us". I know that the common age for being diagnosed is 20 to 40 but why do I feel like I am the youngest one with this thing? OK so I know that's going a little over board, but I must say it was a bit intimidating. Just trying to put a smile on my face one way or another. although I don't look forward to "joining them" I do look forward to this new medication and finding the laughter in all the many situations I find my self in.
