Thanks for the replies. Sometimes it is discouraging when there is no one to talk to. I have great family support but on those off days when all you want to do is cry it is hard for them to understand how you feel and they all have their own problems to deal with.
My Dr gave me Gabapentin for my pain but they make me very woozy so I can't take them when working. He also gave me Citalopram for my depression, that works well and even though I am so exhausted at times I can't sleep so I take Ambien for those times. I am starting to feel like a pharmacy with all the aspirins and meds I have.
When I started the betaseron I noticed a huge difference in my process thinking for the better. I was making all kinds of mistakes at work, forgetting simple things etc and I was so worried that I would lose my job, I was so frustrated not understanding why. The betaseron has helped that and my co-workers have been great since I decided in the beginning that they should know. I work in a hospital as a Lab Assistant (processor) so I stand for 12 hrs per shift.
I guess in my mind I was thinking without realizing it that hey I got this injection and I am going to be all right and nothing will change, ha I was so wrong as other symptoms started to crop up. All in all I am managing ok. I try to look at each day as a new beginning for me.
Well, now that I have whined to everybody, I just want to say that this is such a great place and everyone is so wonderful and helpful and full of information, thanks again.
