So, tomorrow is the other big day...
I go back to the MS clinic for randomization ( a computer generates a code which will be my name through-out the study, and decides whether I get 20mg or 40mg of copaxone). Then I get trained on how to inject myself, and give myself my first shot. I have to stay a hour afterwards to make sure all goes well.
Needless to say, I'm scared to death. It's not about the needles. It's not about any pain. I have always had allergic and/or adverse side effects which are not pleasant. I'm hoping none of which will happen. But I do understand that one of the rare adverse side effects, happens right after injection, and lasts about 10-15 minutes. That, i think i can deal with. It's the unknown that scares me.
If anyone knows of questions I should ask, or any advise that would help with the anxiety, I would love to hear from you. My Hubby will be going with me. I'm not a praying woman, but I guess it wouldn't hurt, huh?
Thanks for being there.
