Yesterday I took delivery of my medication (well my dad did as I was at the doctors). I knew it was going to be delivered but there was a little voice in my head saying “you never know, they may have made a mistake and it’s not actually MS”. Unfortunately it is and a box containing everything Rebif arrived by special courier.
When I got home from the doctors my dad was very positive and trying to keep my spirits up, but I just felt so down. It was the final reality slap in the face - after all they wouldn’t send out medication for nothing would they?
So curiosity got the better of me and after nearly and hour I opened the box. Inside I found everything I need to see me through the next few weeks once I start my treatment on Tuesday when the medication nurse visits to show me how.
Any positives out there that I can take note of? I’m normally a positive person but this last week (probably not helped by having a cold) I’ve felt low, exhausted and not interested in anything.
I’m prepared for the flu like symptoms and low mood but is there anyone else about to start Rebif that would like to be a Rebif Buddy with me? My OT suggested I find out if there was so at least there would be someone else experiencing the first few weeks/months on the treatment and side effects (if any and fingers crossed hardly any of any signficance) that we both experience.
Thanks for reading and have a good weekend everyone
