I know I’m already WAY ahead of myself… I haven’t even been diagnosed with MS yet – but I was doing some reading (I should really stop doing that) and I came across some ‘treatment options’ for MS. They’re almost all injections!! Injections? As in… put a needle in my skin!!!
Oh, no… I could never ever ever ever do that. I’m TERRIFIED of needles. There’s no way. I’d either puke or pass out.
Does anyone take these meds? Do you really just “get used to it”?? What was it REALLY like the first time you had to give yourself an injection? Doctors and nurses tell you one thing – but I’m really more interested in the real stories. The more I think of this, the more I see it as a double-edged sword.
My head is spinning. On one hand, if and when I get an official diagnosis I will be relieved. I know that sounds bad, but I just want an answer already! This not knowing is awful! On the other hand, being ‘diagnosed’ with MS is never a good thing. I need to stop getting ahead of myself and just take it day by day, but that’s so hard to do sometimes. I feel like this has consumed my every thought lately. I think I’m just venting, because nobody else “gets” it. Thanks if you’ve gotten this far.
