I've been on the meds for a few months, and so far, so OK. Things haven't been great, they haven't been bad. My side effects haven't been horrendous, but there have been times that they've been able to shut me down for awhile. I still have to get used to listening to myself and take the rest when I need it, where I need it. When I pay attention to my meds and take the well-timed nap, all is well.
My health problems aren't related to my MS as much as being the mother of two small toddlers. My back is killing me these days! Having a 2 year old and a 10 month old wreaks havoc on the healthiest of backs, and my back wasn't healthy to begin with.
Now it's time for me to recommit to my health. After months of bad food, insane work hours, it's time to take care of myself so that I can take care of others. After all, I can't wait around for everyone else to take care of me, and I'm proud of the fact that they don't have to take care of me...too often.
