You know, MS problems aside I'm rarely ill with coughs, colds and all those mundane things. I'm due my first Avonex injection and typically I've not been well for the past three weeks! I say not well I feel fine generally but I have a horrendous sounding chesty cough and constantly snotty nose, oh yes and another UTI, that's two this year! Very annoying! My cough sounds like I'm a 50 a day smoker (I'm not), I think it's the snotty nose that's causing my cough because of a delightful thing called post-nasal drip, I shan't go into detail as it's fairly grim thought but I'm sure people can use their imagination if they don't know what I mean. Rather then a virus or bug I suspect it's possibly hayfever causing my problems. Just want it all gone by Thurs so feel ok for my injection. Best not worry about it though, I'm sure it will all be ok. So five days and it's full speed ahead with the injections, eeek! To be honest I feel ok about it all at the moment, but we shall see how I feel on Thurs. I'm sure there will be several butterfly's scooting round my tummy ( well that's what it will feel like) when it gets nearer to that time.
It looks like I will be doing a blog for the MS society about starting Avonex, they liked what I sent them for my first blog so I think they'll be using it. I'm just waiting to hear when it will be on there.
