After just two injections I can feel the familiar feelings returning. Aside from the flu-like side effects (achey joints), I have been waking up, not suicidal, but with little enthusiasm for life shall we say?
One phonecall to my MS nurse later and I can announce that Rebif and I are officially no longer an item.
A(nother) month of no drugs should clear my system and by that point I’ll have a meeting with my neurologist about possible alternatives.
Of course, one of those alternatives might be a lower dose of Rebif, because whatever I say about it, it has done its job by keeping relapses at bay.
But I’m going to celebrate tonight. I’m looking forward to being officially completely drug free for the first time in six years with all the benefits that brings.
