Just when I thought the antibiotics were working, I spent most of the night coughing. Even the strong cough syrup with codeine did nothing. It wasn't until 5am that I finally fell asleep.

The house is quiet. The family went off to church without me -- again. I'm sure they all think he is a single dad over there. Trying to remain positive, but it's difficult when it feels like I just exist these days.

A friend pointed out that copaxone can have side-effects, such as the ones I'm experiencing (weakness, nausea, dizziness, bronchitis, etc.) so I'll have to check on that with my neurologist this week.

Probably best to try to nap now while everyone is at church..

    I'm sorry this has been such a difficult month for you, this disease isn't easy. But it's good news your spinal lesion went away. I haven't had an mri in years nor have I seen my neuro. It was a decision I had to make. However, I did have the CCSVI procedure, my veins are open but I still struggle with ms symptoms.
    So this verse is my prayer for us..

    He said to her, "Daughter, your faith has saved you. Go in peace and be cured of your affliction."
    Mark5:34
    God bless!!

    Thank you so much for your comment. I am sorry that you are on this road as well. I love the encouraging verse you sent... I will definitely revisit that one often! Praying for some resolution of your symptoms for a restful sleep tonight, and a great, STRONG week ahead! Blessings to you!
