No more meds!
Well, that was one heck of a long day of tests! Jeesh! I think the best test was my blinded Neurological exam. I love that doctor! He's so great and is the doctor who gave me my diagnosis. So, I'm so happy to see him even though I can't talk to him. I can only answer his questions. But my neurological exam was going along and he wasen't finding anything to report on. So he went looking and found a faulty reaction in my left arm. It was pretty funny. He was laughing and I asked him to take back my diagnosis!

In a couple weeks I'll be hearing back on the extension part of the trial. It's not fully ready so I'm officially off all of the meds. I took my last dose of Fingolimod after I did all my bloodwork and that was it. WEIRD! I was about to leave the house this morning and I couldn't figure out what I was missing. I just knew something in my routine wasen't right and it felt like I was leaving the house without something. I figured out it was the whole pill taking and writing down the time and date in my diary. And you know, it was a bit of a strange feeling that I talked to my nurse about - not wanting to be off MS meds now. Be it Avonex or Fingolimod (whatever I'm on) I'm thankful for the impact it's made so far on my health. I've only had one attack in the last year. I have to live with MS all my life so I know I have to be an active participent in managing it, so being off of everything just feels wrong now! So I'm looking forward to finding out more about the extension when it's ready.
