I will push aside hunky Dexter (get it?... blood?) from my mind, and do the update...
I go to the lab every 4 weeks for a full work up to ensure my medication is not sneakily affecting my body in any negative ways. It can be prone to do that - especially to the liver.
I now have my baseline results, month 1 at titrating dose, and month 2 at full dose. The scoop? No adverse changes! Despite the headaches, pains, chills, needle marks and red splotches now covering my "fatty bits," my body is taking this medication in; letting it do it's work.
I'll get to see my spinal cord MRI results next week to go lesion-hunting. I only hope there is good news on that front too.
Hallelujah for small victories. The wine will be moderately flowing on non-injection nights!
