Some people are curious.  Some have asked.  So here goes.

Nearing almost 200 self-injections since October, I am ready to share.

This is a manual Copaxone injection.  It happens daily - in rotating locations around my body.  Tonight it's my stomach area.

I am not sharing this for praise or applause.  Despite how scared I was to start - it's normal now.  And I am okay with that.

I am baring my two-babies-wide tummy for those who are struggling with medication choices; for those who think they can't; for those who are scared.  You can do this.  You are strong.  And soon, for you too, this routine will become a boring old habit.
