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.
