If you cross a walker with a scooter will you get a Stalker? My husbands thought, I claim no credit for that.
Always unbuckle your seat belt before trying to leave the car.
Our anniversary, twelfth anniversary for those that care, was on a Saturday. I didn’t want the Rebif hang-over even though its more mild with the Claritin. Side note: I’ve switched from the Claritin-D to the plain stuff, that seems to have helped with the dry mouth/eyes. I only take it on injection days. It works better if its… Read More »
Every winter I end up with bronchitis or some insufferable chest gooey nasty phlegm related sickness. This year when I started dripping, as I do, I started taking Claritin D. Helped with the dripping and my chest felt better to boot. Interesting side effect was decreased injection site reactions, fevers, general malaise … in other words my usual… Read More »
Ever since its been getting cold I am so blasted tired and achy I may as well be Methuselah. Not Young Methuselah, no more like Old Cranky Cantankerous Crotchety Methuselah.

Load the gun, put it against your skin, press the button and the jobs done. Mary Poppins just floated through my brain there. Song “Spoon… Read More »

This means you will have to do the tests prior to your appointment. You can either; get the orders for the MRI and blood work at your appointment for the next appointment call your… Read More »
When I was first told that I had to be injecting medicine 3 times a week I was ok with it. Medicine I know where to get, Mr. Pharmacist is a nice person. But where do I put the used syringes? I asked my neurologist. I asked my neurologists nurse practitioner. I asked my pharmacist. I called my… Read More »
Chinese Hampster Ovaries. That’s what Rebif is made of. American hampster ovaries are not good enough, no. We must import these little gems of medicine. Besides, PETA would probably object. I don’t think they’re performing hysterectomies on the little rodents so PETA would definitely object. Every time someone says Rebif I flash to two movies; Sixth Day and… Read More »
