BG-12, Not so graceful moments
Ok, for all my MS research, blogs and communities how come I just learned about the new oral drug BG-12???? Have I been under a rock? My Mom txt'd me this morning and saw it on Headline News. Seriously? While this whole week I have been debating between losing my hair with Terflunomide or having my heart slow down and stop with Gilenya there has been BG-12 on the horizon? After googling everything I can about it, the low side effects and potential disease slowing results sound fabulous to me. Wow, it sounds like the wonder drug of MS. Think I will gladly wait a couple more months off Copaxone to try it. :)
So, I'm not the most graceful gal in the world. I slipped on my patio steps a couple of nights ago and went boom. A sprained wrist, bruised back, severely bruised bottom (I swear, I had no idea a bottom could bruise so bad!) and various other aches and pains has left me pretty much couch/bed ridden. Sitting in a chair is barely tolerable. Of course, my issue is I don't want to go out in public and have friends think it's an MS thing. We MS'ers actually do and can have accidents and mishaps that aren't MS related. But, when you have people looking at you under the MS microscope it's hard to convince them (in my case) that is wasn't a balance issue. lol It's actually easier to blame MS than to admit what a klutz I am.
