MS symptoms: Wrong Shot Spot 2/15/02

canstock5225947A blast from the past. This is an email I wrote about Avonex 12 years ago! Thought I would share it with my readers.

Most people look forward to Friday nights.  Personally, I could do without them for they are shot night.  A few weeks ago I had a terribly painful shot in my right arm.  I had dreadful pain for days and still hurts at times.

For some odd reason, I thought it was time to get a shot in that arm today.  Convincing Elgin to skip that shot spot this week, we went on to the next spot.  While giving the shot in my right leg, I remembered that I had just had a shot in my leg which meant that it wasn’t really time for that right arm yet and that we had just shot up a leg that recently had a shot.  Ooops! Wrong shot spot.

Do you suppose that I am getting used to these shots when I space out where the last one was?  I was even showing Elgin the shot reaction I had the week before which should have been a clue, Dah!  🙂
