MS Update and Taco Night

The last few days seem to be blending together. My MS is still acting up. I spoke to my Neurologist Yesterday. I am to either go to the emergency room or come into to see him next week. Neither of which I want to do. I have an MRI next Friday and I also start Copaxone which are my daily shots next week. I have spent the last few weeks going through this. I think a few more days won't hurt.
Then I got some kinda stomach bug...GREATTTT
So ready for a break!!!!

When I am sick I still want to eat and I have been craving mexican food. My stomach was feeling a bit better last night so we decided to go ahead and have the taco night.
Oh boy were they good! I like Mexican food anytime. But I have been craving Chicken tacos. There is a sports bar down the street from us that makes chicken tacos and I wanted to see if I could replicate them. Trust me the ones they make are really healthy. They don't fry their shells and they use all white chicken.



They turned out really good..I also made rice and beans but only had a bite of each. I really only made it for Jack.

I am hoping to get a lot done this weekend. I have been planing on having a garage sell. Plus with not feeling well I have not been able to keep up on the house myself. So Jack is going to help me get caught up. Then it is easier for me after that. But once I get backed up that is it! I just can't get caught up. I just don't have the energy ....Things can get pretty crazy around here!!! Thankfully he is really good with the laundry. I guess he has to be if he wants work clothes!

As I sit here typing my hands are numb..The first half of this I typed last night. Then when I could not get the picture thing to work I figured I would wait till this morning well it still does not work but anyways..
 That is fixed now!
I just woke up about 30 minutes ago and my hands are REALLY numb and NO I don't want to go to freakin ER. Jack is still sleeping so I have NOT told him yet.I am also so freaked out about starting my shots again. I use to sit there and cry every day before I had to do my shot. EVERY SINGLE DAY! Because they hurt so freakin bad! I am not talking the needle that is a breeze! I can do that myself.I actually prefer to do it myself. It is the drug itself. Imagine being stung by 1000 bees all at once and it lasting for 3 hours! I have to do that to myself EVERY day of my life and I freakin hate it!!! I have tried just getting it over with in the morning. Then I don't want to get out of bed. or doing it at night. Then I don't want to go to bed. It is just a vicious cycle. I have tried ice packs. You name it. I have also been on other therapy's. Meaning other shots. They all come with their own side effects.
My Nuro has tryed to make me feel better by saying that it burns that bad because instead of my body attaching my brain it is attaching that shot and that is why it burns..That still does not make me feel better..LOL
Ohhh Just one of those days. I will get over it!
I did NOT ask to have this F-UP disease so I have the right to bitch about it every now and then right?
This journal/blog gives me an outlet for it!
