There are many different DMTs (Disease Modifying Therapies) for Multiple Sclerosis. I am currently on one that I inject 3 times a week, much better than the daily version I was previously on. The injection is subcutaneous, meaning I inject it just under the skin, similar to a diabetic injecting insulin. Not bad when you compare it to the first meds I was on that had to be injected weekly into the muscle (Intramuscular).
I inject myself in the hopes that it will slow the progression of my MS. Even though I take my medication I still gain new lesions. It’s tough to say how many more I would get without it.
My talented wife has asked to document my journey with MS. Together we will be sharing our ups and downs along the way. It was only fitting to start with my injections. So I sat on the couch; sweat pants, belly rolls and all.
If seeing needles are not your thing, feel free to close this window.
This is my life with MS.
