Infusion aftermath

Infusion aftermath

Yesterday was a very rough day. I’ve been sleeping good so that’s a plus. I was able to exercise because that is never an option. I would say around 12 o’clock it hit me like a ton of bricks. Maybe not even bricks, more like a Mack truck. I just was fatigued in every single muscle and joint. Even moving to go to the bathroom was so difficult. Anyone with MS knows that feeling. However this one was like times…

How do you feel after an infusion?

How do you feel after an infusion?

It’s funny because all my complaining last week about NOT getting my infusion leads to this: I feel awful. Please, please give me my medicine. Pump me up with all this shit so I can feel lousy.  kind of makes you wonder what the hell I was I fighting for. All anxiety for four days straight. All so I could feel horrible. Rituxan Infusion Finally Done but still wasn’t smooth. It never fails someone always asks me, does it…

Rituxan Infusion Finally Done but still wasn’t smooth

Rituxan Infusion Finally Done but still wasn’t smooth

I finally got my infusion done on Saturday but it was still with a few headaches. I got a delivery on Friday of a box from the pharmacy that seemed to be another box of supplies. I still didn’t have the steroids, Benadryl, Saline Bag or the pump. It took me 50 minutes on hold until I got someone to pick up. From there I was bounced around to three different people. The last person I was speaking to was…

The infusion never happened

The infusion never happened

It was truly an unbelievable day yesterday. A day that did not end with her infusion. Not only did it not end with an infusion, it didn’t end with an answer as to when the infusion is going to be. I don’t even know how or where to begin. It turns out that CVS pharmacy is broken into two segments. One segment is the one that called on Monday rescheduling my delivery to Wednesday and the other segment is the…

Rituxan Infusion Tomorrow

Rituxan Infusion Tomorrow

I called the pharmacy first thing this morning and they reassured me that my Rituxan will be delivered first thing tomorrow morning. I am not going to call my infusion nurse and I’m going to hope for the best. Normally my infusions don’t go smoothly. There always seems to be a problem somewhere through the process. When the pharmacy changed I thought, great another infusion to give me agitation. Then it was all arranged weeks in advance. I was shocked….

Ocrevus Commercial

Ocrevus Commercial

I never watch TV through my TV carrier. I always watch through my Firecube. No matter what it is, unless it’s something that I record, I’m never on my TV. That being said, it’s also very rare I see commercials. However I was catching up on old Bravo shows that I neither recorded or watched while they aired. On the Bravo app, there’s commercials. When you’re watching an entire season of some thing you end up watching a lot of…

Rituxan infusion scheduled in a week

Rituxan infusion scheduled in a week

I can’t believe it’s been six months already. Well I guess it has because all my reminders went off. Actually about a week after my last infusion I started receiving phone calls to set up my appointment. It was crazy. Actually I thought CVS specialty pharmacy was crazy. I never used them for my Rituxan or my Ocrevus so I was so confused why they kept calling me. Sure enough another change with my insurance. Great, because those have always…

What’s happening in Multiple Experiences world

What’s happening in Multiple Experiences world

I’m doing a lot better with my new wheelchair now. I don’t love everything about the chair but I am consistently using it now. It turns horribly, I hate that. It is also difficult if you maneuver wrong and hit a wall. You can’t just do a simple correction. You have to move forward or back still hitting the wall to maneuver yourself off the wall, if that makes sense. The wheels that move this chair are in the middle…

End of summer marks next Rituxan infusion

End of summer marks next Rituxan infusion

Is summer over yet? I’m ready to put on my oversized sweatshirt. It doesn’t matter that I stay indoors with AC the humidity penetrates to my bones. I know this question was asked by Steve over at MSich Chronicles http://msichchronicles.blog/2020/07/29/evansville-heat/, but how do people with MS live in hot, humid places? I’m in countdown mode until I can officially say its Fall. Right around the time of my next Rituxan infusion. For any new readers, I switched back to Rituxan…

Does having MS cause an overactive immune system

Does having MS cause an overactive immune system

I saw this somewhere in the midst of the virus outbreak and have wondered about it ever since. If I have an overactive immune system why am I in such a quarantine from this virus? According to my neurologist, it is because of Rituxan. I take a medication that wipes out a strain of my white blood cells. I can understand that. It makes sense. It was another blogger who made the comment that they very rarely get sick. It…
