The Final Countdown

One week to go till Day 1 of Round 2 Lemtrada treatment.

I’m not as scared this time around and somehow more scared all at once.

Last time it was because I didn’t know what to expect and this time because…well I do.

I’m happy to report that I will have the same amazing nurse as I did for Round 1. I felt like I was so well cared for and that definitely eases some worries.

I’m less apprehensive about the treatment this time around and more worried for what comes afterwards.

Will the recovery be the same? Some have reported it as being worse while others have said it was easier.

So now I’m just waiting to pick up my pre meds to prep for treatment.

I’m mostly settled into the new crib.

Gonna make some healthy meals for infusion week.

My doc asked me why I seem so apprehensive and not looking forward to it.

And it’s not that I’m dreading it, I think I just have more banking on this one now.

Maybe this will be a game changer

Hell, I could really fucking benefit from one

Right about now

One week to go

  1. I’m glad you have the same nurse, it will hopefully help to know who’ll be there for you and feel reassured that you will be well looked after. I can see why you’re apprehensive about recovery and also wanting so much for this to help. Positive thinking – I will keep my fingers crossed that it is a game changer. Sounds like you’re doing well getting prepared and sorting out healthy meals in advance. My fingers are very much crossed for you! xx

    1. I suck at these but I answered your qs! My 11 Questions:
      1 If you could step into any book which book would it be.
      Harry Potter without a doubt. I like how far from reality it is.
      2 How do you like to wake up in the morning?
      On my own without an alarm and feeling rested.
      3 Besides writing what would be your ideal job?
      Counselling at risk youth in a community centre.
      4 What is your sense of humor like?
      Dark, sarcastic and often misunderstood.
      5 Would you prefer to live in the woods or by the ocean?
      The ocean. Something about it just calls to me
      6 Sunshine or thunderstorms?
      Thunderstorms. Even pre eye pain, the sun is just too much for my senses. Thunderstorms are soothing.
      7 If you could only use one mode of transportation to get everywhere what would that mode be?
      I don’t know and I’ve never tried it but I think a Segway would be cool
      8 What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?
      French vanilla
      9 Tent or Mansion?
      Whichever is colder in temperature. I need AC so I guess mansion unless there’s some glam tent option.
      10 If you were the monster that lived under the bed what type of monster would you be?
      The one that is more into self flagellation than anything else.
      11 What was the name of your first stuffed animal?
      Ummmm….it wasn’t an animal it was Pierrot he was like this clown type thing.
