Copaxone anniversary

Today is my second anniversary on Copaxone. I have not missed a dose in these two years and I have been so fortunate to not have any relapses. Woohoo! While everyone else is getting very excited about the approval of oral disease-modifying drugs, I am sticking with what works for me. As we say in Oklahoma, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!"

Nonetheless, I am thrilled that oral meds will soon be available for those sisters and brothers who have difficulty or no response from injections.

I hope the summer finds everyone having at least one really fun thing to anticipate. Stay cool!

Found your blog. Thanks for posting it. I haven't found many blogs with personal accounts with MS. Good luck on your journey.

This is great news! And a great blog, thanks for sharing your experiences! I was diagnosed with MS in September 2010 and recently started blogging at

Please check it out, I'd love your input!

I am about a week away from my 2 year anniversary on Rebif. It's funny you say that about oral meds - my mom, who is totally neurotic and constantly blames herself for my having MS, always talks about the oral treatment and how great that will be. I'm sure she feels helpless and is looking for something to latch onto. My response is always the same - I'm fine with shots, mom. It's a very small part of my day. I'm happy for the folks that stop taking meds because they can't do the shots... I like your attitude!

Hi Kelley,

I hope you are doing well.

Sorry about my lack of visits.
Spike's, our dog, illness, quick death nov/dec and being so ill jan/feb to march meant no visits.

Since then I have been spending more time sitting in my wheelchair I have also not been visiting.

I just passed by to say hello.
I hope you are doing well.

I just stopped by because I saw that you visited my blog today; thought I would return the favor. And I'm surprised that this last entry is from several years ago. I hope you are still doing well, whether on copaxone or not, and that you return to the "joy" of sharing your life with us.

BTW, as I am on the end of my last box of Copaxone, and it doesn't seem to have been keeping me stable this last year, I am about to just give it up -- but I think I will save that decision until after I see my neuro next month.

Be well.
