If you're running out of injection sites....

I've been on Copaxone 5 years (or is it 6 :oops: just can't remember!). I took a year off to have my son who is nearly 4 weeks old now.

I have started back on Copaxone last week.

Just to say, before I took the break from Copaxone I had run out of usable sites because of lipoatrophy and hard lumps. It was getting very hard ...

I've been slacking. I admit. And now I guess I'm paying for it and need to get back on track ASAP. Any help appreciated.

For the past 18 months, I've had no symptoms - occasional tingling in the feet and lower legs during a flagyl pulse - but felt great with no issues in between. Last summer - - because I was feeling SO good... and was so busy, ...

I'm so upset right now

....and just need to vent to my friends on this website.

I was just approached (or should I say confronted) at the grocery store by this woman who asked "are you REALLY handicapped?" (because I parked in the handicapped parking)

My response was "well yes, I have multiple sclerosis...and what is your problem, are you just rude?" She responded..."really?" and my response was "REALLY!"

WTF, where do these people get off?

Thanks for listening.

Does she really have MS?

I'm sorry to bring this subject to this site but I have questions that I need some help with. Long story short, I've dated a woman for 6 years and three years ago she told me she had MS while we were in the middle of having some relationship problems.
