Four days is very good for a first bout, so I should leave it at that and have a drink tomorrow evening: you could probably do with one. I very rarely managed a full five days, certainly didn't the first time, mainly because I got so weepy and as you say "emotional, cold, shivery and tired." When you feel like that, every thing that happens makes you fear the worst, especially in the middle of the night. It's not just MS symptoms either: I am normally not fazed by very much, but I have lain awake, unable to get back to sleep, when I have heard what I was convinced was someone trying to break in, not thinking that the alarm would go off if they did and they would have to be jolly clumsy burglars to make such a noise anyway. It was only a fox, but even hedgehogs can be rather noisy when all is quiet outside. So please, go easy on yourself, and next time work it so that you start on Sunday or Monday! I am overdue starting on my latest booster course dose of metronidizole. I should have started it on Sunday, but felt too down even to think about it, then on Wednesday thought I might as well bite the bullet. So I took two, but by 16.00 was so miserable I thought that this was silly, especially since we have dinner guests tonight. So I will start again this Sunday. Coward!
