Hi guys, thanks for the fantastic responses. It seems as if we shouldn’t attempt to even miss a day, and it's fast becoming clear that I will have to arrange something if I cannot do the injections. WonderfulWorld: She doesn't do them because she's too scared. She closes her eyes and looks away even...

Thanks for the advice RuSmolikova. Does anyone else have any feedback on this ? I have arranged the nurse to come out on a few of the days and inject her, but the nurse said that she cannot do it for the whole week. These MS nurses are actually beginning to sound a lot like sales men to me. Once the...

Hi Guys, Just updating everyone. The Copaxone is going quite well. We did ask the nurse about the alcohol wipes but we were told there was no significant scientific evidence to prove that it helps the injection in anyway, but we can use one pre-injection if we wish???! Small lumps are appearing unde...

HI Guys, WOW thanks for all the advice! Firstly, our MS nurse did not actually show us that we had to use an alcohol wipe on the injection site, so we go straight for the kill. But thinking about it now, it should be sterile, I will query this with the Nurse on her next visit. LoveActually: Please d...
