I need help. Does anyone take shots for their MS? Do you take Copaxone? I am back on it again after being on Avonex. On Avonex, I would be sick for a day or 2 with flu-like symptoms. I hardly had any good days, so I wanted to change. On the Copaxone, I get huge hard welts for 4-5 days each time I take a shot. I stopped taking them. I tried heating shot area before hand, and ice-packing afterwards. The shot area was also VERY itchy - I used hydrocortozone. Does anyone have any tips to help me? Please?

I had the same symptoms. Turned out that I had set the auto-injector too shallow. I set it deeper and I haven't had similar problems since.

A good introduction by Cynthia Stewart, to the Tao, using analogy. And metaphor. If you find it interesting, please share

Jenny Hansen's 2nd blogiversary was yesterday 4/01. She is starting off her 3rd year doing the A to Z Blogging Challenge for the month of April. It reminds me of when I started my blog last April 1, 2012 and did the My Name Is Not Bob (MNINB) April Blogging Challenge. It was a good challenge for me as a new bloggger, and I met some incredible people in the process! You can see most of them on our own website Wordsmith Studio. There are some new folks as well. I am slowly getting back to the group after a health break.
Also, Jenny was my first mentor in the world of blogging and I owe so much to her. She helped me when I was just a commentator who had a million questions about blogging. Thanks Jenny for everything!

A fellow group member from my online writing support group just published her book! Check it out on Amazon.com: Jennifer Chow's "The 228 Legacy."
 
Yay! My new book is out:

I have too many books and I know some of them I will never read again. But it is so hard to get rid of them. Part of it is i like building a library. Maybe this article will help!

Introduction

Welcome to my Google+ page. I want to live my life more fully than I have for the past six years. I want to love my live as I did before my body was plagued with chronic pain. I have begun to do so by writing again and blogging. My blog web site is "Bends in the Road: One Woman's Journey Through Life's Turning Points"  (www.bendsintheroad.com). I  hope that you will join me as I explore how I and others manage through life's different ups and downs. Please drop by any time. I look forward to meeting you!
