Oh, My Achin' Joints...

     I better slice you off a hunk of cheese to go with this whine...so let me just get this out of the way.  "DAYUM, MY JOINTS HURT!" (Borrowing the wonderful spelling of condemnation from my friend!)

     I'm three days post TYSABRI infusion again and, as in the first go-round infusion, I'm left with some serious fatigue and incredible joint pain.  I finally emailed Dr. She Who Will Not Be Named to discuss this today...she fired a response back (I think she is hot wired to the Internet somehow 24/7!).  She wants to check me for neutralizing antibodies now, which sounds way tooooo complicated for me to understand.

     I did leave work yesterday after only 4 hours and returned to the Bat Cave to lie about with the Princess of Darkness (kitten)...this helped some.  But I went right back in today and jumped on the bucking bronco of my job, only to leave tonight completely fatigued and pained.  Fortunately, I was working partnered with someone who carried both our loads (that sounds a bit like a Beavis and Butthead joke about to happen, doesn't it?!?), so I managed to stumble through the day.

     The weekend approaches and I am grateful.  I'm tired, I'm whiny, I'm crabby, and I feel isolative.  Hmmm...I'm just trying now to figure out how THIS is any different from my norm??? LOL

     Hopefully this systemic joint discomfort will subside soon...hopefully the Princess of Darkness will have mercy on me and let me sleep in this morning...hopefully there will be no "emergencies" among friends to pry me out of the Bat Cave...hopefully this nasty "whine" I'm indulging in will not intoxicate me into a stupor...I'm full of hope...and probably full of crap as well...
