Dealing With A Knee Replacement And MS

Almost 64 and ready to get moving! I have more healing to do and more walking to practice, but it is coming together. I still have shots every other night to give myself for my MS, I hate them. The shots burn, welt up, get red hot and hurt huge, I do it because it helps my bad blood cells have something else to attack other than me. Copaxone is given in the belly, hips, legs and the hardest under the arm. The shots cost thousands of dollars a month, I get them free because I am a test subject, I have to report symptoms every month. I go to all the MS events I can, I do procrastinate and get out of them when I can. I guess I get tired of the same old subjects they seem to talk about. I am always hoping for a cure or a new way to handle the problem. I have good days and bad days. I push myself to hard no matter what kind of a day I am having. Work is how I deal with pain, it makes me escape it. Don;t get me wrong I love to work I am very OCD about my house and yard. Taking the time off to get my knee done has been very hard. My daughter is doing most of the house and my husband is doing what he can to help, but when you are a nut like me it has to be my way, this is hard on everyone. I am so lucky to have the help, they are so good to me. I am doing OK. It can be a bit much at times, but I am dealing with all of the issues and will do it. I can do anything is what I say to myself every day.
