Sexy and I know it

So I'm getting all my meds switched up again. I'm starting a couple of different ones, so I have to stagger when I start taking everything, in case I have a reaction to something. Last night I started a new one, and it's for nerve pain, and it's like MAGIC. I slept ALL NIGHT without waking up. That hasn't happened in over ten years.

Meanwhile, I stopped taking Tecfidera, because the side effects were getting worse and worse. I'm going to try copaxone, which is a daily injection, and we'll see how that goes.

I'm also getting some new something that's supposed to make me less tired, because I have to have a nap every day. Or two. It's pretty pathetic. I'm like an infant, and can only be happy and function for 6 hours or less per day, and that's not in 6 hours in a row.

The weather has been crazy around here. It's wet and freezing. I got out our big jackets (which is to say, they're warm AND waterproof), and they didn't quite fit, so we went to get new ones. Everyone was excited to have a new coat. I was not excited to get people new coats, because they cost a lot of money... and I got the cheap ones.

Thaddeus and I went to the dentist today. He had to get a tooth pulled, because his adult tooth is coming in, but his baby tooth was NOT coming out. So it got pulled.

I also had some work done today. My back teeth have been hurting, but there's nothing wrong with them, so I get to get a night guard, because apparently, I grind my teeth at night. Sexy, I know.
