It began with the itching, just a little bit at first. I told Dizzy there must be lots of little bugs around at the moment. But then it started increasing (maybe the bugs were having baby bugs….). Until itchiness all the time! Itchy and red in one spot for 15 minutes, then it would go and pop up in another spot for 15 minutes, and this would continue all day! Dizzy was very confused and was keeping her distance, she didn’t want to be an itchy, red Dizzy donkey!
Dizzy was reading her book down the other end of the bed…
Dizzy wasn’t much help with her suggestions either. Maybe I wasn’t eating enough ginger nut biscuits? 🙂
But then the 3 monthly tecifdera blood tests came back. Liver too high and white blood cells too low.
All a results of the tecfidera (our MS medication).
So me and Dizzy are drug free again, for the time being, while the itching stops being itchy and the white blood cells increase in population. 🙂 The plan is to have another blood test in a month and to then try again. I’m not sure if I’m sure about this plan though. Won’t my body remember it’s not too keen on these tables anymore? Dizzy certainly doesn’t forget if she’d decided she doesn’t like something! But the other option is to start decided on a new medication again. It took us 3 years the first time!
Would it be bad to just let the donkeys decide? 🙂
Has anyone else tried a medication again, after their body seemed to have decided it’d gone off it a bit? And was it ok the second time? 🙂 xxx
