I joined a gym a week or so ago with my husband and we are loving it. I am swimming nearly every day, at my own pace of course, and cycled for first time 2 days ago with my husband (stationary bike or I would wobble and fall off) and realised how unfit I am!!
We are still at slimming club but I think this will go as we continue with the gym, way too expensive to do both. I am aching in places I forgot I had! .. Still 3 stone 3 lbs lighter..
Health wise I am ok, not good but not bad, and my hip since I have been swimming is so much better.
Still daily injecting with copaxone, its becoming difficult to find a site thats clear to inject into as swelling is taking time to go down.
I have done a lot of reflecting recently and having MS is a positive thing for me, yes I said positive! I have made new friends online and day-to-day because of it, and most importantly God has been so good and has never failed me throught all of it. What a great and loving God I have.
No matter what God never fails me, can we say the same thing about ourselves? No - we fail all the time.

I'm glad your doing better. I had to stop Copaxone because of the swelling and itching. I still have lumps from the shots.

As regards to the failure thing...........TELL ME BOUT IT!!!! I shud have an 'F' branded on my forehead as opposed to the loser sign!! :)

Copaxone was my favorite until I had a bunch of reactions.

Love what you say about God. I don't think I've been listening to God enough recently, and your post made me realize I need to listen more.

And getting in shape--I need to work on that much more!

Copaxone is SC--can you rotate shots more?

Just well done and keep going. It's not easy to start the exercising but if you can find something that really suits you then hang on to it and keep on with it. I have found that doing step ups in front of the late night news is a good thing for me!
