It's MS awareness week

Kicked off yesterday (12 March). Here is a fun fact from the newsletter I received today:

"Did you know that the average cost of someone living with MS in America is $69,000? The median household income is only $49,000."

You can read that as, "If you don't have insurance whilst receiving an MS diagnosis, you're fscked!"

Almost forgot

march infusion
Now that that is out of the way, I have to note that something happened which has never occurred in past infusions: I was tired. So tired! Probably ~2.5-3 hours after the infusion I just hit the wall. It didn't go away after a night's sleep either. I got up the day after being infused, went about my normal daily activities, and around mid-day I hit the wall...again. Was able to make it through the rest of the day, but it was tough. A fatigue like no other. The thing to note here is this is the one and only time this has happened. Side effect for some reason? I don't know.
