Rebif Trouble?

Hi everyone! I was diagnosed in December 2017 and started taking Rebif January 2018. It’s been working well and I don’t have side effects. The thing I’m still really struggling with is giving myself the injections. It seems like it gets worse and worse. Sometimes I sit there for 45 minutes before I can press the button! I don’t have a fear of needles, but I just get anxious when it’s time to do it. Just wondering if anyone else is struggling with that or did struggle? Any tips or support would be awesome!

@gosows4659 , it’s natural about being apprehensive when about to cause one’s self some potential discomfort.

You just have to weigh up the benefits of doing the injections against the very short term discomfort. If you’re managing to hold the MS at bay, then there’s no competition……

Or – get yourself put on a more effective (and non-injectable) med.
