so, it’s been confirmed: I’m officially participating in a Teva clinical trial to play with the new three times a week therapy that is moving toward FDA approval in approximately one year. the new 40mg syringes are being compared to the existing once a day 20mg therapy…so I could have been selected for what I’m already on…figured it was worth a try!
and finally yesterday, I found out I was randomized for the 40mg/3x/week! super excited! four days a week I do not have to experience the pain of an injection – yahoo!!
cool factor>>while I really wanted to give the 40mg a try, I knew I could not control the outcome….so I gave the decision up to the Universe…un-gripping my attachment to the outcome…and look what happened! note to self: do that often.
keep y’all posted on how it goes. I kinda butchered my first shot yesterday @ the doc’s office, but the clinical researcher said it looked like I got most of it in…as I watched with terror as about half of the liquid spilled out on the table. I blame the new AutoJect 2 pen I received. sure. no user error involved. nope. 😉
I am setting the intention that this journey to be less exciting, less painful, and more freeing than my last adventures in learning how to self-administer injections. 🙂
ps. I have been posting a daily What Went Well (WWW) on FB these days a la Positive Psychology style. wheeee! – it’s been so fun…and certainly helps keep my positive mojo flowing. been thinking I should start a separate blog stream for my daily WWWs. huh. I’m copying them all into my daily Morning Pages. maybe something I will focus on for the writing class I just began on Tuesday…(I always gotta have something to relieve the work stress.)
what provides you relief from the daily life, work, family, relationship stressors out in the world? share below! xo
