i went 9 weeks between injections!!

i actually went 9 weeks between injections. i am trying not to get overly excited about this . it seems my eyes are always better in january and get worse as the heat and humidity increase. for those of you who are interested , i am taking the magnesium aspartate form of a magnesium supplement.(maginex). it's too early to tell really if this could be the factor making the difference.

I'm glad to hear that you are doing better, Kathy. We'll hope that the heat and humidity holds off for awhile longer for you.

Shirley in Arkansas who is not looking forward to the heat and humidity that the summer brings, either.

i "might should have had them " at 8 weeks. one of the things i did was to not get on this bb at the end as it does at times stress me out. i can not stop thinking about certain things that might help or hurt.

Tell me it's not true! The bulletin board stresses you out? We can't have that happen. You must let us know when we are stressing you out or you are worried or concerned about something and we will discuss Roy's underwear or have a "small" party-whatever it takes.

Just being on the computer is somewhat stressful for me. Maybe it's because of the eyes not cooperating better. I am able to see lots better, since surgery however.
Joann in Ft Smith where it's snowing, ground is white, & it'll be to Little Rock before you know it. By the way I drove 14 miles this morning, first time I've driven over one mile since last August.

Send that snow on over my way. I'm waiting very patiently for it. :-)
I'm so glad to hear that your eyes are doing better and you've been able to drive. Just hang in there and hopefully things will keep on getting better.
Maybe the computer will be less stressful for you too, now with your eyes doing better.

Shirley, just a couple hours away from Joann's snow.

good for you, joann! the computer also stresses me out at times. i think i basically don't like machines. the computer also really hurts my eyes if i stay on it too long.

thanks for your kindness. once the anticipation of the shots is over with( of course this anxiety was prolonged last time because i lived dangerously with beb) and the side effects go away i usually am okay. i always feel a bit off for awhile after them,also. the bouts of really bad pain really throw me tho. i don't want the celebrex in my system all the time as it makes me pretty lethargic.

Good news, Kathy, about the time between botox injections. My injections go worse, because of the cold weather, in the winter - but that again proves our theory that we are all so different. Keep us informed about the magnesium aspartate.

i will. i DON'T want to get too optimistic yet about it as so many people's hopes on this bb get dashed when something doesn't work. i mean there are other contributing factors here, like the weather seemed to be kind of steady and again i was on the estrogen phase of my premphase, which i take to hopefully prevent osteoporosis. my eyes are worse now as i am on the other part of it.
