Three o'clock and all is well...

...well, not so well.

I don't like being awake in the middle of the night. I don't like that it is quiet. I don't like that there is nobody to talk to (although in the age of digital communication that is never really true).

This morning's nocturnal awareness is caused by side effects of last night's injection. I shouldn't complain really. The side effects were much, much worse taking Avonex, and they happened pretty much after every injection. This is only about the fourth time I've really noticed anything at all in about five months of taking Betaferon. Even better, as I took the injection hours and hours ago this is the tail end of the side effects, a couple of paracetamol and wrapping up warm in my fluffy dressing gown and I'll probably soon be back asleep. Right now, though, I still feel as if I'm getting over a dose of the 'flu!
