We have been together now for seven months. I met you on the rebound after an abrupt split from Rebif. I don’t know how I even started with Rebif. Everyone said that Rebif was great and would help me. When I complained about Rebif and how I was being treated, people that knew Rebif best acted shocked. They said Rebif never made anyone else feel the way I felt. They knew better but wanted us to stay together. Rebif and I had a two month relationship and it was rocky from the start. I thought that staying together was the right thing to do even though I knew Rebif was destructive after the second week. One of the biggest problems was that we were seeing each other too frequently. It was too early in the relationship to be seeing each other three times a week.
When Rebif and I broke up, the thought of seeing you only once a week was very appealing. I thought you would rescue me. I liked the freedom that seeing each other only once a week offered. At first, our weekly get togethers were in small doses and then we moved on to something stronger. Now, after seven months, I see that even once a week is too much. One day a week, 52 times a year is too much time to waste on something who’s value cannot be easily measured. If we stay together, I will throw away almost two months a year.
I know you are not forcing me to stay but sometimes I feel like I don’t have a lot of options. Copaxone’s track record is too unreliable and I could never go back to Rebif. While I could go it alone, I am strongly considering spending time with Tysabri. I have learned my lesson about spending too much time with a new partner so I will only see Tysabri once a month. Tysabri has a lot to offer. I want to take advantage of the benefits before it’s too late.
Avonex, how can you make me stay? I would stay if you would treat me better, if you would stop making me so sick. I would stay if you would prove that you were really here to help. I don’t know how long our relationship will last. I am hoping we can make a quick split. We may only be together for another three weeks. Be good to me for our last days together. I have been faithful and consistent and deserve a break. If things go well for the next few weeks, I will consider an ongoing relationship. Otherwise, I am moving on.
