    Congratulations on your second Moderna, Sunshine. Good that the side effects seem to be waning. I hope the walking improves.

      Glad to know you are beginning to get back to your normal Sunshine. The 2nd shot can cause a wallop, but I hope you are about through yours and then you will be fully vaccinated. It is a good feeling.

        I did walk 1000 steps yesterday, thankfully.

          No step counts for 3/5 and 3/13 because the pedometers weren't behaving right.

            That’s a good deal of walking, Agate. It has to help. I find that if we have taken a walk - usually .6 - .7 miles - I have a better night sleep but more spastic pain in the evening.

                If the pedometer wasn't going haywire, I found some of those days impressive too. Maybe the Copaxone I've been taking for 3 months now is actually bringing about some improvement.

                It's not known for doing that in any noticeable way but I do seem to have more energy, particularly now that the pain I was having has calmed down. (For the last couple of days I've been able to sleep without extra pillows propping my back and neck. For a couple of weeks I've been able to do more things with my left arm.)

                And definitely dreams have returned, and bladder control is better. I didn't expect any noticeable improvement from restarting Copaxone but I seem to be getting it.

                Or maybe it's mind over matter.
