I did it! I totally did it! I am so proud of myself!! (plus a little medical update)
I did it!!! I am SO proud of myself.
When the Humira was delivered to my desk this morning at work, I thought for sure I was going to vomit and then my second thought was "I can NOT do this!"
Well, guess what?!?!?!
I did it! I gave myself ALL FOUR injections. I did it! and honestly, it didn't even really hurt.
I do have 4 small raised areas on my belly now, but its done! in 2 weeks, I will do 2 more injections, then I will do 1 every other week for at least a year.
According to my GI specialist, I probably will not start feeling too many side effects of the drug or the tearing down on my immune system until after the next dose in 2 weeks.
Hopefully I will be one of those people that don't experience any side effects. (crossing my fingers!)
Thank you for all of your continued prayers and please please keep them coming for us!!!
