What should I chase it with this morning?  Probably my usual diet pepsi, and mentos :)  Have you guys seen that commercial on diet coke and mentos?  My husband must have watched it 5 times in a row last night...

I was thinking a shot of vodka but I guess diet pepsi would work :D

Well, what did you decide? Since it was in the morning, I would have suggested an Irish Coffee... Mid morning, maybe a bloody mary... lunch, I'd say a tom collins.... late afternoon / early evening martini or cosmo... and late evening, uh, lets see... tequila straight up, no chaser... but that's just my suggestion... :)

Taking the shots at 7 in the morning just seems wrong ... Craig

Hey, craig.  7am is sleeping in for me!  I get up @ 4:30am during the work week.  My 3-year-old daughters graciously let me sleep until 6:30am on Saturday and Sunday.  That's why Diet Pepsi seems to be the drink of the hour for me :)

I took my Enbrel this morning in the stomach for the first time...It hurt and burned much more than the leg! Do you find this to be the case?

Hey RAGirl, for me, the stomach is less painful than my thighs... I used to only inject in my thighs, but I switched to my stomach... sorry it was painful for you.. :(

0430am? Holy cow.. I get up at 6 during the week and around 8 on the weekends.. I would not be a nice person if I had to wake up at 430...

I take my shots in the morning too, if I don't, I'll forget.. :) What time do you do yours Craig?

Just to reiterate what Ducky just said, RAgirl, I've recently found out that my stomach is much less sensitive than my legs.  The nurse who taught me to self-inject said to only use the thighs, but I've read that you can use the stomach as well.  I've used my stomach for the last two injections, and I haven't even had an injection site reaction (had them all the time in my thighs).

Hey El.,
It's not that 7am is early, I'm always up early (3:15 am Durango time right now), but it seems too early to poke myself nono

I thought everybody did their shots in the stomach? I've never tried the leg, but I'm way too skinny, I think that would hurt like h%#l.

315? Good lord... Do you ride that early? Or are you just an early bird? Today is my day for my injection... not real sure what time I'm gonna do it though... probably around lunch time... :(

3:15!!!!!!  Do you have insomnia, Craig?  3:15 is too early for even me.  I can't even imagine; I have a hard enough time getting up at 4:30.  As far as poking that early, I'd rather get it over with right away.  I get so busy with the girls in the evenings, that it's easier to poke in the morning when I'm getting ready for the day.

3:15, huh?  I bet you see some spectacular sun rises.  I miss Colorado so much...

My son has a school trip today, he had to be at school at 4:00am.
I'm usually up by 6:00 though. I really like to get my work done early and get outside.
