I will find a way or make one. –Phillip Sidney 1554-1586
All that I am and all that I shall ever be, I owe to my Angel Mother.

Make sure your suffering has meaning…
After my GI and I decided the Humira was a no go, he put me on Remicade. The infusion isn't bad at all, if I was able to choose one or the other I would have def picked the Remicade, no pain makes me smile. I ended up having an allergic reaction to it though that sent me to the ER with full body hives, and needing 5 shots of Valium before I passed out.
I find that the shot does burn, while the fluid is going in. Once it is in it does not hurt. So you just need to be ready for the burning sensation.
For my first time with the 4 shots a humira nurse actually came over to help me inject. Expecially the first one as you don't know what to expect.
I personally get my boyfriend to do it as it makes it easier to concentrate on not jerking my leg away...
