Well I was supposed to get Humira last Friday but did not do it since the pen was a little off, on Saturday I decided to try another pen from a different box well same story there.
I was starting to panic a little bit since I know that the pens are REALLY expensive.
Well I called the pharmacy on sat but there was nothing they could do until Monday.

Today I went to meet up with the pharmacist and a lady from the company that imports Humira, and then I was really starting to panic :S
I had no idea that this was such a big deal.
I have been taking the temp in my fridge and it is 4°C so that is fine and I went over it in my head there was nothing I had done wrong.
But I went to the meeting almost with tears in my eyes I was so afraid that I had done something wrong to mess this up.

Well the good news is that I did not do anything wrong :) and the funny thing is that my pens where ok they just had fog on the outside of the glass witch you could dry of and the med was fine. I feel like the biggest idiot in the world.
But I am so glad that I did not waste this expensive pens, that I did not care.

So today I got my pen number 7 and well I don't feel any difference at the moment. I am actually having a flare but I hope the Humira will kick in very soon.

Not to worry isergodur, we all have that fog from time to time and for me its not on a pen. Glad its all ok now.
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.
