Ok so for the last 5 years I have yet to gain remision, and according to my last colonoscopy (last week) I am quite inflammed, so much that the scope actually got stuck. So the doc wants me to start Humira.. I got the medication in, and for a week now have been tring to get a nurse to come out and show me how to do my first injection(my doc insisted that someone show us how). So because both me and my husband work in the am we need night time, soo after the fax didnt work and the first nuse couldn't come out at night we have found a RN who can accomidate.. Only one problem, now I'm really scared. Last night at 9 pm we set up for him to come tonight at 8pm ( I have a final today at 5 so I had to schedule late). well NEways. I was sorta releived we had bad luck and no one was available.. I know i realy need to start this medication because the asacol and constant entocort are not helping like they should. but I'm scared of so many things.. Will it hurt? if so how bad? Im absolutely terified of needles and have to look away and sing while they stick me. I have to get FOUR shots to day.. FOUR!! thats alot.. and then I dont know what im gonna feel like in the morning and I have to work.. I really wanted to do this on Friday but the rep is only in town today.. he's from 3 hours away. Ok so I feel really stupid for being scared and nervous about this stupid little needle and stupid shot but I'm really freaked out about it.. And now the fact that I'm gonna have to take it until the next step I have to take.. I don't know.. I"m just confused and upset

There are moments in your life that makes you and sets the course of who you're going to be. Sometimes there little, subtle moments. Sometimes, they're big moments you never saw coming. No one ask for their life to change, but it does. It's what you do afterwards that counts. That's when you find out who you are.
