I've been on Humira now for almost 2-years. Sometimes I get the fluid showing up on my skin, most of the time I don't. My personal opinion (and it just is an opinion) is that the pen causes a suction - almost like it's trying to give you a hickey - and so when the suction is strong enough, it kind of just sucks a small amount of the fluid back up. Do you find that the injections hurt? Mine hurt incredibly bad. It brings me to tears every time.
Diagnosed 13+ years ago.
Been in remission for short periods of time but each time I come out of remission my disease seems to have spread. No longer isolated in my ileum, now from stomach down to rectum.
