Haha okay thanks, I was getting worried about not following the rules! I'm not skinny, so I guess at least I don't have to worry about that, haha. I did it in my thigh. (Does anyone know why it's the front of my thigh...my EMT friends all thought you would have to do it on your side, but the humira instructions specifically say front)
The second one I pinched, so at least it was just the first one I forgot about. I know it goes in and everything, and you can tell because of when the yellow part comes down, but its still such a foreign concept to me that I am getting medicine by doing this. I guess I'm just so used to daily pills. And now the fact that yes, I'm giving myself the shot but I can't actually see the medicine going through or anything. I don't know. Today I'm starting to wean off the prednisone I'm so so nervous! :/
Thanks for the replies! :)
25 year old female, diagnosed with Crohn's in 2002 after being misdiagnosed with Lyme Disease for a year. Have been on Prednisone, Asacol, Entocort, Remicade, random antibiotics (cipro, flagyl, avalox, etc), and Mercaptopurine, (even the lowest dosage was messing up my liver, argh) in the past.
Currently on Predisone and (finally!) just started Humira.
