To many of you this will seem like a very small thing....you will think I am such a wussy. But for me this is honestly a major milestone and achievement.
I gave myself two Humira injections tonight....up unil now my wife gave them to me...but I am out of town, so I had to do it myself.
This from a guy who has passed out during or after a blood test or shot ...more than once. I get quesy watching ER on NBC..... I passed out once when an employee showed me her cut finger. When I was 6 or 7 it took four people to hold me down for a shot. I can't stand the idea of a shot or sharp needles....
I don't ever think I could give myself a regular injection but because of the self injecting pen it was easy for me to do it....I put one shot in each thigh, it was the first time in that area...all of the others have been in the stomach. The pain was only from the burn of the humira...If my wife is available I will still have her give me the shots...but for now, I know I can do it myself...and if I can, then anyone can.
