No problem, UC spouse. I like talking about myself! I have been keeping a notebook to take notes at the end of each day since Humira. I wish I would have done it years ago, because I get mixed up with how long I took what, etc. Well it's been 5 days since my injection. Yesterday I didn't have any bms, which was the first time in 2 weeks I didn't have bloody D. I saw the blood lightening yesterday morning but last night I saw more blood. Still no bms yet today. I had more energy yesterday and was able to get more done than lately. As for side effects, I have been having more headaches than usual and the welts are still there. I took Claritin the day after the infusion and Zyrtec the second day(for me, the Claritin worked better), now I am only applying hydrocortisone cream. The ones on my stomach are the most frustrating. Nothing else really, except I am terrifed of getting the next dose in 9 days, I do not enjoy having myself injected with hot lava but I will do it if it means I can get my life back! How is your husband doing? Did he get a rash at the injection sites? Any tips to make the injections less painful?
