I got four shots yesterday and I'm not going to lie, the first one she did in my thigh, I said every swear word I could think of, it sent me to the fricken moon! Then the one in the stomach she did was much better. I have more padding there. So I did the next two shots myself. I was so nervous that I bruised myself on the first one and the others , have no bruises.
Of course I don't feel any different today, it takes time. No headache, rash or back pain to speak of. I had some real funky dreams though and I guess people have them on this medication.
My nurse was the best, we prayed when it was all done. I did sit a cry for a few, it was just overwhelming that I go to this point and that I was actually taking this medication. She was so positive and said so many people benefit for it and she said HUMira is from HUMANS and it will work for you. Just a positive nurse.
I will keep you posted!
