I injected my first dose of Humira seven weeks ago and am due for another dose today. Have been doing the minimum activity-wise, as I’m still in survival mode. It takes quite a bit of energy and perseverance to go to work, eat well, don’t stress and get enough rest when you’re not feeling great. So the end result is that I’ve been scaling back quite a few things in my life that isn’t very crucial at the moment. I hope the Humira will kick in soon so that I don’t have that flare feeling anymore.
I opted to use the pen to inject instead of the typical needle as I want to think about it as little as possible. The idea of injecting myself kind of freaks me out a bit if I’m honest.
