I'm in the same frame of mind as everyone else regarding Humira because it's been a God send for me too. I've only had the initial loading dose which I injected myself with a week ago but that was enough to convince me that things were finaly on the up at last. After a few days I began to feel much better than I've felt in a long time and I'm not experiencing any noticeable side affects unlike prednisolone which totally messes me up. Before I started the injections I was a bit apprehensive about it because I've had to self inject before with the anticoagulant daltaparin which could be fairly painful at times but I was really surprised to find out that there is no discomfort whatsoever with these injection pens/pumps, the only sensation felt is from the firm pressure that is applied to prevent leakage during the injection process. I found the whole experience pleasant and in no way daunting especially after being taught what to do by the nurse Tina who was brilliant. To sum things up I feel so grateful for having been prescribed Humira because it's given me hope and a brighter future.
