I FINALLY got my Humira into me 🙂 I had a wonderful nurse Christine, who will come out the next time too when I think I might try giving it to myself.
This time around, Susan, my counselor, and Amy, her student came to give me support. Thank God they were there! I was pretty revved up while we were all going through the paper work, etc. Susan caught on and realized I needed to get it over with so I could concentrate on everything she was saying.
First shot in the belly… I cried. Not out of pain… but yes it hurt, but bc I had been more emotionally anxious than I realized. Second shot.. not bad. So I asked that we do the third in my thigh… omg. I don’t know what I was thinking, when I thought that would be less painful. If every one was like that one, I wouldn’t be able to do this. Fourth shot, in the belly, and doable.
After everyone left, Amy stayed to make sure I was okay. I got weepy again, but then soon felt more myself, and glad as HELL it was over with!
My mom showed up and asked that I spend the day at least until after supper with them to make sure I was okay. I saw no point in it, but I am so glad I did.
First I was groggy which was doable. I was told that would probably happen. Then I was so sick to my stomach I laid on the couch until dinner.
I went with mom up to Amanda and Carrie’s, and laid on the couch there until I started feeling better. I should have took Gravol. I was so zonked by the time I went to bed, all I wanted to do was sleep and I couldn’t.
Next thing I knew, it was 4:59am and I had to get up, bc I was selling a car battery jumper thing for my mom and Grams, but the guy never showed! *shakes fists* I HATE that!
So I got my garbage and recycling out, and now I am going to jump in the shower before meeting with Holly to go grocery shopping. I’m POOPED!
