Today was one of those days when I inject twice.. early in the morning my daily injection of Forteo for the severe osteoporosis. Then sometime mid-afternoon, Humira. I have to calculate well to make sure I don't overdo it in one spot on my thighs.
As always, despite Humira being a pen and Forteo a needle (in sight), I am always SO nervous with Humira. And hesitate for several minutes before clicking the pen. Sometimes crying, sometimes praying, many times just feeling so sorry for myself. But always feeling thankful that it exists and that I'm so lucky to have access to it.
Today, however, while I hesitated, I remembered this community and for a few seconds thought of how many of the members here go through this same process every two weeks, like I do. And with that, I felt enough courage to click - and count. And it was over (and absolutely painless) so quickly.
Thank you so much for sharing your stories. I am very thankful to have found this community, I feel much less lonely in this journey. Knowing about others' challenges really helps me in these critical moments. 😀
