So, I had my Humira in the fridge for a whole month prior to getting up the nerve to give it. I finally gave it on Saturday! I took it to work with me to give there, and figured I'd have one of my nurse co-workers do it if I couldn't. :) I had heard it burns, but WHOA! I wasn't expecting it to burn that much! I almost couldn't inject the whole amount! I used my thigh. I know people have given recommendations in the past......would just like to know what has worked for other people! I feel like I've been having an RA "flare" for a few months, and only 6days after giving the Humira, I feel like it has at least taken the edge off! :) I already give myself Methotrexate injections, which are a piece of cake compared to the Humira! Let me know if anyone has any ideas for me! :) Thanks! Jen
