Weekly Humira...

Climbed by year and month


You have climbed 94/282 munros.

The registrar seemed to think that going to weekly injections of Humira (adalimumab) was probably the way to go, but it would need to be approved by my Consultant as he couldn't authorise it himself - it's too expensive!

I finally got the call yesterday afternoon confirming weekly injections are approved! To say we, Paul and I, are pleased is an understatement. We're are really relieved. It seems to be the only thing so far to have given us any real hope of beating this disease (Crohn's) down. So every tuesday I'll be injecting. Think I will do it in the evenings so I can sleep off the immediate side effects, I usually feel quite tired on the day. Hadn't done that before as I really didn't want to wait any longer. I was getting desperate to start getting better again.

Not sure I like the idea of injecting every week. Just I will do anything to feel good again. Anything.
