Humira feels like a weekly reminder that I have an incurable autoimmune disease. That this is what my life is like now. That this is what I have to look forward to. And at times it’s depressing. I wish I didn’t have to be on medications but I know that this medication is my best option right now.
I’m not one of those people who’s goal is to get into remission and go off of my medications. My medications are the reason why I’m in remission. I don’t what to know what would happen if I had to go off of the Humira. I’m sure the results would not be good though. I also don’t want to risk building up antibodies to this medication. Once that happens I won’t be able to go back on it and that’s not work the risk to me.
It’s hard though to deal with the weekly shot. For me it hurts a lot. I can’t wait for Humira to have a sting free option. Some people who take this medication don’t feel that much of a sting but for some reason I do.
Do you have any medications you dislike? Why do you dislike it? Do you have any medications that you do like?
Until next time!
