Current situation: flaring
Although I’m flaring I actually feel a teeny bit positive…
My gastro doc requested for me to see a psychiatrist or cognitive behaviour person because although most of the time I’m chipper and happy, there are times when Crohn’s gets me down and these times are becoming more frequent so it’s only right to go and talk to someone.

People do weekly roundups so I thought why the hell shouldn’t I jump on that bandwagon too. Slightly different though…
So most of the time I take my Humira shot every other week and it’s when I’m setting up to inject I usually think about what’s happened since the last time I had my dose – the good, the bad, fun things, things I’m grateful for…what kind of diary would be complete without some sort of bullet point list, right?! (I’m not quite at the bullet journal stage of my life and quite frankly think it’d be too much faff for me to not only create one but fill one in every day…I will admire yours though because they are so pretty!).

You’ve been diagnosed with and IBD (or possibly some sort of other autoimmune disease) and you’ve been told that Humira is a treatment option for you…I was reminded about how I felt about Humira when I saw my “on this day” on Facebook this morning and it’s still totally relevant for me…
The first medication I was put on after my diagnosis was azathioprine (pet name “aza”) but after suspected pancreatitis I was switched to Humira. It sounded wonderful – I’d only have to take it every two weeks, a lot of people get good results and virtually no side effects! Hurrah! Continue reading “So You’re Starting Humira…”
