I have been on Humira for about 7 years now. In my opinion, it is the reason I am able to still go to work each day. So far, I am not experiencing any side effects from this medication. I do the injection myself each two weeks. At worst, I sometimes get a little bruise at the injection point, but even that is rare. I am taking Humira along with a weekly dose of Methotrexate. This seems to be a good combination for me right now.
I was diagnosed with my RA 10 years ago. There have been ups and downs, but overall, I'm still living my life. I continue to work full time in my office job, and I am single for the first time in my adult life. By nature I am an optimist, and I am too stubborn to let this hideous disease get the best of me. However, there are times when it is difficult to maintain this attitude. Friends and co-workers do not understand the level of pain, fatigue, and frustration... mainly because they are invisible symptoms. I am looking to connect with other women in a similar situation as I am who also try to keep a positive outlook on life. Have a great day!View Thread
