Stelara Self-Injections 3 – 10

I know, I know. The last time I wrote a specific blog focusing on my Stelara self-injections was with my blog Stelara Self-Injection #2, and that was over a year ago. In that case, I have a lot to discuss. From injections #3 up until #10, I have gone through a lot, so you can… Continue reading Stelara Self-Injections 3 – 10

Chest Pains & ER Visit #3

Ugh, what a week. A week of pain. A week of waiting. A week of drama. A week that's finally over. Hallelujah! After my last post on Friday, No More Humira for Mary, my weekend was spent celebrating part 3 of Halloween 2016.  To say this year was epic would be an understatement.  I believe… Continue reading Chest Pains & ER Visit #3

No More Humira for Mary

This week has been slightly busier than usual and nothing really went as planned. We had another epic Halloween this year, with 2 of 3 parties attended so far, (one more to go for this weekend, hopefully), and I felt well enough Friday that we didn't have to bail.  We had originally canceled our Halloween… Continue reading No More Humira for Mary

Emergency Room & Crohn’s Inflammation

After Friday's blog post, I got to visit the ER again, for the second time in the past 2 months. I continued to have chest tightness and pressure, and I didn't think anything of it. It wasn't until I mentioned my problems to a friend of mine, that she suggested I call my Humira representative… Continue reading Emergency Room & Crohn’s Inflammation

1 Month of Humira

Well, another week has come and gone, as they seem to always do, with appointments and medications galore. I have been on Humira for ONE WHOLE MONTH now, with no changes in my Crohn's issues, but more problems than I began with, except we will get to that. This has been the first week of using… Continue reading 1 Month of Humira

Carpal Tunnel Shots & IVF for Vets

Here we are, another week come and gone, and I'm still not feeling any better.  If anything, I'm feeling worse. Since I began Humira 3 weeks ago, I have still felt pretty bad. I can't believe I have to do my third injection this upcoming Wednesday.  Like, really? Already?  I have continued to have persistent… Continue reading Carpal Tunnel Shots & IVF for Vets
