Shot in the arm.

OK, so if you ever need to get a shot from an injection pen. DO NOT....I repeat....DO NOT do it in the arm. I can't even begin to describe the pain that comes from this. Note to self. No more shotty in army. The end.

*Shot was Humira for AS. I have to get them done every other week. I make Tracy give them to me. I still can't do it on myself. I just can't make myself push the button.

Sorry to hear that you are in pain. I hope it helps in general though. I hope you feel better soon!

It sucks doesn't it! I am amazed Tracy will do it. Colby could never give me a shot. The first time I did it, it took me half an hour to get up the nerve. I've never done one in my arm though, good to know not too. I give mine in my stomach and it is not so bad. The new one they want to start me on is a thigh shot, I think. I don't know but I will find out soon. How has your health been lately Shanyn. I was talking to your mom and she said it has been pretty bad at times. I am so sorry, I definitely can relate. We should be pain buddies...or something like that, ha ha. Good luck with the shot thing. You'll eventually get up the nerve to do it yourself and before you know it you'll be a pro! Anything to not be in so much pain, right!

I don't know how you do it, Shanyn. I just wish you didn't have to go through this...the whole AS thing really stinks. : (

I didn't have the guts to put down your suggestion!

K- those work best in the buttocks! Just ask Big Brandon - he will tell you! Also, they work better in the buttocks when your injection pen isn't broken and you don't have a migraine from hello and your wife doesn't have to search around the house to find a device to make the injection pen inject into your buttocks - just ask Big Brandon! Oh, and they also work better when your wife doesn't have to drive for two hours in a severe, severe winter storm to get the injection pen from your sister-in-law - just ask Big Brandon.
