Where acceptance is all there is
I'm still taking Humira on my journey toward getting Xeljanz. I was liking that the Humira was making my arthritis feel better, but I've noticed lately that I am having a worse reaction to it each new time I inject myself with it. There is redness and swelling that is extending 8 to 10 inches beyond the injection site and it is becoming quite swollen--worse every time. I don't know how much longer I can take it. But I did think it worth mentioning that there are pubic hairs growing, and I'm feeling some roughness in my arm pits. I'm sharing this to let others know this could work for some of you, although I am not a person that can continue taking Humira. I'll be seeing my rheumatologist in less than two weeks and I'm going to ask if he is ready to prescribe the Xeljanz for me yet. I'm crossing my fingers.
