Hope it works for you! Nothing to be scared of - it's like a little pinch is all. I don't have any side effects.

Expect the best!

The statistics I see so far for my situation seem pretty good. There ARE long term statistics for the Anti-TNF drug treatments now. I'm here to make them longER.

Thank you both so much for the encouragment! I was hoping I would get the pen where all I have to do is push the button, but when I opened up the package it came out a syringe, so I think I'm going to go to the Dr.'s office tomorrow to get one of the nurses to help... hopefully it wont be too bad!! Still a little nervous though. I think it's more my mind overthinking it than anything! I'm ready to get off of prednisone!! It's driving me CRAZY!!!
