Happy Update

Insurance finally figured out their stupidness and my doctor convinced them that yes she does indeed know what shes doing and yes indeed i did need humira

So my supplies will arrive just in time for me to stay on schedule for my shots Yay!

Never in my life did I anticipate being *happy* that i will be allowed to give myself a shot lol

I am so hopeful. Doc has been of the opinion from the getgo that it was where we were headed with me, but we couldnt get insurance to cover at all until i had tried Imuran without effect. she thinks this might actually be the thing that gets me to some kind of remission so im keeping my fingers crossed
