    Lynn, You did really well you should be very proud of yourself.
    I still remember my first metho injection it is very different to the practice ones you do. It doesn't sound as if you are a wimpette at all.
    The sky's the limit for you now.
    from a very impressed Tracey

    I was going to pm you to see how you got on but took a look here first just incase. I see you posted at Two o clock in the morning!
    Well done for doing the injection yourself.You have to try these things before you can make a judgement.
    Now how are you feeling. Any better? I do hope so. So glad you are not having to bury the 'feeling' with loads of food. I haven't had to do that for a while with a combination of no meds at all or anti sickness pills for the few times I have been able to take MTX. I have had no sickness since September and what a difference that makes.

    So hoping it keeps helping you....and well done Lynn

    Congratulations Lynn!

    Sticking a needle into yourself IS a big deal and I never quite got used to doing my Humira injections, even though I had it for 3 years! And at least with Humira you don't actually have to SEE the needle! So really well done and I hope the mtx does good things for you.

    Love Tilly xxx

    Oh Lynn, well done you. I am sooooo impressed. Fingers crossed this is the beginning of a new improved phase for you.
    You deserve a big treat for that. Does this mean that you are going solo from next week?

    Thanks again for your support - some of you "old timers" might remember me having an attack of the vapours at the thought of the tablets - who'd have thought it??? :lol:

    Take care all of you,
    love from Lynn xxx


    Speaking as an old timer Lynn - that had crossed my mind too :wink::lol::lol:

    Hi collywobble
    I am a bit late in congratulating you.
    Well done you, I think it is a big thing to attack ones self with a needle, and it does take courage. (I am a mtx pill popper)
    Take care

    I never did inject myself. I switched off when the first injection didn't make a difference. I continued at hospital a few more times but I knew deep down I would be back on the tablets.

    I am so glad things are going well Lynn,

    Best wishes
