I am also on Humira I give my self a shot everyother week but I also am a diabetic type 2 and I give my self a shot every week I am so depressed. I am 67 but before I was put on Humira I had a heart attack I was on methotrexate then I can’t spell it right. I just feel like my life is over. I no longer take methotrexate, not because of my heart it did not cause my heart attack, I think my shingles did. Plus all that morophine I took wile I was at hospital I really don’t know but they put one stint in me for my heart.

    Hi 112dfiglinda,

    I am so sorry to hear that you’re having a difficult time and I am glad you reached out and shared your story. I want you to know that you are not alone and our community is always here to support and to listen. I know how frustrating and disheartening it can be being on different treatment plans and not knowing what the cause or side effects of each medication can do. Knowing if you should make the change to another treatment plan can be a difficult decision. Here is an article that may be helpful: https://rheumatoidarthritis.net/living/time-to-change-your-treatment/

    We also want to encourage you to reach out to any local support group or support person to get some additional support. Here is a link to the arthritis foundation which may give you some more information. http://www.arthritis.org/
