a love/hate relationship

Enbrel and I have a complicated relationship.

Without he extraordinarily expensive biologic, I barely function. Its beneficial effects are somewhat diminished due to the ongoing methotrexate shortage, but even so I’m doing better on it than I would off it.

Still, I really hate taking the shots. I mean really hate it. I put it off on Sundays as long as I possibly can because, well, it hurts. And I don’t like hurting myself on purpose.

But I have a system.


And that system includes spades on my iPhone and, at least for now, Disney princesses. Belle is my favourite, of course.

Anyone else have any tips for making the medicine go down more smoothly?
