Cimzia is so scary to me! I finished my starter doses last week and I was too afraid to do the injections myself. My goal is to do my next dose myself. The single injection as opposed to the double starters seems so much easier! Does it get better? Has Cimzia made a difference in your RA symptoms?

      I haven't seen much difference yet but Cimzia is great because the possible side effects are much less scary than other biologics! Giving yourself shots can be very hard mentally but don't be afraid to do it. As long as you are injecting it into fat and tissue, there isn't much you can do wrong that will have any sort of lasting impact. My biggest struggle with giving myself shots is getting out of my head. If I just do it, I'm fine. It's when I think about it too much that I struggle.
