Staying on Track Video Transcript
My HUMIRA day is Sunday at 8:00 p.m. I just figured Sunday was a good day.
Usually, I do one of my thighs. That's my preferred spot.
I did the injections myself. They do offer help, but I was able to go ahead and do them on my own.
My husband supports me. He’s like, “Oh, did you get your shot?” He reminds me.
Luckily, I haven’t faced many roadblocks, but if I did I know that I can call my dermatologist’s office.
Nothing gets in the way of me taking my injection.
I have been very, very fortunate to have a great support system, starting off with my parents.
My wife’s been a big support just being there, helping me get to appointments.
Talking with my other HS friends now, I have many.
What I would hope that others with moderate to severe HS take from my experience is that you’re not alone.
And when people ask, I tell them about it. I'm no longer embarrassed. I'm no longer afraid to tell my story.

HUMIRA can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. Serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. Before treatment, get tested for TB. Tell your doctor if you’ve been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you’ve had TB, hepatitis B, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. Don’t start HUMIRA if you have an infection.
