Response to New Here and so glad to find this

 

Hi Gina.
I understand completely how you are feeling but let me tell you from first hand experience your doctor is right. My daughter Madison is now 8 (was diagnosed at 18 months) and could barely function until Methotrexate and Enbrel were introduced to our lives. Madison has been on Enbrel shots twice weekly and Methotrexate once weekly for the last 2 years and she is playing floor hockey in school this year!! Speak to your doctor about the new Enbrel research stating the shots can be combined into one weekly as our doctor has changed Madison over recently from the 2 to the 1. We are also in the process of weaning the Methotrexate as the Enbrel has taken over and is helping that much. It is a miracle drug in our house. Also, to ease your mind we always did the shots while she was sleeping and in the morning she never remembered them.

I hope this helps. Take care.
