Juvenile Arthritis - giving my child injections

Gillian - posted on 05/07/2013 ( 1 mom has responded )




Hi, my daughter was diagnosed at 3 yrs old with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis, after years of pills and two injections, we started methotrexate in November with no success. Our doctor has suggested Biological’s for her which means I would give her an injection every week. Have any moms dealt with something similar, I am so nervous to give my daughter injections as she already has a very large fear of needles from all the blood work she has endured
Any tips, suggestions or ideas would be greatly appreciated

Poor baby. I am so sorry. I do not have any experience with this at all, but just wanted you to know I am thinking about you and your daughter. I really wish you the best of luck. Maybe to help her get over her fear of needles, have a prize box ready for her with random cheap little presents ranging from 1-5 dollars. After her weekly injection, she gets to choose a treasure for being so brave! Good luck!
