Hey there Puppy!
Wow completely blind???? Out of curiousity, do you do the voice-activted computer devices to be able to type? Does it read it back to you? Amazing!
How long have you had RA?
Mmmm...yeah, I get sad to many times because I cannot walk where I want to, go out, work, and earn a living. It is very difficult.
I take Remicade as well. I love my nurses at the chemo lab. I go every 3 weeks on a Monday. Takes 6 hours for my infusion. Been on it since October 9th 2006.
I'm still very hopeful that it will help with the RA disability.
Glad to have you here at HealingWell! You take care AkiPuppy.
