I'm guilty as charged for coming here to vent and share when things haven't been going too well. So, I figured it was time to post up that I am doing well right now! yeah

I've gone for two Remicade infusions, and so far, so good. My joint pains have really subsided, I'm able to eat again (I have been like an eating machine- up 11 pounds in just over two weeks!) turn Stomach pains and cramps are gone, and even my bleeding has subsided a lot. Down to two stools a day. No more night sweats, and the abscesses and fistula have really calmed and are trying to heal up. I've had a lot more energy, and have even been able to exercise lightly.


Just thought I'd stop by in a "good" time and wish everyone well, and share my current good fortunes!

I agree, Blanco... sometimes we get carried away during the bad times and forget to check in during the good! I'm glad that the Remicade is working for you.... I know it was a god-send for me a few years back.

Now I'm just on LDN and probiotics, and (crossing her fingers and knocking on wood) so far so good! It's nice to have energy again. My dog LOVES that we go on LONG walks every single day now!
