My non-medically researched answer solely based on my own Remi years...
I wouldn't necessarily view it as you being "really sick" to need that much remicade, but more about how the body tolerates the medicine itself. My body is absolutely crazy when it comes to flushing things out... and there were periods in my Remicade treatment where I needed the full dose every four weeks. Then later, my body seemed to forgive me and I could stretch them out to every 16...and there was no direct disease manifestation or correllation... it just took more to make me feel good. I dunno, but I would definitely be revelling in the fact that you're at 100%. No small feat around these parts. My congratulations to you!

Remicade '05 through '08, with no other maintenance meds (ah, those were the days, eh?)
Tried Humira. Failed. Tried Gluten Free. Leaning towards Failure there too.
Cimzia (started 2-12-09) Again, not helping much, if at all.
