Hello all my name is Rob and I'm actually introducing myself for a second time as I decided for personal reasons to change my screen name from luvbcord to Grandpa to 2.When I last recieved Remicade, one of your members was getting her IV at the same time and told me of your site.I'm glad she did. I've really enjoyed reading the posts and am learning alot. I can see already there is a lot of compasion for each other as well as laughter, where sniper comes to mind, lol. So I look forward to getting to know you and becoming a helpful member. Ty  Robscool

Welcome again. Your right about the people here, they are great. Hope I can bring a smile to you from time to time, its how I deal with this. You may have seen that the site moves pretty fast so if your post slips off the top page feel free to bump it back up . Odds are that someone with the right info will see it and post to it. Again, welcome...
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.
