Hi All,
Well I am starting remicade this Thursday. All I am able to do is work and sleep. It's hard going to bed by 5:00 pm, but I am hoping I will get better with remi. I am still on 40mg pred and I am hoping to taper soon. I pray remi is the answer for me. It is hard watching life go by and I am in bed or sitting. I have a GREAT husband, but I know it is wearing on him to go to school, work, and take care of our two kids. I have great kids and that helps. I also only have seven weeks of work left and then I get summer break, yeah for being a teacher. I am praying I can make it. I love reading everyone's posts and I am learning a lot about remicade that way. I took the day off work for my first infusion. I am a little nervous about paying for it, but I will add it to the pile of bills. Thanks for all your support and I will let you know how my first infusion goes.
