Well remicade finally started to work :)

I fell so much better, going to the toilet once maybe twice a day.

My last 3 weeks have been amazing I am now in Sweden picking my new puppy. And its all fun 17 puppies(from two litters) to play with life could not get any better.
I have been helping the breeder with the kennel and sometimes I am so tired of taking care of 27 dogs but nothing more than that no terrible joint pains no rush to go to the bathroom or anything.
I love dogs and having so much work around them is amazing I am getting stronger every day.. Not giving up.

This is a totally new life for me hope it lasts
Its been almost one year since I got really sick for the first time and I feel its time for me to get better.

Feel so good to be not in PAIN :)

Fall Colors: You are on 6MP? Is it working for you? Are the side effects horrible? Hair loss too?  Considering it for my daughter. Thanks.
