Sad as it might sound to a healthy person who has never known UC, I really do look forward to my monthly Abatacept infusion as well.
Not only does it mean that in a fortnight I will be feeling another step better, I also look forward to seeing my partner in crime from this study, our specialist, the trial co-ordinators and the nurses. They are all such a fun bunch.
Its also great hanging out with people who can understand the stresses, fears and pressure that UC causes in my life. There's no one else I know who I can laugh about
sloppy farts with, or understands the frustration of having to get up 3 times a night to rush to the toilet... Normal people just don't understand.
