Yes, I got the phone call today, well yesterday rather.  The company is MBS/Vox. It seems legit. I am really excited and suprised that I was accepted. On September 24th, a researcher will be coming out to my house.  She will spend about five to six hours, 'observing' me in my daily routine.  After that, we will have an in depth interview that will last about an hour. I hope that some type of good will come of this.  I have an open mind. Wish me luck, you guys.
Oh, I also go for my Remicade on Thursday at 11am. Hopefully, I will begin feeling better.

So is this for a new medication? What is the research for?

Is this your first Remicade infusion? If so, good luck! :)

I wish you the best and do pray that you get some relief! Also, I look forward to hearing what they do to you i.e. meds, diet, etc. Hopefully, we will learn alot. Also, thank you for allowing them to learn from you and perhaps discover something new that will give others a more pain free life!
