was just checking in to see how you are doing with Humira and stuff. I am on my 2nd week and had to take another two shots yesterday. I do't want to jinx anything, but I think something is working because I finally got below the 20mg threshold of prednisone w/o a catastrophic anal dump. crossing fingers, toes, and anything else I can find to cross. I am sick of this friggin disease. I was finally able to actually go out the other night. Again, hope all is well.

I was thinking of you Anthony, I do my two additonal shots today.  I'm glad you seem to feel a bit better and you can lessen your other medication. I"m not on any other medication soI haven't seen any results yet.  i know I need to be patient because most posts I've read said that there is no significant results until the three month mark.  I"m with you with keeping things crossed that these shots will be the answer we are waiting for.  Good Luck, keep me posted how it continues for you. :)

I've been on Humira for over 18 months. It took quite a while for the Humira to take effect for me.
