Maybe completely off topic, but biologics literally saved my life. I have been on Humira since October 2013- and thus far (hopefully I don't jinx myself) I have had really good luck. Zero side effects- not even a sniffle! I was terrified at first, then I was obsessive about cleanliness...I would try not to breathe when there were people hacking and coughing around me, I washed door knobs and every where with antibacterial wipes- once I realized I was a psycho, I calmed down and live pretty much a completely normal life.
I'm almost 30, I work a full time job, part find job, I'm working on my masters as a nurse practitioner, jet ski nearly every weekend in the ocean where there are no bathrooms, and while I choose to eat healthy, I can basically eat whatever I want right now with out issue- unless I do sugar in excess and if I eat salad more than 3-4 Times a week I get cramps.
I guess all I'm saying is don't completely rule them
Out- they aren't the end of the world, and may actually do a lot of good got you if these other attempts don't get things under control.
