Just wanted to say a quick hello and offer hope to those who are flaring.
I've been in Remission for 16 months now on Remicade. Life does get back to normal. I was able to do several hiking/camping/canoe trips this summer that would never have been possible when flaring.
Keep positive and keep pushing to try new treatments if yours are not working for you!
I know a flare could pop up at any time (no rhyme or reason to this condition) but in the mean time... I'm enjoying life!
Hiking/camping/canoe trips...Where about
s did you go?? West coast? Oh congrats on the remission, it's a great thing!
