If it helps any, I was terrified the night before my first infusion and didn't sleep at all. I had no idea what to expect and had all the same kinda questions as you. Back then I had no idea about
this forum and didn't know anyone that had taken it. Then when I arrived there and watched everyone else
open their books they brought along and just sit down I calmed right down and realized it's nothing. Actually the guy next to me fell asleep in a matter of minutes. Was funny. The nurse had to wake him up just to start the darn infusion and then he was back asleep in no time. The girl on the other side had Rheumatoid Arthritis and told me how much it helped her and how she's been on it for seven years etc.
Over time, in a weird way I actually began to look forward to them as it was basically three hours to sit back and just relax and do whatever... de-stress from work/life.
Eventually I just read and feel asleep or watched a movie as they all had tv's and dvd players.
Anyway. Good luck - and I was able to drive home from them after signing out on the release form, but they do make you somewhat drowsy. I would grab a strong coffee on my way back from the infusion and work for the rest of the day.
Bring a decent magazine, book or maybe headphones for music... chances are you'll fall asleep! Electronics however tend to fall off your lap when you do.
