So, February 28th is my start date for Remicade® (Infliximab). I’m pretty excited! But probably not for the obvious reason (that being it hopefully will stop the inflammation and quiet my Crohn’s a bit). No, I’m excited because I have another chance to develop super powers. I was pretty bummed it didn’t happen with Humira®. Cimzia was a bust as well. But Remicade. That’s the ticket. I mean this stuff so mirrors the super-serums from my beloved comic books I can’t help but think it will happen. Steve Rogers (aka Captain America) got his powers from a super-serum. Green Goblin = super-serum. And many others. Of course, there is that nagging voice in the back of my mind. I wish it would shut up. It keeps telling me I will probably end up as Laundry Man. With the ability to fold super large piles of laundry in seconds. Even so, this would no doubt still make me incredibly hot and desirable in the eyes of my wife, right? Thanks Frank Garufi Jr. for guidance with costume design. Yes, that is a hand-towel for my cape. Practical don’t you think?

    Ryan, I’ve done that whole route also! But Remicade has been the ticket for me! See if you can get your infusions at home, I do. Also get a Remistart card to help with some of the expenses through the doctors office. Good Luck Remiman!!!
