First infusion done!

I've had my first round of infliximab today and everything seems to have gone well.

I must admit I wasnt looking forward to the long day but it went OK. The other people were nice and it was so nice to speak to real people who were going through the exact same thing as me.

Everyone said it was working really well for them so I'm feeling fairly positive about it. We'll just have to see I suppose but I'm keeping my fingers crossed!
