Liz, congrats! Isn't it fabulous how you can feel almost normal again finally, after feeling so awful for a long time? I'm so thankful for biologics! They don't always work and some work better than others for individuals, but when they do work, it can give you your life back. I hope you have continued success. If not, try another one! My first one (Enbrel) only worked for a few months (which I'm still grateful for), but my second one, Simponi has given me 6 months of feeling pretty good, so far. If it falters, I'll be quick to try another. So glad you had quick results!
