What comes to mind when someone mentions "the juice"? OJ? Apple juice? Jo & Scout's favorite. Florida orange juice? For anyone who knows me "the juice" means my Remicade infusion. There are a lot a varieties of RA medicines. For me Remicade works very well. I get my infusion every two months. This last week I could tell it was very much time for the infusion. Sometimes I glide through those two months and other months I am dragging along and starting to ache and become creaky and stiff. This last week fell into the last category. My back, which always has issues, was worse. Even my knee and neck had gotten into the act. We have had a lot of rain lately and that seems to affect me too. Thankfully today was infusion day. Now I am set to go another two months. I am extremely grateful for "the juice."
