What remicade did to me..and the result was TTP

Please watch the video of myself in the hospital and take it as a warning of not only what Remicade can do-but how different drugs can severely affect you. Β When you have a weakened immune system, the chances are significantly higher that some of these drugs can negatively affect a person. Β I read all the time that people are going to try this drug or that one-but seriously…do your research and know all your options. Β Doctors aren’t fortune tellers and they can’t predict how your body could react. Β They can give you the options at hand,but it’s up to you to decide if the benefit outweighs the risk.

This will be hard for some of you to watch-and I am forever grateful to my husband for taking these videos. Without them, I don’t think I would truly understand what happened to me. Β I am told stories but until I saw it with my own eyes-I don’t think I could have ever realized how bad things really were. Β When your sick, really really sick-you don’t remember the details. Β You remember the last memory and the first one if/when you’re lucky enough to return to a somewhat normal state of mind. Β When you watch this video I want you to notice the “moon face”…which was a result of being on the drug Prednisone for so long. Β A picture is with a thousand words-but a video speaks for itself.
