    Now that summer is just about here, I’m all about getting outside and enjoying the warm weather. And, for me, this means one of two things: 1) listening to my favorite podcasts and books on my early-morning runs (before it gets too hot outside) and 2) relaxing on the beach with a good book.

    As the title explains: Remicade stopped working for me. Whomp whomp. Within days of giving you guys a happy UC update, things started to fall apart. (Gah, I totally jinxed myself.) I thought maybe I was having a bit too much fun around the holidays (i.e. treats, booze, staying up late), but after a few […]
