I Passed!

I don't share much personal information on here, I have other venues for that. However, I was so excited that I had to share. I already tweeted it.

So, what is the big deal, what did I pass? My three month check up with my main specialist. Now let me reassure those who don't know me, it's nothing terminal or fatal. I have various and assorted chronic health conditions, some minor, some moderate, and 2 major, related, ones that dominate and rule my life. I saw the doctor who handles those today and I am doing well. At my last check up, three and a half months ago, I was doing reasonably well so we decided to lower the dosage of one of my maintenance drugs. That went well, after the first week, and I am now on the lower dosage on a regular basis. I have been scarily healthy the past few months, a co-worker even commented on it. That made my day because my health issues have been a huge problem at work. My employer has been less than empathetic though they have made some accomodations.

Anyway, I've been doing well. No flares, some minor day to day to issues but nothing that caused me to miss work, call an ambulance, go to the ER, or get admitted. My 2 big goals this years are to avoid trips to the ER and being admitted, for any reason, to the hospital. The year's almost half over and so far, I've been successful. I'm absurdly happy and also scared. The pessimistic side of me keeps waiting for the other shoe to fall.

In the meantime, I am reasonably healthy and that makes me happy. :)


  1. Bea, that's amazing! I'm happy for you. Congrats!
    Here's a glass of virtual bubbly to celebrate and take your mind off the might-bes. They're not important right now. :-)

  2. That's amazing, I hope that your good health continues for the rest of the year :)

  3. Great to hear about anyone! Much continued success and good health, Rae
