Remission

In October of last year, I developed strange symptoms that resulted in me receiving a very rare diagnosis.  I won’t lie and say everyday I was some chipper person because of it. But I definitely chose to look at my life and make the most of what I still could do.  So I threw myself into work and for the past nine months, it’s been work, work, work.  And it was just what I needed to do because it truly reinvigorated my passion for design.  And nothing beats seeing your vision come to fruition.  Plus, who wants to sit around all day thinking they are sick.  I know I didn’t…

And then a strange thing happened about 5-6 weeks ago.  My incredibly rare symptom? Well, it suddenly stopped.  I didn’t notice at first, because I’ve been so focused on work.  But around 2 weeks into the change, it dawned on me that I felt normal.  Completely.  And that the incredibly rare symptom was no longer there.

I happened to run into one of my doctors around this time and he asked if I wanted repeat blood work pulled.  So I said yes.  He knows I monitor my numbers more than my doctors do.  He’s cool like that and we have an understanding that I am not your average patient.  He knows I am doing everything holistically to better my health.

Two weeks later, I got the results. And every single antigen has dropped to the lowest levels ever.  According to that blood work,  I’m 100% healthy.  I can’t believe I am actually going to type out these words but…

REMISSION friends!!!!

…it’s a beautiful thing.

      1. Couldn’t be happier for you. This sorta thing is so rare, to have symptoms vanish and systems reset to normal. I’d say that whatever holistic measures you were taking should continue to be utilized. So glad you’re feeling like you again. 😊😊

  1. This is such fantastic news! I agree with sonofabeach … keep up what you have been doing. The body is an amazing “machine” … so glad you have been able to help it heal itself

  2. After you liked one of my posts, I checked out your blog and found myself reading for two hours on. You’re truly a captivating writer. I had confessed cheating on my partner recently, and reading your story, i can’t but be absolutely terrified that she will in turn do the same years down the road. It’s hard to know if there is anything that I can do to change that possibilty. My wife is very loyal, but I’ve seen her looking at people differently, and longing maybe for something different. It hurts my heart that I brought that onto a beautiful, balanced relationship… nothing can undo the past. I don’t know if you’re still married but I hope you’re happy.

    1. I have no doubt that you are married to a wonderful woman. It’s going to take time to relieve her pain and suffering. It doesn’t happen overnight. But your step towards honesty and full transparency is the beginning of creating a new foundation for a new marriage. I would encourage you to look deep as to why you strayed. And why you went against your vows to her. Do you want to stay married to her? Did you get married too young? To the right person? Was this a long term affair or a one night stand? There’s too many variables at play here and you really can’t go down that rabbit hole comparing my marriage to yours. Or what I was feeling back then vs what you think your wife may feel down the road. We had a unique set of circumstances…

      Just focus on today. Don’t stress about tomorrow. Work on being authentic, present, and a communicative, loving partner in all that you do. I have faith you can do it- but it takes work. Rome wasn’t built in a day…

      1. Thank you for your reply. I try to focus on today. Unfortunately most of the times it’s still pretty painful. The walls my partner have put up as a result of being hurt are high. I do sure hope we get through this to building a new relationship. I’ve spent a lot of time examining why I strayed and I have a very good idea of my reasons. I do take it pretty seriously and know that I hadn’t ever examined myself that deeply before.
