I've got a chronic autoimmune disease. Was on medication for four and a half years until May when Dr suggested I came off to see what happened. I have been feeling ok but had blood test result today that indicates that I'm not - the disease is still there. Not the end of the world - it can be controlled quite well with medication - and I know people have much, much worse things. I was just so happy that I was (or thought I was) in remission. Feeling a bit about it.
