I didn't think you were gloating or ungrateful. I can see where it would be a little scary with all that gets beaten into us about keeping up with appointments and medications and the such. We are trained to think we need to be in constant contact with the doctors who treat us or risk getting really sick. Actually hearing that they are recommending it for some patients is great news! It means we have gotten to a point where we are moving away from a critical illness to a more manageable one.

Also hearing that your doc has decided to allow you to only see him twice a year means you have conquered the beast. You are doing excellent and have whipped it into shape. So bravo to you. I am sure I will get to that point as well, my complaint is more that I feel like I live at the doctor's office. I never was one for doctors to begin with. Not some macho thing, just I find most of them really stupid. (Most refuse to say, "I don't know" which to me is a sign of stupidity). I am however really happy for you and think it is great news.

I wouldn't worry about any nay sayers, if you get any, it will probably be from someone who isn't at the right place to see how great that is.
