Interesting to read the above posts. I'm also on the twice a year program now and can relate to the above post about feeling a little uneasy at first with only twice a year but now after being on this program for a year now I see it differently. As one poster mentioned, I feel I have conquered the beast and now go in for "maintenance" check. My anxiety level has gone way down since only twice a year. Honestly I do get a tiny bit stressed when I see my doc, but I call prior to every appointment to get the results of my labs just so there are no surprises. I truly believe this such a manageable disease that there should be no fear. Ofcourse i hope there is cure someday, but I hope the next big breakthrough is one pill a day, with NO side affects, then maybe onto no more pills and just a shot in the arm once a week, then maybe once a month. I've asked my doc about this and he believes this would be the progression of breakthroughs but would take some time. I believe it too. If you look at where we were 29 years ago and where we are today, I just have such an optimistic view of things getting much easier as far as medication goes, less frequency, easier on our bodies, and less expensive with possibly generic options available.Thank god for insurance and programs like Ryan White out there. I have to say I feel lucky and blessed. Peace and Love to everyone.
