That's great to hear. I am sure now that you see that you over worried for not. I am glad you took the advice, it really was the best advice anyone could give in that situation. You were able to get back to feeling normal just by being well normal.

I am happy for you and think you will do well now that you are over the initial surprise. Keep it up. There will be times you may want to go back to that, but don't. You will have a much better outcome if you don't in the long run. I have met many positive folks that have become bitter and just down right nasty when the subject of their status comes up. They regret way to much and are still stuck in the mindset that it changes everything, because they have allowed it. There's no reason for it. They do it to themselves and heaven forbid you tell them that. Let's just say it's like walking into a room full of hungry, cranky, toddlers with no food. Crying, yelling, kicking, screaming, tantrums, etc.

Hopefully you will stay at the levels you are, that is extremely encouraging. Keep up with the doctor even though they are good, they can always go the other way and there is no way to tell until it's really bad.

Just remember it isn't something to be afraid of or for that matter make part of your identity, it's something you have, not who you are.
