Just count your blessings... instead of sheep.
I'm in the same remission boat to the unknown. The big difference this time is that I'm continuing to read this board and arming myself with new things to try when day turns to night.
BTB (before the board) I used to forget about HA during remission, which was good. But when they returned I would get super bummed out for a long time, which was bad. This time I feel like I'll be going in with a lot more ammunition, the knowledge I'm not alone, and a firm realization that they could be one hellova lot worse than they are. In the meantime reading the board sure makes me thankful and appreciate the delight of a pain-free life. Long naps with no startled awakening. Money for Happy Meals instead of meds. A clear mind.
Judging from the length of past remissions, I may have something real nasty in my head to dress up real nice and bring to the convention if I make it. It wouldn't seam right going without the beast....Maybe I could try samples of everybodies abortives to find a better one. Maybe take him to the beast-bashing booth.
.....anyway...I know it's easier said than done..but try keeping your eye on the donut,not the hole.
...you could be living in a van..down by the river.
