Hi Sabre cat
When you get the news it is the most incredible feeling, I was laughing and crying at the same time.. My hands to shaky for the email to type and let people know! It was amazing happiness!
I was like it for a few weeks. Then I did go into a depression over it, but it didn't last.. with the deeper comprehension I was finally free
it couldn't beat me this time. I am 49 and had woken up with a ticket back into life but with nothing and not knowing where to turn, how to restart , but yeh it just didn't win, the freedom won. So don't worry if you do dive a bit, it's natural.
I didn't ever feel as if I was waiting, failing interferon was like "ok, I am incurable, that's my chance used up, it will kill me in time, how do I deal with it" and i couldn't really. I had trained myself into not starting or investing in anything or anyone as I wouldn't be here to enjoy it or see it through it became a habit in my approach to life & thinking.. I also became very fat, withdrawn and misanthropic, It was my way for a decade, (since interferon fail) and it's fairly big thing to change now
But everyone has a few big things in their life, this is one of ours and it's a very nice one. Like most other people-- we too will be ok
I really wish you all the best !!
