« on: June 07, 2006, 03:18:30 AM »
All-
2day I went in for another round of my labs. I will not get my results til the 27th of this month. Overall, I am feeling fine. I go to the gym, function as normal as I can, and no other medical problems whatsoever. I also am excited cuz I am starting to get back into school in a few wks...on the 27th. I just want to graduate, get a Bachelor's degree and get on w/ my life. School is such a bore and it is taking forever!!

when I found out, I nearly dropped out of school.....but somehow I managed to get through it though my grades suffered tremendously.  I am applying for graduate school now, go figure.  ;D

Anyway, I hope to hear good news from your lab test.

All-
It usually takes a month, give or take, for me to get my results of any of my labs. I guess it is so spaced is cuz I no longer have to make as frequent as hospital visits as I have been when initially infected, which is a good thing. The best part is is that my doc has came to the conclusion, based upon my results that I am cut off of my PCP prevention medicine, Dapsone. I no longer have to get that refilled, yay!
Overall I feel better; I wake up early in the morning for work, schedule myself for OT, have punishing workouts at the gym, and feel relaxed at the end of the day. I have not eaten what I have been told to eat...but I am working on that. I still eat very meagerly. I just told my doc of how excited I am that I will finally get back to school.
