Good Immunology, OCD, and Blogging!

1) I have not posted in my blog for a long time due to my OCD. I’ve still been writing a lot about my life, but I haven’t been sharing any of that writing it here. In an effort to push through the anxiety-inducing obstacle of my OCD, I’m going to try to post short blurbs here regularly (short for me, anyway).

2) I had a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad experience with a fake immunologist at the end of June. He crushed my spirits and I think he felt really good about it.

3) Overall, I’ve been feeling pretty good for the past week-and-a-half, which might be some kind of new record. I saw a new immunologist last week, who was great. He’s definitely the right person for me to see.

Tomorrow, I’m going in for a lot of really diverse tests so that he can get a fuller picture of what’s going on inside my body right now. I feel like I’m finally moving forward (coincidentally, my favorite direction to move) after well over a year-and-a-half of feeling like the recovery my health had plateaued. I’m extremely happy with this doctor and the entire situation, which is not a way I’ve felt in a really, really long time.

That’s all for now! I’m totally not having a panic attack about leaving this as is and not going back and adding things and over-editing it and rewriting the whole thing and AAAAAAaaaaokay…

Hooray for progress and real immunologists. It’s always great to see that you’ve posted a new, err, post! Even better that you’ve been feeling pretty good for a week and a half. I hope the tests they run will go well and help that “feeling destinctly not terrible” trend to continue! Woohoo!
