I am in remission! This is a happy, happy day for me, as you can tell from the above reenactment picture.
I knew I was in remission: I hadn’t had a flare in years, I am not moving through the world as if I’m underwater, I don’t spend my weekends sleeping, and I’ve not dealt with crippling depression brought on my feeling that my body was breaking down. But now — now I have the proof. My ANA, the antinuclear antibody test that allows doctors to see the body’s autoimmune response, showed no indication of my body attacking itself.
This isn’t the first time my ANA came out clean, but at that time my doctor (who thought my diet and lifestyle changes were silly) basically said it was a fluke. But it’s not a fluke. It is the results of changing the way I eat, the way I move, and the way I process the world. It is the result of loving myself enough to do the work. Also, I triple checked with my new, wonderful doctor and she told me it wasn’t a fluke. So there you go!
When I compare my health now to my health a few years ago, I am amazed at how far I have come. I’m grateful that I didn’t listen to my doctor when he said it was a fluke, that I worked with an amazing health coach that set me on my path, and that I did the work I had to do to heal my body.
