Funny that a year ago when I was first diagnosed, I was yearning for meds to treat this, and nobody was willing. Now that I feel so fabulously healthy since this summer, and haven’t even had so much as a cold, they want to start me on the drugs. I feel like I will be taking poison and can say goodbye to good general health. Yes I know it probably is necessary, it’s just I was ‘up’ all these months on the NTM roller coaster, and I’m not in the mood to get down again, but it’s happening. I have kind of enjoyed the illusion that I could beat this or at least keep it at bay, by super nutrition and daily hard workouts. I guess if even Jon, who sounds to be in peak condition, has to submit himself to the meds, who am I to think I can get out of it. I just got a call from the Infectious Disease dr’s office yesterday and they said they got my micro back from NJM and now they want me to start treatment.
