Hi Patche and welcome. We do have good times and bad times. I have never been pain free since the first flare. I did have a good period Sept-Dec where I felt the best I have for a long time but wasn't pain free by no means, actually, had a lot of pain from doing so much but I had more energy and didn't feel sick all the time like you have the flu like I normally do. Sadly, in Jan I had a very close cousin that passed away and it all came back and hasn't left yet.
I lost a grandson, it will be 35 mos ago tomorrow, and that put me in a downward spiral that I have not recovered from and haven't felt like I did prior to his death since. There is some trauma in our lives we can recover from and some we will never recover fully from.
You had a very serious illness and it might take your body time to recover from it.
luv and hugs
