Denis, that's a great approach. My mantra became, "I'm ok until I'm not ok. Even then, it'll be ok.".
Same idea, what do I know? We have only the information in hand, and can use that to make some projections if so inclined (I do like math, graphs, and so on!).
tutor_paul, to save your mind and not waste your good days worrying about possible future bad days, simply recognize this disease is a long process; it's a marathon run at a snail's pace from (possible) diagnosis through (possible) treatment.
If the data in hand say you are ok, then rejoice. Some day new data may indicate you're not ok, so deal with that then, and only then.
