Yes, you're lucky, and hopefully you'll continue. A small percentage of people never have another flare after their diagnosis. Keep taking your meds to help increase the chance of this. Even if you do have a flare, for most people they're not too long and easily managed with drugs. Naturally, people who hang out on the message board tend to be those who either have or have had really bad flares. Most people don't come around as often when they're feeling well.
So at this point, you have every reason to be optmistic. Don't let our war stories make you too anxious.
