good luck blueclass may it continue for a long long time
When I read the many posts from the seasoned veterans on here I hesitate to even think about
the total elimination of medications for my husband....he is no where near the point of even thinking along those lines as he is not in a remission. He certainly has more good days than bad days and is fairly functional but has a long way to go even though he has come a long way too.
Good luck in your pharmaceutical endeavors also.
