glad that it worked out, definitely stay on your meds and try not to let anything (other than health issues that you cant control) get in your way of staying on it!
you can also do at home party type jobs to help supplement your income to pay for meds if needed, like Lia Sophia or others. I did Lia Sophia for a bit, and besides hosting my own party at first to get the free jewelry (I bought food for the party), I got a free kit and everything.........then I got dx'd w/Kidney Disease and went into the flare from hell........but if you are not flaring might be a good to look into. I am thinking of starting up again, you only need 1 party a year to stay active.
