At long last, after years of waiting, I got the call from my doctor's office that I had been waiting for.
"The doctor says to stop the Diovan."
And with that statement, I am now officially prescription drug free. No refills to worry about, nothing to have filled. No followup appointments. It's over.
A month ago, I was going to the doctor every month, having blood drawn all the time, etc. No more. So why am I celebrating? Why am I so excited?
Because this is all I have. I have been working on my weight for over 2 years. It is so hard, takes so much work, takes so long to see the results sometimes...accomplishments like this are what get me through the tough times.
I am glad the doctors, the hospitals and the pharmacists are there. I am glad they were there for me. I am glad they will be there if I ever need them again.
But for now, it is not nice to need them. It's a beautiful day!
