I’ve had the flu twice in the past two weeks, so today was a catch-up day at work spent responding to a mountain of emails and doing a ton of house-keeping duties, in addition to my daily tasks. 

I’m going to be starting a new immunosuppressant soon, and my doctor actually emailed me about it yesterday. Today, I forgot to email her back. Not because it’s not a priority, but because I was busy and didn’t think about Behcet’s.

What a huge accomplishment! If someone had told me three years ago that I would be able to go through a 10 hour workday and not think about my leg, my body, or Behcet’s, I would have told them they were crazy. It’s amazing what a few years of perspective can do!

While I was laying in a hospital bed on bedrest in 2010, I dreamed of being able to go about my daily life and not think about my health. Today, that was a reality. It’s something to celebrate!
