I do think that, to borrow a term from the 12 steppers, i can be 'in recovery' i feel that i am currently in a recovering mode - hopefully back to a long partial remission, like the one i had before. I see recovery as a process, with varyinng degrees of recovery along the way.Two years ago i was severely affected, at about 25%. Since then i have been moderate/severe, then moderate, and now experiencing some 'mild' days, mixed in with moderate and the odd severe day or days. To me recovery doesnt necessarily equal cured. All the best Justy.
