Kinda piggybacking on what MWM said, here's a long-winded story...
Last summer I had my first physical in a few years. The doc had bloodwork done and my cholesterol was alarmingly high. So he gave me three months of eating right and exercise to get it down on my own. I started eating better, sleeping better, even exercising! Went back 90 days later, down almost 40 lbs and my cholesterol was still unacceptable. So now I'm on medication likely, you guessed it, for "the rest of my life!" It sucks, sure. But if it keeps me from having a stroke or a heart attack, I'll be ok with it.
If your situation was high cholesterol or blood pressure or any other of a laundry list of physical maladies, you might get a
from some folks, but not much more than that. And that's the unfortunate thing about the issue you're dealing with. In the grand scheme of things, the treatment is pretty similar to high blood pressure. The way many people think about it, is not. It's a great thing that you've gotten the treatment and support you need. Don't let having to take a pill a day, even if it's for "the rest of your life" affect the way you feel about feeling better.
