Day 38/90 – Happy Dance

Day 38 of the 90 Days of Awesome is in the bank! What made today awesome? I got awesome news from a friend in the Bay Area!

All Smiles for my Friend Today!

All Smiles for my Friend Today!

For as long as I’ve known one of my friends, he’s had Hepatitis C. (In my life before law school, I was a mental health therapist for people living with HIV and Hepatitis C. I’ve seen some of the medical issues that they have to deal with first-hand.) This friend has been dealing with a lot of medical issues this year. Although I don’t wish medical issues on anyone, it was nice to have someone to commiserate with when I was going through the medical mystery of my chest pains and heart problems this last winter.)

My friend tried a new Hepatitis C treatment this year that was brutal for him. He sounded so miserable, but it was discomfort he was willing to endure for the chance to clear the virus from his system. I got an email this morning from my friend – the treatment worked! He’s Hep-C-free!

Hearing that news was a great way to start my day.

In case you missed it: Day 37 of the 90 Days of Awesome was less than awesome, but I’m still trudging the road.
