I always used to tell myself: this year is going to be ED-free. I'm not going to do any of the following: restrict/starve/purge/take pills/overexercise/count calories/lie to my team/etc. Then I would inevitably fail at one of them, say screw this, and go right back to doing what I was doing before. I've gotten a lot less naive and a lot more realistic about it all. Is there a chance that one of the above could happen? Well, yeah. I've seen stranger things. But I need to get a handle on it before it becomes a problem. My illness is always progressing, and I fall harder and faster with each relapse. And my entire team agrees that I might have another relapse in me, but I might not have another recovery.
So that shall be my 27th year. Here's to life!
