Just a quick note to say hi! How have you been? Did you get thru the therapy? I have been preoccupied but i haven't forgotten my friends on this site. It's been a wild ride for the last year. Dealing with Caden's parents and dss have been front and center. My stress levels are super high. Good news tho, my tests in August were still good, don't need therapy yet. Maybe some psychology therapy. How are your parents, did your dad get better? Send me a note when you can, we movd from the beach back to where our kids are, still don't know if it was a good move, sitting on the fence with that for now. skb28642.....sherri

Just a quick note to say hi! How are things going for you? I haven't been here in a while. Been wrapped up in other life stuff, some good, some not so good and some just plain bad. I don't know how any of the friends i made on this forum are doing. I haven't had time to worry with my hep c. I hope you are doing well. Please forgive me for my absence. When you are able to drop me a line i would like to hear from you. sherri

Just wanted to let you know I can relate. If you ever want to talk, you know where to find me. Being unable to deal with stress and the desire not to be involved in unpleasantness must be a side effect of the tx. I cant deal with it either, at least i dont want to. I cant afford to let things get me down, i battled depression for years and i have no intentions of going back there. I have found prayer helps with that, but still there are some people who cant stand the thought of me being happy. It amazes me anyone can be like that but it does happen. I stay away from them people. Havent read the book but i will look for it at the library tomorrow. Thanks, sherri

Just a quick note to say hi! I have been blessed! I am sorry about the state of your life right now. My friend Cottoncandy is having a really rough time too. You'all just amaze me the way you can do things and keep your sanity. im usually pretty laid back but on tx i couldnt bear anything that wasnt good. I wish i could come where both of you are and help in some way, i guess prayer is the only way i can help, so prayers for my friends it will be! Keep in touch when you can.

Just a quick note to say hi! Im doing good, the blood tests came back and the last ones were right! Enzymes are barely elevated and viral load is only 120,000. they were 56,000 3months after tx, so i am very happy. I dont scare easily unless i see a spider, i love to talk and listen or read what others have to say. We have been really busy so i havent had much time to do e-mails, but things are setteling down now. Hope all is well with you! send news soon. sherri

Oh my gosh -- they put out info then deny it's credibility-- that's like a Saturday Night Live skit.  I wish you strength with your fight.  They're so stupid it might be to your advantage.

Let us know how it goes.

Just wanted to let you know I can relate. I have all the same symtoms as you. Never had any before treatment. I am always doing research to find out why I feel like I do. I did find an article stating you can get fibro if you've had hepititis. I am relieved someone else is experiencing what I am and I'm also very sorry. I am 16 mths post and haven't posted on the board but read it often. Thanks for letting me share. Rose

Very well actually! He is actually coming to the gym with me and working up a sweat. He hasnt set foot inside a gym since May. It is doing wonders for his energy level and soon we will be lean and mean to start tx in 09. What about you? How are you doing?

Just a quick note to say hi! I would say you are lucky, i thought this tx made everybodys blood count messed up. I got the blood work done today and now i just have to wait for the results and an appt. to hear what my GI says. Yes i will do it all over again if i need to. The worse part of procrit was the drive to and from the dr. I actually did feel slightly better, but when you have no energy every little bit helps. I know i will almost definitely have to have it again as i have always had problems with anemia and i have sensitivity to alot of meds that others dont have. Im not worried my doctor is a good one and his r.n. is an absolute gem! Its just 52 weeks, right? Oh well thats the way it goes with hepc.Whats going on with you?

Just a quick note to say hi! There are two new ones Teleprvir and i cant think of the other one. Go to skb28642 and read my note from Bill. Depends on what the blood work comes back..if i need to go back on tx my dr. wil find a way to get me on it. I think it is taken with the peg and ribivarin, what a nitemare! I would do it if it works tho. if you cant get it let me know and i will write it down and tell you what it is. one of the new ones wont allow anything for low blood counts..they must be crazy..havent heaard of anyone on tx that didnt need procrit or the equivilent. Its all scary. nice picture, i had to order a disc for my printer so i can post a picture of something..maybe me, maybe not. we'll see. sherri

Just a quick note to say hi! Cool! I hope its inactive for the rest of my life. I did the therapy and was a non responder, actully it went down but it began to go up as soon as i finished the meds. I would love to throw a party for all of us on the island where i clean, sure would cause a commotion for all the old upity farts in this town. I guess im the only one in this county that has hepc, there is no where to go talk to anyone and no support groups, we all know how much a support system helps. Thanks for getting back to me. Hope life is being good to you! sherri

Just a quick note to say hi! What do you know about hepc being inactive? Have you ever heard of it? I feel like im starting all over because i had my hopes up that i got a miracle, maybe i did maybe not. Who knows? Guess i will get the tests done again and get it over with. Any insight will be appreciated, from you or anybody else that may know of it happening. Thanks. Hope things are good for you. Havent been able to read your profile, do you have one? there is some crazy ad about detoxing from drugs where your profile should be. Does someone think we are all addicted to drugs  or just some insensitive marketer buy some space. My mood is foul, think i will get off here. sherri (if we were all doing drugs would it be okay for an outsider to imply it)

I hope you're feeling better!  Hang in there, hopefully someone will give us post tx'ers the time of day so we can get some insight on what's causing these post problems. I don't think the doc's have a clue. I'm seeing an orthopedic surgeon...maybe I can get some answers from him.

Wow! It sounds like your symptoms were really debilitating when the hcv kicked in. How did you cope? What was tx like?

Ahhhhhh so finally someone like me who got told to wait! Yes, I am dying to know if this tx works or not and my bf literally. They have rave reviews and astonishing "cure" rates. Our doc was already to conventions and told us to hold out on standard care bc the new drugs will be worth it. In the meantime willy must lose 20lbs and come back in jan with updated bloods. The wait is excuciating! Glad to meet someone that was told to wait! By the way, how is hcv inactive? I thought as long as it was there it should be treated, didnt know there was an active and inactive state. My bf is a grade 2 so the docs said his virus wasn't so aggressive, that he can wait.

Hi! No problem! I totally understand what you are saying and believe me I identify. "Outsiders" will not understand what this is and soon lose sympathy. This community is great and filled with the most knowledgable people with the best advice. Many times I've approached my doc with things before he even told me thanks to this site.  My bf was diagnosed with 1a in May and we still havent had treatment. We are waiting to begin a univ trial with the new drugs. His chance of clearing will be 60-70% unlike standard treatment. So here we are playing the waiting game and it isnt easy. Plus we won't know how he will react which is the worst thing. I'm glad you are here and believe me you are not alone. In May and I was guttedand didn't know where to begin. Hit me up! :0)
