About Me: Female, 59, Topeka, KS, member since Sep 2008
I don't know much about myself anymore! I used to be an energetic, involved, fun-loving, compassionate and loving person. Very family oriented and had a lot of friends. Not so much anymore. Not complaining, just stating a fact of life. Went thru Peg-Intron/Ribaviri
[More]n treatment from Sept 2006 to Sept 2007. I was an interior designer at the time my hep C went "active". I had it for many years in an "inactive" state which caused me mainly joint pain and fatigue, but none of it debilitating, just irritating. I was very isolated and alone during my tx because I just couldn't get up and go. I haven't been able to resume a "normal" lifestyle because I feel sooooooo bad all of the time. It never ends. I miss my old life. I am trying my best, with all my strength, (which is considerable, if I do say so myself) to eke out a little bit if that life, a little bit of the time, day by day, hoping to gradually restore some of the good things I used to have and do. Don't get me wrong, I am very blessed with the people in my life and they've all done so much for me, but I want to get back to the fun stuff I had the energy to do. That's what it is--no energy--and whatever energy I do have, whatever I do HURTS. ALL OVER. Sometimes I think it will never end, but I can't give up hope and can't give up trying. I just get really really frustrated sometimes. Some days I think I can't take one more minute, or even one more second of the pain and frustration, but my wonderful husband who is my greatest gift, and my soooo supportive parents, who are a blessing to me, and my brothers and their beautiful wives, my sons and my beautiful and precious daughters in law and grand daughters are a lot to be blessed with, so day by day, "I breath in, and I breath out" and keep putting one foot in front of another.

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
