Hi just saw the note. I am fine, I am not hiding anything, I just remember the monitors on this site do not like anyone talking about supplements or mentioning brands, so I just talk about the science of HCV and the science of nutrition. Nice to meet you!
I know. I was afraid of being stigmatized. First I was working in the "field," then when I got into teaching, it was my plan to have a job that would allow me space to be sick when and if I eventually got sick. I work at a university. So, I was afraid to say anything b/c of dumb tenure process. I thought because it was "a job for life," I might be passed by? I had been teaching since 2001. New career. So I decided to keep quiet so I wouldn't be passed by because I had a potential health time-bomb. In 2008 I got tenure, but also found out I was working for the lowest paying uni in Texas w/ rampant bullying. My big plan to protect my future as a single mum with two kids literally back-fired. I was scared b/c of what happened to HIV patients. I'm glad I finally came out. My job is not.
Just a quick note to say hi!
You were the first person on this forum to reach out and make friends. I just got back my first post-treatment test and I am still Non-Detected! I know this is a first baby step. However, after all the other tries, this is the first ever sustained response post-treatment ever for me. Typically when I stop the meds the virus comes back. Thank you for friending me. I can't believe I've had hep c for 30+ years, and I am just now learning personally what it all means. I kept it clinical to protect myself--not anymore!
How are you doing now? Best, dbz
