Hi. How are you doing now? I heard the new treatment will be 12 weeks, NOT 24 weeks. I saw doc and PCP & am in coast mode til my 3 mos test to see if S&O worked. I guess I've been in a weird funk? I do not know what's potential "not good" side effects, post med side effects, & cirrhosis side effects? That makes things a bit scary. Regardless, the week I get my results back is the week before the new meds. I'm going to teach 3 classes and just try to take care. I was wondering how you are? I really hope you get to do the new meds slated for Oct 12th. Best, dbz.
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.
