I just faced reality today...2 years or less to live and it bites...I guess I have been living in a dream world, where it would all go away...****.

I don't even know you and this is effecting me.  I am a strong believer in prayer and will add you to my daily prayer.
Be strong, some people don't get that much notice to clean their affairs up. Just remember do your best every day YOU have touched lives. God Bless you.

Thank you Pat...I wrote this when I first found out about my virus and the other stuff.  It hit me like a ton of bricks and I agree with you..prayer is how I have accepted and dealt with all that is happening to me.  Thank you for your note and for your support.  In return I will also remember you.  I do better when others are walking with me and I am walking with them.

God Bless you also
Kat

Yes  I just looked at the date and saw last year.. and I am amazed no one responded...
Thank you Kat, I am going for an interview in about 6 hr at Duke University, for a HCV study program to see if I will be accepted.  It's something new  instead of doing the weekly shot they implant an needle in you and you would wear a device that dispenses the medication constantly.But still on the Ribo pill ... I haven't been on any treatment yet so this is a new experience for me.  I am anxious and nervous about it but considering the other options .... well why not?  Thank you for you response also hun  best to you.

God bless you
Pat

Dear Kat,

Don't stop believing.....dear friend....and don't ever give up.  You and I have both have stage 4 so I am truly touched by your note...and I know the feelings you must have been going through at that moment. I too had the same types of feelings, leaving my specialist's office the day she told me the results of my biopsy.  She actually asked me, "Are you bleeding yet?"  I almost fell off the chair....thinking what is she talking about? And then she proceeded to describe some of the end stages of this horrid virus.  I then saw another specialist that lifted my spirit and gave me hope....thank GOD.  Right now I am at week 38, undetectable...though I was a slow responder...so that's NOT a good thing but I am trying to find some kind of help to continue on to 72 weeks as recommended by my specialist.  I cannot believe that money is the only thing keeping me from winning this battle! Very sad indeed.

Many blessings to you, Anita

Besides having hep c myself, I lost a husband a couple of years to Cirrhosis and liver cancer .best thing i can tell you is to try and keep negativity away from you, keep the most positive outlook you can, don't drink booze,keep your brain active and try to find something good in each day .i feel for you , and just reading your story somehow makes it easier for me to accept that its time i try tx .i wish all the best for you
