[More]oice I have 12 yr old daughter to take care of.The good news is that after 24weeks it has been undetectable! I had some skin irritation in winter months, I did get irritable @ times but I turned to my faith in God to keep me calm. My joints hurt and do get flue like symptoms, head aches and feel dis orientated @ times. But I pushed my self to work ,exercise and eat well and for the most part I am doing well. My concerns are after this weeks treatments end and I am getting mixed feelings on what to expect. I understand like any other meds I should expect some type of withdrawal, I am going to keep the faith up and hope to god this stays out of my system for 6 more months and enjoy what ever time I can with my daughter when I do get to see her. I am glad after 72 weeks I decided to find this site! I feel that because of this diagnose illness it has made me go a little into a shell socially. I have only had a few drinks and do not like being in that seen because I know that would be detrimental to my health. Looking for answers for staying well for my daughter , Thanks all
