I haven't seen Coug posting at Hep Neighborhood either, so I'm thinking maybe he's having a rough time with side effects. Hoping I'm wrong and he's just taking a little vacation with his girlfriend.

Bill1954 was a little before your time but barely. Very nice man who if I remember correctly was treating agressively with a high dose of ribavirin to combat an initial slow viral response. In one of his later posts he did mention some cognitive problems from tx regarding writing.

Your second shot goes as good as your first?

didn't bill also post that his change of dosage finally brought him to the negative side? I wonder how he is doing now. cougar tried to keep things leveled in the forum, hopefully, he will post again.

Hey all, I'm glad I'm being missed. I am completely wiped out, it's even making it hard for me to effectively communicate. The drama did turn me off, I certainly don't have the energy or desire to get involved with that; I'm now a tv junkie so I'll get my drama from the tube.
Even though because of the way I feel and function I can't get tx out of my mind, I have been trying to stop allowing it to control my life, so I needed a break. My concentration and patience are zip so I have been hiding out quite a bit.
My hgb has been holding in the high 11's(pre-tx 15.6), I'm going to have my thyroid checked next labs; next docs visit more than a week away. I still check in and will post again, right now I just don't have the energy. The grind is just starting to take it's toll. I hope everyone out there is doing fine.    Thanks for listening.

By the way did I hear the dip changed her name to vegas, I live in Las Vegas.   Peace

Great to hear from you! Everything you said makes complete sense and I'm not communicating too great myself anymore :) Hgb holding is good news. Save the energy to deal with tx. We'll see you when we see you, meanwhile I'm sure a lot of prayers will go out tonight.
