You've got a really special set of circumstances. Is your treating Dr. a liver specialist? Let him know what you're going through. I have a friend w/ lupus and her depression is hard to deal with. The depression from the tx is temporary and will end when tx stops. I think that is easier to endure. That's kind of contradicting, but I've never personally experience depression like my friend w/ lupus.
I hope ur Dr. can give you some advice n you'll get relief. Karen :)
Call your doctor NOW and tell him/her how you're feeling. If you're not already on antidepressants you may need to take them. How I feel on treatment varies from day to day. Some days I'm a hair's breadth away from tears all day. Some days are OK. Some days I'm tired. Some days I'm jittery. But each and every day I'm doing everything I can to clear my HCV. Hang in there, talk to your doc and take care.
Just curious to know: are you on SOC or taking triple therapy? I started a clinical trial in Vancouver July 8 and found each progressive week was different. Now that I have started week 9 I look back and think week 1-4 wasn't so bad but if you had asked me during those first few weeks I'm sure I thought I was dying. We are doing battle with a highly evolved virus and our weapons are powerful drugs with collateral damage no matter what you do. The interferon was worst the 1st week but now I feel like a cancer patient doing chemo when I take the protease inhibitor. This week I was ready to quit but I want to beat this thing and this is the only option. You need to see your MD and tell him/her everything you are feeling so they can help you sort it all out. Your situation sounds really complicated but you can get through it. Hang in there girl!
