Yay!  Congratulations to you.

Thanks for sharing.  It's always good for those of us still in the trenches to be reminded of that prize at the end :-)

It was a hard row to hoe ,right from the start I hate to say but I am 1 of the lucky 1,s that got rid of the bug. I went thru the rescue drugs, anti depressants ,all of it but when clear at 12 weeks I sum how mustered up the will to continue the tx and finish .  What I really hated was the insomnia. Being that ill from the tx and couldn,t sleep. I'd watch my family go to bed , get up, that really was a downer.  Keep fighting , it's worth it ! Now I'm back at full swing working , doin sx jobs, not not that life is a bed of roses for the dyce but I'm so happy to be rid of hcv. Many of my ole frinds here didn't clear and I feel for em. I don't get to come here cause I'm so busy but I wanted to share this to encourage you all not to give in from the fight and there is a good chance of victory here.

good luck all of you new and old friends alike.

Insomnia on this tx is the worst -- at least if you can sleep you're not conscious of your aches and pains.  I remember somebody wrote here "just put me out 'til it's all over."  I can totally relate to that.  Maybe we can be frozen for 48 weeks  :)

Did you take any sleeping aids?  I would have loaded up.

So glad you made it!

Actually , I don,t sleep the same since txing. I did ambiem while on tx but it would usually only knock me out a couple hours. It would make me stringy feelin'.I actually take 1 to 2 mg xanax a nite now to sleep, but I've over loaded my self here with sx work but with this economy , you know the anxiety is on me But I'm hcv free and maybe when I can slow down the sleep will come easier.
