1 month post EOT

Jun 08, 2013 - 2 comments










Its really been one month and 6 days since I have been off the meds. At first it was really strange to be off the meds and not taking anything every single day. It has been interesting in a good way. I have regain most of my energy back which is a plus. There are days where I am a bit winded but I push threw it and cont. on. I still have some joint and back pain. I don't know if it is from work or the meds getting out of my system. Its really hard to tell....... I am enjoying my life back everyday. I am getting some of my sleep back to normal. I am not taking as much to go to sleep. Partly because I don't want to be on any meds anymore if I have a choice and I do.
I am grateful for this website and all the people on it and the people that helped me out. I am going to cont. trying to help people out. I joined the american liver foundation to help out people my age and many more. I want people to know that they need to get tested for hep b and c. Regaurdless of what you have done in your past. I think it should be something that they test when you go get a check up with all the blood work. If you don't know you never will. Anyways I am beat mowed the lawn today for the first time in awhile and I am pooped. Time for some well needed food in my belly.

First day off meds

May 04, 2013 - 7 comments

So today was kinda strange. It felt weird that I didn't have to take any pills today. So I had a cup of joe for the first time in awhile couldn't finish it. It felt strange and relieving at the same time. Tummy felt all weird now it's almost 4am and I'm still awake with meds to help me sleep. A lot good that's doing. I mean I was sleeping a bit better but now nope. I did get out and see a friend but I don't feel like myself. I know that may take sometime. My mind is racing and for once I wish I had a button to turn it off.  I'm jumping all over the place with my words. I feel like I've been in space for 6 months and now it's back to earth but bad thing is I have to get acclimated. Weird but feels that way.  

Our bodies... Feeling poetic

Think of these meds as a prison. We commited a crime and are paying a price but once we get out of this prison. We see our lives as a new one a rebirth. Yes some have gone back to prison and are trying to break free. Once you do the light feels different, the scent of flowers change. You are born into a new you.

This is how I know I am going to feel once I'm out of this prison.

Got to love Friday midnight shot

Yes, we all hate this day. I for one want to act like a child and say " no I don't wanna." This is shot 19 and have 5 more to go. They seem to be going by kinda fast but not really. The crappy thing is since I have been back to work. I have to work Friday and Saturday after this lovely shot. My job has been somewhat understanding. My GM created a job or tasks to do on these BUSY nights. Take to go orders, quote wait times b/c that can sometimes be 2 1/2 wait for some. All around just doing random stuff to sit on me bum. But even doing that can tire me out. I commend anyone who works even at a desk job while on tx. IT BLOWS!!! 5 wks here I come!
