anxiety

Jan 21, 2015 - 5 comments

over the last 8 weeks my health anxiety has been debilitating I haven't left my house apart from to see my gp and heptologist and a trip or two to the er . test after test showed nothing new just hepc lft was good but feeling this crappy made me finally learn more about hepc than just my specialist saying everything looks fine current treatments have less chance of working on Geno type1. today I took the bull by the horns and told my heptologist no I dnt want to wait for the next best treatment which let's face it the rest of the world has yet was rejected here n could b again in march coz its to costly. I only dream of harvoni as opposed to triple treatment and all its side affects so I figure may as well start now on the yucky treatment as the next best thing will only b rejected in 8 weeks like it was in December last year the sooner I start the sooner its over with and if it doesn't work I'm no further behind than I am now doing nothing I really don't want this virus any more I wish I could turn back the clock I so wouldn't make the same mistakes again myhealth means more now I have hcv than when I didnt I'll never take it for granted again

I recommend u try some medications for ur severe anxiety since the other methods may not be working on ur anxiety due to u having hepc. im in ur situation cuz I have hep c to and severe anxiety.i can relate to how u feel also. I know what its like to be scared of having a debilitating desease of the liver and have severe panic attacks due to my hep c. I think it would be a good idea to get prescribed a benzodiazepine like valium or colodapins. they work great when u properly use the medication. I know that there is a lot of controseversy about benzos. they are not as bad as society says they are.ive been taking them for years and they have worked great.but the catch is if u take too much u will just pass out or get high off of them.benzos are very safe when used properly. trust me im a living example of this bad illness and how my treatment of anxiety works greatly with my clodapins.. as for ur hep c if u need treatment for it make sure u do them or u could die. my sister in law had three months left to live.when she completed treatment her hepc just about disappeared and she been doing so well for the past 11 years. the treatment does work but it doesn't cure it. it just put the hepc in a dormant stage and makes it undetectable so that means the level of hep c in ur blood in so small it can not be detected by the doctors and researchers.and ur liver heals and begins to regenerate itself to be healthy. but u do have to keep getting tests done every couple of months to see if the hepc began producing and speading again. which is highly unlikely when u live a healthy lifestyle.my hepc is undetectable and is havin no affect on my liver. ive been very healthy this past couple of years and feel great. thankgod im healthy.i go back and get my liver emsymes checked every couple months to make sure im still healthy and my liver is healthty and functioning properly.by getting liver ensymes bloodtesting done it tells u how healty ur liver is and how well it functioning. the higher ur ensymes are the lower the level of hep c is.once ur hep c level starts to lower ur emsymes that's how u know if ur hep c is growing again or getting worse.so far ive been great and I have some hope now. before I felt like I wanted to die instead of suffering from the disease and feeling all the pain and liver failure.please get the treatment for hep c if u need it and get ur doctor to prescribe u some benzodiazepines to help with the bad anxiety and paic attacks. I was scared to deaf of this disease and was so scared to even walk outside on my front doorstep. I couldn't function right or do the dailey activities u have to do survive and live a normal life. I was even scaraed and anxious to walk into a shopping mall of go to a restaurant. if I can be of further assistance to u just ask me whatever u want. reach out to me and I will do my best to help u. from one women to another. women are supposed to stick together and help one another.i am my sisters keeper. I wish u all the luck in the world and I hope u can live wonderful and healthy for the rest of ur life.

be positive and stay healthy no matter what. seek the proper treatment and always ask for a second opion. doctors can be wrong sometimes to. get the bloodtest done and get the medications I recomenedid. they work better than any other anxiety meds ive ever had. they relax u and help ease ur mind of all them bad worries. nobody wants to live in fear and agony from bad anxiety and a bad disease.the meds work so well I stopped having my nightmares and among of lot of other things.

treatments don't always work on everybody but ive seen first hand that they do work for a lot of people,.its looks promising. just try them and stay positive.it wouldn't hurt to atleast try.i know that the treatments do make u sick but their are a lot of other meds that can help with that. like promethazine aka phingins.this nausea medications definitely works on ur nausea and vomiting from a number of diseases besides just hepc. like hiv cancer and stomach problems.all of these diseases and including pregnancy can cause mild to severe anxiety. its the best nausea medication on the market and they are very affordable too. ur insurance will cover it but if u don't have medical insurance u can still afford this medication for nausea and vomiting. trust me its the best!!!!!
