Today I have my 8 week Treatment Follow-up

Apr 08, 2008 - 2 comments

At 2;45PM TODAY I HAVE MY 2 MONTH FOLOOW UP WITH MY LIVER DOC. MY VIRIL LOAD WAS IN THE MILLIONS, THEN 346,000 NOW AT 1 MONTH WAS 12,700 "VERY HAPPY" I AM RESPONDING TO TREATMENTS.

TODAY...COULD I BE "SVL" (SUSTAINED VIRAL LOAD) OR NOT A POSSIBILITY? I STARTED TREATMENTS ON 2/8/08 AND HAD MY 2 MONTH BLOOD WORK DRAWN ON 4/2/08.

I AM VERY DEPRESSED, IRRITABLE, AND TIRED (I DO MY SHOT LATE FRIDAY NIGHTS) I HAVE A HISTORY OF SIGNIFICANT DEPRESSION, I AM ON MEDS...ALSO, I AM IN RECOVERY IN AA AND I'LL TELL YOU GUYS AND GALS....I FEEL LIKE IF THE SIDE EFFECTS CONTINUE (PHYSICALLY, MENTALLY, EMOTIONALLY) I DECIDED THAT INSTEAD OF STOPPING TREATMENTS...I WILL TRY SMOKING SOME POT. I'M GOING TO TALK WITH MY DOC ABOUT IT TODAY. IT'S NOT ACCEPTABLE IN AA, I KNOW..I USE TO WORK IN THE FEILD ALSO. MY RECOVERY MEANS THE WORLD TO ME, BUT IF I'M DEAD HOW VALUABLE IS IT. I'M JUST "KICKING IT" OUT THERE TO YOU GUYS........WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS AND EXPERIENCES???

FEARFULL AND GOING CRAZY (AND I HAVE THE PAPERS TO PROVE IT...LOL)

THANKS EVERYONE, THIS FORUM HAS BEEN A GOD SENT!!!!

WITH MUCH APPRECIATION,
