Hi all - Worrying is a full-on part of having this damn thing !
You know, you worry on diagnosis,
You worry when you realise what it can do to you,
You worry about who to tell due to stigma, work etc etc
You learn...and worry.
You worry about the health of your liver,
You worry about the health of your children,
You worry about extra hepatic symptoms,
You worry about accessing treatment,
You worry when buying the meds,
You worry when waiting for the meds,
You worry about customs,
You worry about starting treatment...
*brief interlude from worry once started and you feel initially brighter*
You worry about what you eat,
You worry about what you drink,
You worry about medicine interactions,
You worry about tests results,
You worry about EOT,
You end tx ....and worry about EOT test results,
You wait and worry about relapse,
You wait and worry again.
I am starting to worry about worrying !
No wonder we are tired and anxious!
Huge pat on the back to all and wishing you a healthier and happier post worry time!
ps I am still on tx and have itchy dry skin.
