We mermaids swim in schools Mike
Beaches is on the surface checking the ocean floor for predator and treasure alike, with wisdom of an ol nylon cosie and pink headwear to show her secret mermaid status (this is secret inside knowledge of Mermaid culture I share)
I'm the young frother one who plays on the surface all the time catching waves and pearls as I ride, but I wipeout too and have guzzled a lot of salt water :silly: PS I wear black to show my younger status lol
That ocean swim at Beaches location is no picnic the wave at the north end there is notorious for heavy hold downs don't wipe out! I have there.
I hope I have cleared up this debate on the purity and salty water of our pair of beautiful mermaid livers hee hee
A watery "tail" at ya!
So flippin happy for you sister mermaid

Hi everyone

I have to say I'm feeling VERY relaxed coming up to 12 weeks post EOT. So relaxed that I'm not worried that I can't get back to the doc for 3 weeks after my bloods.

The months pass.
Sometimes fast sometimes slowly.

The odds are hugely in my favour, and in the unlikely event I do relapse, I have many options. More new treatments than I can keep up with, and if RPA can't help me I know I have somewhere to go.
Dr James I hope you know how this much means.

There have been many posts by people who are stressed out following EOT (including me). I read a comment in one of those posts implying that people weren't ready to live without the gift that keeps on giving.

Wrong, wrong, wrong.

IMNSHO it's more a case of feeling that the UND result is just too good to be true, more so for people who have been through the living hell of interferon. I reckon this is normal.To imply that people can't get into the mindset of being HepC free, well that is just weird to say the least.

Quite likely you have been feeling pretty damn fine during your treatment. In the weeks following EOT things will change as the meds leave your body. It took my body 9 to 10 weeks and a short break from work to stabilise. Looking back I realise I should have taken a week or 2 off straight after. I recommend this - do something that makes you happy, rest and take it all in. I'm aware it's not always possible but at least do small things that make you happy.

Feeling pretty happy and lucky that I have health back. It's a Big Deal

Here's a pic I took of a humpback whale while I was in Tonga earlier this month. Because cetaceans.

Hi B.,
thank you very much for posting this message.
It gives (at least to me) the peace of mind to wait with patience till reaching the 12 weeks after EOT.
I found also quite difficult the period that followed the EOT as the level of anxiety increased (having "ghosts" of possible relapse and no longer having the "shield" of the drugs - it makes me feel like sitting outside in the rain, not being sure whether I will catch a cold or not:) ).
I also kind of "stressed" some guys here on the forum asking them (via PM) how they felt and they were very kind to answer and encourage me. Many thanks to all of them.

Cheers,
RHF

Beaches so thrilled to hear things are feeling right for ya!!!! :) :) :) :) :) :)

I am so not surprised that being at EOT and SVR are filled with huge constantly changing emotions. When something has effected you for many many years with no clear light at the end of the tunnel and an occassional bit o hope thrown your way that leads to nowhere other than feeling worse, there are going to be moments of elation yet some trepidation too when you finally feel that :woohoo: moment. Shaking off all the bad feelings from before takes time I am certain of it

Enjoy the moment Beaches! What a photo even the whale is happy for you! :lol:
love and hugs

Beaches yes a very relaxed post highlighted by the inclusion of a humpback whale with someone in the water very close to that huge creature #love #duck

Good advice, I agree it does take time to to readjust to a life free from HCV. For me it was also 8-10 weeks of readjustment as you said and so it's good to know what to expect after meds are withdrawn.
