I have 4 weeks of treatment!
I always felt good at physical level. Diagnosed accidentally in 2015 with mild elevated ALT/AST. After 40s, I had basic blood tests every year and all was in normal range till December 2010. I couldn't believe what is happening to me. And yes GAJ, as you, I didn't tell almost anybody my problem. Antisocial behavior, fear of misunderstanding. Don't know from where I got hep C. Maybe cesarean in 1989. That's the way my daughter came to us. Maybe from the dentist.
I know that I had hep C for at least 26 years. Even with good basic blood tests. I know that my emotional problems were Hep C related. I am blessed with a wonderful family and especialy with a patient and loving husband. After I was diagnosed, the only good news was that my beloved family is hep C free. And it is till now!
I refused IFN in 2012. Because I had hope for new options to come in the near future. And I was right. The generics are here and are affordable for many many people, even if their rulers decided that they are too healthy to be treated.
It is amazing how I get used with this burden of hep C!
Only after 3 days on tx I felt a relief in the liver. After 7 days on tx I felt myself more light, as I put down a backpack with at least 5 kg in it! I felt the relief only when the burden was gone! At the emotional level the improvements are more amazing. I am calm and confident. I feel as I am back in time, feeling more alive as in childhood! Yes again, as you are feeling GAJ.
Don't miss to mention that my mind is much more clear! I am back to easy memorising! The last years I thought it was aging the cause of losing easy memorising and sometimes needing some seconds to remember words.
I didn't have side effects. Maybe because I want it, the miracle treatment, so much!
I feel the world much more brighter now! Like I opened a closed window.
Sorry for this long essay! I felt that maybe, other people will be helped reading this. As I definitely was by yours!
Happy that I found this supporting community!
Good luck and be all of you healthy again!
