One year ago....
I was sick and really frustrated. My GI had given up on getting insurance approval. We couldn't travel to eastern Europe to see my wife's family for the 3rd year in a row because of HCV-an early July appointment with a new GI and the constant battle with my insurance company. The tail was wagging the dog.
One year ago....
I had contacted Artemis Health in India and was waiting on their call saying they could treat me with sofosbuvir and ledipasvir, because I had heard of some crazy guy who went there for sofosbuvir and was making his own medicine or some such crap. It sounded so insane at the time. I immediately began "digging"...
Nobody is crazier than me...
If he can do it, by God, I can.....
Then a name popped up to go with the "crazy" man: Greg Jefferys. And a place: Tasmania.
The first question was "WHERE IN THE SHIT IS TASMANIA?" The next was "How can I find this guy?"
The rest is now history.
What a wild and crazy year!!!
Headed to Romania in two weeks.
Leaving HCV behind.
Got a gozillion new friends.
Feeling pretty damn good overall.
Ain't that something!!

You cured yourself making pills from powders from some chick "Rachel" at Mesochem in China. Talk about sketchy! :cheer:

And then went on to help scores of people get cured, including me!!

Ain't that something!! :cheer: :+1:

You deserve much love from many, many people!! #love

Thanks to all of you.
We have helped each other get to a better place.
A global version of the Dallas Buyers' Club on steroids.
A guerilla war on greed, fought on the Internet, with brilliant, dedicated and caring people working together for the common good.
Still more to do.
