I mean, if no-one ever had any side effects at all because they didn't want to mention them and then a person new to treatment got some, they may be really scared because they think they are the only one to get some, does this make sense? When people just tell me 'oh it's just like a mild flu for a bit' I have to say, I do wonder what a 'mild' flu is like, you know? Having said that, I haven't had flu for so long, I can't remember what it's like! but I have definitely had other very horrible symptoms since I've had this virus. Joint pain so bad I couldn't walk for example. Really don't want those to get worse.
I never suggested not to speak of your experience of sides while on treatment of course its important to talk
about how you're doing on treatment positive or negative.
What I did say was Id be mindful of not worrying about sides before you've started treatment.
