Hahahah, that's awesome Ariel! I'm on Sof/Dac; Dr James recommended 16 weeks because I'm G3a - tougher to beat!
I know what you mean barely being able to get through each day, I just got rapidly worse in the past 2 years. Mind you there has been added stress in my life but I'm only 52 and shouldn't feel so bad
I started Homeschooling my son almost 2 1/2 yrs ago; I have several cages of birds; and just being a single mother and sole carer of a beautiful boy (who has ASD) that is highly dependent; looking after a house/yard; doing everything on my own is just goddamm exhausting. When you have a bad day and can't do much it all adds up waiting for the next day
It's been hot here around 31 C, God where are you to be 40 C one day and 20C the next?
I feel totally gross with all this sweating though and paranoid to be around the public.
I just got back from an appointment with a GP - not my current one - for script refills - spent 1/2 hr having to describe and justify why I have been prescribed these drugs e.g. Endone (love how autofill keeps wanting to put Undone - something to that
), Oxycontin - I use them as a last resort, not actually as they were prescribed for daily use. So I may use them for a few days in a row - sometimes I get migraines that last a week though - and then not touch them for a week or so. I also don't take them a few times a day because they make me 'hyper' and I can't sleep.
Now I have to wait to see my GP next Monday to inform her I started on the Tx. I'm hoping she will monitor me by doing requested blood tests at the 4 week intervals. Last time I saw her, over a month ago, she had been 'scared' off by the Specialist at the Public Hospital Clinic I go to.
He had promised to write a script for me, told me to do some research -referred to this site - and let my DR know. i told her about it and what I'd decided to do and she was happy to do tests. She eventually spoke to him on the phone to request script and then tells me he wants me to do it via him and she wouldn't have the experience with these DAA's to treat me. I contact the Hep Nurse he's requested I go through and find out he's promising everyone but not actually writing scripts at all! He's just telling everyone to 'wait' for the Gov to decide on passing the PBS thing (this is back in early Dec. ). I got pissed off and went through GP2U, got blood done, Fibroscore, ordered meds and started Tx yesterday.
So, like you, I took my health into my hands and went proactive - she' will probably be quite surprised!
Oh, God i'm drenched in sweat and can't stop drinking water. I'm the opposite re weight. I've always been a skinny kid/slender woman
but suddenly about a year ago I started gaining weight very rapidly and i'm horrified to be 65 kgs! OMG, i've only been that when I was pregnant. I can't understand it because diet/exercise routine didn't really change. It feels like 'fluid' mostly around abdomen, can't wait to shift it though, I feel very uncomfortable this weight.
Ok, I'm still 'hyper' and could go on but got to feed my boy and head off to a ceramics lesson
Have a Good Day
