Dear Life, Fara, Lynne, LG, Fitz, Sven, CJ, nads, Sabre, Coral and I hope that I haven't left anyone out Thankyou for the kindness
Coral I send you big love for taking time out to think of us while you go through another tx I am very humbled by your kindness. I am thinking of you always and wish you the rightful cure you deserve.
Thanks for the loving wishes for my child everyone it's going to be a long inpatient stay, but enough details here just thanks so much for your kindness.
Me? I'm recently diagnosed with severe TMJ and have meds if they aren't working in a couple of weeks then check up for something else. However the symptoms are classic apparently. Not that I had ever heard of TMJ but it sure is a beasty to have. It presents with similar symptoms to mild stroke, numbness in one side of face, hot nerve type pain that radiates, extremely sore neck and around the ear to the eye, migraine and if it's even possible increased tinnitus! The tinnitus was intense before but for the past three weeks it's ridiculous!
Not whinging please don't take this as seeking sympathy but it may be something to be mindful of for those of us who have had a lot of invasive tx, who knows where this came from huh!
The meds regime for it is just pills haha more pills just when I had kissed them goodbye apart from the BP pills which I need now also after so many tx experiences and I am aware others are also in this category.
Well the suns finally out, the surfs up, there's no wind for a change and I may get respite from the four hours of travelling to and from the hospital today. I think someone else is doing the caring today it's Saturday here in Oz.
I might just get lucky and get a few glassy waves yay! Flippers and fins crossed.
Sending my love and happies to all
Thinking of our GT3 friends who are retreating or waiting.
Goodvibes from Ariel
Here is the sunset on the way home from da big smoke after hospital visit isn't it inspiring #love

Good morning from Australia
A year ago today
One year today the 12 January 2016 a parcel arrived
Inside this parcel was the medicine that has saved my life
The process was easy
The treatment was easy
The FHC team at Tasmania were professional
Dr James was available for any issues I only needed bp advice personally.
I "sacked" the public hospital here that had treated me badly.
My GP and I followed the recommendations on FHC and we did all my PCR RNA and VL and LFTs etc privately at labs sourced because they had the most accurate assay range.
By Day 25 it was obvious I was cured.
I cannot stress enough
If you are unsure about your HCV and what to do get yourself treated
If you can't find help it's right here
If you want cutting edge latest tx come here
If you want real support come here
If you want hope not fear come here
So Thankyou Doctor Freeman and Greg and all at FHC
The 12th January is a special anniversary I hold dearly and thank you for making my life easier. No trips to India were needed no trips to Alcura in the UK....nothing fancy or complicated at all!

All the plans I was setting up in desperation after my experiences were pffht off in a moment, when I found I could access my cure here at FHC so easily, so professionally, and surrounded by supportive people with knowledge.

Dear peeps
Thanks for reading and supporting my statement about getting tx asap and about how easy and professional this ordering and treating business is.
The last three days have been great for surf and I have paddled every day in a row which is remarkable because well, if you could see the carcass that I was from peginf and how hard I have had to work to rebuild what was left of me and my life.
I'm a cheerful person whose profession was robbed by peginf riba for no reason at all and I have got through all this time. I'm private about my old status because of my career. And I am a mum of adult kids.
Anyway
It's up to you
At the end of the day we need to become our own messiah in this game of Russian roulette

So here's some pretty pictures of our changeable Summer waves and weather anyway to celebrate freedom
PS I still need naps
Ariel
