Thanks LondonGirl! Day 2's dose is an hour away - feel like I'm in the swing of it now. I've had a real sloth cave of a day. I think it's an emotional hump - memories of interferon horror. This is going to be different! :)

Way different - For sure !

I can imagine the emotions - I am waiting for my meds and seem to be on a high right now as I finally have hope :)
However, highs can turn into emotional outbursts in my experience - but you know, so what? Get rid of virus & get rid of all that stress that has been building up post failed tx on 'dirty' drugs or just anxiety if not getting treated at all - I guess we need to heal mentally as well as physically and we need to be more than a little kind to ourselves,

Don't forget to breathe !
(Hoping someone reminds me of my own advise when the day comes !)

Hi Paul,

"This isn't like that fucking Rat Poison [IFN], hopefully you will have a much better experience on your new meds".

The comment hit a chord with me today as I am trying to deal with some mice who have overstayed their welcome and shitting up the house. I am trying different bait for the trap and would never consider poisoning the poor things.

R.I.P. Interferon.

yours

J.

P.S. good wishes to Phoenix.

I am into the tenth week now of soft/dac and everything is okay (and I am assuming the stuff is still working!)

H Phoenix - a belated welcome and Good Luck on your journey. I too am about to start Sof/Dac, I was planning on taking them in the morning because I take other meds at night, so it will be interesting to see how I feel. Look forward to following your Tx also. :)

Fair enough mate, it's necessary to have some balance, too easy to obsess over tx, sx etc.
Hope all is going well for you with your tx :) #flower
