Haven't heard from you recently.
Mary, I am doing well thanks for asking.
I don't pop in here often but I saw your name on a post and wanted to say that I do hope you got to SVR. Take care,
Thank you Mary.
Today I heard Michael Moore speak at the Occupy site.
Then with a free Occupy silk screen poster in hand, walked home.
An old black man looked at me and the poster, and said, " bless you,child"
He made my day.
Honestly, I am doing okay, just have those moments now and then.
Normally, all I have to do is look at the beauty of the sky, looking up clears my brain.
Time to breath:)
Thanks for your encouragement. I wish the best to you, also.
Thank you so much, trying to thank each and every person as I get strength
Undetectable makes up for the side effects which are ruff
Mary - nice to see you. How are you doing? You should be over most if not all of your sx I hope. I am approaching my one month post treatment. These last few days I realized that I really am starting to feel better. I'm still hobbled by some fatigue and bad cough/short of breath. I have a dr.'s appt. on Monday for my 4 week bloodwork and they are going to check out my lungs. Wish my hair would start coming back - I even lost my eyebrows. I truly look like a chemo patient- lost over 20 lbs. which is staying off so far even though my appetite is pretty normal. I hope that you are doing just great - you should be about 3 month post treatment, right? Take care.
It's nice to see another member so touched by Buddhism.
Thank you Mary!...I really appreciate the support...I hope I will be able to smile again like urself...
gotta get over the SHOCK period...u guys have given me lots of help...I will keep in touch...congrats on ur results!
Thank you, for the positive feedback. I'm not telling anyone except my dentist or, doctors. My Family just would not take this news good. So I feel like I'm protecting them until I have this removed "I Hope". Then I can share what I want through..my husband is very positive and is my only support system here. This is why I needed to join a group like this....all the wonderful caring folks that fully understand HEP C and what it brings.
I am very glad that your nausea has subsided. Here's a link to the recipe that I used: http://www.wholeliving.com/recipe/chilled-avocado-cucumber-soup
I found that using an entire jalapeno was spicier than I wanted and so I added some more cucumber and that helped. Fortunately my cukes are in full production! Last night I made a lovely red potato, white and green bean salad using the produce from my garden (except for the white beans.) Very delicious - let me know if you are interested in that recipe. I found now that I've finished therapy I've lost my desire for animal protein. I'm sure you can relate.
You are so close to done! Have a great day,
Just a quick note to say hi! hope you are feeling OK Mary. I am at wk 31 and doing well. New Job is easy;-0! Still und @ wk 28 although went in @ wk 29. all labs are good and even up on hgb to 12. And I suspect you are close to done w/tx? Just think soon you will be back to yourself. Hope that is a good place. Hugs Gin
Just a quick note to say hi! How are you feeling? I haven't seen you much on the board. I hope things are getting stabilized with your bloodwork, etc. I'm still doing pretty well seven weeks in and sx are minimal. I took a good vacation and that cleared my head and seemed to ground me about this decision that I made to treat which I have questioned since Day 1. I hope that you are feeling better.
glad to hear that u are feeling crummy! yes a demo might avoid another incident. best to u, babs
Just a quick note to say hi! I am on the 24 week therapy. I have 10 weeks left. doing shots once a week and pills twice a day. This is the first time I have been treated. I am geno type 2. I have had Hep C since 2000. But finally decided to go on the interferon. I wish I would have done it right away. take care.

Just a quick note to say hi!
I'm on shot 5. I was having probs too with getting the top off. I was pulling and then I learned to twist it and then it just came off.
I agree with your comment that the more you drink, the more you want to drink. It's like your body knows whats good for it and craves a good thing. Good luck to you. I look forward to your progress towards SVR!!! Isobella
Just read your post, haven't "introduced" myself, so I wanted to say, best wishes on your tx! When I thought of you sitting in the clinic taking all those meds for the first time, it brought back memories!! I'll be following your progress. Lapis
Happy Holidays! Good luck @ your screen today. Mary...Yea get free of the virus
Heard about a great book that you may also be interested in:
LIFE WITH A HOLE IN IT: That's How the Light Gets In - The Wisdom of an Awakened Heart
by Vicki Woodyard (Paperback)
I am waiting on delivery so I can't tell you my reaction but from everything I've read it promises to be amazing.
Here's a suggestion for not losing a spill-your -guts-out, post.
First write it in on your word processor program. Once its complete, copy and past it on the forum.
I've lost way too many letter into cyber space and learned the hard way.
And they are terribly pollyannnaish on this forum so keep it clean or they may delete it.
Hope this helps.
Welcome to our community!
Happy Holidays! Mary hope your day is filled with lover and warmth and you have many joys to be thankful for
Merry Day I am going to the beach with my daughter We will beat this dragon when we tx cheers Sidne
That is a wonderful attitude you have! God bless, Marcia
Maybe you never got to see the insults, as you had maybe already gone to sleep. They removed that post from the thread. Marcia
I am with Marcia on this one she is a real peice of work an insult in every paragraph just ignore it and keep on posting
hang in there as there really are some nice people on this MH I also like Nomad and Janis and friends too
it helps to talk to people I have learned so much just be yourself and keep on sharing your views and beliefs
I'm very sorry that you are being personally attacked for stating your views and belief. Hugs, Marcia
