Hey Kel, haven't 'talked' to you in some time. I just looked at that foto you have on your 'piece' of this [thank God we have it] site, and to me it says...you live in a quiet but BEAUTIFUL world, and there is a well-defined 'path' in the center. Hang in. HUGS
I have had a few rough weeks - from Weeks 10 - 14 perhaps but am starting to come right now slowly with anti- depressants and a few other helpers. By right I mean managing the symptoms a bit better, I guess - breathlessness, fatigue, depression, anxiety, itchy, sleep problems, muscle and joint aches and pains, indigestion, dizziness - about the whole gamut of symptoms I guess, nothing too debilitating except the depression and anxiety.
Treatment is hard but once committed there is no choice because otherwise the misery is wasted.
Great beginning with the big viral load drop - congratulations - good news keeps it going!
Hey Kell...wanted to see how you're doing. I'm with you on the 'losing' [weight] thing, IF I start treating in January I suppose I'll find out about the Pegysus [interferon] type of losing...BUT, I recently had a horrible thing happen...I can't taste bacon! I hate that, but stay 'up' chica!...God is 'on duty'...take care
Just a quick note to say hi! kell hope you day is going well, happy thanksgiving..

Kell, it takes a lot of guts to start. Congratulations on making that first step. I did start with a VL about the same as yours but your scarring (the amount of fibrosis, shown as a grade) is a little worse than mine. It is probablay a good thing you are starting, especially since you do have symptoms (tiredness). I hope you are feeling okay. Hope you can sleep tonight.
You are not alone in this...I encourage you to become an active member here:)
You're going to do just fine, I felt the same way, it's fear of the unknown, not knowing what to expect. Relax, it's really not that bad. If you've had the flu before, that will be the worst of the symptoms, just think that it's the flu or your body's way of letting you know your immune system is working. The first shot was the worst for me, I felt like I had a slight flu for a couple of hours, take extra strength Tylenol and drink lots of water. I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers and please let me know how you did tomorrow.
Good luck, wishing you minimal sides today!
