does interferon destroyed my soul?

Hi, I did take IFN alpha together with sovaldi for 12 weeks. That was 3 months ago. I cleared the virus. My ability to focus and for example play guitar is totally wrecked. I was so happy before treatment. Now I can't properly talk. I feel like I lost 50 points lent IQ.
I'm only 25 and I'm about to kill myself if my soul doesn't comes back. I don't want to live in this shell tx left behind... Sad

Hi lookbehindyou.

You joined in December of last year yet never posted until now and it would have been a help if before and during treatment you would have posted so we could have answered any questions for you. Plus I'm somewhat confused on the fact you have been in the hospital for at least 5 months as you stated but only 3 months post treatment. What surprises me is that any doctor would have put somebody on treatment with Interferon in your condition in a hospital. Maybe that is something you need to check into. Best to you.

Hi there.  I have read back through all your post.  You have stated your getting out of where your at in February 2015.  That you are in a hospital setting and have access to medical professionals.   That your mother visits you, says your not the same person and you are locked up.

Appears you have lots of support in that situation to deal with the mental issues you claim to be having.   Giving you the benefit of the doubt....it would be best you tell your counselor, nurse or keeper you have many thoughts of suicide.  You've been accessing an online site and documented exactly what you been telling others.   You are well aware of anti anxiety drugs and they are for your current situation as you have told me your aware of.

People on this site have been extremely accommodating because we do want to help others dealing with Hepatitis c issues.  You do claim you've been treated and having some issued from hepatitis C drugs.   It's time for you to get help...We have given you the tools and now is your turn.  See someone and show them what your telling genuine caring people on this site about who you are and your suicidal thoughts.  

Best to you

Beside Naloxon... are there no drugs out there that help with brain inflammation? What about NSAIDs for example? Or drugs forAlzheimer disease? I would think that immunsuppressants would help too but that could lead to a comeback of the virus too....

no not suicide. OK a diet. That is a start.
How much of improvement can i expect from such a diet? In terms of percentage?.5 years sounds such a long time... were the symptoms going away after the 5 years? i mean im 25, i want my old self back. were the symptoms going away after 5 years?
