Thanks to both of you. Yes it's been very trying. So much so that I am afraid of crying victory till 24 weeks SVR. This whole thing has made me wary. I still can't take it in. I've felt like a walking time bomb on and kept my worry under control for 3 years. I think I need brain washing to let it sink in. But before the forum has been of great help. Especially Kim and the other moderators. Thanks also to youAussie  Rose. I received so much scientific information too. Hope we all get And stay cured.

I'm actually not a moderator. I just blab a lot. Haha! ;) But I agree, the moderators here are great and extremely helpful! :)

I know what you mean about it being hard to believe the news about being cured after all these years with Hep C. It took me quite a while for it to sink in. In fact, it is probably still sinking in.

Hi, 1st time posting but reading a lot, nice to find a site that is happening now. And my user name says it all!
I'm 57, geno 3, stage 4 cirrhosis. Solvaldi, ribavirin and Daklinza. Started treatment 3/18/16 Get blood drawn every 2 wks. 24 wk treatment. On 4-29 test came back NOT DETECTED and has stayed that way. Side affects didn't kick in till about week 4 and then it was like getting run over by a dump truck. I'm a 2nd shifter and I sleep maybe 4 hrs and then I toss and turn witch doesn't help with my agitation. And I feel like a weepy little schoolgirl watching some tv shows. RBC is low and they cut down on the riba 2 wks in but I still feel run down and exhausted all the time. I see the doc on fri and I hope she say's I'm done. 1st time I saw her she told me there are almost no side affects and that it would be 12 wks. when her nurse called to give me dates for blood work she told me it would be 24 wks, because of my liver. I work in a shipping dept and the confusion and short time mem loss is scary it's to the point that I'm going to ask her if people take off for an extended amount of time because of side affects. Also I'm off right now because of vein things going on in my legs, so I have the added stress of waiting on short term dis to get ok'd. Ok I rambled enough for my 1st post   Thank's Jim

COG, welcome to the forums and  glad you found us!  Just want to let you know you have found the right place to vent, or ask questions, or give good news..... this is the place! HCV treatment isn't always fun or easy and there are people here who know exactly what you are going thru. Just hang in there and let those drugs do their thing to get you to the other side, the side of SVR. Keep us posted and the future is bright, FT

Crabby Old Guy - from crabby old woman, welcome!  This is a very uplifting site because no matter what happens, we are all together.  And we know how it feels.  Just try to hang on, I think us 3a's cure well! But it is hell and doesn't get better fast.  Then you can join us bitching about our side effects. :)

Hi and welcome,

 I think soon you will be calling yourself, not so crabby, new guy!!  I only did 8 weeks, so I can't imagine 24 weeks is any type of walk in the park, but I do hope things get better for you as time goes along.  I can relate to the sleep issues, and I try everything to help my insomnia.  I hate the tossing and turning too.  I had some delicious cherries last night before bed and I fell asleep fairly quickly and stayed asleep.  Actually slept 7 hours which is really good for me.  Once in awhile I take half a xanax, but I really try not to.  I considered melatonin, but I read that your brain will stop producing melatonin so dropped that idea!  Brie
