Last day of treatment
« on: October 26, 2015, 11:55:54 pm »
Fellow Hep C slayers

Tomorrow I'm being paroled from Hep C prison. To be honest, the last 3 months have felt like it. Not in a bad way but my eating habits have been dictated to me because of the meds.

Now I get to eat what I want, when I want and in what quantities.

FREEDOM!

Congrats DTH!
It is a great feeling. For those going through the treatment, keep your eye on the prize. It will be over before you know it.

Anything worth having is worth fighting for. Stick it out at all costs. The alternative is going through it again and good luck qualifying for it twice. The insurance company, VA or government won't be as willing the 2nd time around. Too many people still on the waiting lists.

Hang in there,

-Jeff
