Tashagr -- Thanks for sharing the news!!

I was just remembering yesterday how badly I felt at this time last year.  Had been denied 2x by insurance co for Harvoni and my fatigue was really getting bad. I saw no light at the end of the tunnel. It was very scary. My husband and I were trying to figure out a way to pay for this miracle drug out-of-pocket.........

But when I finally mustered up the energy to appeal to my state insurance board, they overturned the denial and I started Harvoni on Feb. 23rd.  Will never forget this date!!
And while I am still not what I consider to be back to my "old self" 100%, I am so much better this year, and so very grateful! I believe I will continue my slow but steady progress to a better energy level and am looking forward to the new year -- so unlike last year.  Happy New Year to all! FT
