Went to doctor yesterday and it was sooo negative. Just because my viral load was not zero at week 4 he has this sour attitude that I might be the 20% of geno. 3 that doesn't respond. But at week 4 it did drop - from 499,000 to 12,000. Granted it was not zero but he said "It is what it is and give it to a higher power." Whatever! Half the battle is mental and he sure did not help me. I have enough meds to go to week 12 which is when he will check again, 5/28/08 but he wouldn't even give me another prescription until we hear from the viral load at week 12. If I have to go more than 6 months I will as long as the viral load is checked and it is still dropping - it might just be taking me longer than others. I think what started it was I asked for something to take the edge off cause some days I get really down but not every day so I don't want an anti-depressent. All he wants to do is tell me to take advil or tylenol. I was so depressed after leaving his office. He should be encouraging me but the LADY ain't singing yet as I read someone say and I will push thru until week 12! Please help me to see this thru! And I know Almighty God has not given up on me and I won't either.
