Just a note of encouragment to those on treatment wondering if your life will ever be back to normal, or if you will go through life "thinking" about "it" all the time. I am genotype 2 and did the 24 week treatment. It was no picnic, but I did survive. I am now 3 months post tx and feeling really well. I have my strength back, my hair is filling back in, and I don't think about tx or the disease 24/7. Honestly, I never thought I would get better, and could actually have a life after all those meds ravaged my body. My whole family really notices a difference in my countenance. Whoo hoooo! So those suffering and wondering if the light at the end of the tunnel ever comes...IT DOES! Keep postive and do what you can to get through the tx...it is worth it. So far I still have a zerol VRL...just did another test today...but am continuing to think positive!

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
